View Full Version : 1 week till photo shoot, need prep advice
I am doing a photo shoot in a week and want to look my best. It's my first one so I am pretty ignorant as to what I need to do to prepare (aside from all the training I have been doing.)
Any advice or suggestion on exercise, diet plan and water intake would be REALLY appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance,

I usually treat a photo shoot and competition similarly as far as no diary at least a week before, cut out all sodium 4-5 days out, cut out water 24 hours before and then carbing up at the last minute. I also like using 3 to 4 layers of protan.

a mild diuretic is helpful but be smart about using it. i use jan tana when i compete and i also put preparation H over my abs and wrap them with plastic wrap. this dehydrates the skin causing it 2 shrink and make muscles more defined. u can put this on any problem areas. i cut carbs 4 a week then carb load the last 2 days but something different might work 4 u. also, my posing teacher who is a bodybuilder had me do full body workouts the week i am carb depleting doing 5 exercises per body part, 5 sets each exercise, 25-30 reps each set.

Sorry I just saw this post but just a couple of things for future reference. A few simple things but always seems to be a problem.
Get some sleep! Baggy, puffy eyes are not fun, makes it really hard on my makeup artist and more post shooting work for me.
And although you want to look your best, don't wipe yourself out the same as you might with a competition. I need your enthusiasm more than anything else. Lighting, composition and posing are the key to how you will look in photos more so than in a competition.
