BodyBuilding Competition training:
Including Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini competitors

There are few trainers with the vast experience of training competitors for shows. With 18 years of experience in the National Physique Committee, 8 as a judge, I have the knowledge and desire to see my competitors win. Programs include diet, posing and workout schedules to help you achieve that victory.

Fitness Assessment

An important part of any responsible training program, a fitness assessment objectively measures your current level of physical fitness. Without an effective fitness assessment, growth cannot be accurately measured. Max's fitness assessment incorporates many different methods to achieve accurate results.

 The Fitness assessment measures:

  • Body fat
  • Physical endurance
  • Muscle strength

Hydration: Importance of WATER

Few people realize how important water is to the human body.  Up to 70% of total body weight is due to water.  Although it is present in all parts of the body, water is more concentrated in organs such as lungs and brain and fluids such as blood, lymph, saliva and secretions by the organs of the digestive system.

*It is estimated that 75% of Americans are dehydrated, and that 37% of Americans have a thirst mechanism so weak that it is mistaken for hunger

These are a few of the many things water does in your body everyday:

  • Water dissolves minerals, proteins, starch and water soluble nutrients and through the bloodstream, distributes them throughout the body
  • Adequate hydration assures that hormones, chemical messengers and nutrients reach organs
  • Every organ that produces substances used by the body relies upon water pathways for distribution
  • Water can be an adhesive material in cell structures
  • Water is used by the liver to metabolize fat into usable energy
  • Water controls the temperature in the body
  • Water is necessary for proper digestion
  • Water helps to lubricate joints
  • Water hydrates the skin 

How your body loses water everyday:

  • Even if you are not physically active your body can naturally lose water
  • Water is lost through perspiration
  • Urine production
  • Bowel movements
  • Through the lungs when you breathe
  • When you are outside in cold weather, the fog that you see when you breathe is water leaving your lungs as you exhale
  • Dietary habits can contribute to water loss, consumption of caffeine-containing liquids and alcohol
  • Consuming a high protein diet causes extensive loss of water from the body

How do you know if you’re dehydrated?   If you are not drinking AT LEAST 64 oz of water EVERYDAY, you are probably dehydrated.  (More water is needed when exercising!)

Why dehydration is detrimental:

  • Dehydration increases histamine responses in the body
  • Inhibits immune function
  • Asthma is a sign of dehydration
  • Dehydration can aggravate allergies
  • Dehydration causes fatigue
  • Dehydration causes headaches
  • Dehydration causes depression – can be a contributing factor in the development of symptoms of depression.  Dehydration can cause a loss of zinc and B6.  These nutrients are essential for brain cell activity and production of many neurotransmitters in the brain, some of which influence mood
  • Dehydration can cause heartburn.  Dehydration allows acid to reach the mucosal area, causing pain.  This pain is a signal that more water is needed.  Antacids will neutralize the stomach acids, relieving the pain, but will not address the principal problem, which is that the body needs more water
  • Dehydration can cause arthritis – the cartilage in a well-hydrated joint gets its nutrition from the blood supply to its attachment base to the bone.  Dehydration can cause friction, resulting in pain, swelling and tenderness
  • Dehydration can cause back pain
  • Dehydration can cause hypertension – can tighten the capillary beds and the vascular system when blood fluid volumes are reduced so there is no empty space in the circulatory system.  This system can also close capillaries.  These vessel closings and restrictions cause a rise in tension inside the vessels and capillaries, which we’ve come to know as “hypertension”
  • Dehydration can also cause kidney damage and muscle pain

Can you drink TOO MUCH water?

Adequate water intake daily to insure hydration and the ability of the body to cleanse itself is different than consuming too much water in a short period of time, such as, during a race.

Hyponatremia occurs when too much water is consumed too quickly and blood sodium levels are decreased. 

Drink throughout the day and do not try to drink 64 oz of water at the end of the night, in one sitting to “catch up” for the day.

Anyone can consume too much of a good thing, including water!
