    Hi. I would like to know what are the opinions on the length of time to prep and lean out for a bikini/figure Show.
    I understand that it depends on the individual - metabolism, dieting history, how lean the person is etc.
    But I've heard of some natural competitors male and females alike who prepped for 5-10months on end. The reasoning being to cut slow so as to keep as much muscle as possible instead of a more drastic cut when going into a shorter time frame for prep (say 8-16 weeks).

    Erik, what are your thoughts about this if you don't mind chiming in ?

    Thanks.

    I'm new to this as well. I've heard 16 weeks is an appropriate time, but I'm sure people vary that time depending on how their bodies adjust.
