i m pretty sure its loose skin since i started to diet with a high bf%. i am currently using prep h with the saran wrap and will be using up some leftover thiomucase the last 3 days. i am not constipated at all and i dont eat or drink dairy products since 5 weeks out(except a little bit of eggs on carb depletion days). i am also using nolva at 20 mg/day.
Would you recommend using some t3 for the last 10 days as a last ditch effort(i have 10 150mg syntroids left over)
Thanx for the welcome BTW, you guys really know you re stuff!
I await your reply...
I had the EXACT problem as you described. Wylde had me do the daily double thing (on top of workouts) - two, 45-min cardio session "ED." I did this from 8 weeks out until a week ago. It wasn't until the last 2 weeks that I really tightened up in the waist. My concern is sagging skin, but I know that I'm a bit older than you
I've done the thiomucase, then tan; prep H, then tan and results have not been to my satisfaction. I may try the HOT bath with epsoms salt then prep H and into the tanning bed. I only have until Saturday.
I would try the prep H or thimucase! I also now there are places in my area that do waist raps! Basically a really hot towel around your waist that sucks all the water out of it! Most people loose 1-2 inches from just doing that. I have done it before(not before a show) and it worked great, though I dunno how it will work when you are extremly lean. You might want to try it!
It may take some time for your skin to shrink to fit your smaller waist - the younger you are the faster this will happen.
I don't go much over 10% BF off-season and still find what Xcel mentioned - it takes a bit longer for the skin to shrink to match the reduced fat mass.
As an aside - a funny story, relayed to me 2nd hand. A fellow (in his 40's) was doing the Body For Life Challenge. He lost a shitload of fat in just a few months, but was left with a lot of loose skin around his waist. In his after-photos, he used clear masking tape to pull his skin back for front shots and to the front for back shots!!! Couldn't even tell from the pics, apparently.
