Skin tightening???

I've just started taking photos in hopes of finding my way into a fitness magazine or sponsored. Anyhow, I've read that potassium pills, in conjunction with proper diet and cardio, will tighten the skin around the muscles to help with the overall 3D look when in front of the camera. I did this for...

Smile 3 weeks out: dizziness and feeling tired overall.

Hey! I'm prepping for my first competition that's coming up in a little less than 3 weeks. So far I've been handling it pretty well, lots of cravings but only went off my diet once or twice (no binge or anything), didn't skip a workout, etc. I lift 4x a week for 60-75 minutes max and then do 30...

First show prep, no coach, am I on the right track?

I’m currently about 7 1/2 weeks (54 days) out from my first show. I’ve been in prep for just over 6 weeks now and I’ve definitely made a lot of progress I just don’t know if I’m making it fast enough? I’m not sure what I should look like at this stage in the game or how I should change my...

Quitting bodybuilding after your first competition?

Hey guys, So I’m currently 3 weeks out and at this point I’m limping to the finish line. I’m 18 and this is my first show for men’s physique. The dieting and the cost of everything, including food, gas, supplements, and the “extra” supplements are taking a toll on me. Also I’ve pretty much shut...

Considering competing in the future... not sure if I can even do it

For the past year or two I've been following a lot of bikini and figure girls on IG. Not only have I admired their determination and dedication, but they look beautiful and confident in their own skin. It's something I've thought about often lately but never quite sure if I should even try. I...

Question Curious about my first compition

So I'm overweight as of right now, I'm 32 almost 33 male 5'8" and 237.8 lbs. I've lost about 30ish lbs in the last 4 months. I think this is good progress but it's not a set goal, it's not me getting it in to my full potential. So today I met with a bodybuilding coach, who thought it might be a...

What about sugar free drinks during competition prep?

So, I was wondering what other people think about it. Personally I just drink (pepsi max) when I feel need for it plus it helps me with hunger. Currently I am 3 weeks out and my weight is 83.5 kg and my height is 174,5 cm and have 13,2 mm (4point fat measurement: biceps, triceps, back, abs) ...

How many weeks out does this look ?

Hi team, I am wanting to compete in BBing again. Took 5 years off to focus on powerlifting and strongman. Judging by these pics, would 12 weeks out be too little of time ? I have my doubts.. Might need more than 12 weeks.. I want to have shredded glutes, like fully showing and I am prepared...

Question Teenage competitions

I am in no rush to start competing since I know I am not near the necessary requirement, but in a few years I think I might be able too. How do you know if you are ready to start competing and what stats are good for teenage bodybuilders?

Competing in Both Classic Physique and Men's Open

If I do a crossover in the same show for both of these categories, will using the same posing routine for both be frowned upon and affect my score? Or would that be okay to do?
