Beastly Battle

2015 Fitness Universe Finalist Andrea Baker Johnson shares, "In the 4th grade, an oh-so-dreamy boy told me, although he liked my personality, he liked another girl more than he liked me, because I was too fat.

In that moment, the world whispered to me that it wasn’t okay to like myself. It shouted I wasn’t good enough. It began the warfare that is comparison between myself and others. For the next 15 years, I fought that beastly battle.

Then I declared, 'I will feel whole, wonderful, and worthy one day!'

And the journey of self-development began. I formed powerful friendships with the beautiful women I used to envy. I stopped blaming all men for the mistakes so few made. I moved my body. I flooded my body with nutrition. I spoke kind words to myself. I took responsibility. I stopped looking for approval outside of myself.

Without explanation, without minimization, I stand here today as a woman who roots for herself!"

Loving Yourself

Favorite Stage

Ms. Bikini Universe Pro Kenya Cooper shares,"VOLUME" (increase in muscle mass) MY FAVORITE STAGE ??????
•• Here some tips ???? ••
1??Focus on working strength resistance within your training (from 6 to 15 max reps) this will generate hypertrophy (growth of muscle fibers) ?????
2??Do not be afraid of carbohydrates! It is what will help you to grow muscle and give us the energy to train very strong ????
?? EYE! You have to have a% suitable to you, do not try to eat the same as the "strengthened" because we are ALL DIFFERENT ??????????
3 ? Rest ???? Body and muscle need recovery, do not over train ?????????? If you can sleep after training it is a PLUS ???
4??Do not overdo cardio, remember that your priority now should be the weights or anaerobic exercises ???????
5??Try not to have the same routine for more than 3 or 4 weeks so you do not get used to your body! Remember that leaving the comfort zone generates different stimuli or different results ???"
