If you only had 30 min per day, 3 days per week to work out, what would you focus on? Weights, cardio, yoga, some combination?

Asked by noabswhatsoever over 12 years ago

I would base that decision on your fitness goals. But generally I would use a combination. Most people who want to lose weight think they only have to do cardio. That would be wrong. Weight training will add lean muscle mass which in turn, will help you burn more fat. If you only had thirty minutes to weight train I would suggest a circuit where you hit every muscle once. Your best bet alternating one day of weights, then one day of cardio, then weights, then cardio, etc. I really don't have any experience in yoga, but would like to try it out one day.

What kind of body primping is required for bodybuilding competitions?

Asked by KellzBellz over 12 years ago

As far as primping goes, it’s necessary to look good on stage. You are being judged for months of work, in a matter of minutes. The obvious primp that needs to be done is complete shaving of the entire body. Shaving should be started weeks before as to make sure you do not get razor burn or ingrown hairs. Nair and other hair removers work on sensitive areas of the body. The day before or morning of the competition it is necessary to spray tan. Specific products are made for spray tan for competitors that work better than everyday spray tans you would find at your local salon. For my competition, I found a woman that had extensive experience that came to the house and spayed the tan on in my kitchen. A good tan could make the difference between placing and not placing. Right before you go on stage, you do what they call "pump up." There are weights provided to get a last minute pump for your muscles to fill up with blood and look their best.

How has becoming a bodybuilder affected your self-image and relationships?

Asked by DrDrea over 12 years ago

It has completely affected my self-image both positively and negatively. The better you look and more compliments you get, the better you feel. However, I am constantly feeling that I can look better or do better. If you place 3rd in a competition, then I wanna work even harder to get to 2nd place next time, if not 1st. I am very critical of myself - and it can sometimes be obsessive.

Do you have a favorite pro bodybuilder?

Asked by S_W over 12 years ago

I don't have one specific but you have to give credit to Arnold for all his accomplishments. I'm also a fan of Victor Martinez despite his recent legal troubles.

Do you get annoyed when people approach you in gyms and ask for training tips?

Asked by crunch over 12 years ago

Usually no. I especially don't mind when a younger person has questions or needs advice. All too often you see people at gyms lifting incorrectly or just look lost. When I first started lifting, I had older guys at my gym helping me out and giving me advice and it was much appreciated. I have no problem returning the favor. However, if someone just wants to come up and talk to me about nonsense, then I have no patience for that. All too often people use the gym as social hour instead of its intended purpose, and no headphones or iPod can keep them away.

How prevalent is steroid use in pro bodybuilding?

Asked by Dominick over 12 years ago

In natural competitions the competitors are drug tested. The percentage probably depends on the level of the show. National shows and larger competitions have more competitors and higher stakes. Some competitors have sponsors and endorsement deals so it is imperative for them to do well and steroids might give them that extra edge.

Which is your favorite muscle/workout magazine? There are so many that advertise things like, "Get a six-pack in two weeks!", but most are b.s -- curious to know if there are any with truly valuable tips.

Asked by Salvatore over 12 years ago

I actually don't even read them. For years I would read Muscle and Fitness or sometimes Flex magazine. If anything, the pictures were inspiring but often they gave me a false sense of what I could accomplish. Most of the models are at their peak and have exceptional 'genetics'. I would try to pick up new ideas for workouts and just realized it was all turning into the same thing. Everyone is trying to reinvent the wheel and come up with the next best idea. Not knowing what your level of experience in the gym is, but for novices they can be helpful to put a workout program together or give you the discipline to follow a program already written out for you by the magazine. As for valuable tips? I think everyone is different and what might work for someone, does not work everyone else. The magazines do hold some good information, but it can be confusing to sort out what actually works for you. The gimmicks for getting six packs, adding inches to your biceps, and increasing your bench press by 100 lbs all in one week are on the cover to sell magazines. But its not to say that the issue might not contain a good ab workout that you might never have seen before. You might not get the six pack in a week, but it's a good change to your routine ab workout.

Do most competitive bodybuilders do it just to look good, or are there other, less obvious motivations?

Asked by RightSaidJedd over 12 years ago

Some might do it for aesthetic reasons, while others do it for the sport. People asked me why I was doing this and my response was, "Do you ask a marathon runner why he trains for marathons?"

What prompted you to begin competitive body-building in the first place? Were you always big on fitness?

Asked by Jacinda81 over 12 years ago

I began lifting in college as a hobby to stay fit. I was overweight as an adolescent and decided to change my habits so I was not an overweight unhealthy adult.

Do you utilize supplements (protein shakes, creatine, etc), and if so, what kinds?

Asked by DrewBreezy over 12 years ago

Yes, it’s important to utilize supplements to gain maximum results. Protein shakes are commonly used, as well as different amino acids (such as Branch Chain Amino Acids BCAA's), fish oils, glutamine and fat burners.

How much does your body weight fluctuate between competition periods and non-competition periods?

