Podcast with Alberto Nunez

Alberto Nunez first stepped on a competitive stage in 2007, and then the very next year he earned his pro status in virtually every major natural organization. While Alberto Nunez is relatively new to the sport of competitive bodybuilding, he has played a vital role in promoting the natural movement. His contributions as a coach, athlete, and an author have helped propel some of the growth the sport has seen over the last decade. Despite all this success Nunez claims his most successful accolade comes in the fact that he gets to be called Coach Nunez. “My biggest thrill is that I was lucky enough to be one of the founders of Team 3DMJ. I can honestly say we as a team have changed this sport we love for the better. Everyday I am thankful that I get to be part of this movement, alongside Coach Helms, Loomis, Alberts and Valdez.”

In this podcast, Alberto and I discussed the following topics:

1.For people that might not know what are we talking about when we say peak week, could you briefly explain?

2. What are the biggest mistakes you see people do during peak week?

3.Compared to the pre-contest diet as a whole, how much can you potentially benefit from manipulating sodium, water and carbohydrate during the last week?

4.What are things you absolutely should not do the last week before stepping on stage?

5. What are your general recommendations when it comes to training, cardio, nutrition (carbohydrate, water, sodium) during peak week?
