The reason we use anadrol or oxymethelone 3 days out from the show is that it causes an increase in red-blood cell count and works doubly effective after you have run a carb depleation and started carb loading as long as you start depleating your water as with the increased red blood cell count it also increases the cell volumization once carbs are re-introduced due to gycogen loading and the glycogen being shuttled into the muscle cells wich is voulmized and increased due to the anadrol as it gives much the same effect as plasma expanders althoe much safer as it is my preferred method if i'm not with the client and monitoring their i.v. drip and blood thinners assoc. with using plasma expanders.(please don't ask how to use them gang as I don't feel comfortable putting this info on the boards as it is a very dangerous practice!) anyways in a nut-shell that is why it works and remember anadrol has a 72 hour aromitzation factor therefore you will not spill giving you take it the last three days and I also reccomend that you use proviron and arimadex to totally inhibit excess. estrogen conversion. best wishes wyldeone.
