How do the Living Beauty Models look like that?
The most common question I am asked is “I want to look like a sports model but don’t want to compete, how do I get that body?”
Well I am going to tell you the principles we used at Living Beauty to achieve some great results.
In fact Living Beauty girl Bec had winning results placing first at the INBA Natural Bodybuilding competition in the Fitness Model category.
And, third place went to another Living Beauty Leanne.
Congratulations girls for this amazing achievement on Sunday 30th September, 2012!
I have been training girls for many seasons now and just to keep track I have listed their placings below, but how did they do it?
1 – LIFT WEIGHTS – a challenging weights program a minimum of 4 x per week
2 – NOT TOO MUCH CARDIO – it took between 12 – 20 weeks to get in shape
The girls lifted heavy weights and did minimal cardio and then I gradually increased their cardio over time
I also changed their weights program every 4-6 weeks
3 – COMPOSITION NOT WEIGHT LOSS – I planned a program to change the girls body composition – increased lean muscle mass and decreased fat
The scales did not drop too much, because muscle is heavier than fat
4 – EAT A LOT OF FOOD REGULARLY (5 meals a day) – lots of protein and moderate carbohydrates – no sugars and no processed foods
It is clean food and no sugar – for example eggs, chicken, fish, steak and lots of veggies, with carbs including sweet potato, brown rice and oatmeal
3 – NO MAGIC BULLET OR PILLS were used – especially no fat burning pills or stimulants
They were not allowed to take supplements that could be detrimental for long term health – health is a priority
5 – SLEEP – rest is very important for their success – recovery is when muscle grows
When muscle grows a harder muscle forms and this achieves the “toned” look
6 – WATER & VEGGIES eat a truckload of vegetables and drink loads of water
Up to 250grams of Veggies 3-4 per day plus 3-4 litres of water per day
7 – be patient, your body takes time to transform – this is no quick fix starvation plan
Living Beauty has a no gimmick approach, we will never risk our clients health.
And there you have it – the truth of how models look like that!
Here are our results below – they are significant as we are a small boutique business and we provide a very tailored service.
Each girl below worked very hard for her achievement, even if she won or placed simply stepping on stage was an achievement!
