How to Lean Up For Your Figure Competition
Just the mere thought of entering a figure competition can be quite overwhelming if you are unsure about how to diet and workout to lean up for your figure competition. There is a working system to shedding body fat and retaining, and even building, lean muscle mass. If you implement the RIGHT figure competition diet and training program, you can present a winning physique on your big day.
In this short article I'm going to reveal 3 ways you can lose ugly body fat so you will be cut and defined for your figure contest.
To lean up for your figure competition it is ESSENTIAL that you eat a high-protein diet and include a lot of non-starchy veggies. The high protein content will allow you to keep and build lean muscle mass and the non-starchy veggies will force your body to burn body fat.
Lean protein sources such as chicken and turkey are not calorically dense, and non-starchy veggies are EXTREMELY low in calories. When you group a lean protein with non-starchy veggies, you have a very low-calorie and low-fat meal. You can easily meet your caloric needs per meal by adding a quality fat such as nuts or natural peanut butter.
A very common way many figure competitors get cut is by doing cardio. If you want to lean up for your figure competition, it is HIGHLY suggested that you implement several forms of cardio such as stepper work, treadmill intervals, and even intervals on the elliptical. These are some of the best forms of cardio for overall body fat loss.
By doing interval training for cardio, you boost your metabolic rate by keeping your body off guard. Also, capitalize on this cardio fat-loss effect by doing cardio first thing in the morning, in a fasted state. This allows you to burn off your fat stores and not your last carb meal.
If you want to lean up for your figure competition be sure to weight train properly. Many figure competitors over-train, in hopes to get cut. You don't need to overdo your workout program. Train each body part once a week, doing 3 exercises per body part. Do 4 sets of each exercise in the 10-12 rep rage.
These are just a few basic ways to lose fat and build muscle for your figure contest. If you incorporate each correctly, you'll see your body transform in just weeks.
