Hair removal stress

Hey guys . Stepping on stage in 7 weeks and I’m stressing out more on hair removal/skin issues than the prep itself! I’ve got ridiculously sensitive skin, a serious ingrown hair issue. Clean shaving with a razor is completely out of the question. I shaved with a razor for the first time...

I will be starting my first contest prep in over 5 years next week. I plan on getting on stage in August sometime. I've built in some extra time as I have a bachelor party in Germany to go to about 3 weeks before the show, so I want to have time to lose the damage I will do. I was going to start a...

Lifting heavy close to bodybuilding competition?

In the last month leading up to a bodybuilding competition, do you recommend lifting any heavy weights with low reps, at all? Or should it be all light weight and high reps?
