Eine zentrale Fragestellung treibt uns als Gesellschaft mehr denn je um: Wie kann die Energieversorgung nachhaltig und zukunftssicher aufgestellt werden? Eine Technologie rückt dabei immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt - die Kernfusion. Ende letzten Jahres wurde ein großer Durchbruch verkündet, der den nächsten Schritt hin zu einer nachhaltigen Energiequelle markieren sollte. Um die Komplexität, die dahinter steckt, annährend nachvollziehen zu können, muss man sich die Funktionsweise der Technologie etwas genauer anschauen. Genau das machen Michael und Timo in Episode 111. Über die Geschichte, welche einen militärischen Ursprung hat, erklären sie was bei einer Kernfusion passiert und welche Chancen sie für uns bietet. Auch kritische Stimmen sowie eine abschließende Einordnung finden wie gewohnt ihren Platz im Podcast.

Today on the podcast I am joined by Amber Boyers who is the Founder and Creative Director of Baiia, an Australian sustainable swimwear brand and home to the world's first 3-piece sculpting Wrapsuit & 4-piece Bikini. I have known Amber for a long time and it was a dream to have her on the podcast to dig deep into the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and what it means to innovate in a ‘saturated industry'. When I say this episode is JAM PACKED with everything you want out of a podcast, I mean it! Inspirational, motivational, raw and honest, Amber takes us through the journey of starting Baiia, some of the challenges she faced early on and how she scaled it from just herself to a 12 person team at the time of recording. We went deep on the many identity shifts that occur through the journey of entrepreneurship. To doing everything on your own to becoming a leader of a team. It isn't something we are born knowing how to do, we have to evolve. There is also the re learning that hustling or working more isn't necessarily the answer when it comes to growing a business. Despite what we have been told, sometimes the best thing we can do for our brand is find balance. I also asked Amber to share how she came to create her innovative wrap suits and how important it is to push the edges in a highly competitive industry. Amber mentions that where she is now isn't how she started and constantly catering to what was missing in the industry has lead her to push the edges and create something unique. We finally spoke about how she navigated Covid and how she used it as an opportunity to grow rather than fall behind. All the lessons she learnt in the past, helped her to make the most of the time and scale. This episode is great for any business owner who is looking to grow and scale. This is more than a conversation about swimwear, it's a personal development discussion and insights from a founder who has ridden the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship and come out the other side better for it. I know you will love it.

Bodybuilding is about sculpting our bodies into muscular works of art. Instead of a tangible sculpting tool, to unveil our masterpiece for a contest, we prioritize losing body fat and preserving as much muscle as possible. Bodybuilding is far beyond general weight loss and the expectations surrounding preparing for a show should be set accordingly from the beginning for best results.

(9:18) --Transcript-- What's up guys! I'm back again with part 2 of my new series where I break down in detail 10 tips for your first prep. If you listened to part 1 you are well versed on the different categories there are in bodybuilding and now know how important it is to choose the right one since what you are being scored on will differ depending on the category. Today I'm going to talk about what it means to get lean for a show and how hunger is often confused with leanness. Food, including excess food, or the opposite, hunger, are a major part of what makes bodybuilding unique. For the average person, if you are preparing for a bodybuilding show, there will come a time when you are going to have to just be hungry. But there is a difference between being hungry and actually starving. We are not starving when doing a bodybuilding show. Everything we are doing is our own doing and choice. There is a fridge with food in it, even if it's not for you, it's still there. You can still eat it. There is choice. Starving would mean you have no food and limited access to it. There is this sorority of suffering out there that loves to be overly dramatic about how hungry they are in their prep. Hunger when preparing for a show is your own will. And it's part of being a bodybuilder for many, and it's part of what it takes for many to get really lean. And in my opinion most of the people complaining about how hungry they are, don't look lean or very close to contest ready. More on this in a minute. First let me put in perspective that there is also a group of people who can't keep weight on and in order to grow muscle they have to eat excess food beyond what their hunger tells them in order keep the weight on. We all know people like that, and it may be you too. They are always lean and struggling to put on size, and never do cardio. So again, they are lean, but they aren't complaining about being starving. In order for them to be lean and muscular, they have to eat more food and be mindful of calorie expenditure. The extreme to this is with the IFBB open men's bodybuilding division. Their struggle in bodybuilding is that they have to eat an extreme amount of food in order to keep the mass on. 4x Mr Olympia, Jay Cutler, used to wake up in the middle of the night to eat or he would drop too much weight. Derek Lungsford just announced last week he is withdrawing from the 2023 Olympia after a year of preparing for this show because he has been throwing up food and can't keep it down, despite trying to force it down even after vomiting. He is having stomach issues and is now prioritizing his health and not the contest. He believes that once he gets things figured out he will be back to focusing on bodybuilding again. So there are two types of people, those who have to put extra effort into keeping weight on, and those