I’ve had so many things going on in my life that this prep has literally been one of the easiest for me so far.
Having meals prepped makes my life so much easier and doing my cardio and my lifts are such a welcomed part of my day.
BUT yesterday was the first day I woke up and I looked.... off. I don’t weigh myself often, but I was UP 5 - 6LBS from my check in over the weekend.
In the past, I probably would have freaked out and I definitely told my coach because communication is key, but I knew 100% that it was water weight.
Having these little bumps in the road are beneficial because it makes you take a step back and assess what you are doing for your health. For me, it’s getting enough sleep... SO I made sure to go to bed early and sure enough DOWN 4LBS over night. Still slightly holding on, BUT it goes to show how important it is to manage your stress and to SLEEP!

Wanna try something different in your chest workout?
Give these exercises a try!! Superset both of these 3xFailure.
First exercise is called the plate squeeze. You want to act like your trying to squeeze the plates together. By doing this you are getting high chest activation.
Second exercise is called the dumbbell chest cross. What you want to do is take the dumbbell and take it across your body. You can go heavy if you want. You want to try and pause for maximum contraction, even if it’s for a split second. The heavier that you go the more chest activation you will get. Their are different variations of this exercise but, for this superset I went with heavier weight. Just make sure you don’t compensate the weight for form.
Look what came in the mail today! My official @nasm_fitness certification of certified personal trainer. This really means a lot to me because I set a goal and worked hard to achieve it. When I began my fitness journey years ago, I didn’t have a personal trainer for awhile until I got a competition coach so I learned a lot of things thru researching on my own and thru trial and error. It would have been helpful to have someone show me the ropes, so I made it my mission to help others in their fitness journey if I could. Studying for this certificate helped me to learn about the science of exercise, why it’s important to our health, and what are the best methods. I’ve already put several of the concepts to work and I’m excited to share my knowledge with others! I may not be able to impact hundreds of people, but if I can help someone make a lifestyle change, get stronger, and improve their health, then I know I’m making a difference. And that makes it worth it. 😊💪 Up next is working on earning my Nutrition Specialist certification! 🥗 #knowledgeispower#neverstoplearning#schoolofgreatness#iamaCPT#NASM#CPT
Some girls don't train upper body with the same enthusiasm they use for leg day because they think a muscled upper body makes them look manly. BUT symmetry is important--if you compete, it's the main reason you step on stage and can win. For everyday life, it helps with overall health, mobility, and balance (which is important if you lift, period). Believe it or not, I HAVE to train shoulders at least twice a week--they grow slow.
On the flip side, the same goes for legs. They don't grow easy either.
They do, however, make a nice X shape, and make me look a little bigger than I am 😅
Training questions? I got you! DM me for training and pricing 💪😊
