        Good question, I actually get this a lot from my clients. Much of this depends on what fitness level your body is currently in. In general, I prefer steady state cardio, but often times, once your body is in a highly adapted state you will simply have to do a higher intensity type of cardio. HIIT is a great way to increase your caloric burning and break through some of the contest dieting plateaus. I hope that helped.

          I Also Have another question about h.i.i.t is that how many times should i do it in a week, ive read somewhere that 3 times a week is enough, depending on what machine you use and today i did it on the stationary bike for 15mins, so would it be advisable to do it again tommorow after my weight training?

            Hi Tad!

            Thank you for your input. My question is:

            Are there different dieting strategies for the shredding phase of bodybuilding in regards to natural competitors vs. unnatural competitors?

              It really depends on your goals. Are you getting ready for a show? Are you on schedule?

                Yes and no... how your body burns fat as fuel is really the same with a natural athlete as with anyone else. However, natural athletes have to be a bit more meticulous with their diet, recovery, and cardio strategies in order to achieve the level of conditioning that most want to get in for a bodybuilding contest. I hope this makes sense?

                  Hi tad!

                  Seem like an interesting thread!

                  Quick question: How do you reintroduced carbs and raise calories after doing a long keto diet? Carbs every other meals?

                    First, I rarely have my athletes on "long keto" diets, I know Dave P believes in them but I just don't think it is ideal for everyone. But when this does come up it really depends on what the reason is for raising the carbs. Is this for contest prep or is this just cutting down and then moving to a maintenance phase?

                      Hey Tad.

                      I dont do well with carb cycling. Keto is the best way for me. What would you recommend when you're moving to a maintenance phase?

                        Well Simon85, you will have to move carbs into your diet slowly and progressively. Remember your sources will be critical for at least 6-8 weeks depending on how sensitive your body stays to carbs. Choose lower impact carbs that don't raise your blood sugar levels too quickly. The key is to monitor your responses, make adjustments to your diet as you your body's responses. You may need help doing this, because your body isn't intuitive when it comes to this stuff, it will tell you to eat!

                            Thanks buddy.. yes.. no cookies for you the night before! LOL... Every contest is an opportunity for anyone to learn more and more about where their weaknesses are and what we all can do better on the next time around.

                              Thanks Tad. Appreciated. I did started with carbs every other meals(30g). Choices are ezekiel bread, kammut, oatmeal, berries and sweet potatoes. I felt weaker for a few days in my workout. But now I'm feeling alot better and full of energy.
