Picking the right plan

If your aim is to shed weight, try cardio programs. And if you just want to work for aesthetics, body building training program will work.


Remember that the human body can perform a lot of things simultaneously.

  • Bodybuilding and adding mass

If you want to be huge, let the ratio of calories taken to calories burnt stay high. Taking more calories than you burn ensures that you do not lose but rather add muscle mass.

  • Losing weight

This requires a caloric deficit i.e. burn more calories than you take.

  • Endurance training

Better endurance requires that you maintain leaner muscles. The body uses the extra calories to empower your endurance and not to drive mass addition.  Do a lot of sprinting and running for this objective.

There are a myriad ways to achieve the above objective, and different individuals have different perspectives on the meaning of these accomplishments. For instance, the ideal ‘sexy feeling when naked’ is definitely different for a body builder and a marathon athlete.

Beginner Tips for Fitness Model Competition

By participating in a fitness challenge that lasts for 12 weeks, many people are able to see an incredible transformation in their physique. If you are thinking on joining a fitness model competition, there are some important tips that you will need to know.

Ensure that you are in the right competition

Before you can join that long and rigorous process, you will need to figure out whether this is the right place for you physically and emotionally. The diets for competition will range for a period of 4 weeks. It is also not enough to lose a lot of fat within a period of 20 weeks and therefore you will need to ensure that you do not lose the muscle tissues too.

You will get a rigid lifestyle

Before you join a bikini competition, you will need to ensure that you are eating in the right way for a period of around one year. You may need to weigh and even measure all your food, prepped and even your packed lunches. You will also need to cut on the indulgences that make healthy eating to fit with your robust social life.

Most of the competitors tend to feel isolated from non-athlete friends after they begin to avoid bars and restaurants. It can get lonely preparing for a fitness model competition depending on the kinds of friends you keep. The hours that you used to spend consuming a cup of coffee after work will be replaced by hours in the gym. However, not only are the results great, but your handwork will also pay.


The competition is not cheap

You may need to pay for an amount of over $200 per month for a coach. One single session  with the personal trainer may range from between $40 and $100. Buying a semi-customed suit can set you back by $150 and bikinis can cost thousands of dollars. However, you can reduce these costs by renting the suits or buying old ones from previous competitors.
