How Did You Get Started?
I started working out in high school. I always admired the women in the bodybuilding magazines like Cory Everson and Sharon Bruneau and wanted to look just like them.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
The most effective workout plan for me is weight training five days a week and if I'm pre-contest, doing cardio six days a week. I really like to do high volume training. My workouts change every couple of months but an example of my high intensity- volume workouts are as follows:
Sample Workout Week:
Monday: Back & Abs
Tuesday: Quads & Biceps
Wednesday: Cardio only 45-60 minutes
Thursday: Shoulders, Triceps & Calves
Barbell Military Press: 4 sets x 8 reps
Seated Dumbbell PressDumbbell military Press: 4 sets X 12 reps
Lateral Raise: 4 sets x 8 reps
Single lateral Raise: 4 sets x 12 reps
Reverse flyes: 4 sets x 8 reps
Friday: Hamstrings & Abs
Weighted Rope Crunches: 4 sets x 25 reps
Ball crunches: 4 sets x 15 reps
Oblique crunches: 4 sets x 15 reps
Saturday: Cardio Only 45-60 minutes
I typically do cardio five days a week and if I need to drop more body fat for a competition; I will add a sixth day if I'm not getting results quickly enough. I will do approximately one hour to an hour and a half of cardio a day if I'm pre-contest. In the off season, I usually do 40-50 minutes of cardio four to five days a week. I do my first session of cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and my second session after my weight workout in the evening. My cardio consists of the elliptical machine, treadmill and/ stair climber. I will run at the track 1-2 days a week doing sprints or running bleachers. Sometimes I will split up my workout and run bleachers for half of the workout and sprints for the remainder of the workout.
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
The most effective meal plan for me is high protein, moderate fat, and low carb. The closer I get to a competition I may cycle my carbs; to shock my body so it will respond more quickly.
Sample Meal Plan:
3 egg whites & 1 whole egg
3 oz very lean meat ( usually a turkey cutlet)
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 Scoops Beverly International Ultimate Muscle Protein (I make protein pudding)
5 oz lean meat (turkey or extra lean beef)
1/2 Cup brown rice or 4 oz sweet potato
1 Cup steamed vegetables
2 scoops Ultimate Muscle Protein
6 oz very lean meat (turkey or extra lean beef)
2 Cups low carb vegetables
