  • Are You Ready For A Bodybuilding Competition?


    You've put the work in at the gym to build real muscle and have fine-tuned your diet to get lean. While you may be seeing great improvements when you look in the mirror, do you think you might be ready to venture into the world of competitive bodybuilding? Here are some of the signs that you may be ready to compete in your first bodybuilding competition.

    Bodybuilding competitions don't have set seasons like other sports. So, you should be able to find a competition near you at any time during the year if you put in the effort to find them. This can make your preparation period as long as needed to ensure you have the physique you want. However, there are a few common characteristics that judges will look for when determining the winner.

    • Muscle Definition - Accentuating your muscle definition with tanning is critical for effectively showing off your physique. This will often emphasize the condition, size and symmetry of your muscles and help you enhance your physique throughout the competition.
    • Posedown - Mastering a wide variety of bodybuilding poses is critical for success in the bodybuilding competition world. This allows you to isolate and accentuate muscles while displaying your physique on stage.
    • Vascularity - Displaying a great amount of vascularity is important for bodybuilding competitions because it also enhances the look of your muscles. If you have veins that pop out of your muscles like snakes, then you may be ready to start competing.


    Even if you aren't quite where you want to be, there are a variety of bodybuilding classes that you may find your perfect fit in. You don't have to be as big as Ronnie Coleman or Jay Cutler to get into the sport. Find the class that works for you and get started!

      Nice article...here is my quandry as I did a vlog about this.....you need to learn how to take criticism and not surround yourself with "Yes" people...when I competed, I wanted the honest and brutal truth....you need to work on this, you are soft, you need 6 more weeks etc.

      People get their heads filled with too much Yes you look great and when they dont make the top 5 or top 10, it is everyone else's fault

      That is a great point! Being able to take the criticism is critical for success in the sport or you will never be able to grow and find ways to improve.

      I have competed and understand timing, spilling over, water retention etc but I have seen pictures, as I am sure you have where people are weeks if not months away.

      You have people saying "kudos to him/her for having the guts to get onstage etc etc but this is a sport/competition.......would Michael Phelps swim in a competition if he was at 50%? Would Nolan Ryan pitch if he was at 50%?? Prob not...
