How to Choose Bodybuilding Trunks

How to Choose Bodybuilding Trunks

Do you have long legs or short ? Is your waistline long or short? Do you have a very small waist or are you somewhat thicker in the middle? Do you have a powerful, Herculean physique or one that is more slender and Apollonian? You need to take all these questions into account and choose the type of bodybuilding trunks that are appropriate to your individual physique.

We remember seeing a competitor with a good physique, but who had high lats, high chest, and a very long waist. Unfortunately, he had chosen to wear very small, low-cut trunks, and this just exaggerated the length of his torso and made him look out of proportion. If he had chosen bodybuilding trunks that came up an inch or so higher they would have suited him much better and improved his appearance onstage.

It is also important to choose the right color of your bodybuilding trunks. There is no hard and fast rule on this, but depending on your build and skin tone, one color trunks can make you look great while another might easily detract from your overall appearance. Deciding what color trunks are best for you is largely a matter of trial and error.

Try different colors, look at yourself in front of a mirror, have some photos taken, or ask the advice of friends. When you compete, look at photos of yourself taken onstage to see if you like the effect of the bodybuilding trunks you've chosen. Ask the judges for their opinion. We've seen bodybuilders who looked great in bright red bodybuilding trunks, but for others a bright red color makes their skin seem too red and ruddy, taking away from the quality of their tan. Again, you need to find out what works best for you.

Once you have determined the cut and color of the bodybuilding posing trunks you want to use, try to obtain several pairs so that you can put on fresh trunks after a long prejudging session and look your best for the evening show. It is also good to have extra bodybuilding trunks so that you can change for backstage photos or a picture-taking session the day after a bodybuilding competition.
