Orlando: seeking a bikini fitness contest prep coach

So I'm looking to compete in my second NPC bikini competition in 13 weeks. I had my first competition 2 weeks ago and pretty much coached myself. I learned a lot from it but I think some guidance would be helpful this time around. Any trainers with this type of coaching experience would be ideal. :)

Angry My body hasn't changed at all after a year of lifting!

I've been serious about lifting for 2 years now and most of my lifts fall into upper intermediate for my weight. I've really focused on legs because I am built to hold every scrap of fat in my gut. I've added 110 lb to my squat in 12 months because I was a sad, sad squatter last year who could...

Still out of proportion.

Been at it 3 years, doing my best. I don't neglect lower body training. My back work is getting stronger. I do lift heavy for what I can manage. I have a broad frame upper body. But my stomach sticks out like a sore thumb pretty badly on a daily basis, no matter what or whether I've eaten or not....

Smile OFFICIAL Cutting Support Thread (Oh noez, not the evil C word!) (no emo)

Hurrow everyone. Thought I would start one of these. We have a bulking thread, and I figure that after all the winter months, there are most likely others (like me) working on cutting down some. So I guess I thought it'd be cool if we posted our progress here. :) Pics are always a bonus as well!...

Question How do you find someone to train with while prepping for comps/shows?

I have always wondered this, I watch Tara Koenke place in the 2013 NPC deal (i think) and she said she trains with Sheridan Hause. Do you have to pay to train with IFBB pros? Or do they take you on as like a sponsorship deal??

Singlet Sizing

I know this is a body building forum but I figured some of us are into power lifting too? Anyone wear an Inzer singlet? I will probably weigh around 137 when I need it, 5'4". 32", 27", 39". I have some pretty big thighs at 24" though. Wondering if I can pull off a size small?

Silly questions about fitness

Hi, I'm 18 and I'm 5'2" and 103 lbs. I haven't gained weight in a very very long time (since I was 14 or 15, maybe), but I'm assuming I've lost muscle definition because I look very soft.
