I decided a couple of weekends ago to compete again…
but not in bodybuilding… in Figure and/or Ms. Physique. I started Feb. 1st taking my “before” photos and started my diet on Monday. I started off at 101.4 and will not tell you my bodyfat just yet… lol.
I will be posting tips here on my blog and making videos for my youtube channel about my progress and how I am doing things to get ready for my first Figure show… which will be in June.
Doing my cardio one day… It occured to me that there might be some of you that would want to do this journey along with me… so I thought a Better Bodies 16 week Body Transformation Challenge would be fun for you all to do along with me. 🙂
Who can participate in this challenge?
Anyone! It starts the weekend of Feb. 20th, or at least by Monday… February 22nd. You’ll have to take your “before” photos in the next couple of days and send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Trust me… no one will see your photos but me. They will be totally safe in my hands.)
Along with your photos please send your: Name, gender, height, weight, age, and waist measurement.
What do you need to start?
You’ll need to get a newspaper and hold it for your front pose… very important. You’ll need to take a front relaxed pose, a back relaxed pose, and a side relaxed pose. If you wish to add any other photos like… front double bicep, side chest, abs, or anything else… you are more than welcome.
Below are some examples of extra poses. (These photos are not required.)
From top to bottom… side chest pose, front double bicep pose, side tricep pose.
Below is a video with an example of the relaxed front, side, and back before photos… (these photos are the ones that are required)
What do you need to wear?
Take your photos in a bathing suit or posing suit/trunks. If you don’t have that… then shorts are ok and a sports bra. Make sure your shorts aren’t too long… I’d like to be able to see your legs. You have to show your mid section too, so no tank tops. And whoever wins… I would like to post the winner’s pics on my youtube channel, blog, and sites, if that’s ok.
We will be taking photos each month…
1st Photos… weekend of February 20th
2nd Photos… weekend of March 20th
3rd Photos… weekend of April 17th
4th Photos… weekend of May 15th
Last and Final Photos… June 12th
Does it cost anything to enter????
No. I will be posting some helpful videos and tips on my youtube channel, blog, and Facebook. This challenge does not cost anything to enter… all that I ask is when I post any videos on YouTube… that you go to my youtube channel itself at www.youtube.com/cliftafit and rate and comment on my videos. You will need to have a channel of your own to rate and comment. (This is not required to participate… I’m just asking as a favor.)
Again My channel is at www.youtube.com/cliftafit .
That’s about all I can think of for now. This should be enough to get you started and if I think of anything else I’ll add to this… or if you have any questions… please feel free to ask.
