Competitive Fitness Programme
Is being big and ripped enough? …
Although the above is needed, a winning physique needs to be symmetrical and posses good posture and balance between lower and upper extremities and between lower and upper body not to mention definition and remain HEALTHY !!
More often that not, fitness and body builders athletes have a great run and look great at the contest only to crash few days later and balloon to a nearly obese condition over the next 2 months, this is due to the hormonal abuse, the extreme dieting and cardio regime to get in shape or a combination of all that.
The common problem is lack of planning and academical knowledge regarding training and nutritional methodology.
My personal opinion is that such athlete should stay in shape all year round and should have to lose no more that 5 or 6 per cent fat in no more that 8 weeks prior to the contest
