There are more and more fitness shows popping up everywhere, mainly due to the amount of people wanting to compete. Whether it’s men’s/woman’s Bodybuilding, fitness, bikini, men’s/woman’s physique or figure there is a division for just about anyone.
HOW TO GET STARTED
I would imagine you already have a solid gym routine in place, and a pretty good idea about nutrition. The next step is to decide what category you want to compete in. Guys have really only two categories bodybuilding and the now popular men’s physique. Unless you are trying to be a model then there are a few other shows based on just that. If you hold a lot of muscle and train to be as big and strong as you can BB is a good choice for you. If you are more interested in being big but leaner than a BB, great abs and a awesome fake smile men’s physique is taylor made for you. Either way you must train like a beast and diet like a pro. Find a show 10 mo away to give yourself time to bulk up and diet down. With a little room for trial&error. Its a proccess not a destination.
For you ladies there is a wealth of categories you can pick from. Bikini; very fit and lean but not showing too much muscle striation. Figure; a step up from bikini, very fit, show some muscle size, depth and striations. Physique; is more toward BB but not as big but the same conditioning. Symmetry like men’s physique is the name of the game, unlike men, legs are a big part due to the suit worn. And of course BB where size matters, thick muscle, balance, striation and fully developed legs.
FITNESS IS FOR EVERYONE
Anyone who has ever stepped on a stage had doubts if they belong there, they just pushed fears aside and did it anyway. People only see the best of the best in magazines and media. Let me tell you on an amateur level you will see all shapes and sizes. Some striving to get to the pro level, some just to cross it off on thier bucket list. Either way its a great experience for anyone willing to try. I’ve done a show and I will do plenty more. The environment is addicting, the stage is fantastic and the networks you build are amazing. People have a vision of meat heads in a room half naked and chewing weights. Its not like that at all. Everyone is nervous, everyone is pleasant and everyone is there for the same reason, to walk on that stage and be a part of something bigger than yourself. The first show isn’t about winning (if you do that’s awesome) it’s about going outside your comfort zone and pushing past your limits.
