    would love any kind of advice that you could give regarding natural bodybuilding/figure competitions. One of my dearest friends has recently competed on natural bodybuilding and placed in Houston. My passion has always been fitness but I just dont know how to get where I want to be. I am looking to enter a figure competition in August. I am not sure about the diet or how much/ how less to work out.

    I am 5'9 158lbs about 28% bodyfat

    I work out 6 times a week
    cardio in the morning for 45 minutes- 5-6 times a week
    In the afternoons
    Mon- Legs- 4 sets each bodypart/10-12 reps 3 different excercises
    Tues- Chest/tri 4 sets for each body part/ 10- 12 reps - 3 different excercises
    Thursday- Back/Bi's/ Shoulders- same as above

    Workout@ 5am 45 min cardio
    6:45 egg whites/ toast
    10am- orange
    1pm- grilled chicken salad
    workout around 3pm
    4pm- orange
    7pm chicken w/ veggies
    sometimes a yogurt

    What am I doing right/wrong in order to get lean and cut.

    I will be honest w/ you, I am vaguely familiar with body building, but the first thing I noticed is you are not eating enough protein or enough period. If you are wanting to "build" your body you need to feed it, I would look around especially in the fat loss and/or nutrition sections - alot of example diets are on there. :gl:

    I'm doing about the same amount of cardio, and I've lost a lot of fat while gaining a lot of muscle in three months.

    I'm not at all familiar with bodybuilding, but it's something I might possibly look into in the future, since I'm so happy with my muscle gains in such a short time. :flex:

    It is according to what you are trying to do right now. Do you have a large layer of fat on top of your muscles or have you gotten to the body fat percentage that you want? If you have gotten to what you want try maintaing (which means a little less cardio - like 20 min. HIIT 3 times a week.) and see where that takes you with muscle gains. Hope that helps. :tu:

    I have not reached my fat % goal yet. So should I keep on with the cardio I am doing or cut it back to 3-4 times a week
