How Did You Get Started?
I ran both track and hurdles at high school and university, where I studied Sport Science. I used to lift weights as assistance work for running, but I seriously started to work out when I met my boyfriend (I met him at the gym ) who is a competitive powerlifter.
As I began training, we could see the progress in my body pretty quickly. So we decided that I should try body fitness (figure) competition.
My first competition, the Thai nationals - Thailand 2010, went very well; I won the figure category and became the new Thai champion. Currently I prepare for GPC Worlds PWL meet held in September in Prague, Czech Republic.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
I change my training routine quite often. The basic rule I usually follow is to train each body part at least 2 times a week. Off season I usually do 3 days a week of full body routines or 4 days a week upper/lower body routines. My pre-contest training is basically the same; 4 days a week, just occasionally add more resistance work and more cardio.
My current routine is traditional Westside barbell template, just split in 2 AM/PM sessions. On non-workout days I do cardio (30-40min) in the morning and calves, as I feel I need to improve them a bit.
Day 1 - Chest/Triceps/Shoulders/Back:
Often add some recovery exercises with bands by feel, stretching after each session.
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
I keep my protein and fat intake high all year, but pre contest I cut carbs completely. During my bulking phase I cycle the carbs high on workout days and low on non-workout days.
I have 1 (pre contest) or 2 (off season) cheat meals a week, I make them the last meals of the day and I allow myself to eat anything I'm craving for.
Example of high carb day:
