This is a fantastic blog which shows that contest prep, especially peak week for bodybuilders is truly individual. There is not one way that works. There are a few rough guidlines when it comes to peaking but it all comes down to a persons individual physiology and also what they did leading up to the contest. I myself have had many competitors with the exact same weight do completey opposite peaking strategies. I've carb loaded indiviuals, fat loaded, and also have done nothing more than manipulate some water. Individualism is key and also working with someone and etting to know their body.

So many competitors see what one guy did and tries the same thing and look terrible doing so. Then they go off and say so and so's methods don't work. There is not one recipe that works and its more about the chef.
