Season Finale: The emotional highs and lows after a big competition and how it affects relationships.
SEX, LOVE, & BODYBUILDING – goes beyond the gym and the competition stage and into the bedroom. Hosts IFBB Pro bodybuilder Akim Williams and pro Bikini competitor Margarita Ventura discuss everything sex, love, and relationships within the bodybuilding world. No topic is off limits as Akim and Margarita often find themselves diving into taboo sexual topics that we all think but hardly say. New episodes air every Friday!
We’ve talked about how contest prep is an emotionally high stakes time for most competitors… and how this in turn can affect how couples act in relationships. But what is less talked about is the fallout after a big bodybuilding contest. Whether you win or lose – emotions run intensely and how those emotions are expressed in a relationship can sometimes lead to fights or bad vibes.
To avoid letting these moments cause the death of your romantic relationships – IFBB Pro Akim Williams and Margarita Ventura discuss in detail what a competitors mindset is like right after a big contest and how they personally react to others around them during this time. They also give advice on how to best support a bodybuilder after a contest which can hopefully help advise away from couple fights and help strengthen a fitness relationship as it moves forward.
If you’ve ever had post-competition depression or have been dating someone who has gone through it – this episode might be just what you need to help gain even further insight on how to improve the bonds with your significant other during moments of hardship and stress. Check it out above!
