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?

    Eating the week of the meet

    What's some input as to what I should be putting on my plate to eat the week of a meet.. as well as that morning of the show and what to take as the meet progresses along?...bodyweight isn't a issue as I am in the 275 class.

    eat what you'd normally eat. If you are trying to get a good bloat for the meet after weigh ins I'm a big fan of chicken broth, or chinese food and gatorade.

    I like to get a good bit of red meat the night before and make sure to eat something decent the morning of, but I do that before an heavy day so I know how my body will react to it, if it'll make me bloated, gassy, groggy etc...

    the night prior to meet day, I like a nice cut NY steak with potatoes and some form of veggies. The following morning I have oatmeal, banana, eggs and gatorade. Plenty of water is important as well.

    I'm eating like crazy this last week before my meet, I have about 5 pounds to spare. I think its going to help me quite a bit at the meet

    Sweet potatoes are good during a meet, as well as gatorade
