My Workout Philosophy View My Full Workout Philosophy
My goal is not only to look good on the outside, but to be an athlete, and most importantly, strong!
My goal is not to just look fit on the outside, but to truly BE fit and STRONG. Therefore, my training reflects those goals. I incorporate Olympic lifts into my training for explosive power, a little powerlifting for strength, as well as bodybuilding work to build muscle and get the fit, athletic, strong look I am going for! I don't train for a competition or to have six pack abs-I am training for my health, my life, and my future!
My Nutrition Philosophy View My Full Nutrition Philosophy
I eat natural, unprocessed foods most of the time, but make sure to allow myself treats here and there!
I eat clean 90% of the time, but I do allow myself to eat my favorite treats throughout the week! Sometimes I track macros, sometimes I don't. I don't restrict any food groups from my diet and make sure to consume a high enough amount of calories to support my workouts, usually 2000-2400. I eat a meal every 3-4 hours, always revolving around a protein source(eggs, turkey, chicken, whey protein). If I'm trying to lean out, I decrease calories slightly and cycle my carbohydrate intake.
My Supplement Philosophy View My Full Supplement Philosophy
I don't believe you have to use supplements, but if your goal is to build muscle and lose fat, they definitely will help you reach your goal
I currently take fish oil, vitamin D, biotin, a mult-vitamin, whey protein and creatine. I try to eat real food most of the time and not rely on supplements; however, I do love my protein shakes to for the extra calories and protein I need to support my goal of building muscle. I am currently using MuscleTech products and love them! I use Phase 8 sustained release protein at night before bed or as a snack between meals, and Nitro Tech post workout, and Amino Build BCAAS during my workouts. Also like using Anabolic Halo protein when I don't want to take a bunch of different products after a workout.
My Motivation Philosophy View My Full Motivation Philosophy
My motivation is to be fit and strong, not only to look good on the outside, but to improve my quality of life now and for my future!
My motivation comes from within, from a desire to be different, not average, and to improve upon myself day by day. Not letting myself get weak, soft and out of shape is all the motivation I need. Feeling confident in my skin, being strong, challenging myself and learning new things while improving on others is what drives me. It's not just about looking good or being as lean as I possibly can, or having 6 pack abs, or doing a figure competition for me-it's about training for my LIFE.