who have to put extra effort into taking weight off. Those who have to eat a lot to keep weight on, you don't really hear complaining from them on the internet. Those who are a part of the sorority of suffering are those who are being drama about having to be hungry while controlling their calorie intake to drop weight. And they are also those who tend to not come close to being lean enough for a show, complain a lot about how hungry they are their entire prep, stuff a luggage size bag with junk food to eat the minute they get off stage, continue for the next week to eat like an asshole after their show, and then gain a ton of weight after the show, and blame their weight gain on “metabolic damage.” This behavior is all over the internet and gives bodybuilding a bad name. Some people are legit hungry from bad coaches with protocols that include 800 calories, white fish, and gobs of cardio, which you guys have heard me talk about in one of my first podcast episodes on what I call the death of credibility. But for the majority of people who have to control calories to get lean for a bodybuilding show and are not a part of the sorority of suffering, I think most new people get into bodybuilding with grandiose expectations on weight loss and underestimate how long it really takes, and how much consistency you need to have following the protocol, in order to get bodybuilding lean. Personally, when I want to drop weight, I know that for about the first 4-6 weeks I am not going to see any positive reinforcement from my efforts to lose weight. I have to keep my head down and stay consistent, and just not think about it. During this time I'm always hungry too. Plus I love food. Besides bodybuilding, I would say eating good food is one of my favorite hobbies in life. There is nothing like a good meal. I don't like complete junk though. I like real good food. And I'll pay good money for it too. After all the years of bodybuilding I learned some foods aren't worth the calories or some foods are just a chemical shitstorm that I don't want to put in my body. But real good food. I'll travel for it. So when preparing for a show or even just trying to lose the 15 pounds I've been telling my husband I plan to do for a few years now, amazingly good meals go away. And that makes me sad. Plus, I know that I just have to be hungry and pull out some of my tricks from my competition toolbox to help me suppress my appetite. So the process of getting lean is really not that fun for me until the freaky shreds appear. Until then, it's freaking boring. So I understand how controlling hunger is what makes weight loss a challenge for anyone, not just a bodybuilder. And tackling this issue is big business. You guys have all probably heard of the new weight loss drugs that are flying off the shelfs across the country. Drugs like ozempic for example. I will be launching a separate podcast here shortly all about these drugs and fat burners and pre workouts too. Vassilios and I recorded it live last week in our Facebook group Everything Else in Bodybuilding Podcast Insiders at our Thursday 1pm EDT show. Come join the conversation if you haven't yet. This one caught a lot of attention in our group. In summary, these new weight loss drugs control hunger. That's pretty much it. If you have a medical condition like type 2 diabetes or severe obesity then these drugs would be considered a medical intervention. For the rest of society, they are, in my opinion, not needed and do more harm than good. Especially if you are a bodybuilder, one of the side effects would be especially detrimental to you. I explain it all on the recent show we did and again you can check it out in our group or stay tuned here because I will be launching the audio here shortly. So what is bodybuilding lean and how do you get there? The goal of being bodybuilding lean is to be able to view the shape and detail of your muscles under the surface of the skin. In order to do this, your #1 goal is to drop body fat while trying to preserve as much muscle mass as possible. The lower your body fat, the more detail we will see in your muscles. How much muscle you have and the detail we want to see will depend on your division, with the bodybuilding division requiring the most visible muscle, and the bikini and men's physique divisions requiring the least amount of size and detail of all the categories.. Regardless, at a minimum, for women, no matter what your division, you need to make sure your abs are tight and your glutes and hamstrings are tight. Whatever body fat you need to be for this to happen will be uniquely you. For men, same thing, you need to make sure at a minimum your abs are shredded for all your divisions. Again, whatever body fat you need to be to get there will be uniquely you. If you are in divisions that require more muscle, these same suggestions apply and are an understatement because you will need to show additional detail, which likely means you need to be even leaner. So it's not a magical scale weight or a dress or a pant size. It's a specific look. Your first prep is a quest to discover your muscle in all is glorious detail for the first time. It's hard to say how long it's going to take to get you there. I highly suggest you stay open minded about the literal show you are doing. If you want to pick a division and federation, cool, that will give you somewhat of a target to focus your training and nutrition on. But wait on picking your first show until you are in beach shape. I often say there is a difference between looking hot on the beach and looking contest ready. If you are looking great on the beach, you are not lean enough for the stage. But you are in great shape and with some extra focus you can be contest ready very soon. If you aren't inn beach shape and still have excess weight to lose, my suggestion is to not pick a show but to lose the excess weight first and then pick a show that is 10-20 weeks out. Don't pick the show first and torpedo into it. Get your body ready and take the time to do so. The shows will always be there. And the process of weight loss is not linear. So if a week goes by and