Everybody has a theory on what you should be doing the final week before your competition known as peak week…
The lessons I learned on my road to pro is that you have to get 3 things ABSOLUTELY right to nail peak week:
1. Water and sodium amounts
2. Carb and fat ratios
3. Final workouts (which body parts you need to hit)
All 3 of these things have a specific timing and if they are off, you could end looking soft and leaving empty handed. AND I also want to be very clear…
There is nothing you can do during the “peak week” that is going to fix something you haven’t already accomplished during your contest preparation. You have to be ready to step on stage at one week out!
SO forget the hocus pocus you heard. No excessive carb depleting, loading or dehydration is needed if you have followed a healthy prep program 🙂
