Figure Competitor Workout for FAST Results
Figure competitions are mainstream these days. More and more women are entering figure contests and doing extremely well in them. If you are new on the fitness scene and have an interest in getting into a figure competition or simply want to look like a figure fitness model, this article will give you some easy exercise tips to get results fast.
Training for a figure competition requires workout discipline. You have to be faithful to your workout program if you want to get results. If you can follow these figure fitness tips for just 6 weeks you will see amazing and shocking results in no time.
First, an important aspect to take into consideration is NOT to over-train. Over-training can lead to muscle loss, fat gain, fatigue, depression, lack of motivation, etc. One way to avoid over-training is to develop a balanced training split so every muscle group get's worked each week, yet not over worked. Many top figure competitors like to adopt this sort of training split:
Monday - Hamstrings and Calves
Tuesday - Chest, Triceps, and Abs
Wednesday - Off
Thursday - Quad and Calves
Friday - Shoulders and Abs
Saturday - Back, Biceps, and Calves
Sunday - Off
This sort of training split allows each muscle group to be worked, without being over-trained. With this type of training split, choose 3-4 exercises for each muscle group, shooting for 3-4 sets in the 8-12 rep range.
To really amp-up this figure competitor workout you can implement one of the popular training principles such as tri-sets. A tri-set is a training principle that involves using 3 consecutive exercises for the same body part.
For Example: Tri-Set Chest:
Incline BB press - 10 reps then go immediately to
Flat DB press - 10 reps then go immediately to
Pec deck - 10 reps.
Rest 1-2 minutes and repeat 2-3 more times.
You will definitely feel the burn and pump after a good tri-set. Tri-sets can be implemented on any body part you choose.
Realize that tri-sets take a lot of strength and energy to complete all 3 exercises in a consecutive manner, so be sure to keep your weight poundage within reason. Tri-sets will take your training, muscle development, and fat loss to a new level.
To double-up your results, be sure to have a protein drink and about 5 grams of creatine after training. This will aid in muscle recovery, giving you muscle-gain and fat-loss results even FASTER!
