All right, so you’ve decided after reading the above that you’re going to compete, or you’re going to compete again. You can skip this section if you are not planning to compete. The biggest mistake I see here is that for the wrong federation, there are so many gals with the right body. Each federation has its own criteria for judging and a competitor will do poorly simply because they did not bother with research that would be best suited to them.I am going to give you a perfect example of this in the real world.Visit Rock Fitness for more details.
I recently evaluated a show whose criteria for the figure round was that with some tone, women should be more on the curvy softer side, vs. being more muscular and athletic with less body fat that other federations could allow. One of the most beautiful women I have ever seen came out during this show. With narrow hips and waist, and broader shoulders, she was very proportional, great muscle tone, lean, and athletically shaped. How has she been doing at this show? She did not even place herself in the top ten!Because why? Because she was not what we were instructed to search for and did not meet the requirements.
I informed her after the show that she looked great, but for her, this may not be the federation. I told her she had much more of a body of the NPC type, where she was rewarded with a little more muscle, athletic build, and less body fat.This is a question that I have been asked all the time, and it is not an easy question to answer. In reality, the answer is yes and no (drum roll). In order to answer that question, the individual must decide why they are competing in the first place. Do you need to compete, for instance, if your objective is to be a successful model of fitness?
