Pear Shaped? No Problem

I used to think my being naturally pear shaped would permanently prevent me from obtaining that bikini body I desired so deeply. I lived years thinking it simply was out of my grasp due to my genetics.

Competition Tips > NPC Bikini Rules- Theory vs. Reality

Crystal Jordan

Do they check your suit at the competitors meeting or competition morning? I assume they just have you pull it out, or do they want to see it on you? On the NPC site they don't have anything stated about 50% coverage (not that I saw anyhow) only that suits cannot be thongs and should be in good taste. http://npcnewsonline.com/npc-bikini-division-rules/ After reading this thread I'm kind of terrified that my suit will be turned away. I too purchased from suitsyouswimwear.com. I bought the scrunch butterfly http://www.suitsyouswimwear.com/proddetail.php?prod=crystal-butterfly-bikini-103. However, I have a full tushie (one I've worked hard to come by:) ) but I feel it kind of swallows up my suit. Ah, sigh...feeling stressed. Any thoughts?

Competition Tips > 6 weeks out & Nervous

And by the way (and I think importantly), I'm 47 and my body doesn't seem to be as quick to change as it was in my 20's or 30s.

Competition Tips > 6 weeks out & Nervous

Hi there! I'm new to the forum --- happy to find a group of like minded folks! I'm hoping to compete in my first figure competition in 6 weeks. I have been prepping for 12 weeks already and have experienced a lot of positive change. I think everything is coming together nicely and I feel like I can be ready EXCEPT I still have a fair bit of cellulite on the backs of my legs. I'm not kind enough to myself to just say "oh well, you've worked hard and gotten this far, don't worry about it...just go and have fun" - I wish I had that mentality! I want to feel proud of not just my hard work and accomplishments so far but also of my body when I go on stage. My body fat percentage currently is at 12%. My question is for those of you who have been here or seen it happen---- is it possible to eliminate the cellulite in 6 weeks? I don't want to purchase my posing suit or pay to enter the contest if what I really should do is look for another contest perhaps a few months from now to give myself more time. I'm willing to wait since I want my first experience to be a positive one! Thanks in advance.

Congrats on your first show! That's awesome!!! During the prejudging we don't find out where we placed. The top 5 are announced only during the night show. Therefore, all competitors step on stage for both the prejudging and the night show. I hope that helps and have a blast!!! With love, Kristin

I have my first show in 2 weeks with one question remaining: It's my understanding that the judges pick their top 5 for each class during the Prejudging round and call those women out in the first call-outs. And it is only those 5 that show during the night show. Right? If that's the case, and I'm not called out during the first call-outs in the prejudging round is it worth coming to the night show? Thanks for your responses!!

I talked to an NPC judge at length about the topic; Girls doing over the top poses with bikini under sized. He actually said that many gals have one suit for check in but have the other skimpier one to wear on stage. And, they, the judges notice and frown upon it. He said, the problem is that many of these girls have high end coaches that tell them to do this. And since they have high end coaches / coaches, they tend to have the better physiques. Therefore they place high. It is not the crazy suits or posing that got them the top spot, it was their physique and stage presence. That is from a top NPC judge in Florida. So, go by the rules and rock the stage with an amazing physique and you will place above them because you followed the rules! :)

Diet > 6 weeks out and questioning if I am too lean already! HELP!

HI! Currently I am 6 weeks out from my first ever bikini competition. It took my over a year to finally muster up the courage to compete in one of these so I'm always going back and forth with myself. With my background in resistance training and nutrition I decided to do everything on my own. I am 5'9" and am about 140lbs and have been an athlete my entire life. My macros and calories are higher than most of the people I talk to but my metabolism is pretty darn high that I am afraid I am getting too lean too quick... any suggestions? I thought about increasing my caloric intake to slow down the process but I don't want to put myself back if this is a normal cut. My macros currently look like this: protein 140g, carbs 170g, and fats 50g. The past 2 weeks I have been eating 1700cals a day but have increased it to 1800 the past 2 days so my macros would be increased a bit.

It's a different one, I'll admit that. But everyone IS different and it sounds like you've faced this before. With love, Kristin

Diet > Struggling To Eat!!

Ok thank you! Do you think I should be concerned that I'm having this weird aversion to meat? I think maybe its because I eat 5 meals a day and 3 consist of meat and I'm just over it ha ha But its way too soon to be over my diet!
