    I'm bloated, ankle edema, shortness of breath just putting socks on.. Is my body trying to adjust? Drinking water makes it worse. how do you ease up into the off season? blood work was good.. So I'm thinking my body trying to adjust to sodium/water/carbs?

    I'm confused , appreciate your input and help

    this is happened to me pretty good. Wish I would have seen this earlier because I wouldn't wish this bloat on anyone. Terrible feeling.

    I dropped my carbs and fat low for a few days, wore sweatshirts during workouts and added little cardio sessions in. Lost 8 lbs in one day.

    Hey Matt have you heard of anybody taking HCTZ for a show? I rather have dyazide but it is hard to find but I do have HCTZ on hand. Since it is not potassium sparring, how would I incorporate it into my contest prep peak week? Should I supplement with potassium pills and I should be fine?

    This is beyond my scope of education and knowledge, but I believe only hypertrophy will take place here --- not actual splicing of muscle cells --> via "HYPER-PLASIA" ---> which is proposed to happen with exogenous IGF-1 usage or supra physiological amounts in local muscle. Cells are pre determined and set in stone.....unless there truly is proof and research to back up excess exogenous hormones be it androgens or GH/IGF that elicits NEW cells.....

    another quick question, i saw you saying earlier in the thread that running npp and tren together will ensure maximum dryness. however, npp does aromatize so it could hold water. would you run npp and tren together up to showtime and cut all injects at 3-4 days out? and then let the backbone harderners (tren enan and mast enan) continue their job?

    appreciate your input!
    There is some aromatization with nandrolone --- but with proper AI usage, and perhaps keep test OUT or super low,,,, you could yield a high quality look! I have seen this combo work awesome on some, and others are just too sensitive, but its usually a testosterone/estrogen issue.

    The melting point of yohimbine HCL was a pain in ass from what I remember... not so easily dissolved etc... use lipoderm Y or ultra or yohimburn

    Or dump liquid helios into dmso or phlojel perhaps (just an idea).

    Have you had the pleasure of using Humatrope or Serostim?

    Do you think Dennis James Mtut (slow positives in particular) makes sense?

    Are your backbone hardeners usually run at a minimal dose?
    For example 200mg ea? Is it safe to assume with more experienced clients, the short esters will be higher mg wise than the "backbones".

    But If i want to start slowly loading carbs on friday, how do i manage Salt and water consumption on friday and saturday (with HCTZ) ?
    My Prejudging is saturday around 2pm and final is in the evening (perhaps after 8pm)
    Should i stop Salt earlier friday ? 2pm ?
    What about the high water intake ? only at the end of the day ?

    Thx
    I would dry out first on Friday -- then start carbing early Saturday,,,, you will be safe this way,,, DRYNESS 1st,,, FULLNESS 2nd

    HCTZ only if needed.....

    "I do believe in site/spot reduction when on a supra-physiological dose of hormones and already lean, but have those damn last little areas that are stubborn ----glutes, lower back, lower abs....

    I believe in Helios and also topical fat loss given you are doing cardio, insulin is controlled and calories are deficient.

    When researching helios start with 1/2 ml or .025 per side of body.

    Give the lower back small "botox-like" injections per side --around 5 spaced out. Then repeat on the opposite side.

    As you get accustomed to the effects you increase dosage -- up to 2ml max....

    I do not see a huge problem using the same pin to complete the multiple site injects either....

    I also recommend combining this ON TOP of topical yohimbine HCL + capsaizen to really target stubborn areas...

    I look at it like this --- Either catabolize 1/2inch off your biceps and quads for the lower back or abs.....or give those areas a REASON to oxidize by using these awesome methods...."

    Is this something you still recommend?

    Thanks,

    Deak
    Yes --- absolutely.... yes yes

    could make you go flat rapidly if over done... keep water intact,, keep coconut water in the equation, and eat some yams/potatoes every few meals to keep potassium elevated a bit.
