Are you ready to start a competition prep for bodybuilding? It seems like a strange question, but hear me out. Some people jump into deciding to compete without first knowing if their body is in a good place composition wise, metabolically, and hormonally.
Contest prep is different from a regular fat loss phase. Many people invest a ton of money and get pigeonholed into an unrealistic timeline. In today’s episode, learn if you are ready to consider competing. Your host William Grazione along with Coach Gillis Pellegrin and Coach Zach Richie, go over realistic timelines for fat loss and where you need to be nutritionally first with your insulin sensitivity before committing to compete. The three also discuss the importance of where you should be with your lean mass development first and how long you have been training in a muscle-building phase.
You’ll also need to keep in mind how your digestive system responds before you take on a challenge like a bodybuilding competition. Other overlooked things to consider are your mindset and lifestyle and your reasons for competing. If you plan on participating in more than one competition, you also need to keep tabs on your weight after you step off the stage. We’ll teach you why this is essential information to know right now.
