Teen Bodybuilder of the Week: Krista Pallett! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

When I was a senior in high school I started working out with my mom and her personal trainer just to kind of "stay in shape". Our trainer suggested competing in a figure competition. I had recently stopped playing volleyball so I decided I needed a new goal. I hired a nutritionist and started training harder than ever. I competed in my first show in June of 2008 and I absolutely loved it! I had the time of my life up on stage!

This is a workout plan that I feel has worked best for me. I try to stick to this, but I mix it up sometimes to trick my muscles. I am trying to build up my back and shoulders so I focus on them a couple times a week. Along with lifting 6 days a week, I usually do 30 minutes of cardio daily.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I have always used l-glutamine and creatine and they seem to work well for me. Also I started using Satur8 Rush before my workouts which is my new favorite pre workout supplement! In the past I have gotten really bad muscle cramps and the Satur8 helps prevent those. Also it tastes amazing! With proteins I use Optimum Nutrition Whey and Casein products.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love it because of how it makes me feel. My body started feeling better than it ever had once I began eating clean and working out on a regular basis. I also like to challenge myself in the weight room and see how hard I can actually push myself. It is really amazing being in control of my body and what I put into it. I love seeing the changes and knowing that I am responsible for them. It's just an overall amazing feeling.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I really want to earn my pro card and it would be such an achievement to one day walk across the Olympia and Arnold stages. Also, I want to inspire others to start living healthier lives. I look up to so many ladies in the figure industry right now; I want to someday be the one that a young girl looks up to. I am also studying to become an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. I want to use my knowledge to help other people accomplish their goals and feel better about themselves as individuals.
