Bodybuilding Competitions

 


As you get more familiar with bodybuilding and as you start building those muscles, you may want to consider entering into bodybuilding competitions.  Many local gyms hold bodybuilding competitions as well as national competitions that are held on an annual basis.

Before you actually enter bodybuilding competitions, it benefits you to know what they are all about in the first place.  Attend a few competitions before entering and pay close attention to the techniques the exhibitors use and ask questions about what the judges are looking for.

 

 

Do not enter a bodybuilding competition just because you’ve lost a bunch of weight.  These competitions are about great physiques with toned muscles – not about people who’ve lost body fat.  Your muscles must be well-defined and toned ready for display.  Remember on another page of this website when we talked about the “Grecian Ideal”?  That’s what Bodybuilding competitions are really about.


Be realistic about your chances the first time out.  While it is possible to realize a “Cinderella” story finish, it’s not really probable when you consider that some of the other entrants are very experienced.  Tell yourself that you’ll be happy with not being cut from the lineup or taking fifth place, for example, which is a realistic goal for many beginners.


Once you’ve decided on a competition, you need to start planning well ahead of time to become fully prepared for competition day.  You need to concentrate on any problem areas you have and work them hard.  Keep up with your regular routine, so the muscles that are already toned don’t lose their definition.

 


Think about what you will wearing during the competition and what songs you will want played while you are posing.  You will also want to start thinking about your posing routine.

 


We’ll interject a quick note about suits here since it’s not really that complicated choosing what you’re going to wear.  You have worked very hard on your body, and in a competition, you will want to show off as much of it as possible.  Pick a suit in a color that is complementary and one that is as skimpy as you are comfortable with.  Just don’t over-do it – it’s not about who shows the most skin but who shows the best muscles.


With music, you will want to choose songs that will activate and excite the crowd.  Judges will respond better to you if you have a lot of clapping and cheering going on for you. 

 

Your posing style will be dictated by the music, either elegant or aggressive depending on your selection. Your style of music is important. Your mood, the mood of the audience and the judges will be set moment by moment, heavily balance by the competitor's choices of music.