you didn't lose a pound, your bodybuilding life isn't over, you just need to stay the course and give your body time to budge. You also need to start the process a lot sooner than you think. I feel like a lot of times people set themselves up for failure by picking a show and under-estimating the time it's going to take to prepare for the show. What makes bodybuilding special is the ability to lose body fat and preserve muscle so that should be the priority, not the literal pounds. You want to give your body plenty of time to slowly lose the body fat so you can not just preserve as much muscle as possible, but also allow ample time for your body, your hormones, your psyche, to adjust to the weight loss. Ever see someone continuously yo-you diet? They lose all the weight fast, only to gain it all back and then some. Weight loss, especially a lot of weight loss, if done slowly will likely become something you can sustain rather than purge after. Many people who have done these extreme weight loss protocols to get on stage never come back from it. Their relationship with food sucks. Their relationship with exercise sucks. And they disappear from bodybuilding. And this was all completely not necessary. What's the rush to get to the stage for? There are hundreds of shows all throughout the year. Why is it such a big deal to wait another 6 months to do a show? What is so important about that one particular plastic trophy that makes you willing to compromise your health over it? For myself, I estimate a pound of weight a week is good. But this is an average. I am not expecting to literally lose a pound a week. One week it might be a half, another zero, another 2lbs. It's an average. But right now, if I wanted to do a show, I'm carrying what I consider excess weight to a show anytime soon. If a show was a goal for me, I would make it a year to a year and a half from now. I would first lose about 15-20lbs over a 20 week period of time, so about 5 months, and then live there for a while at maintenance calories before even setting my sights on a show. So in summary, getting lean for a show is the same process as regular weight loss. We just do it longer. How long it will take for you will depend on where you are right now. Are you beach ready? Then you are within target of a show 12-20 or so weeks depending on your category. Still have excess weight to lose? Take the time to lose that first, live there for a bit, and then go back to dieting to get bodybuilding lean. Your goal would be to stay at hot on the beach or now hot for the holidays for those of us in America for just your regular lifestyle. Then take the 12-20 weeks to get ready. Having healthy expectations for the time it will take you to get lean for your show will set you up for success. If you dial in sooner than expected, that's a beautiful thing. Your coach will pull back on the throttle a bit. It's better to be early than behind in the process. There is so much nonsense out there. So please spread the word about this show to even one person today that is competing or thinking about competing. Also, if you can take a moment to leave me a review in iTunes, or post the podcast in the groups you are a part of on your socials to neutralize the nonsense that would be cool. Thanks guys for listening. I'll be back later in the week with another episode with my husband. I also have a really great interview coming up for those interested in the NPC and IFBB federation.

Just me here on the mic again today with a new podcast series I'm doing that breaks down my top 10 tips for all you new people thinking about doing shows. This is also a great refresher for you veterans too. A lot of you new people probably stumbled across this podcast after a lot of bumps and bruises while combing through all the nonsense out there trying to figure out this thing called bodybuilding. My federation is better than yours. Our federation is better because we are natural. My federation is the most prestigious. My federation is the most glamourous. You will hear me say over and over that the best federation is the best option for YOU. This is the most exciting and one of the most expensive hobbies you will ever take part in. So regardless of which federation you choose, today, I'm going to talk about the first of my 10 tips to help you better prepare and feel more confident for your first prep. Starting with the different divisions. There are so many to choose from it can get confusing. You've got bikini, wellness, men's physique, figure, classic physique, open bodybuilding, women's physique, and then you have other divisions that are more glammy like fitness model, model, muscle model, and so on. Knowing where you best fit is important because it can be discouraging to spend all the time an money preparing for a show only to place really low in a category for no reason except your body was better suited for a different category. So let's start with the bikini, men's physique, and the wellness divisions. Bikini is looking for an athletic amount of muscle and a proportionate physique. The amount of muscle required in the bikini division is the least amount you are going to see on a bodybuilding stage. This is usually where people start when they are new to training and bodybuilding, and especially after a weight loss transformation. You will see the bikini competitors in non drug tested federations leaner and more muscular than drug tested federations so if you are brand brand new you might want to make note of this. It can get confusing when you start looking at pictures. In fact, I saw a social media post recently of a side by side competitor photo from a coach who only works with clients training for NPC and IFBB shows, which are not drug tested. The “before” photo of his competitor looked like the “after” photos of what many new competitors look like when competing for the first time on drug tested bikini stages. So this might help you put things into perspective when I say the look of bikini is different in drug tested versus non drug tested organizations, but it's still the least amount of muscle required among all the different