When did you get started with fitness?
When my father mentioned one day; “don’t even try gaining weight, we have high metabolisms and won’t be more than toothpicks our whole lives!” So my brother and I started a challenge of who can gain the most muscle the fastest. I got to train a bit harder while I was in the Air Force with all my buddies, and started gaining! After I got my nutritionist degree and personal training certification I was able to perfect my craft! 🙂
What drives you to be so fit?
What keeps me motivated is my goal to get on covers of magazines, always cognizant of how many other women are after the same thing.
Someone else out there is training harder, eating cleaner, and contacting more people! So I have to make sure I’m a step ahead of the game!
What has been the hardest obstacle for you to overcome?
Definitely trying to maintain muscle, my body wants to be thin so I have to train harder and eat more perfect to achieve my goal.
Could you tell us about your current training program?
I currently do the power hypertrophy program by Layne Norton. It consists of pulling and pushing movements one day, power days, and hypertrophy days. It’s great because it’s different than any other regiment I have done, it’s a great way to confuse my muscles. Also I do legs twice a week which I really need, also doing different exercises each day.
What does your diet look like?
6 egg whites 1 egg, 4 pieces of turkey bacon, oatmeal with blueberries, 6oz chicken with veggies, pre and post workout shakes, 6oz 4% fat beef with veggies
Do you take any supplements?
Orange triad by Controlled Labs, Purple Wraath by Controlled Labs, banana perfection Myofusion by Gaspari, Carnitine, fish oils, Green Bulge by Controlled Labs.
Final advice for readers?
Be consistent in your training and especially your diet, it’s the sure way to get results. –Lindsay Kaye
