How did you get started with bodybuilding?

I started competing in fitness shows in 2011 because a friend of mine pushed me into it. I really didn’t know what I was doing, but I have always been a very competitive person and enjoyed it.

The more I competed, the better I got at it, and now I love training more than ever!

Where does your motivation come from?

I love making improvements on my own physique and then sharing it with my girls from The Sports Model Project. I am a firm believer in ‘progress not perfection.’

What workout routine has worked best for you?

A combination of heavy weights and circuit training changed my life! German Volume and split training has also shaped my body like nothing else.

If you had to pick only 3 exercises what would they be and why?

  1. Squats: There is nothing like having a good squat day! I get under the bar and everything just glides! Plus there are so many variations it’s hard to get bored.
  2. Back Extensions: With my toes turned out, is one of my favorite exercises. For years I would get a sore lower back, and it wasn’t until I put this bad boy into my routine that I started to get rid of my back pain.
  3. Hip Thrusts: On a decline bench with a barbell is another great ‘burner’ for my glutes. This year, when I was 9 weeks out from the WBFF World titles, I fractured my foot and could no longer squat, sprint, lunge or put pressure on my foot. This exercise helped me train through it, and I was able to keep my posterior chain and strength levels in check.

What is your diet like?

I am a flexible dieter or IIFYM. I know this is a controversial topic in the industry, but to be honest it has played a huge roll in my recovery from anorexia. Off season, my macros are around 160 grams of protein, 280 grams of carbs and 70 grams of fat. During contest prep my macros are around 170 grams of protein, 140 grams of carbs and 55 grams of fat. I have no restriction on my food, but I must meet my target goals daily.

Daily Diet:

  • Meal 1: 2 Poached Eggs, 2 Slices Soy and Linseed, 1 tablespoon Butter and 1 Skim Cappuccino
  • Meal 2: 1 Scoop Whey, 1 tablespoon Almond Spread, 7 ounces Skim Milk, ½ Banana and Cinnamon
  • Meal 3: 7 ounces Teriyaki Fish, 1 cup Rice, and 3 ½ ounces Mixed Greens
  • Meal 4: 7 ounces Chicken Breast, 1 Apple, Piccolo Latte – Full Cream and Salad
  • Meal 5: 1 Scoop Whey, 1 Apple and Water
  • Meal 6: 6 ounces Rib Eye Steak, 5 ounces Sweet Potato Fries and Salad
  • Meal 7: 1 ounce Chocolate

When trying to cut down do you prefer to use HIIT or just normal cardio?

HIIT for sure! I like a challenge, and I enjoy the short bursts of intensity.
