How to Win a Fitness Competition

Winning a fitness competition requires a well balanced exercise routine before the competition to tone those muscles of yours and build you up before posing in front of the judges.

However, this is easier said than done, as to win the competition you need to be at your physical best backed by a perfect posing technique. Remember it is not just your body but your attitude as well which will impress the judges. The technique should be so perfect that when you want the judges to notice a particular muscle, it should be clearly visible to them.

Preparing for the competition depends on your current fitness level; if you are in a bad shape, it could take almost a year for you to attain a body to actually win a competition, on the other hand, if you are already in top shape then all you need is around twelve weeks of some hardcore training regime and a balanced diet.
