    Off-season endo should always run sub Q as it does have lipolytic action in fat tissue where administered.... small doses space evenly throughout day

    Sorry matt, I meant like what does and if it should be subq or IM when testing the gh.

    • Matt,

      I noticed a big improvement in your side chest pose.
      At 18, you had a gap between your bicep/elbow and 8 years later,
      your muscle bellie looks Full and now it's one of your best shots.
      I still have this weakness in my side chest pose after 6 years of hard training;
      Can you help me to improve this?

      Much appreciated,
      Bodybuilder from holland

      • Hey Mat, I remember asking questions in this thread 2 years ago and i i had no idea it was still going! Im 9 weeks out for a show (natural) and have been dieting since 30 weeks out. I am already around 6% bodyfat and im planning on really stepping up the shredding at 8 weeks out by adding in more cardio, dropping calories and starting thermogenics finally. I have been starting to realise that my body loses weight after my refeed days when carbs are higher so am considering doing like a 3-4 day calorie jump to reset my metabolism before starting my final stage of fat loss to get super shredded. Do u think this would be a good idea and if so how should i do it? macros are 35-40g fats 135-145g carbs and 275g protein on normal days with two refeeds a week at same macros but 300-350g carbs. I am also planning to be ready by 2-3 weeks out so i can reverse diet (add some carbs and fats severy few days) into the show as i have found from experience i fill out and actually lose fat when i do this after a long diet. Do you think that would be a good idea?

          • Hi Matt, just a quick question. Would you consider the diuretic HYZAAR which is made up of Losartan & hydrochlorothiazide to be almost the same as DYAZIDE?

            And also, if you were to be using a potassium-sparing diuretic such as DYAZIDE, would it NOT be wise to carb load on potassium rich food such as sweet potatoes & potatotes???

I always did my own prep as I have done 30+ shows and learned lots.

              • Matt if someone is forced to train first thing in the am at 430 how would you structure the first meal. Esp if time is a issue. Waking up at 4 to eat a meal before isn't really my ideal option. Would you do a shake then whole meal post or Intra shake? Im

                • This is very ambiguous/ speculative so I apologize. If one was to prep for a national level show in men's physique, do you think he could be competitive on 500mg test a week? As in- that's it. 500mg from point a 16 weeks out to point b show day, not coming off?

                  I'm not exactly sure of what's going on with mpd in terms of enhancement (especially if they can be 2-3% bf above the men's bb).

                        as canis said, this is a GREAT question and I also would love to know!! I have to train at 4 am and eating is just not doable. use an intra drink and this really helps. would love Matt to give his view

                        • Matt what is your thoughts on training for bodybuilding?

                          Should one stick to pretty much purely hypertrophy training in the 8-15 range? or Should you combine low, mod, and high reps within one workout like starting with heavy 3-5 bench, then 8-12 incline, then 15+ flies? or should you follow something like Daily Undulating Periodization like Dr. Zourdos recommends, changing from hypertrophy, to strength, to power on any given day tailoring it to your goals such as a 3:1:1 hyper:strengthower for a bodybuilder or 1:2:1 for a powerlifter? or something completely different?

                            I never have my guys measure day of show -- if you are super hungry and have time to digest before PJing -- have pancakes worth of 100-130g carbs,,, if sleeping in have a nice NORMAL meal of steak and rice -- 1-2 c etc... then eat again before PJing then keep it light and snack before PJ

                            Take in 8-12 oz between meals

                            Same pattern --- 8-12 between meals --- if very flat drink MORE

                            Hi Matt. Thanks for the reply. What's the reasoning for advising to drink the water between meals and not with your actual meals? Do you not advice to drink any with your meals on show day?

                            On another hand, is it ok to add in some vitamin C and dandelion root the last week before the show (starting Monday before Tuesday/Wednesday load) and run it all the way into Friday night?

                              Primo @ 800/week + Masteron @500/week + testosterone (whatever dose you are comfortable with) and you are good to go!

                              Would you run that stack the last 12 weeks?
