How do you console a loser of a bodybuilding contest?
« on: September 16, 2015, 12:16:43 AM »
After months and months of preparation and having not placed must break a guys heart. I always feel horrible when I see the losers leave the stage not to flex anymore for the particular show.

I can't tell if you're joking or not but i would always usually have another show coming up soon when i was competing so i accepted that i wasn't gonna win every show i was competing in so it didn't matter to me...I was just happy to be on stage with some of the people that i was....The food helps ;) lots of times on stage i would just be thinking of food...This is what prep does to you sometimes...It's not really till the week after or so when you're in a more "healthy-state" that you can really reflect accurately on the loss/win i found...

Just a bump in the road, a family member would get disheartened but would get a cheeseburger in him and he'd be talking about how he was gonna come back next year even better.

Went on to take national overall and has placed in the top mix at the international level multiple years in multiple classes.

Still trains and competes, money is no object, when you love it you love it.

And by that i mean, winner's are the ones that don't need consolidation.

Tell them the truth about their condition in the contest. Don't be ugly about it.

The guy will either have a fire lite under him to improve. Or they will get depressed and not put in the work to get where they need to be.

That happened to me at 232. Pro bodybuilder hold me I was too small. Started powerlifting and then went back to bodybuilding. Now, I stay in 265-295 contest/offseason.

No one is a loser who gets a plastic participation trophy.
