• In need of peak week help?

    Posted In: Contest Prep  /  Posted On: 05.13.11

    Hey Everyone,
    I know competition season is in full swing now and many of you are starting to agonize over your peak week. Sodium, water, carbs, oh my! What should you do? There is so much information out there but 99% of it is nonsense. Unfortunately, I can only personally prep so many competitors at once but that doesn’t mean I can’t help the rest of you all out a bit! I recently did a complete ‘peak week’ video series for bodybuilding.com. You can check out the complete series here:

    Here is the the video intro to the series:


    I would also suggest viewing contest prep episodes from my old series, “Inside the Life of a Pro Natural Bodybuilder” where I discuss sodium and fluid dynamics in detail:


    Also a link to a thread where I further discuss fluid dynamics and sodium:

    And finally a link to my peak week Q&A thread:

    I hope you find this information helpful and relevant. I am on vacation right now in Puerto Rico to celebrate my 3 year anniversary with my wife, so I likely won’t be able to get to many questions in the next few weeks, but if you watch the videos and read the threads you will find it is likely your question has already been addressed.
    Best of luck at your shows this year!
    Til’ next time,

      Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
      I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
      “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
      the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
      her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know
      this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
