Should I compete Bikini or Figure?

I am 27 weeks out. I've never competed before, but I am torn between competing Bikini vs Figure. I always assumed I would compete bikini, but a trainer who used to train women for figure mentioned to me yesterday that he had been assuming I was competing figure, and asked why I chose bikini, and I...

Over 30% BF & Over 45 Want to Compete

How the PHUCK did Felipe Franco come last in the AC Men's Physique show?

My mind is blown at the fact this Brazilian guy keeps doing terribly in IFBB shows despite winning virtually ever show he did in Brazil and also having one of the best physiques on stage at the 2014 Mr Olympia and 2015 Arnold Classic. He literally came LAST at the 2015 Arnold Classic and he...

So, I'm 8 weeks out from going on stage (bikini). I'm 5'9", 142lbs and my body fat % is either a 15 or 19 (I did it by myself so it was a little hard and did the 3 point and 7 point). I've been lifting for a few months, but really just cleaned up my diet 3 weeks ago. I've seen no change in my...

Competing in bikini first time without a coach -- am I crazy?

I have started prepping for an NPC comp in my area for this June that I have gotten very excited and passionate about.

Or is that a viable effect only if you're already huge ? Like does it work for guys who aren't competition worthy?
