Well, well, well… if Monday was looking a bit blue before this, at least now you can focus on a different kind of blue… bikini that is.
How did you get started with bodybuilding?
I got into fitness during college when I began working for a personal training company. With all the necessary tools readily available to me, I jumped at the opportunity to take things to another level and got serious about training. It wasn’t until four years ago that I decided to make the leap into a full-blown lifestyle change and I haven’t looked back since. This new way of healthy living has me enjoying life to the fullest.
Where does your motivation come from?
Staying motivated is one of the hardest components of living a life of fitness. Like most people, I too have “off” days, but I use these times to reflect on my goals and refocus myself. Part of my weekly “to-do” list is to revisit and rewrite goals.
What workout routine has worked best for you?
Varying my workouts from time to time tends to keep my body growing, while still maintaining peak performance levels. If I’m leaning down for a show or shoot, I focus on heavy weight and HIIT style cardio, which for me, works best for fat burning.
If you had to pick only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?
- Squats: They are a great exercise that targets more than one muscle group.
- Shoulder Press: I love the burn a great set of shoulder presses give me, plus strong delts look sexy.
- Pull ups: You can modify your technique and work most of the major muscles of the upper back.
