The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    What to do 1 week out from meet?

    Unfortunately I am one of those people who teeters in my weight class. I seem to be right at 220 today but I know if I take it too easy all next week I can easily put on 5-7 lbs. On Mon. I will be doing some real light squat and bench because if I do not I tend to get super tight. I will probably spend most of my time on a bike and treadmill quickly walking.

    Also I want to make sure I eat just enough. What are you guys eating the week of a meet? I know if i control my salt I can keep the water weight down.

    Like you said, just control your salt and eat enough to be satisfied. If you can weigh-in the day before, just drop some water weight for a day and you should weigh fine. If you can't weigh-in early, weigh yourself early in the morning and, if you have to, sweat it out.

    The week before my last meet, I ate everything in sight. I wasn't concerned about weight classes though. Hmmm, only 18 more pounds until 308+.

    Majority of my meets have 2 hour weigh-in. So, I have to manage my weight year around.

    1-week before a meet, I'm on a high protein, low carb diet. I use a lot of AtLarge Nutrition Nitrean, Opiticen, ETS and Results. My whole food is baked chicken, tuna fish, egg whites and salmon.

    Also, I take the week off from the gym to rest and recuperate too.

    If you need to drop a quick few pounds, try 4 pills of magnesium citrate at lunch the week leading up to the comp. It will clean you out with out dehydrating you. On a 220 pound individual, it's probably good for atleast 4-6 pounds.
