    Simple question. Do you stop early and coast into show day or run right up to the minute?

    I have used T3 right up until Friday, ECA I dropped by Wednesday. Clen I always cut at least a week out as I can cramp up on it.

    From my point of view fat burners or anything else which would increase calorie expenditure is going to make "filling back up" harder once you have depleted.

    Be very, very careul with T3. It must be titrated down gradually. I hit a peak of 100 mcg and on Wednesday drop it down to 75mcg. I keep it there until I finish 2 days of post contest food binging. Then, 50 mcg for 3 days, then 25 3 days then 12.5.


    If you stop using abruptly, your hair will fall out among other bad things.

    I agree with dropping the clen the week of for exactly the reason you stated, but i run T3 all the way through and taper down after the show. Haven't used ECA is years so can't say on that.

    I use 50mcg T3 and cut that in half 3-4 before the show and with Clen I went from 120-140mcg and drop 80mcg 3-4 day before the show and have had good results filling out.

    Not a fan of adding t3 and if needed only a minor amount. I never stop fat burners until two weeks AFTER a show. Water pills same thing. I never do a reload of carbs cause I never Drop my carbs to low.
