Many people dream of their figure competition and hoisting that trophy. They are willing to do a lot of things to reach that pinnacle via hiring a top women’s figure competition coach.
There are, however, a lot of myths associated with such figure prep coaches – and they have the potential to cost you a lot of money and stress in the long run if you do not pick the right figure competition prep coach.
So without further ado, here are the five most common myths about hiring a figure competition coach for your contest prep, plus the truth behind the myth:
“I will be in shape for my first figure contest in a couple weeks” Figure competition shape takes time, and nothing you do will shorten it down to a couple weeks.
In fact, you will need to doggedly stick to your figure competition prep coach’s plan for at least a month before you can even begin to notice any change in your body’s physique. Anything faster than this is impossible, and pushing yourself to develop muscles by pumping iron three times for every day of the week and losing 3 pounds of fat every day is extremely dangerous for your health and any decent prep coach of figure competitions knows this very well.
“I need specialized supplements to get in figure contest shape” Supplement companies will deny it, online supplement stores will deny it, but the truth of the matter is that you can get perfect figure competition contest shape using only your body, food, cardio and a great training program from a top figure coach.
Protein Powders, BCAA’s, Fat Burners, Nitric Oxide Boosters and any other supplement that is “mandatory” by the supplement company’s view are not necessary to get into figure contest shape. An experienced specialized figure competition coach will help you focus on your goals of winning that figure competition and keep your on track with that figure coach’s program alone. Supplements do help but are in no way a substitute for a great figure prep coach.
“I have to hours and hours of cardio to get that figure competition body” A common mistake figure coaches make when designing a plan for a women’s figure contest is to put too much focus on hours of cardio – not the correct diet.
Even a single 30 min session of intense cardio post workout is more effective than ten grueling 60 mins sessions of cardio a week. The mark of a good figure competition coach is the fact that she listens to how your body feels and reacts when your diet and training are pushed to their limits. Cardio can be determined and added after those two are in place. Whenever you choose your figure competition coach you need to make sure she knows what she is doing and that figure coach will listen to you and your body. You should be able to effectively sculpt your abs to perfection without hours and hours of cardio per week. This is why it is extremely important to choose your Figure coach wisely.
“I only need to focus on exercise to get into figure competition shape” Women’s figure competition contest prep is as much about diet as it is training correctly, which is why you need to watch out for uneducated figure prep coaches when hiring one for a contest.
This is especially true for those “guru” coaches that have a reputation in the industry for giving out cookie cutter diets, as even a slightly incorrect diet that never gets changed and adapted to your emotional needs as a women will keep those abs covered in fat and prevent a lean sculpted physique from ever being shown on stage at your figure competition contest. Mix in the physical demands of being women, living complications with your family, and stresses of every day life and you will only put your own body in greater peril if you do not hire the perfect figure competition prep coach.
“I don’t need to worry about how easily I can get in touch with my figure coach” Oh, you better be worried – how are you going to know what to change modify and adapt in your diet, cardio and training routine if you can’t ever get a hold of your figure competition coach? If they are nowhere to be found how will you ever know how to come into your show correctly as the last week of figure contest prep is the most important. This is especially true for top figure contest competitors doing a national level show with the ultimate goal of winning a procard.
This figure competition journey is not a one-time thing that ends once you spend a week on your diet in hopes of achieving your desired physique. You need to keep going at it for weeks and years on end if you ever hope to make those figure competition magazine covers and be rich and famous.
Choose a women’s figure competition prep diet and training coach wisely as she will need to learn the ins and outs of your body and emotional needs just as well if not better than you. That figure competition coach will be there for you for years to come on your journey to stardom. If you pick the wrong one you will lose money, blood sweat and tears and that hard effort can go to waste if you don’t pick the right figure coach.
Make sure to bust these five myths about figure competition contest prep coaches, and you will be well on your way to being rich and famous, on the cover of your favorite magazine, all the while your and your figure coach sculpt the winning physique.
