            • Hey Layne, I was wondering how being a natural bodybuilder has helped you as far as fiances go? Feel free to answer when you get back from your honeymoon. Have a great time and congrats.

              • This question is NOT directed at Layne, who I hope is having a wonderful time with his new wife, but, rather, at the other knowledgeable members of this thread. Here's the question:

                I'm 12 days out from my first show and very confused about carb loading/depleting. Right now I'm on 75g daily (2/3 cup buckwheat in morning, 3 oz yam post workout, and 2 cups brocolli spread throughout other meals). Layne says nothing drastic as far as carb loading/depleting. What would Peak Weak look like for somebody who doesn't want to do anything radical? Also, I will not be super shredded (only about 6-7% bf probably).

                Also, I am wondering about protein intake the day of the show. Layne says small bites of chicken every two hours, but what about breakfast? Should i have my usual shake and/or 10 egg whites? Thanks guys,

                Sam.

                • i'm back! got a ton of shit to sort through in addition to preparing my speech for the issn on monday but I thought I'd share this humerous email I received with you all...

                  "Dude how can you possibly look decent drinking 66oz of water the day of the show?!? You must not have much experience in competing!"

                  It's more like 200 oz of water actually, and I'm guessing this guy has never seen pictures of some of the guys on my team

                      Post contest is a very difficult situation and if you go on a full out bulk post contest you are going to do nothing but get fat. Usually what I do is take the carb amount that the person was taking in before the show and add 50g to it, while keeping protein & fat the same, maybe slightly higher on fat. After they stop gaining weight from this; I add in another 20g of carbs & 5g of fat, when they stop gaining weight on that; I add another 25g of carbs and so on and so forth. typically it takes about 10-16 weeks to get back into a full blown offseason; but done right, the fat gain can be kept to a minimum

                      this was also posted by madman911 on my forum and I thought it was right on target

                      "We've all heard of the anabolic rebound after contest prep, and many gurus advocate eating like a horse immediately after a contest to take advantage of the huge lean gains possible during this period, but I gotta agree with Layne that it doesn't work that way. The body wants to get back to its baseline body fat levels ASAP, that will always be the body's first order of business when your body fat is literally at starvation levels. I don't agree with the assertion that the body tends toward lean mass gains when body fat is low, I believe that the body likely gains lean mass most efficiently when a threshold level of body fat is achieved. When the body is satisfied that it is no longer in immediate danger of starvation, then an environment promoting lean mass gains is created. The ultimate goal should be to gradually bring the body up to that threshold level of body fat in a slow, controlled way without exceeding what is necessary to promote muscle growth. Many bodybuilders no doubt believe they are gaining tons of lean mass post-contest (not saying that's you quelly, you seem smarter than that), when, in reality, they are adding 2 points to their body fat each week. Going from 5% to 10% bodyfat in the first 2-3 weeks post-contest seems very common and I'm sure most guys think they're packing on slabs of muscle and they are just 'holding water' post-contest and that's why they're looking smooth again.... Nope, you're just 5% fatter."
                      Layne- what do you do about cardio post contest, since by the end of the diet you could be doing 50-60 min of cardio a day..
