It all started as a New Year’s Resolution and a bet. Now here I am years later still winning that bet!
Honestly, I have had had ups and downs with motivation, but what keeps me motivated now is my passion and drive to be a powerful athlete someday. I love the feeling of moving iron all while working off stress and anxiety I sometimes get.
No cardio for me right now! Maybe going on a walk with my husband and our two pups, but nothing too strenuous.
When I do cardio for a competition prep I prefer the stair climber or windmill sprints to keep the booty lifted!
During bulking season I’m way more flexible with my eating, so no real prepping.
During a cut for a show I do meal prep and found that on my last prep I really enjoyed cooked spaghetti squash and would throw cooked ground turkey with some light marinara sauce on there!
Currently my nutrition consists of high amounts of carbs and calories because I’m looking to bring up my numbers in bench press, squats, and deadlifts for a powerlifting meet.
My playlist currently consists of old rock, like Dokken, or some newer rock like Avenged Sevenfold and Korn!
I just started with a powerlifting coach and so I typically train 5-6x/wk, mainly focusing on the 3 powerlifting lifts along with accessory work, like hamstrings and glutes.
My short term goal is to compete in a powerlifting meet, but my long term goal is to deadlift 450lbs or more!
I suffer from depression which makes it harder on some days when I’m in “those moods.” I’ve combated this by taking time to meditate and keep a list on my phone of why I have certain goals to remind myself to keep trying to better myself.
My first athlete is Stefi Cohen. She’s a beast at powerlifting and shows you can still look amazing while moving heavy weight!
Dana Linn Bailey comes in at a close second and she was the first athlete who inspired me to get into Figure bodybuilding.
Lastly, Larry Wheels because he proves you can compete in both the bodybuilding world and powerlifting world.
At this moment I literally only drink Bang Energy drinks as a “supplement” for my preworkout. Here and there I’ll have Quest protein cookies, but that’s it.
1st tip would be to understand your body structure, so for instance I have narrow hips so I “build an illusion” of having wider hips through certain exercises.
2nd tip would be to build a ground of strength, mainly because I firmly believe in order to build, you need some sort of strength to be able to move adequate weight.
3rd tip is that in order to transform yourself you must learn about yourself and to learn to love where you are currently at and through each phase of your journey.
