2. PEAK WEEK is when you will look your absolute best but, it comes with 7 days of extreme hunger, fatigue, hormone imbalances, and weakness. For those of you who don’t know, peak week is the week before you step on stage and normally most competitors will be drinking loads of water and even cut carbs to achieve the “dry” or “shredded” look. We look lean as possible, but, deep inside, we just want to crawl in the corner and sit there. Most competitors try to front about feeling great during peak week, but we are all at a low caloric intake at this point. And I’ll speak for all the women; OUR BODIES ARE NOT MEANT TO BE THAT LOW IN BODY FAT. You are going to feel super uncomfortable.
