Competition Tips > Heel height

Keep practicing in both, enough practice and the 5" will feel comfortable. If not go with 4", its not worth messing up your posing for the effect of the 5" heels have on your legs.

Diet > 15 Weeks out to first Figure

Jenna Swift

Also, if anyone could help me out with a couple questions... 1. Is Almond milk ok on prep for protein shakes or should I just use water? 2. Do I need to make fresh chicken breast for all meals or can I use the frozen pre-cooked boneless/skinless packages? 3. Do I need to use the long grain brown rice in a bag or can I use the ready to serve brown rice containers? I don't want to take any shortcuts. I want to do everything correct. I am a full time employee/single mother or two so any time I can save helps! Thanks

Diet > 15 Weeks out to first Figure

Jenna Swift

Hi! I'm new to the competition world! I want to compete in a local NCP Figure show in 15 weeks. I am currently 143lbs and only 5'2" I am around 23% BF. Is this goal achievable for me? I want to lose around 20lbs and end up about 15%BF.

Upcoming Competitions > 18 weeks out and need advice

I'm 18 weeks out for my first bikini competition. I'm 5'2, 133lb (2lb of that is silicone implant - breast) and I've been strength training for four years. I have substantial muscle mass but have put on bodyfat in the last year -- too much. I have 18 weeks until the show that my goal is to compete in. My calorie deficit (as of now) is about 500 - 1000calories per day. I have a structured calorie and macro plan that will decrease every week or so by 50cal. I am also going to do a weekly high carb refeed (not a cheat day -- a structured refeed) that will surround a followup workout for my weakest area - hamstrings and glutes. In your opinion -- do you think I have a shot at making it in 18 weeks? My goal is to lose about 20lb. Thanks!

Hi, I purchased the Bikini Competition Prep but can't find the Meal Planning Tool? I was already a member before I purchased the program. Am I supposed to get a different PW?

Diet > Monitoring the effects of different carbohydrates

Pierce Drury

Oops, I'm sorry! I didn't mean to post twice. But anyway... Hi! I'm new here. I'm in the beginning of my prep for a show at the end of the summer. I have a new coach and she gave me some homework. Namely, she would like for me to eat specific carbohydrates for a few days (like only oats as a carb source for 4 days, then brown rice for 4 days, then white rice, then potatoes, etc.) and monitor their effects on my body. My question: Have you done anything like this before? If so, what did you notice? I plan on monitoring general energy levels, vascularity, regularity, feeling of hunger/fullness, bloating... Is there anything else that you've noticed when you switch up your carbohydrates? Thank you in advance!
