Fitness Model Diet Coach
Fitness model diet coaching and nutrition is complex field these days. That’s why I’ve contacted fitness trainer Samantha Bossert for some helpful hints.
1:What does your daily diet look like and how does it differ from your pre figure contest diet? I love food and I can eat! My everyday diet consists of what you’ll see in a mediterranean diet: fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, seafood, poultry, meat and wine. I love to have a glass of wine each evening and have a weakness for sweets, especially homemade! I stay away from fried food, butter and processed foods most of the time. I have grown accustomed to the “6 small meals a day” thing, so my daily diet always consists of that. Otherwise, my contest prep diet consists of lots of protein and veggies.
2:Describe a typical training week. What do your workouts look like? Do you include a lot of jump training? I love the weight room! I take pride in doing what the guys do, but I put my own spin on it and incorporate tons of plyometrics and explosive movements to keep my heart rate high and burn more calories. I workout 6-7 days a week and they last between 75-90 minutes long. I love circuit training. I usually complete around 4 different circuits that incorporate weighted exercises for the body part that I am training. For example, I will start with 180 degree burpees, then go right into bent-over rows, then jump lunges, then incline bench biceps curls. That is one circuit and I would repeat that 2 more times.
3: Low intensity or high intensity cardio? Do you add both into your workout? When I am not prepping for a show and functioning on minimal carbs, I always do high intensity cardio. I love keeping my heart rate high and when I finish a workout dripping in sweat, I know I have had a great workout. High intensity cardio keeps me focused and is usually for shorter intervals, which is perfect when incorporating it into my weight training routine.
4:You’re sexy and look amazing in tiny bikinis and you should be proud, you’ve worked hard. I’m sure men stare at you. Do you take it as a sign of appreciation for your hard work? I very much take it as a sign of appreciation of my hard work. It’s a huge compliment and very flattering. However, there is a fine line between a simple stare and creepy ogling. So keep it simple and sweet!