categories. Men's physique is the entry level division for the men's categories and requires the least amount of muscle compared to the bodybuilding division, so this is a perfect starting place for men who have had a significant weight loss or those who are somewhat new to training and are hitting a stride with their workouts. The biggest stand out with men's physique is the tight abs and a dramatic shoulder to waist ratio, so make sure your 6 pack is showing and you know how to flare those lats. There has been a dramatic upswing in the amount of men's physique competitors coming to me to learn how to pose and who are over 50 and looking to do their first show. It's a perfect division for you! My over 50 men's physique posing clients start off a little shy at first. In a private session I asked one of my students to do something with hit foot and his initial response was, “I feel like a ballerina.” I took a screen shot of him and pulled it up for him to see what he looked like with the foot position change and compared it to a screen shot I took of him without the adjustment. His response was not only did he not look like a ballerina, he looked pretty freaking good. And slowly the confidence blossomed. So, men, you can look strong, athletic, powerful, and artistic at the same time. Just freaking let go and watch the magic happen. I won't let you look like a ballerina, ok? Wellness is probably the division that confuses people the most. Wellness isn't an out of shape bikini competitor. Or a soft and thick bikini competitor. Wellness is a division that rewards a very specific body shape and appearance. Wellness is for women with trained physiques that are structurally lower body dominant. Many women are confusing this category because they are assessing their body when they are carrying excess body fat and thinking that this is their structure. Remember, I said wellness is looking for a trained physique. In layman's terms, you need to be muscular. So assessing your physique when you are leaner is important. For example, me, I'm nowhere near contest shape right now and am loving lifting heavy and getting stronger. I have a boootay right now. And some thick legs too. If I wear shorts I got a little SWISH going on with my quads as they sweep past each other with every step. My fat distribution is lower body dominant at the current moment. But if I drop 20lbs and show my trained physique this is not the case. Structurally I am quite symmetrical. When I drop weight the symmetry shows. So you can't be analyzing your body in the off season when it's not looking as trained and detailed. I'm seeing a lot of symmetrical bikini girls thinking they are wellness and doing some super squatty posing to create more lower body dominance. I don't advise doing this. I advise you get an honest assessment on your structure and best category from the beginning so you can start posing and learning better stage presence for the category you want to score your best in. Feel free to post in my Everything Else in Bodybuilding Podcast Insiders group on Facebook and ask more questions on this. It's a free group where we have conversations on all of these episodes and all things bodybuilding. Moving on to the more muscular categories like Figure, Women's Physique, Classic Physique, and Bodybuilding. Starting with Figure. Figure is looking for a trained, symmetrical, physique. Figure was designed originally to provide another option for Fitness competitors who were required to do an athletic performance as part of their scoring. Many fitness competitors didn't want to have to do the routine that included things like strength holds, flexibility, gymnastic tumbling, dance, and more. Many suffered injuries. So figure was born and it was meant to look a fitness competitor. Over the years it has evolved into being a division that looks for a very specific style structure. A wide shoulder to waist ratio. Very trained physique with visual cuts in the quads and detail in the hamstrings. Broad shoulders with dense caps to them. And of course tight abs and a small waistline. You don't develop this type of physique with 2 years of training. So the figure division is for very athletic women who have many years of training under their belt and are symmetrical, not lower body dominant. But don't be scared by the description of capped shoulders and quad cuts. The posing that is required for the figure division is meant to dramatize these features on you. The poses are not shapes we stand in in everyday life. In fact, I remember my friend Shelley calling me a “sleeper” because when I stood normal I look unassuming and small. But when I flared my lats and flexed, poof, I look like a completely different person, and joked that I looked like a flying squirrel. So don't be intimidated by this division. It's a great option for those who have developed and carry more muscle. Women's physique is a relatively new division that was started because the bodybuilding division in the non drug tested federations evolved into having an extreme amount of muscle, yet women still loved the concept of bodybuilding poses. I started in the bodybuilding division. My foundation is bodybuilding. And I will always love bodybuilding poses and I love teaching all of it to men and women in my weekly virtual posing classes and 1 on 1s. But with the evolution to an extreme look in the bodybuilding division in non drug tested federations, popularity decreased and there was even a time that the women's bodybuilding division was removed completely from the Olympia competition, which is the largest bodybuilding competition the world, until die hard women's bodybuilding fan Jake Wood bought the show and brought it back. Women's physique became widely popular when it first started and Dana Lynn Bailey won the first Olympia in 2013. She has since gone on to become a mega star. The distinct difference between women's physique and the bodybuilding division is the amount of muscle and definition of the competitors, although over the years, since about 2017, this line has blurred in the non drug tested federations, and if you ask me, women's physique