Every year, bodybuilders keep raising the bar at bodybuilding contests. Therefore if you are looking to stand on that stage someday and shine, you need to follow a proven and effective natural bodybuilding formula.
This will ensure you are completely ready with full muscles and a great physique.
Achieving an impressive physique naturally is not an easy task, but it’s not impossible either.
Dedication, hard work, patience, and discipline are important values you have to keep up to finally reach your goal.
Take a look at natural bodybuilding pros like Jeff Rodriguez, Lazar Angelov, Jim Cordova and some oldies such as Eugen Sandow and Steve Reeves. These people have built an almost unbelievable body without the use of drugs. You can too!
Tips to prepare for a successful Natural Bodybuilding Contest.
The following are three essential practices that will lead you to the bodybuilding contest stage and maybe even help you win the 1st place trophy:
1. Lack of mental discipline will not take you anywhere.
Without mental discipline, it is just impossible for you to achieve an appropriate physique. Honestly, there are lots of temptations and distractions around that can prevent you from reaching the right level of physique.
Some of these distractions include alcohol, unhealthy foods and sheer laziness. However, expressing mental strength and determination to resist temptation and distractions is the only way to make it to the contest.
Remember; if something does not challenge you, it won’t change you All your hard work will pay after the contest and then you can eat or drink out anyhow (just don’t get into trouble).
2. Get all necessary supplements and products ready.
When preparing for the contest, all you need to do is stick to the basis bodybuilding supplements and most importantly the right kind of food to help you through the process.
Without the right bodybuilding supplements and meal plans, it will be almost impossible to build an eye catching physique.
A few of the best foods or supplements to stock up on while working on your physique are:
- Carbohydrates (wheat bread, wholemeal rice, oatmeal and much more)
- Fibrous Carbohydrates (greens , lettuce, spinach and much more)
- Good Fats (Trans fats, olive oil and much more)
- Protein (red meat, egg white, tuna and much more.
I have discussed this in more detail here ==>> healthy nutrition – protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals and water.
Just make a plan and be sure you stick to the plan.
A man without a plan is more or less ready for failure without a doubt. Securing the right supplements and nutritional products will be pointless without a plan of action. You need to stay on track (possibly ahead of track) with your meals, exercise, and rest. Try to draw up a valid plan, analyze the plan and understand it.
Another part most people fail is at executing the plan. Keep in mind it is one thing to make a plan; it is another thing to put that plan into action.
An easy way to plan and execute the plan is the conventional 7-day planner. With the 7 day planner, you can sort your time properly, increase your productivity and ultimately build a better body.
It is also advised to spread your meals out to about five to seven times every day as it will increase your metabolism each time to try to burn fat.
3. Diligently and Patiently perform your HIIIT.
When preparing for the bodybuilding contest, you will need to undergo rigorous training to get you completely prepared. The training is usually called a high intensity interval training (HIIT) session.
In order to make the best out of this training, you will need, to begin with, slow interval bursts. As time goes on, you should then increase your bursts to an optimum level.
All cardio equipment can be used for the high intensity interval training. And you can as well engage yourself in running, cycling etc. (following the interval training guideline) if you prefer outdoor workouts.
Achieving a aesthetic body is possible with the right mindset, dedication, and focus. However, if you feel like you have been trying your best with no result, instead of giving up, you should seek expert advice.