Asked by Sollymon over 12 years ago

My bodyweight fluctuated over 50 lbs between off-season and actual competition day.

Before a competition, are there certain last-minute exercises, foods, or other fat-burning methods that are "musts?"

Asked by J_Cage over 12 years ago

Days before the competition is usually when you’re feeling your worst physically. The joke is that the worse you feel, the better you look. The day before the competition you do not work out. Your diet is strict to deplete your body of water. It is necessary to dehydrate your muscles to create the striations and definition for your muscles. Usually you carbohydrate-load this day so your muscles fill out. However, you do not eat rice because it is made with water or drink any liquids. Some competitors will go to steam rooms or saunas to sweat out as much water as possible. Others might use diuretics.

What motivates women to become bodybuilders? Seems like the least feminine thing on earth.

Asked by sorrycharlie over 12 years ago

Everyone has their own motivation to compete in the sport. I would imagine it is the same reasons a male would. Simply because a woman bodybuilds doesn't necessarily de-feminize them. There are, however, other categories that females can participate besides bodybuilding at most shows that might be considered more 'lady like'. These are the figure, as well as, bikini competitions. The figure competitions are classed by height, not by weight.

What kind of diet is required for anyone looking to compete in bodybuilding competitions?

Asked by DrewBreezy over 12 years ago

The diets are very strict. Balancing carbs, fats and proteins spaced out over 6 meals a day, usually eating every 2-3 hours. I hired a trainer who had experience in contest prep diets. He wrote my diets for me, and changed it according to how I looked on a week-by-week basis.

What's your workout regimen when competing?

Asked by MastaDon over 12 years ago

Pre-contest workouts consist of two gym sessions a day. The first is a cardio session lasting 30 mins to an hour, depending on how close to competition day it is. This is done first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to burn the most fat. The second afternoon workout consists of the actual weightlifting. The cardio sessions were 7 days a week while the lifting sessions consisted of 5-6 days a week. During the "off-season" is the time where you want to grow and put on quality lean muscle mass. It's not as important to keep up on the cardio. I'll do one gym session 5x a week. Making sure to allow for rest periods for your muscles to grow.

Do you frequently get stopped by strangers to ask questions or offer compliments regarding your physique?

Asked by Matti143 over 12 years ago

Surprisingly, yes. They'll make comments such as, "Do you workout?", or "I wanna look like you." It's bizarre when I'm out in a club or a bar I've had people actually come up to me and grope my chest while making comments on the size of it.

Does bodybuilding negatively affect your health in any way?

Asked by GoAggies over 12 years ago

Not being a doctor, I can't give you a definite medical answer to that. But from personal experience, I would say yes. Your exercise regimen does take a toll on your body and joints, as well as just draining you physically. Working out without giving your body time to rest and stop for injuries takes a toll. Some days you are running on no carbs and have no energy. When you put your body through such strain and depletion of carbs, you react emotionally as well, mostly with irritability. The actual 'day before' and 'day of' the competition prep consists of completely dehydrating your body so your muscles will show the best definition or "striations". To show the extent of level you need to cut out liquids, you cannot even eat rice because it is made with water. Some bodybuilders will sit in saunas to sweat out every ounce of retained water.

Asked by 14girlEj almost 9 years ago

 

Hello,

I've developed a pretty solid core and six pack over the year by doing a variety of intense core workouts, at least 30 minutes of cardio every day, and eating a very Lea and clean diet. Yet I still don't have that defining line through the midsection of my core. I have it at the very top of my abs, but it becomes less pronounced as it continues down. It's the last section that I'm trying to develop. Are there any key workouts I can do to establish this line?

Thanks,

Ryder

Asked by ethan over 8 years ago

 

I'm 14. I am 5 foot 3 inches, and 95 pounds. Yesterday I picked up some pre-workout. C4 to be specific. I took it last night before my workout and it worked perfectly. I took the recommended serving, one spoon. But when I got home, I read the label that said not for use under 18. So I read some reviews and people saying not to take it and take coffee instead. I drank coffee before workouts before and it didn't work. I only use C4 on days when I feel lazy. So max twice a week to no times a week. I know not to do cardio and not to take it every day and to cycle off it for a few weeks and stuff. I just want to know the side effects because even my protein shake has not for use under 18. I control my diet of protein though. I'm aware of the kidney problems. I'm pretty scrawny but have been building muscle for a little under a year. So what side effects should I expect? Please don't say "you shouldn't take it" in a mean way. I'm open to your opinion but please include all the risks and some background info because I don't think it can harm me. As far as addiction, I don't have a caffeine addiction or anything. Again I only use it on lazy days.

Hello There.
Excuse me, I have a question about gym training, why we always do even rips in each set? For example 12-10-8-6 or 10-10-10
10-8-6-4 ??!
Is there any difference if we do odd rips?!
Thanks so much.
Warm regards.

I have a huge crease and heaviness even though my butt is not large and when I work hard on my glutes I tend to see it increase in size a bit larger than theirs, though always still a large crease and heaviness, no lift!
