How to shoot a fitness magazine cover shot. Prep, poses & lighting for fitness photography

I want to show you the prep, the poses and the lighting that go into shooting one of those classic fitness magazine covers that you see in the supermarket checkout line. White background, clean, crisp commercial lighting, three quarter length pose, really fit and sexy subject who looks really happy. Now do you know what I am talking about?

Fitness photography is actually pretty easy to do with the right gear and planning. So let’s talk first about why you would do it or should you do it the next time you are working with a model on his or her portfolio.

If you are a photographer that works with models this type of fitness shot can serve several purposes in a modeling portfolio.

1. It looks like a tearsheet. I am not suggesting you ad a title and words and make a pretend fitness magazine cover. Please don’t be that photographer. I am simply pointing out the psychology – since the photo looks like one of those shots you see on the magazines – it has a subliminal effect of making the model look experienced. We are not saying that he or she was actually on a cover.
2. This shot is a great body shot for the models book. Contrary to what Tyra Banks and Janice Dickinson claimed in their reality TV shows – a model doesn’t have to pose nude. In fact a model doesn’t have to pose in lingerie or even a swimsuit if that makes them uncomfortable. From a business perspective it is an economy of scale – the more things the model is comfortable with – then the more opportunities that may exist. All that said, if you are working with a model that is uncomfortable being photographed in swimwear or lingerie – the fitness shot is a great way to be able to show off body proportions without showing too much skin.
3. It’s a great way to show that the model really is in great shape. Action fitness poses are often not the most flattering. Even though this type of shot is very commercial and even kind of cheesy – it provides a modeling agency and potential client with a LOT of valuable information about the model.

The PERFECT Total Body Workout (Sets and Reps Included)

Constructing a single perfect total body workout is a challenge when you consider all of the muscle groups that you will need to hit in that workout. That said, I’m going to deliver exactly that in this video. If you want to try just a single total body workout routine if you are new to this type of training, then you will want to do the A workout. If instead, you want to adopt a more rigorous total body split workout routine, then you will want to pair this up with the B workout and perform them in alternating fashion on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

First, it helps to discuss the benefits of total body workouts. This type of workout split allows you to train the bigger muscles of the body utilizing the more compound exercises. These are the exercises that lend themselves to increased strength at a faster pace and also help to coordinate multiple muscle groups into one action, making them more athletically based and functional.

Given the fact that science will support the fact that stimulation and re-stimulation of a muscle every 48 hours produces the most amount of muscle growth with the least amount of wasted time, you will find that total body workouts take advantage of this. By allowing you to train your entire body every other day you are getting more frequent stimuli for protein synthesis, more accrued volume and more sessions in over a given period of time.

In this total body split, we focus not just on picking the compound exercises but rather on accomplishing specific movements. We want to perform a lunge, hinge and squat for the lower body; a push and pull for the upper body; and a corrective and carry to round out our workouts. The combination of these 7 components will not only hit all of the major functions of human performance but will lend themselves to picking the right exercises for getting the job done.

That said, let’s start breaking down the workouts.

Here is how to construct the perfect total body workout A:

1. 3D Lunge Warmup – 2-3 x 7 reps each direction
2. Barbell Squats – 3 x 5
3. Barbell Hip Thrusts – 3-4 x 10-12
4. Barbell Bench Press – 3 x 5
5. Weighted Chin Ups – 3 x 6-10 to failure
6. DB Farmer’s Carries – 3-4 x 50 steps with half bodyweight
7. Face Pulls – 2 x 12 (using 12 sets of 1 mentality)

Here is how to construct the perfect total body workout B:

1. 3D Lunge Warmup – 2-3 x 7 reps each direction
2. Deadlifts – 3 x 5
3. Barbell Squats or Barbell Reverse Lunges – 3-4 x 10
4. Barbell OHP – 3 x 5
5. Barbell Rows – 3 x 10-12
6. DB Overhead Farmer’s Carries – 3-4 x 50 steps with one quarter bodyweight
7. Face Pulls or other corrective – 2 x 12 (using 12 sets of 1 mentality)

If you are doing this workout just to try it out, then I would suggest you choose the workout A variation. That said, if you opt to do a more comprehensive total body split workout routine then you will want to either incorporate workouts A and B into a twice a week plan or, even better, alternating A and B on M, W and F each week.

Other total body splits exist as well. These include doing a complete push (including both upper and lower body) and pull that simply gets alternated six days a week. There is also the most comprehensive and effective of all and that is the TOTAL BEAXST program that I created and provide on our website at This plan is designed to not just build as much muscle as possible in 90 days but also help to build your athleticism and prevent unwanted injury that occurs often with other total body workouts.

If you’re looking to become a beast with a step by step plan based on total body split training, then head to the site via the link below and get ready to let the gains begin.

Nina Teicholz at TEDxEast: The Big Fat Surprise

Nina Teicholz is the author of the forthcoming book, The Big Fat Surprise (Simon & Schuster 2014), which makes the argument that modern nutrition science, over the past 60 years, has been wrong about dietary fat. She argues that eating fat is essential to good health, and that the saturated fats, as found in meat, cheese, cream and eggs, are the whole fats in whole foods that are essential for good heath. Teicholz has a background in food, science, and investigative reporting. She wrote on nutrition science for Men’s Health Magazine and broke the trans-fat story in the US for Gourmet magazine. She studied biology at Yale and Stanford Universities and was a health analyst for Lewin/ICF, a consulting firm in Washington, D.C. Teicholz has written on food, as a regular contributor to Gourmet magazine and for New York magazine and Time Out New York. She has also contributed, on a variety of topics, to the New Yorker, the Economist, the Washington Post, The New York Times, and Salon, among other publications.She was an on-air reporter for NPR for five years, including two years based in Rio de Janeiro, covering South America. She was the associate director for the Center for Globalization and Sustainable Development at Columbia University.

She lives in New York with her husband and their two sons.
