How did you start out on the planet of sports and fitness?
Ever since I was very young and in every circumstance I have been very passionate about sports, I have led a quite active life on a physical level whether in sports areas or areas related to dance. I received the necessary studies in different genres of dance disciplines and I dedicated myself to it making it my profession. With time I have put it aside a bit, since I could not devote enough time to it because of my career so I became more interested in sports including climbing, diving and fitness competition level, I saw that with a good diet and following a daily training plan, I would achieve the objectives set, apart from this would achieve an improvement in my sports performance and physical quality. I love this sport and in our days I take it as a way of life, striving every day to progress and setting new goals to meet.
What do you think is your greatest achievement so far? The moment you’re most proud of?
No doubt to return to reiterate for the second consecutive year the title of absolute champion of bikini in Spain. I am proud to see how far I have come not only nationally, but also in international tournaments being always and in all circumstances in the Top Three.
What’s your workout routine?
It is divided into 2 stages, one dedicated to muscle development based on high-intensity training aimed at hypertrophy, focusing eminently on the area of legs and buttocks. The other stage is the one of definition, month already before competing, in it I usually dedicate more time to cardio and I make series to many repetitions.
What are your three favorite exercises? For what reason?
Squats, strides and buttocks kick.
What is your preferred cardio training?
Going out for a run freaks me out. If I can do it outdoors about forty-five minutes, if I am not used to using the treadmill.
What’s your diet?
I have 2 stages, one of maintenance focused on muscle development of the areas that I need to thrive allowing me some whim or other. It’s quite varied:
And the pre-competition stage where I take a more controlled and rigorous nutrition low in hydrates.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to get started?
The beginning is the part but hard, but you must never doubt yourself. You must continue to face forward no matter what they say. It’s the possibility of achieving a dream that makes life but interesting. Try to enjoy day by day what you do, the key is not to see it as an obligation but as a personal improvement. It’s all in our psyche, there’s nothing impossible. We just have to work hard and wait for the results to come.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE, FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS AND FIGHT FOR THEM. Undoubtedly my mother has always and in all circumstances made me trust myself.
How do you handle incidents or bad days?
Well, I suppose that bad days always and in all circumstances there are, but when you have a purpose in your head, you draw strength from the inside not to fall, but rather to continue face forward. In the end everything has its reward.
Were you making mistakes when you started training?
If like any hehe, we’ve all needed help sometime. Especially in many exercises where it is essential to have someone giving us support in the technique and proper performance.
It gives three health tips that people can incorporate right now:
- Drink plenty of water, about three liters a day minimum.
- The key is in quantities, it’s not just about eating healthy, but giving your body the energy it needs.
- Spice up your meals, it’s a way to spice up your meals and don’t get monotonous and jaded. Try to try new things.
What would be your best tips for getting in shape and losing those last few pounds?
We have to be ceaseless and have willpower, put an end to it and focus on it. This way it’s going to make it simpler to follow the diet. Perform cardiovascular exercises at least three times a week, and devote a minimum of a couple of days to the weft room to strengthen.
Where does your motivation come from?
I am a very competitive person, always and in all circumstances I have liked to be the best in what I like. Winning a medal makes me feel like I’ve done things right and that’s why I fight and go ahead. Self-improvement is what’s essential.
