The way your body looks changes from day to day, and even from hour to hour, and on a bigger scale from month to month and year to year. Today we’re going to focus on what it takes to get into condition for a winning look. And what better way to do this than with Allen Elliot…he know what it takes to ‘dial it in’ and he’ll be sharing some the techniques he used to get into the condition you see here.
There are many factors that go into the look of your body including:
Total bodyfat – Not much to explain here. If you’re carrying too much fat none of your muscle will show through
Body Water – From fully hydrated after a meal to bodybuilding contest dehydrated and fasted
Training History – Do you have years of well developed muscle mass, or are you still a novice with room to grow
Current Training State – Are you pumped up from a workout or just got out of bed
And finally are you ‘dialed in’ to win a contest, or are you maintaining within striking distance for the next contest, photoshoot, or simply just the next time you feel like you want to tighten things up and make an impression.
Crafting a winning look to your body is a lot like working on a sculpture…but in this case the clay is your body and your tools are your workout and your diet (I think Arnold says it in a very similar way in his movie “pumping iron”)
Finally, the way you pose and display your body is the icing on the cake and could very well determine if you win or lose a bodybuilding show or the upcoming Adonis Index “open” competition.
In todays interview we pick Allen Elliots brain on how he learned to dial in for his bodybuilding show and really display his hard work through proper posing and contest conditioning.
Listen up if you’re thinking of entering the open, because Allen has some good advice and insights to share, AND some of you will likely be competing against him!
Hey we’re all in this together and we all want to see each other succeed (even if you’re technically competing against each other) we are all really on the same team.
