  • natural bodybuilder question for ron

    I heard you and dr. T talking about the last day or two before a show. What did you do the last 2 or 3 days before a natural bodybuilding contest? I bought your book off of amazon I enjoyed it.

    I would load water (2 gallons a day) AND salt from Wed-Thurs
    Stopped loading salt Friday and went down from 2 gallons to 1
    Cut water completely Friday at 10 PM and drank none until after judging Sat

    One mistake I made was switching to distilled water Friday and eating very low sodium
    This didn't make me any harder, just flatter

    I did load carbs, but in retrospect I would not deplete and load ever again. All it did was made me miserable for the depletion phase, it wasn't like I got crazy full or anything from putting the carbs back in after that.

      Only 2 days of water and salt load, Ron? Most use 4 or 5 days.

          Tried that, the body can't take it that long, at least mine could not. It starts rebounding

            If you are in good shape you don't need to do much as a natural, just dry out a bit for a day before the show. I was afraid of sodium, I've seen it destroy physiques in hours.

            Most people are flatter in the morning' we used to eat a steak late the night before. This was the late 80's early 90's.

              I've judged over 50 NPC and AAU contests and thought the water/salt load>deplete thing was foolish.
              As Ron and others already posted, it isn't necessary IF you're lean and ready to go.

              In fact, most look better at the night show finals ( then the prejudging) after eating junk and drinking fluids.

                Ron's water protocol works I've used and will continue to use it. Why over complicate things

                        I neither understood that about the weak mineralisation water. If you get tons of water and salt, the type of water you drink the last day won't make a difference.

                          Distilled water will dehydrate you in it's own last day major problems

                            I knew guys who would only use plastic utensils out of a wrapper because they were terrified of trace amounts of sodium.

                              I would rather not drink water than drink distilled water, lol. BTW, in Spain a few decades ago, many used distilled water for weeks before a show.
