What’s your most favorite exercise?
Most favorite exercise DEADLIFTS. Unlike most girls believe that Squats gives the glutes, deads Grows my glute. squat tighten my glutes. But Deads with time under tension while the bar is low is King to me.
I dont lift heavy, I hate loosing form and not being able to squeeze or contract. I might not be the strongest girl but shaping is my game.
I recently found the use of iifym calculator that brakes down my calorie in take of protein fats and carbs composition for my goals which is fat loss. I can say that eating following that gave me a better result than what I did “eAting clean” or “healthy balance” I did for years. As soon you gave the exact nutrition your body starts to respond.
I have trained and learned this life style all by myself, through reading, Kind advice of others, My transformation wasn’t a 6 months ordeal it was years of learning. I never paid a cent for PT or a Coach yet. I don’t think its going to be necessary until I stop progressing.
What supplements are your taking?
basic supplements are whey and glutamine and Bcaa. My other extra are Pre workout (love prosupps mr Hyde and dr jekyll) A L-Carnitine and Creatine all taken in pure powder form. some multi vitamin and prebiotics and a green boost drink which I just tried not part of what i usually do.

Start with a good proper pair of shoes, And for my girls invest a good sport bra.
Pick a Body athlete/bikini model or anyone and try to find out how they workout you can try and mimic that.
Progress pictures! Take them a lot and from day one. Side by sides of before and after always gives amazing boost to yourself.
Keep surrounding yourself with health and fitness, add fitness pages to your fb find an athlete to follow on instagram.
You dont need to look like someone else, Your Physique are your Own Your Aesthetics are your Own. Fit can happen at any weight you dont have to be in the 110lbs to look sexy or tight or whatever it was your goal. Keep tweaking where its lacking but never get pressured to look a certain way unless you Compete of course.