is barley recognizable from when it first started. It's super super lean and very muscular now.. The posing is also distinctly different with women's physique competitors being required to do muscularity poses with open hands rather than with closed fists. Both divisions do not require women to wear the high heels like you have to wear in the figure divisions. Since it's inception, drug tested federations have adopted the women's physique category and over time its popularity trumped the popularity of the women's bodybuilding division and now some federations don't even have women's bodybuilding anymore and their most muscular division stops with women's physique. This is not the case everywhere though. Some drug tested federations don't have women's physique at all and still have bodybuilding, because again, the initial adoption of the division was because there was a need for it in non drug tested federations where the jump in muscle from figure to bodybuilding was significant. This is not the case in the drug tested - also called - natural bodybuilding. The evolution in the natural bodybuilding federations that added the division was based on popularity of the look with the open hands and style of posing. In addition there are federations that have physique style posing where they do require you to do them in high heels, which can be super fun. So there is merge of the concepts in some places as well. I love teaching the posing for these divisions. In fact I have a weekly virtual posing class every Wednesday night at 6pm EDT for women's physique, bodybuilding, classic physique, men's physique, and the division with heels called Fit body. Come learn to flex and look like a badass ladies! Go to weeklyposing.com for more info. Next up the men's classic physique division. The reason for the creation of this division is similar to the story I just shared about women's physique and bodybuilding. The open men's bodybuilders in the non drug tested federations became what is called “mass monsters.” These competitors are still hitting 300lbs in their off season! Not every one wants to carry this amount of size or do what is required to obtain this amount of size. People starting comparing the look of Arnold and the guys from the golden area of bodybuilding and saying how aesthetic bodybuilding used to be. From this was born the classic physique division and the first Olympia was in 2016 with Danny Hester claiming the first title. Although since then the current champion Chris Bumstead has gone on to be debatably the most popular bodybuilder in the world right now. The natural organizations have different opinions on this division. Some natural organizations say that classic physique IS natural bodybuilding and don't see a need to adopt it. And other natural organizations have included the division because of its popularity all over the world and created their own distinct judging requirements for this division that separates it from the bodybuilding division. It's a very fun division because the posing styles are more artistic. I'm seeing a rise in popularity of this division among the young bodybuilders who love the posing style. Plus you wear classic style shorts and not the banana hammock you need to wear in the bodybuilding division. So if you are a proportioned, trained athlete who loves bodybuilding poses, this is a great option for you. My best suggestion for you guys is to have an honest conversation with yourself about your best angles, shapes, and really focus your posing your body to accentuate all of this. I work on this a lot in my weekly group virtual classes too. In fact there is such a desire for this division from OCB competitors that I had to create a whole separate class. This class runs on Sundays at 12pm eastern. Go to learntopose.com and scroll down to the ocb class to find out more info. Ok so let me summarize all of this for you. A quick way to choose the right division is to assess how much muscle you have. Bikini and men's physique are for those who are new or newer to training with a couple years under their belt; however, in the non drug tested federations this is still true but you might need a few more years of training to build the muscle that they tend to reward there. Figure and wellness are for those with more trained physiques and with more years of building muscle under your belt. Wellness is just as trained as Figure except where you carry your muscle is more lower body dominant than in the figure division. Men's classic physique and women's physique are spin offs of the bodybuilding division and have gained popularity over the years for their uniqueness in posing styles and the celebrity of athletes like Chris Bumstead and Dana Linn Bailey who really helped expand the popularity of these divisions worldwide. These divisions require more muscle and more leanness in body fat compared to the bikini, figure, wellness, and men's physique categories, but not as much as the bodybuilding divisions. So if you have been training for quite a long time and love the idea of muscularity poses, classic physique and women's physique are great options. And the bodybuilding division, is the most extreme of all divisions, and requires your body fat to get down to extreme levels to showcase all of your muscle and detail. Besides all of these bodybuilding options are organizations that provide a completely different style of competition that is more pageant like than what you get with a standard bodybuilding show. You might really enjoy lifting and want a fun goal. Or you have had an incredible weight loss transformation and you want to be judged more on your uniqueness not how well you fit within a specific bucket of criteria, or how tight your glutes are, or how lean you are. You want to celebrate and showcase your uniqueness on stage and be scored on that. You want more stage time and not be spun around in a circle 1 or 2 times and then shuttled off stage. You want to wear costumes and design something fun that showcases your personality and style. You want more focus on how glamorous the stage looks and the best lighting for your moment on stage. If