Just a few weeks ago I stepped on stage with the best of the best at the IFBB North American nationals and placed 3rd in my class. What an amazingly wonderful experience. I'm both humbled and inspired.

Exercise > Too much cardio?

Hello all you FABULOUS ladies!! I am considering a Figure Competition next year, for the time being, I am working on burning fat and building muscle. I am doing cardio twice a day, in the morning (empty stomach) and after work, 35min each session. Nothing extreme, but a good enough pace to break a good sweat. On weight training days, only one cardio session. Is this too much cardio to build muscle on? TIA everyone! Cathy

Hey, Everyone! I am excited to be a part of this forum and look forward to learning and making change happen. A little about me: I am 42 years old, a mom of 3 (ages 24, 16, 14), and work night shift as a registered nurse. I've wanted to do a competition for years but always found a reason to get in my own way. This year I hired a coach and started training. However, my boyfriend proposed and next thing you know I am caught up in the whirlwind of wedding planning! The wedding is in just over a week! I became extremely stressed and my coach and I decided to slow down the training until after the wedding. Well, this was my excuse to stop counting macros and get out of going to the gym. Needless to say, I've taken backward steps. Right now, I want to use the next 10 days to shed a little bit of fat I've added and get my mindset ready for what's to come.

Competition Tips > Wigs?

Its just a thought rather than extentions but what are your thoughts on wigs? If I used a wig that is similar in color to my own hair but the style is different? I want long long hair and not extentions

Competition Tips > How old is too old?

Kristin Shaffer

61 is YOUNG! :D Congratulations to you!!! What an inspiration you are! I actually stepped on stage a few years ago with a gal who was 62 at the time. When the announcer stated her age the rest of us 40-something's on stage almost fell over. We had NO idea she was 62. She looked AMAZING!!!! Proof it CAN be done with the decision to eat clean and exercise moderately. It sure sounds to me like you're on the right track but of course it's difficult to say with such limited information. If you like you're welcome to contact me personally to give me more details about your current plan. Just zip me an email - Kristin@FigureAndBikini.org With love ~Kristin <3

Competition Tips > How old is too old?

Greetings! I might be THE Senior in this group at 61! I am looking into doing a competition next year. I've got a great base from which I'm starting, having lost 42lbs, just ran my 5th Marathon. So now, I need some guidance/mentoring on all of this. I do cardio 6x@week (30min usually) and do a total body w/wgts 3x@week. Eating more protein than I usually do. My body is toned but I still see the pudginess in the middle. Am I on the right path with all of this? How long does it take before seeing more definition? Thanks again everyone!
