Week 14 & Peak Week!
NPC Gopher State on April 18th
Peak week doesn’t look terribly different from the rest of your training with the exception of a different carb up day or your carbs may be a bit higher to keep glycogen stores in your muscle full and looking nice and plump with your skin tight. This is the week you drink 1.5-2x the amount of water. Some dehydrate and or sodium deplete at the end of the week, others drink lots of water right up until Friday night.
Your diet on show day may be rice cakes all day long with some honey and almond butter or it could be pizza and Gatorade. It all depends on who is prepping you and what works for you as everyone’s body will respond differently.
This year I will be competing in Figure Open Masters 35+, Figure Open, Bikini Open Masters 35+ and Bikini Open. Should keep things moving along! Last year I competed in only figure.
I have been contemplating not doing the May show. I am tired and this takes over your life. We will see.
Morning Selfie 😀
These are two seasonings I use at nearly every meal. I put cinnamon on my oatmeal and sweet potatoes and the kickin chicken gets dumped on my veggies, fish and rice!
And, I got my crack waxed and my hair did!
