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!!

Competition Tips > NPC Bikini Rules- Theory vs. Reality

Vickie Harvey

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.

Diet > Struggling To Eat!!

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!

Then if I were you I would just stick with the proteins you can stomach (like egg whites). That won't hurt you at all. :) With love, Kristin

Diet > Struggling To Eat!!

Yes. Yesterday I had egg whites at breakfast with a protein shake, lunch was spinach salad with egg whites (I couldn't eat the chicken), and dinner was egg whites and a protein shake. I'm having the same issue today too and I'm starting to just feel worn out.
