Contest Food Prep
Knowing how many “weeks out” you are from a show is, in my opinion, the most important part of competing. The term “weeks out” refers to the approximate number of weeks left before you step on-stage. The term “days out” can also be used when there’s less than 14 days remaining. On social media, the hashtags #2weeksout for example, means you will be stepping on stage in about 2 weeks. #14daysout can also be used.
Competing has many variables that need to be considered in order to be successful. Those include but are not limited to; proportions, symmetry, posing, presentation, conditioning, and endurance.The most important piece of advice I could ever give you is to be honest with yourself. Rushing into a competition can be disastrous to your image, self-esteem, and overall health.
Do the things I recommend here and do not let anyone, especially an inexperienced coach or a guru, “rush” you into getting on-stage. Rushing the process produces more negative consequences then positives outcomes. The last thing you want is, for what’s supposed to be an inspirational transformation journey, to become a stressful and counterproductive nightmare. I discuss this in great detail on Later in the coming weeks.
