I made a similar thread last year but I would like to hear some opinions on the matter. Last year I ran a half dose of xpel for about 3 days leading up to my show. I didnt notice a huge difference but I did look good on stage I felt. This year I am leaning towards not doing one and I have never recommended one to a bodybuilder that I prepped for a show. I figured it would be better and more informational to throw this up in a thread rather than just PM'ing some folks. Give me the following info regarding your answer:
1. Do you think it would be beneficial?
2. Why or why not?
I am leaning towards no this year because I know that the body does a pretty good job of maintaining a solid fluid balance naturally and most of the water should remain in the muscle cell if prep goes correctly. Also, I think if I am lean enough coming into the show, it may cause a "pendulum" effect and throw the fluid balance out of equilibrium.
