How old are you? And what kind of shape are you currently in? I believe 12-16 weeks, sometimes 20, is pretty “standard” for a contest prep, but your starting point is certainly going to play a factor, especially for your first contest.
You might want to check out this thread, with some guys talking about when they knew it was time to compete:
And this thread about competing as a teen:
I competed for the first time last year, aged 22. I had the idea of competing though from around the age of 20.
I was 45 for my first contest…
Diet was too long…
Hire a coach if you are unsure… Actually hire a coach period.
First competed at 35. I gave myself 16 weeks, but admittedly I was much leaner starting out than most people are.
