    2012 Midwestern States Competition: my first show, physique class


    I am competing in my first show on July 14th, men's physique class.

    Im sick of dieting, thats for sure.

    I just wanted to see everyone's experience with a few things:

    1) facial hair: I normally have a very short beard. My trainer suggested shaving but isnt setting a hard rule on this.

    2) tanning: I am getting professionally spray-tanned. Should I do a few tanning bed sessions to get a decent base coat tan? Also what about my face? How do you guys get your face sprayed (because I dont think the spray tanning company will do the face).

    3) flip flops or barefoot?

    4) I know to bring some cheap sheets to the hotel (because of the spray on tan). Is there any other suggestions that anyone has for the week of the show?

    Thanks,

    Clark

    I had a goatie at my competition and nothing was said. Also I would do the tanning bed for a few weeks to get a base tan, and then spray. Try to spray the night before. I've seen a lot of guys who spray the day of and it never fails they oil up and/or sweat on stage and the bronzer will run. Looks horrible.

    Having a bit of a base tan helps with tanning the face better so you don't look washed out. I'd recommend it. I'd also recommend no lotions or skin conditioners about two days out, and make sure you are using a luffa the last week to really exfoliate well. You want all the dead skin off, and you want your skin to be as dry as possible. This will allow the tanning fluid to take better.

    edit: oops just saw your contest is over. Hope you did well.
