In this episode, William Grazione, Coach Gillis Pellegrin, and Coach Zach Richie continue discussing Bodybuilding Competition Prep with actionable steps to take after the competition. This bonus content includes examining a reverse diet vs. a recovery diet to implement immediately after competing, along with the pros and cons of each. Another point within this is setting up expectations that people will – and should gain weight after a competition. What is critical is setting up parameters for that.
Will, Gillis, and Zach will also touch on whether or not you can start building muscle right away after a competition and how to shift your mindset from focusing on the scale to focusing on athletic performance and bringing your body back to hormonal balance.
