    Flat during prep

    Iím in a deficit right now to shed some fat and my coach just cut my carbs again, I can handle the low carbs low energy and all of that but is there anything you guys are doing to keep from being flat in the gym in a deficit, I do like to have veins popping and look more full while Iím working out and the fullness in my muscles just isnít there right now.

    It's all part of the prep. It will all be worth it after the carb up on Thursday and Friday and the fullness you have on show day.

    My best prep advice: dont look in the mirror.

    Well, might not help a whole lot but i take 5 grams of L arginine and low dose cialis will help some, or viagara if you dont get side effects. Load up on Himalayan salt and lemon juice. It will help a bit, throw in a niacin pill but absolutely nothing replaces a good carb load at least for me. Tough spot man, but it will be worth it
