In this short article I'm going to give you some things you need to know about how to prep for your figure competition.
Find an Established Figure Coach - Today's Internet world is a door open for con-artists and thieves. Be aware of people coming out of no-where claiming to have won a massive amount of titles, yet their actual contest or placement can't be found online. Many first time figure competitors are being coached, then take pictures, and then launch a website claiming the won numerous trophies when they were bought.
An established figure coach has a track record, can be traced back for YEARS, and has a proven clientele list. Look for a figure coach that is honest and doesn't boast about themselves and how great they are.
Listen to One Person - One of the most important tips I can give you about how to prep for your figure competition is to listen to one person, and that's it. You see, many figure competitors and many figure coaches all have great figure prep programs that work, and work well. HOWEVER, what they don't tell you is that you can't combine them.
You see, a figure competition prep program is like a recipe, it's structured in such a way to get certain results in a certain amount of time. For example, mixing a true Cajun jambalaya Recipe with Rachel Ray's jambalaya recipe can end up in a total disaster. But, separately, each jambalaya recipe is unique and delicious. While they are each great separately, they cannot be combined and be expected to be great.
Don't Fall for the Old Bodybuilding Myths - There is a distinct line between bodybuilding and figure competition prep. If you want to know how to prep for your figure competition it is critical that you understand that some of the tactics that apply to bodybuilding do not apply to figure competition prep.
