    How do the pro's keep their skin so tight?

    Hi to everyone,

    I have gone from about 250 lbs to 190 lbs, my bodyfat is about 13-15 %. I'm happy, except with the skin on my stomach, it is still flabby (for lack of better word).

    Now take Lee Priest for exempla, in the Muscle Tech commercials he is unrecognizable, superfat, yet when he cuts for a competition his skin is paperthin. What's their secret? Or is it just because they go so low in bodyfat?

    I don't understand, where dos the skin go?

    Lose the fat and train---> no loose skin

    Suck 50%BF away---> loose skin

    shrink 40kg of muscle away in a week---> loose skin

    Now, I don't believe in million years you have loose skin on your stomac, you have 13%BF-15BF, so you still have fat on your tummy, that sounds more logical anyway.
    Priest does not go SLOWLY with his diet, he loses the fat quickly. Just read above my examples.

    Just cut below 10%BF And you possibly won't have that bloated look on your tummy.

    I am not an expert but for the contests they drastically reduce their sodium, and water intake several days prior to the event/photo shoot. Several weeks prior to the event/photo shoot they drastically reduce carb intake. I would guess the photos show them at around 4-7% bodyfat.

    When I was in High School my friend was cutting for a contest. He basically ate nothing but tuna and hard boiled eggs for weeks. Boy was he irritable! He couldn't wait to eat normally after the contest!

    Yeah, true.

    But trust me, when you see pro's unstage, they have much lower bodyfat than 7%. It's more like under 5%BF and even that's prety high on stage. This year's AC king kamali in my oppinion had 7%BF.

    They don't keep their skin tight, you see them at peak times. At this time they are dehydrated and very low body fat...and probably cranky too.

    Have you ever thought about filling up that extra skin with some muscle?
    Weight = 220
    Height = 5'9"
    Bodyfat = 7-10%
    Waist = 33 in.
    Chest = 49 in.
    Upper Arms = 18.5 in.
    Quads = 29 in.
    Calves = 19 in.

    Flexibility = Awesomeness

    7% is still fat on stage.. prolly under 4%.. Layne Norton had 3% bf on his competition and he's natural what more with the pros.
    "OBSESSED" is the word lazy people use to describe the "DEDICATED."

    yes I know it's fat on stage. That's what I'm saying, king kamali looked soft man, I even said it to my self before the reporters :P. Did you see his ab-pose? Man, SOFT! I mean soft for a pro on stage that is. I think Kamali had his best condition at ironman2005.

    Clenbuterol indeed, plus diuretics and tons of other stuff.

    Don't go and imagine that the only drugs pros take are the ones who make them big.

    diuretics, like aldactazyde. it pulls water out of the skin, which makes the skin look paper thin.

    For the muscletech ad, Lee stated he went without shaving for a few weeks, drank a ton of water to bloat, & stuck out his stomach.
    You can look way over 15-20lbs heavier if you bloat yourself & then stick your stomach out.
    No real pro goes above 15% in the off season.
    There is no excuse to get fat.

    you gota keep in mind tho, most people here are under 200 lbs, pros are in a lot of cases 300

    15% at 300, is 45 lbs of fat, 3% is 9 lbs of fat, so thats 36 lbs they need to srop
    15% at 200 is 30 lbs of fat, 3% at 6 lbs of fat, so thats only 24 lbs then need to drop

    so the pros even tho they dont get to as high bf, they still need to drop more weight
