How and when did you start training?

I started training (seriously) about a year ago. Before that I really liked working out, but fell in love with it when I really started training hard and training for muscle growth.

In regards to weight training, can you give us an overview of a typical week?

Monday: Quads and Calves
Tuesday: Chest and Biceps
Wednesday: Back
Thursday: OFF (usually cardio twice on this day)
Friday: Hamstrings
Saturday: Shoulders and Triceps
"Active rest" which can range from a Boot camp outdoor workout, to a swim, bike, or outdoor run

How much and what types of cardio do you do?

5-6 days a week: Cardio for 45 mins - 1 hour (first thing in the morning); I like to switch up machines, but my core two cardio machines are the Stairmaster and Elliptical. I run on the treadmill occasionally, but if I choose running, I prefer an outdoor run. Some days I row as well.

What are the contents of your fridge?

Right now, lots and lots of eggs, chicken, turkey burgers, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, mixed veggies, milk, flax seed oil.

What 3 tips would give to any woman wanting to get femininely CutandJacked like you are.

First and foremost, don't be afraid of lifting those heavy-weights because that is the only way that those shapely muscles will grow.. Secondly, your diet is 70-80% of the fight.. I used to kill myself in the gym and end up breaking even because my diet was not as clean as it should have been. Eat 6 small meals a day that consists of protein, whole grain carbs and healthy fats... And as a result your metabolism is constantly going and you are never hungry! Success!

What is the number one philosophy you live by?

"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13