this is you, there are options for you. Fitness Universe and Musclemania are the longest running organizations for this style of show. It was originally a television show that was on mainstream ESPN back in the day. The men's options include physique, classic, and Model. The women's options include Model, bikini, and figure. The judges are modeling agencies, actors, choreographers, and other industry experts. You are 100% scored on your uniqueness. And the look is not extreme. You don't have to have the most etched glute and hamstring tightness on stage to win. This is a perfect option for those who want a fun fitness goal without the extremeness of a bodybuilding show. Come to one of my official virtual posing clinics to learn more about the categories. More info at learntopose.com and scroll to the clinic section The WBFF is also more of a fitness meets fashion show but they are under a lot of heat lately for their judging and financial practices. They just made a huge announcement about many changes happening in 2024 with their scoring and judging practices. They have a bikini, fitness model, wellness, and the figure category for the women and a male model and muscle model categories for the men. Similar to bodybuilding organizations, the amount of muscle rewarded in the categories is what makes each of them distinctly different. What makes the organization unique is there is more than just a swimsuit round for most of the divisions. Theme wear or evening wear are required as well, which can be super fun for people. They do reward a more muscular physique so this is definitely a glamorous organization but you have to have some muscle too. The bikini girls aren't ripped but they do have full round quads. The fitness model girls have cuts in their quads. The figure girls are super jacked. The men's categories are lean too with the muscle model being simply just more muscular than the model category. The biggest difference between this organization and a regular bodybuilding organization is you better be able to work a stage. There are also theme wear divisions like this in the INBA/PNBA and the OCB even has a glamour division they just added to a couple of their shows too. These divisions are an add on to the bodybuilding style shows so the show experience isn't like a tv show like the Fitness Universe and Musclemania, but the divisions are still super fun for those looking for more than just a standard bodybuilding experience. So as you can see there is something for everyone. If you love to perform and the idea of theme wear excites you, there are options for you. If you would rather stick a needle in your eye than wear a costume, there are more traditional options for you too. But for the most part, even if you are competing in a pageant type show or a traditional bodybuilding show the difference between the categories is….yup, you guess it…. The amount of muscle you carry and how lean you need to get to be competitive. The difference in the categories from federation to federation is their interpretation of acceptable muscle and level of leanness for each category with the drug tested federations rewarding less muscle and leanness than non drug tested organizations.

I hope you have been enjoying listening to the men's perspective on bodybuilding and fitness with the addition of my new weekly discussion episodes with my husband Vassilios hosting with me. He and I will be back again later this week with another episode. We also record these live every week in the Everything Else in bodybuilding podcast insiders Facebook group in case you want to watch these episodes and participate in the discussion in real time. But today it's just me here sharing some of my thoughts on a topic that I think is very important for those who wish to compete in more than one federation. Over the years the bodybuilding industry has changed a lot and more and more federations have popped up giving people new opportunities to compete in their local area. There are also the federations that have grown into empires with a large pool of participants and a large number of shows around the country and world. With this many organizations and opportunities to compete, I've had many people ask me what are the rules on changing federations? I've mentioned it before that many coaches will align with a particular federation and only coach athletes for shows within that federation. Some coaches will only coach athletes for drug tested federations because of their strong belief in natural bodybuilding. Some coaches will only coach for NPC because they believe that their federation is the only one of value in the bodybuilding industry. And some don't care where you compete and will coach you anywhere you wish to go. This is relevant for posing coaches too. Many stay in their lane and coach for the division they competed in themselves. Some will only coach for the federation they competed with. There is nothing wrong with specializing in one area. For example, when I was searching for an orthopedic for an injury, I had to weed through the orthopedics on the office roster to find a doctor that worked on the area of the body I needed help with. Just like in bodybuilding there are specialists within specialists. This is very common. I consider what I personally do uncommon because because my speciality is posing for ALL bodybuilding federations and all men and women divisions. I work with hundreds of athletes a year and this year alone I've taught posing for athletes in over 10 federations. My current roster includes men and women bodybuilders, classic physique competitors, wellness competitors, figure competitors, bikini competitors, men's physique competitors, women's physique competitors, fit body competitors, glamour, and the list goes on. In any given day I will switch between all the divisions by the hour. And my virtual group classes will include anywhere between 3-5 divisions in one hour. Yes, in one of my classes, I will manage, teach, and provide value to men and women in 5 divisions at ONCE. Wonder how I provide value to so many? Well you have to come and see. Right now in one of