    The Battle for Biloxi Prep

    Hey guys, Def. doing a show here. Was gonna do the caveman in st. louis but i found out yesterday that it's not happening this year so i'm doing this battle for biloxi instead. I'm about 9 weeks out at the moment and i've got some questions.

    My weight has really been stuck for almost the last 4 weeks here. I haven't deviated from the diet at all so i can't fathom what's going on. I'm also most definitely getting way leaner so i don't understand how it's happening. I am on Tren and Test Prop at the moment for the prep but still. wtf is goin on?

    should i be drinking a certain amount of water at the moment? i haven't been monitoring that much at all....

    As for diet i've been using my heart rate monitor on a day to day basis to decide how many calories to eat. Take my base rate add the cals i burned during my cardio and training sessions and then subtract off the deficit i want and that's how many cals i eat. Now up until like a week ago this was working very well. I've been cycling calorie deficits between like 700 and 1000 and it was all goin good, cycling carbs to an extent to even though i can't have a SUPER low day except for sunday when i don't train. But anyway so the last week or two my heartrate when i train just will not get near where it was in the previous weeks.......and it's really ****in with my head. I can't see how it can happen and it's making figuring out the diet much harder.

    Just today i added my second cardio session.....45 min. twice a day now and i'm still training as hard as always.

    I did get a job moving furniture last week but after experiencing what it did to my energy in the gym and the fact that i had to put up with people smoking pot in the truck on the way to the job i quit.....i'm not putting up with that shit.

    So before the show i've still got to get the posing routine together and posing in general i really really really need to work on.

    questions comments answers wanted and welcome.

    well the prop can cause you o hold a bit of water...and you should be drinking around 6 litres a day...also what does your diet look like...post it up or shoot me a link man....

    you should be posing an hour a day right now, at least....even if you dont have music hold each pose for 30 seconds switch...do this through out the day whenever yo can...it will get you used to it and psoing is hard work man....plus a good poser looks way better up therer....

    so with the water intake it's kind at the moment as much as i can humanly drink? lol. I'm practicing posing sometimes the problem is ya know that i don't know what to do to correct the poses. I have a couple guys i know around here that may know their shit enough to help me out, gettin on that this week.

    your diet is a bit off man to be honest....i dont trust the way you are using the calculator and heart rate thingy...i dunno...like stuff like peanut butter and shit should be gone, long gone...you should be super strict right now...go look at my contest diet and follow it and you will see a huge difference immediately...you are not far off, you are coming along well, but your defiviet is misleading you...you think you are burning more than you actually are i think....

    well it worked for the first 10% of bodyfat that i dropped......and now i'm burning less calories according to it because my heart is getting healthier i guess and not working as hard.....but anyway.....where's ur diet? i looked at all the threads you started and nothing within the last year stuck out.....

    well this last 5 days was the first time on this low carb business so is that enough of an adjustment? i mean it did get the scale moving again. And then today i'm supposed to carb up alot and not worry about my calorie deficit. I don't see why the deficit way i've been doing it wouldn't work when i'm continually increasing it.....started out only doing a 500 cal. deficit a day. And if i were to not do that then how many calories do you think i should be eating? also you should know that the weight stagnating coincided EXACTLY with when i started my cycle for this.

    in other words there wasn't a calorie deficit yesterday. I don't really feel that that's ok but i was told vehemently not to worry about it.
