I should, he literally can't keep up.

He just turned 9 years old and in spite of us walking him regularly and taking him on hikes, he just doesn't have the speed or endurance he had when he was a pup. By the end of the walk, I can just see him looking at me, "Dad, are we almost done?"

PEAK WEEK

That's it! Final "regular" workout. Now begins peak week.

Tomorrow is off, with the exception of practing my posing.

Sunday to Tuesday is depletion.

Next to no carbs, mostly just incidental carbs that ride along with whey, eggs, etc. Water intake will be 2 gallons or more if I can take it. Sodium will be increased during this phase.

Training will be two tire dragging sessions per day. The reason it is tire dragging is because that is almost entirely (pun intended) eccentric-less.

During depletion you want to emphasize the concentric to deplete glycogen and de-emphasize the eccentric to avoid soreness which effects glucose uptake later during the load. Legs will be trained on Sunday and avoided on Monday and Tuesday to give them more time to heal up and get defined (by eliminating any potential inflammation/residual soreness). I will also be including some band work and vertical jumps to further increase insulin sensitivity.

Wedneday to Friday is the Carb Load. Sodium will be minimized in this phase.

Goal of carb load is 6 meals with 0.5g carb per pound of bodyweight at each meal. Comes out to be 525g for the day (87.5g x 6). I will actually be taking in slightly more than this, based on how well I handled my previous carb load and the fact that this load is proportionally less than my previous load (based on current intake). On that note, I finished this diet taking in:

2967 Calories
106g fat
287g carbs
217g protein

Wednesday morning is one final tire dragging session to take advantage of the post workout window for glucose uptake as I start the load. Remainder of Wednesday to Friday is practing posing after each carb up meal to help drive the glucose into the muscle and of course, to polish off my posing.

Saturday morning is a few more small meals, some higher fat and sodium contest to help bring out that last bit of vascularity shortly before pre-judging.

My peak week plan is based on ABC's article: http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/precontestweek.pdf

And also from reading Layne Norton's articles and the Daryl Gee Project from T-Nation late summer 2010.
