Does it have to be a Brazilian wax?

I'm 12 weeks out from my first competition and I'm doing bikini. It looks like many articles and blogs recommend getting a bikini wax done before the show, but no one specifies if they get just the bikini line done or if they get a Brazilian. Can I get away with doing just the bikini line?...

So... it occurred to me that I may have unrealistic expectations for my body. Ladies with truly muscular and toned bodies... what is it like?

Cutting/bulking confusion

Hi all, I’m attempting to go it alone and feeling a little confused after reading conflicting info. I’d been eating at a calorie deficit (like most girls do until they see the light!) and got fed up last year of never being able to improve how I looked so I started to do more weights and less...

on a diet, how much weight loss is water?

LOL. I get that this is highly subjective and there is no accurate way to determine exactly how much is water vs fat, but trying to figure out how much of my loss I should attribute to water loss only. It will help me to get a better idea how successful my diet really is and also estimate my...

Worried about my low body fat %... 7.2% and female!

I feel like I work out normally and eat normal-ish (it's not consistent, but I try to stick to eating clean the best I can) I focus on weight training mostly.

4 or 5 day split, mass AND strength, ideas?

Hello! I'm looking for a 4 or 5 day split made to build strength and actual muscle mass (which I assume will mean days with 6-8 rep ranges and then days with 8-12). Any recommendations or model plans I could follow? 18 year old woman, but I don't think that makes a difference. Thanks!