my classes that has 5 divisions, most of these students have been in the classes for 9 months. Those who leave tend to come back. And many tell their friends and teammates about the classes. So my speciality is very specific in that it's posing for all of bodybuilding, but it is much broader than what you are going to find anywhere else. The reason I say all of this, is because my experience means I know all the different nuances among the federations. And today I'm going to share my thoughts on some dos and don'ts and spoken and unspoken rules when switching between federations. Let me first say that there are two very different paths you can take in bodybuilding. One path is drug tested federations like the OCB, WNBF, INBA/PNBA, Musclemania, Fitness Universe, USBF, and so on. And the other path is the non drug tested federations like the NPC/IFBB and the WBFF. Some people are surprised to hear that WBFF is not drug tested. It is in fact not. By the way just because you compete in a drug tested federation doesn't mean everyone is honest. There have been many people caught using banned substances in drug tested federations. The INBA/PNBA even has a “wall of shame” where they will put your picture on their website to make sure everyone knows you are banned from their federation for lying about drug use. And just because you compete in non drug tested federations doesn't mean you are on drugs. I've competed and won shows in the NPC and competed on the WBFF pro World stage too. I am 100% natural. You can absolutely compete in these federations if you are drug free. I think the biggest issue today with people coming into the sport is that these non drug tested federations have a different interpretation of acceptable amount of muscle. So it's not that you can't compete there, it's a question on whether you will be COMPETITIVE when you compete there. This is one reason people switch between federations. If you look at the amount of muscle on the figure, women's physique, classic, wellness, and open bodybuilding competitors in the IFBB, which is where you compete when you get your pro card in the NPC, and compare it to the amount of muscle in a federation like the OCB for example, you will see there is a dramatic difference in overall size and hardness of the muscles. I think it's safe to say that if you are a pro in any of these divisions in the IFBB you are on a completely different path than the OCB. In my opinion, you cannot build the amount of size these people carry without drugs. Unless you are that 1% of the population like 5x Figure Olympian champion Cydney Dillon who claims to be a natural athlete. Which leads me to the bikini and men's physique categories. These categories were introduced to bodybuilding as more entry level divisions for those who are new to the sport and don't have the years of training and muscle building behind them to be competitive in the other categories. Originally the descriptions of these categories even said “beach body.” Adding these categories was the boost bodybuilding promoters needed because it dramatically increased the amount of people capable of competing in shows. Which increased registrants and audience attendance. This goes for all bodybuilding federations. The beauty of these divisions has made it possible for people from all walks of life, all ages, to have an incredible physical transformation and compete in a show as a way to showcase it. In fact, the largest growing age group reaching out to me for posing assistance are men and women over 50. It's a beautiful thing to hear their stories and how many of them always wanted to compete but things never aligned in life to do so until now. So where do they go? Where do they compete? NPC non drug tested? Drug tested? A lot of them compete in BOTH. Because from a physique and acceptable level of muscle standpoint, as an amateur, and let me be clear that this is an an amateur, there are much more people capable of being competitive in either drug tested or not drug tested federations on the local and national level. Once you get to the pro level with the non drug tested federations, it's a different conversation because the level of muscle and leanness is on another level. But locally as an amateur, you can absolutely do well in either federation if you are a bikini or men's physique competitor. Many new to competing look to see what shows are offered in their local area. With NPC being a very large federation they have thousands of shows around the country. Not every drug tested federation has competitions in every state like the NPC does. In fact many drug tested federations have a presence in a specific region of the country. So if you are in a state that doesn't have shows offered, especially if you are new, you are not likely to want to pay for airfare, car rental, and additional hotel time just because you want to do your first show. So most people compete locally at first. Which brings me to the rules on switching federations. Many new people to bodybuilding compete and win their pro status very quickly in the non drug tested federations but for various reasons want to compete with other organizations besides the one they are a pro in. These reasons range from: wanting more stage time, not feeling like they are ready to compete with the pros yet, and many competitors who get a master's pro card (which is a pro card for those in a category over a certain age), are disappointed to see the number of shows offered to master's only pro competitors is very limited, and they want to compete more. Can you do this? Overall as an amateur you can do whatever you want. And I encourage you to get on stage more than once for more experience. Plus you worked really hard to get on stage for your show, why would't you want to do more than one after all that work? The day goes by so fast. However, once you get a pro card, the rules as a professional in each organization are different. And you have to read the fine print. Or feel free reach out and ask me or ask in our podcast insiders group. In general, if you get a pro card in the NPC and become an IFBB pro, you are discouraged