CHEAT MEALS. Let’s be honest, I deserved a bit of a treat. I was so thirsty driving home that all I could think about was a milkshake so I went McDonalds on the M6. Banana. WOW! And when in Rome… so I had a burger too, then off to the Italian for Lasagne, Garlic Bread and I shared a few spoons of ice-cream with my little girl, nothing too crazy.

With only 9 days left to really dial in my condition before I ‘carbed’ up a little and dried out, I would now train every day on a push/pull/leg split ensuring my final leg session was the Sunday 15th (6 days prior to show) just to let any water and post training swelling settle. This session was also around 75% intensity, a good 90 minutes but nothing to failure, just a few different angles, good pump and a few things that focused on the squeeze/contraction to bring out that final bit extra detail.
By Thursday my weight was back at 99.1Kg
At this point I decided to make one final change in attempt to drop any remaining bodyfat that I could, I was already pretty maxed out with cardio and fat burners having re-introduced a few things after the NAC show (see contest supplement and PED blog).
Now I decide to train slightly earlier in the day meaning I could take out 1 more carb meal, so I took out 1 rice meal trained after meal 4 and then had 2 carb free meals with loads of veg in the evening giving me a final total Friday-Monday of:
New Daily Totals
Tuesday morning I was at a all time low (other than when drying out) of 96.9kg or 15st 3 1/4.
Time to fill out and dry up now – which means extra carbs and moduiretic.
