Dangers of Competition Why Top Physique Competitors Suddenly Pass We’ve seen it time and time again. A top physique competitor or bodybuilder goes to extremes prepping for a show. The demands of contest prep are not for the weak of heart. With the growing trend of competing in bikini, physique, figure, and bodybuilding, many competitors step on stage with good intentions, but for the wrong reasons.

Think peer pressure, social media influences, or a feeling of obligation. Researchers wanted to find out what happens to them health-wise during the four month pre-competition period, along with how well they recover from the strict dieting and increased training. This is unique, because most studies involve fat people trying to lose weight and then maintain that healthier weight. Fitness competitors are different. With the increased popularity of social media, it seems like everybody now wants to do a physique show.

Should you be doing a physique competition? Are you at a level that makes it acceptable to. There are many questions to consider when thinking about participating in a physique competition. Scott Keppel, former body building competitor and Owner of Scott’s Training Systems has worked with a variety of individuals.

His skills and expertise cover a. Most important things learned from competing in physique This is the second video of the series of interviews with National Physique competitor, Fitness Model, Author and Owner of FitEnomics.com. Weeks 12-9: Cardio.

Yes, there are a few genetic freaks out there who have such naturally high metabolisms that they do not need to utilize cardio as a fat-burning tool leading up to a competition. However, for the rest of us mere mortals, cardio is a necessary evil.That said, there should never be a need for excessive amounts, which will only serve to burn of lean muscle—a. Many Men’s Physique competitors use gear. I also know many that do not.

At a local level, you can place, and possibly even win (depending on the size of the show) as a natty. I’m proof of that. However, I know a few national competitors and a couple pros, and they all use at least something during their prep.

5’7″ is a perfect height to compete. The dangers of diuretics are generally unnecessary for contest preparation. Whichever method you choose in order to get ready for your next contest, please be diligent and do your research thoroughly on what you are doing and do not take your gym buddy’s word for it.

2) Competition is a true test of your skills. You’ve attended countless classes, drilled for hours at a time, perfected your techniques, built strength and flexibility — why not put all that to the test? A fight can gauge where you are in terms of technique and athletic ability.

  • How do the judges get chosen for these events? Looking at the judge the got knocked out his loafers, it’s clear their not chosen for being retired “hall of famers”. It’s gotta just be some weird, old, pervy trust fund inheritors that have a gay fetish for guys that look like their biceps have become a large inconvenience in their ability to put food from the plate to their mouths using utensils. Anyone have actual knowledge of the judging process as I’m actually curious after watching that tickling competition documentary on HBO where a old wealthy gay guy fucks with the lives of countless dudes trying to make a buck not knowing what they were getting themselves into…

  • John Meadows is such a real dude. He’s polite, Honest, Very Knowledgable, Likes to see people succeed and Isn’t just some douche that screams curse words in the gym, and brags about his physique although his is absolutely incredible. Keep doing your thing John we appreciate you, and you as well Jeff Nippard.

  • What I’ve learned from these videos so far:
    -Snorlax, my least favorite Pokémon, is very good competitively
    -the first gen Eveelutions were basically completely usurped by the legendary dogs from gen2

  • That first synthol leak was nasty as fuck �� but I would think that it leaking puss from your delt would hurt but the way that the guy handled it was just honestly kinda funny he just walked off stage lmao��

  • This is actually the only channel i can deal with the small ad infront of it, since you’re always going straight to the topic without talking about this and that.Also, thanks for not putting in 5-second ads every 2 minutes!

  • If jeremy buendia was performing in the competition, they wouldnt be able to win against him…he was and he is the best man physique����

  • anyone who insists that Jeff is not natural has probably spent very little time training methodically, intensely and consistently. dedicate a few years to training this way and you’ll be amazed at the gains you can make without any enhancements.

  • Ive been binging on both guys videos over the last few weeks & have taken so much from the videos. Thanks so much gents
