    he seems nice and all --- but from what i have seen he is always looking for a magic trick or special product to do the work for him...glucagon injections, lots of orals, fat burners etc...

    Just need to come in peeled but that could mean hollowing out the quads, which could make a structure issue more pronounced....you get the picture...

    It was slightly difficult to get pumped. But like I said, I kept sodium fairly high. I do have pics. Just gotta find them.
    Yes, that's me in my Avatar.

    Of course I was tired and worn out and never should have competed in 2011. Did something effing retarded for that and you live and learn.


    I am usually always like this ---

    If you`re shrinkwrapped a week out,you don`t need a lot of "tricks" to mess up 16-20 weeks of prep.

    Seen it a zillion times,guy looks great a few weeks out,day of the show he`s spilled over or too flat and stringy.

    So, would you say you looked your very best on the exact day of the show? As in you did NOT slightly digress since the week prior and peaked as best as you could have?

    Nothing beats a sound workout plan and diet. No water depletion no carb manipulation and defiantly no sodium manipulation.

    Aldactone takes several days to fully build up effects on the aldosterone receptor, androgen receptor and progesterone receptors. 3 days is thought to be the minimum to run it for some effects.

    Why would you opt to choose this androgen blocker (essentially what it is) over something fast , efficient like dyazide? Aldactone competes for the same receptors that proviron, halotestin and other orals are aiming for in the final days before show time.

    This antii-steroid (aldactone) has never made much sense to me? Just want to know why this over dyazide?

    Yes. Dr's prescribe aldactone for male pattern baldness, ACNE, Hirsutism (excessive body hair for women) , so it definitely blocks androgen (testosterone) receptors for these uses. Gyno is not uncommon from usage either. I just feel this product is not necessary.

    why?

    I am in my first contest prep so obviously you have a million times more experience then me but everything Matt is saying is dead on from a pharmacological perspective.
