    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
    Struggling with this. Thanks.

    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).

    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


    -Matt
    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?

    -Matt
    Would you run that stack the last 12 weeks?

    Much appreciated,

    I have just trained and eaten like a Bodybuilder every single day and put in work. My chest unfortunately NATURALLY is good, but I partially tore both tendons!!!

    So every time I build up strength, I push hard and strain it again!!! Then go back to lighter weights, machines etc... so now my chest is highly criticized from judges and audience from feedback I get.

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?

    That would only be necessary if you were going from a show, in contest shape, yet have a 8-12 week gap...

    Sounds like you are getting great results on twice a week high carb days... I would just keep rolling with that, add the thermos etc...

    It wont hurt,,, but I am not sure its really needed.

    Sure do not deplete or lower --- just stay on same carbs you are in shape with, given YOU ARE IN SHAPE!

    Then just perhaps take a mild diuretic or manipulate water and sodium a touch the day before.

    I believe its an angiotensen 2 antagonist.....not so dure it replicates triamterene.... then you are left with non potassium sparing HCTZ...

    Id stick with dyazide. I would avoid potatoes, dates, raisins, yams etc.... your ratios could get so skewed ,,,, you could risk severe cramping and heart problems from hyperkalemia
