    guys have made it to the Olympia without a coach. years ago no one had a coach it's a relatively new concept

    Hi Matt!

    Do you have any more tips or advce on the matter of keeping the feel good feeling high during contest prep?
    The nicotine helped a lot!

Precontest because of fairly good genetics was able to do pretty well with those compounds.

    If you have LEGIT (verified ) primo and master on --- two AWESOME but highly faked for other hormones -- you can get into awesome shape and make GREAT GAINS!

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

    *Assuming, I am ripped going into the last week, and my carb intake has been around 100gr per day, How many carbs should be consumed Tuesday and Wednesday to then dry out Thursday/Friday?

    *How many carbs should you consume on Thursday? And Friday before you cut out water?

    *How many carbs should you consume on Saturday before prejudging?

    *How much water should you consume on Saturday before prejudging and until what time?

    *How much water should you consume after prejudging going into the finals?

    Thank you very much

    Well --- did you load prior and experiment to see how you react on "x amount of carbs"? If not, that really is unfortunate, but that is a broad guess!!! 400g two days is safe, but might not touch you if stripped of BF%%

    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

    DO you need a prep coach.......Hmmmm...... Do you feel you can look at yourself and be harsh and realistic? Do you have knowledge on insulin/glucagon/super supps/ etc etc to work in harmony to dial yourself in MOST EFFICIENTLY -- ok ok I am getting to over the top,,, bt I am sure you can get yourself into shape, but whatever you feel comfortable with. I always did my own prep as I have done 30+ shows and learned lots.

    You are full and pumped in gym from water and normal electrolytes.... hence if shredded, you don't need to screw those variables up from normal!!!! Diuretics and poor water control is culprit of loss of pump/fullness.... burger and fries might spike blood pressure and bring veins out, but could tighten ad flatten you out more - but TRICK you into thinking you are fuller from veins and body temp increase,,,,, water ingestion will help more than burgers.....

Now I'm figuring if I wanted to use a LOG or -R I'd have to get up, eat a minimum of 50-60 G fast acting carbs, pin the LOG or -R @ about 4:15 and get to the gym and be drinking a peri- workout drink with HBCD carbs and BCAAs during the W/O. I'm set on wanting to do this pre-workout. All protocols I have seen have people going high carbs all day and using either pre or post W/O in the evening.

    Which of the 2 would you say would be best for this application LOG or -R and would you say this timing would work since it's basically 1st thing in the am and not after a day of loading?

    Thx for your time in advance. TN
    Eat a nice egg whites + cream of rice meal right when you wake up (1/2c dry weight of cream of rice (78g carbs)

    Pin -- 5-10 iu LOG 20 mins ore workout --- have your drink made of 50-100g of carbs + whatever else you throw in there,,, begin sipping right after PINNING, then dilute to last whole session.

    Then down 2-3 rice krispy treats squares (blue wrapper) + whey isolate shake immediately post training --- then 45 mins later whole food

    I'm assuming going into final week fats are near non existent apart from Omega 3 supplementation?
    30-40g total

    What is your thought?

    I always suffer from pain when on contest-prep using injectable winstrol (Aquaeous suspension) where ever I inject it ED into (quads, delts, glutes, ventro-glutes, pecs, biceps, triceps, etc...)
    The post-injection pain lasts for 4-5 days.. No abscess or infection though (using pharma grade winny suspension) but the injected sites is always very sore & can't even train maximally..

    Can I just use the oral version of winny and get the same results as using the injectable version?

    FYI, I always use the basic in my pre-contest cycle : test-prop, tren-ace, mast-prop, winny, proviron, clen, t3, little anti-e (no HGH & slin).

    Thanks a lot, Matt...

    inject winny has caused MORE INFECTIONS than any inject I can think of -- plus lumps and redness... crap if you ask me!

    Oral is the way to go --- end of story.

    Matt this thread just keeps getting better n better. My question is about liquid clen. Do you think it's ok and would you cycle it or run straight. I'm currently on 250mg test a week bridging until my next cycle for 8 weeks.

    Two HGH questions.

    What do you think the best way to test your hgh is?

    What is the best way to run it offseason for an endo?

    You can run clen straight through --- it will die off a bit, but nonetheless its still working at a good capacity regardless of "feeling it."

    Get a serum GH test to know if blood has GH In it -- then get IGF-1 tested to see how you personally convert the GH to IGF-1 in your unique body.

    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

    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?
