      I'm a newbie! 26 years old. Female.

      I've been building lean muscle mass for a while now, but I want to build up for my first bodybuilding contest.. I'm actually interested in all 3, bodybuilding, fitness and figure. I was a gymnast for 13 years, I'm strong and I'm lean but I need help when it comes to competing! I want to be stronger and leaner though and need the tools so I can do it.

      My diet is good and I know where I need to cut things out. I think my strength would be bodybuilding, but I get lethargic when my body fat drops below 10 or 12% body fat.


      I don't know whether to get a specialised trainer? I don't have a supportive bf either and am considering going to a different gym because he doesn't want me to compete and its something I want to do.

      Thanks, Jamie xo

      Welcome - I suggest checking in on Keeks and Fitrut journals.

      It is certainly worth investing in a trainer if they know what they are doing - it is a specialised goal and you need a specialised trainer for it.

      It is most definitely worth making sure you are in a proper gym for such things too.

      Is your boyfriend mad to NOT want his partner to have a physique worthy of competing???????

      I say go for it, get in a gym with like minded people if you can. Get a journal on here in the members pictures and journals section and post some starting pics so you can get good advice. Post info on diet and training too. Quite a few woman on here that compete, Rute (fitrut), keeks etc, and always willing to help.
