Training & Dedication in Being a Bikini Competitor

Ms. Bikini Universe Pro Alex Paine shares "A lot of people underestimate the training and dedication to nutrition that goes into being a being a bikini competitor. Realistically, we train just like any body builder does, but we focus on different primary muscle groups. I train as many as 6 days per week, and my weekly training program for example, includes up to 3 leg days a week. Let's see some boys try that! The rest of my week is split among all upper body, broken up into shoulders and light chest, arms, back and frequent abs. Depending on my goals and focus dictates the number of reps and sets I shoot for per workout. Commonly I'll perform series of drop sets, super sets and work to increase my weights weekly. Typically I will take one rest day a week as well so I can recover. As for cardio, I typically perform HIIT, which is a great way to increase metabolism, helping me burn more at rest. So as a "bikini builder" I am putting in hours of work every day to build lean muscles, create shape and balance, and build my curves!"

Earning my PRO status in 2018 was a test of my capabilities to juggle (what felt like) a million things at once. What got me through? A specific plan every day that gave me the ability to perform at my very best; and of course my incredible husband. 😍. Set goals and make a plan. Then... FOLLOW THROUGH. If you need any help or advice feel free to reach out! I’m so excited to be back and training for the Fitness Universe Fitness Model competition in 2019 and have my Bikini PRO debut on an International Stage 😉. “

A Lifestyle Change

Figure Universe Pro Catherine Brunswick shares, “It’s that time of the year when people set #health and #fitness resolutions. If you want to improve these aspects of your life, it is important to realize that it requires a lifestyle change. It is not an overnight process. It is a long journey that requires commitment. .
Starting small and changing one behavior at a time can help set you up for success. And remember be kind to yourself- if you eat a cookie or skip a#workout don’t punish yourself for it. No one is perfect. Just get back on track and move on.”
