What does the phrase ďPush HarderĒ mean to you? The more you push
yourself, the harder you work. Keep pushing hard to reach your goals. When
you get to your goal, make another goal. It is very gratifying to get to
your goals. Never stop pushing hard! That is what life is about!
What advice would you give to someone who is just getting started as a serious bodybuilder?
how much time do you have! LOL! I could write a book about this. No, but
seriouslyÖdo your research!! I canít stress this enough. Read books on how
to lift with proper form and technique. Educate yourself on the proper foods
to maximize your results. Hire a trainer that specializes in that area. Talk
with other bodybuilders and fitness professionals. Get different views,
opinions, and fatcs. What works for them, may not work for you. Getting to
your long term goal takes proper planning and time. You will get there. Stay
focused and educate yourself! It is hard work. This is not a lazy
I use Gaspariís Lean and
Fit Stack for Women. It consists of three great products.
first one I use is Cytolean. I take that first thing in the morning with a
full glass of water. This will get me through my morning cardio and curb my
appetite all day. After cardio, I eat breakfast to fuel up.
later in the day when I am ready to lift weights, I will take my favorite
workout product ever, SuperPump250!! You have to get the grape flavor, YUM!
I take it 30-45 minutes before I lift and then hit the weights. I love the
burst of energy and mental focus it gives me to sustain my aggressive
workout. This will definitely make you push harder than you have ever
pushed! If your not in the mood to workout, this will put you back in the
right mind frame!
after my workout, I replenish my body with Gaspariís IntraPro whey protein
powder. My favorite way to eat this protein powder is to put a scoop of
double chocolate in my thick greek yogurt (FAGE is my favorite brand, it is
so thick.). It tastes like a dessert! I look forward to this tasty treat
after my workout. Sometimes that is all I can think about during my
workout!! After your workout, you have a 20-40 minute window of recovery to
rebuild/repair the muscle. I canít think of a better way to have your
protein powder. You have to try it. It is the combination of the that
particular yogurt and Gaspari protein powder that make it delicious! Plus it
is fast acting to repair the muscle!
