Is everyone ok?
If you’re still with me, you’ve got guts girl! The kind of boldness deserving of the crown. There’s no better way to see how much you want it then in a swimsuit. I’m going to walk you through a few pointers to help you kill it in swimsuit, not drop dead!
How to Naturally Tighten your Abs while you Walk in your Swimsuit
When you are ready to secure your victory on stage, most of the work is already done before you get to this point. There are a few little things that you can do to make your presentation fantastic. One of the easiest ways is to hum a little song. When you step out into that spotlight, simply hum your favorite song to yourself quietly. Don’t belt out whatever is playing! The humming will help you to naturally tighten your abs without having to waste energy on concentration. Try it now. It really works! Make sure to pick a song that you love!
Keeping a Walking Tempo
I’m sure everyone has been in a pageant where you would have preferred to walk to Lady Gaga and not Elton John’s Greatest Hits. Elton’s cool (I think), but you cannot depend on the track selection to supply you with energy or a walking tempo. First, you should NEVER walk to the beat of any song. It’s a big no-no. Secondly, find the beat of the song and walk just a little slower than the speed. Think hot movie actress slow motion scene. You have worked hard for your body so don’t sprint across the stage.
If your pageant stage director has added a stopping point into your chorography, take advantage of that spot. Practice your best pageant poise at home to make sure this is the moment you want it to be. The judges are watching every inch so make it tight. Your position should be:
- Your left knee “popped” meaning your front (left) heel should be raised and in the center of your right foot.
- Hips should be facing an angle to the right.
- Shoulder should be parallel to the audience in front of you.
This will cause a sharp twist in the body that you will feel across you stomach in the same position a sash would be laying. Stretch this feeling literally and tighten all your muscles. This includes your butt and calf muscles as well. All your time working out has lead to this point.
Armed with a real workout routine, a great swimsuit, and a winning attitude, you will knock the judges out! Remember that confidence is always the best thing to take with you on stage and you should have nothing at all to fear.
