• BioLayne Video Log 17 – Don’t F*** Up Your Peak Week (You are not smarter than your body)

    Posted In: Contest Prep  /  Posted On: 06.13.13

    In this week’s BioLayne Video log we examine some common peak week practices like cutting water, cutting sodium, and adding diuretics and discuss why they are suboptimal and what the science actually says.

      Layne, thanks for sharing this perspective. I love your honesty and scientific basis for the advice you give. I thoroughly agree with the “you were holding water on stage” being short for “you weren’t lean enough”.

      Looooooved the intro “Not another metabolic damage video” hahaha :) you have me cracking up! & one of my personal faves of the video …the “Ta-Da’s” !!! Great video as always Layne! :)

      Layne, does an aldosterone blocker taken earlier in the week do anything to make this “guru recipe” hold more water scientifically (pun intended)? That was the only twist I got from my guru – otherwise you nailed it.

      Fortunately I’d read your bb.com articles and ignored all that advice.

      Hi Layne, thankyou so much for your knowledge. I have a show in 4 weeks and am wondering what do you consider a normal or good amount of water to be drinking daily, im currently drinking 4 ltrs a day, ive heard that some guys increase it upto 8 or 10 ltrs the week of the show, is this good or more BS, really appreciate some advice with this, many thanks Layne :) And best wishes for the birth of your son :)

      I just finished my first bikini show June 15th and I went thru what you just explained!! I looked better the day AFTER my show! I was so frustrated!!! I thought too its because I didnt carb up enough! Thank you for letting me know what actually happened. I didnt take any diuretics but I did do the whole up sodium, cut sodium, cut water. Grrr, I want to try your way…where would that video be?
