I’m entering my second competiton this Saturday for Men’s Physique Novice.
this is my second contest prep and I experimented on my body during this prep. Carbs were always high 260-280g range most of the time, protein 180-190g and low fat 45-50 mostly. I seem to be able to take in carbs fairly well.
I used Layne Norton’s contest prep as a base last year and again this prep.
I did a 680g Carb load with (220p/60f) for the first day of Peak Week (July 1st)
My body did not change whatsoever, does this mean I have to load more for the next few days? Or just be safe and slowly lower the carbs by 50-60g carbs per day til Friday?
Maybe I’ve been doing too much cardio? (50mins everyday est ~300 calories burned + 8-12k steps) I’m planning to lower cardio by 10 mins til the day before contest.
Also I cut out Test at 3 weeks out
On Mast/Tren, Anavar and Winny only til show day.
Here are some photos of the day prior
July 1st and 2nd after waking up.
On June 28,29,30 I went slightly higher than my carbs 330g, 330g and 317g before loading it by 680g on Monday just to see if I could “spillover” and adjust, but when I woke up I didnt notice anything different .
