Miss Fitness help

Hi Gymbabeliz,

I´m a new member here, I heard about you from someone and that you may be able to lead me in the right direction!!! See, a girlfriend of mine wants to become Miss Fitness, I am helping her on her way there. She was in the Miss Model category (we are in Austria) and she did quite well, but wants to move on up, I realise it´ll happen slowly but surely! At the moment she has a fat% of 20 or so, what is the average in this league? See she is quite small already, she has no cellulite so does this % matter too much? She weighs 55kg and is 165cm. Small frame. At the moment I am concentrating on getting her strength and flexibility up so we can go for a routine. We have 5 months until the first contest here and am wondering how much cardio I will be needing to put into her program, which will all depend on how much fat% we will need to get down. Any suggestions?

Thanks very much any advice appreciated[8)]

    Oh, I'm flattered you ask, but I'm in the same position! i havent actually competed yet. But I'll try to answer your quastions.

    Firstly she is the same height weight and bf as me! So she must be in great shape already

    no, seriously, the stats are the same and I'm also aiming for 4/5 months time and I am assured that I'll be ready by then so she should be able to do it too.

    I think fat is on average about 12% for fitness, but its about how you look not percentages.

    I wouldn't be worrying about the cardio too much yet. I've cut mine down a lot to concentrate on building more muscle, because if she's small now and diets later on, there's gonna end up being nothing of her. Strength and depth of muscle for now up until january, but doing enough cardio to keep from putting on any fat (thats the plan given to me by my trainer who has worked with several fitness girls, so i'm trusting him!)


    In January I'll be starting dieting and upping the cardio. I don't know how much i'll be doing, feel free to keep in touch either on here or mail me and I'll keep you up to date with my contest prep training.

    Hey that´s great that was actually my plan of attack too for the mo! I have to get her strength up because up until now I´ve only been concentrating on toning as she was in the other category so strength wasn´t important yet. So that´s fantastic. Your right I wasn´t too worried about her fat either cos she looks too small so this was a good confirmation that you are on the same track, I feel putting her on more fatburning would not bring too much. OK so if you don´t mind I´d love to keep in touch, I don´t know much about these contests myself and want to help her so thanks for the support. By the way you look very acrobatic[|)] I think we have a lot to do over here[^] Do you have a gym coach to teach you all the flips?

    Anyway Gymbabe thanks again for the help so much appreciated

    no problems, glad I could help!

    The acrobatic stuff, well I'm a gymnast anyway, so I have been able to flip since being a little kid. But it is possible to learn in later life - look at Monica Brandt!!

    However, its not a requirement to backflip. If your competitor is good at dance, or strength moves, focus more on them, don't kill yourselves trying to learn something too tricky...the main things to get are things like the one handed press, splits, straddle hold type moves.
