Diet was just slow burning carbs w/ 8oz's of lean meat 4-5 times a day. Last 4weeks carb cycled. I had a water problems for some reason. For my second show we fixed that up using Lasix though.
Sense this was my first show it was a huge learning experience we severely underestimated my metabolism and actually ended up dieting too hard. I took a week off and ate/drank/partied and came back to start training and I was twice as hard skin was thin, really dry ect. Next year we plan on eating more up to the show, we ended up starving my muscles on accident.
Training was just supersets and drop sets and usually a stretcher for a finisher, just fast paced. Didn't do much Cardio just at the first but we found out I really didn't need it.