from competing elsewhere. You sign contracts when competing too. IFBB is very restrictive. In fact, I have judged for 4 federations in the bodybuilding industry. A couple years ago I reached out to the NPC district chairman in my region and offered to judge the local NPC shows in my area. I was asked to provide a resume so I did. I described my experience as both a head judge and a panel judge for multiple organizations, a champion competitor in the NPC, my decades of experience, and so on. The response I received was black or white. I was told that if I wanted to judge for the NPC then I can no longer judge for any other federation. This was just judging you guys. You don't make a living judging. In fact you get paid pretty much just gas money when you judge a show. You are a judge because you love the sport and want to give back to it. Which was my intent. Needless to say, I decided not to judge for the NPC and to instead give back to NPC competitors by continuing to help with their posing and choreography with the business that I own and operate full time and make my living with. I am proud of being versatile in the bodybuilding industry and love that in the past year alone I judged the Fitness America and Musclemania weekend in Hollywood last November, head judged for the WNBF pro am show in NY, and judged multiple pro am shows for the OCB too. Not one of these three federations ever asked me to not judge anywhere else. In fact, I have the honor of doing the official OCB virtual posing clinics every month. Marjorie and Sully both thank me for doing them and tell me how much they appreciate what I am doing for their athletes. They tell me they appreciate me. They feel that what I do is a service to their athletes. And they know I teach and judge for other federations. In addition, I'm about to launch official virtual posing clinics for the Fitness Universe and Musclemania organization too, beginning October 1st. Fitness Universe is nothing like the OCB organization. Competing in OCB and Fitness Universe is nothing like the other. They are completely different so they aren't competitors if you ask me. Regardless, each owner knows I teach across all federations for my full time job and they both believe that what I provide their athletes is a great service to them. I do also have NPC virtual posing clinics going on monthly right now, but they are not official, and, as you probably guessed, this is because I teach for other organizations. They provide the athletes in the NPC the exact same in value and education custom to the federation. In fact, one of my previous NPC clinic attendees said she learned more in 15 minutes at my virtual posing clinic than she did at an in person event run by the organization. So if you are thinking of competing in any of these organizations I highly recommend you start with one of my virtual posing clinics. I have them all listed on my website learntopose.com if you scroll down to the services section. So again, what you can and cannot do once you are a pro or working professionally within an organization depends on the organization. Many competitors fear they will lose their pro card if they compete elsewhere. If you are an IFBB pro, you will be discouraged from competing elsewhere. As an amateur, no one is going to prevent you from competing at a NPC show if you ran across the street and did an OCB show. Again, it depends on amateur versus pro status. Now let's talk pro status in the natural federations. The OCB had a rule that if you were an OCB pro and you competed in a non drug tested federation you would no longer be eligible to compete as an OCB pro. A large number of athletes reached out the OCB and voiced their concerns that they wanted to compete locally so they didn't need to fly to compete and there were NPC shows in their area. Last year the OCB heard the athletes and removed their rule. So going forward as an OCB pro athlete you can compete where you want and not risk losing your pro status. A large number of other drug tested federations have actually signed a pact amongst each other that allows you to compete as a pro in their federation no matter where you received your pro status. A pro is a pro to them. So you are not discouraged at all to compete in other federations. They don't care. Other federations will discourage you from competing elsewhere but don't make a big stink out of it and disallow you from coming back. They prefer that you not win a show and take money and to leave, but that's not a requirement. The three main pro federations that draw a line in the sand once you become a pro are the IFBB, WBFF, and Muclemania/Fitness Universe. You do risk your pro status when you leave and compete elsewhere. You will have to re-qualify for it. But again this is the pro level where you are now competing on stages and, with the exception of Fitness Universe and Musclemania, you are earning money within that organization. Once you start earning money things change. Up until that point as an amateur you can pretty much do whatever you want. Some coaches will say you can't cross over but that's really just their opinion and people being drama. Alright guys I hope you found this episode helpful. Let me know by commenting, liking, and subscribing to the podcast! Head on over to the everything else in bodybuilding podcast insiders group on Facebook and join the conversation too. And if you are getting ready for a show and want to learn how to pose and be competitive on stage in your category, I have official virtual posing clinics for the OCB every month, next one October 7th. and, beginning September 30th, I'm starting back up my NPC virtual posing clinics too, and finally one more big announcement, on October 1st I will be hosting my first official Fitness Universe virtual posing clinic. Fitness Universe is great for those interested in trying a federation with production like a tv show and divisions that include male and female model. A list of all clinics can be found on my website learntopose.com in the services section. Alright I'll be back later this week with my husband for our weekly discussion. See you later!
