You’ve done some research, maybe you’ve been working out for awhile and are looking to push yourself physically and mentally. Making the commitment to compete in a bikini competition can be difficult. But, now what do you do?
Are You Ready to Prep for Your First Competition?
We’ve put together a list of the basic questions you’ll need to answer and some things to consider as you work toward your dream of stepping onstage.
Where will you get your food?
-You can prep it yourself or order from a company familiar with bodybuilder’s unique dietary needs.
Who’s planning your meals?
-You can DIY it, or speak to a dietician or coach.
What’s your diet method?
-IIFYM (stands for if it fits your macros) or flexible dieting.
Who’s designing your work outs?
-Again, DIY is an option, but judges are looking for tight, lean, muscular and symmetrical women.
What areas of your body need to grow (and shrink)?
-Be honest with yourself!
How much money are you willing to spend?
-Competing can be expensive, but you don't have to break the bank to step on stage.
-There are a ton of federations, NPC, NANBF, OCB, WBFF just to name a few. Do some research and find which federation is going to fit your body and your goals the best.
