Pre Contest Prep
How To Prepare For A Bodybuilding Contest
Preparing for a bodybuilding show is a whole hell of a lot more than simply being the biggest guy on stage. That particular element is only important after you have achieved every thing else.
I have been to a lot of body building shows and far too many times I see competitors that just don't look like they prepared at all. Now, I understand that not everyone wants to make a career of this sport and that's fine. But if you are going to invest the time and money into it, you might as well go full throttle and WIN!
What usually keeps a competitor from winning is:
Half of the time, it doesn't even look like these competitors dieted at all. It pretty much looks like they stuck to their day-to-day diet and maybe did a little bit of cardio (if that). This gives them that "smooth" appearance. In other words, FAT!
Water retention also plays a major role in muscle definition. There are several ways to shed this unwanted water weight.
- Reduce fluid intake dramatically
This is definitely a dangerous method but almost every competitor that looks decent on stage has done it.
Consult with a physician before attempting this method.
This one bugs us probably more than anything. I don't think most competitors take their posing as serious as they should.
Your music should be a reflection of who you are or at least your attitude. Don't let someone else pick your music for you. And more importantly, make a half decent recording! Sometimes, it sounds like these people recorded it off the radio or something. It doesn't have to be professional quality, but c'mon put a little effort into it.
- Tanning Paint
This list could go on and on. Don't just have your girlfriend (or boyfriend) do your color unless they know what they are doing. This can actually be devastating to your physique!
A lot of competitors look at these shows as a "social gathering". But for the rest of us, it is a serious (possibly career changing) event. They walk around back-stage, pacing sometimes making everyone else more nervous than they may already be. For me, it just makes me uptight! The best thing to do is just sit back and relax and wait for your turn to go "strut your stuff!" Take some headphones or a portable video game but just chill out.
So many people just choose a suit because they like the color, they saw a pro wearing it, they like the style or they simply couldn't find anything else. We will help you find the "perfect" suit for your physique. As well as a color that compliments your skin tone.
