12 Weeks To Your Future Physique: Before & After Pictures - (Part 3)
After 3 months of continuous work, Belinda finally got a break to head for the beach. After finding out about the Flex Online Bikini Model Search, she decided it was time to get serious about her training and diet. Read on to learn how she shed the fat! Why I Got Started. Last October I had been working around the clock for 3 months, I was "skinny fat" and quite unfit.
I finally had a beach holiday and got to wear my bikini again! After seeing the photos I decided it was time to get into shape and in January 08 I started swimming 1 km 6 days per week. Gradually I started to tone up and then in May I set myself the goal of getting into the best shape of my life.
I had heard about the Flex Magazine Bikini Model search online. I knew nothing about bodybuilding or fitness modeling but decided to have a go. How I Did It. I started researching on the Internet and found Bodybuilding. I set up my own profile on BodySpace as a way of tracking my progress and staying motivated. I hired a personal trainer and began my 2-month program.
I guess it was a crash course in fitness and bodybuilding! Without this site I wouldn't have achieved the same results. I found articles on everything I needed: But most of all, the advice and encouragement from the BodySpace members helped me continually stay focused and positive.
My training changed a lot over the 2 months. I started off doing high intensity interval training swimming or elliptical machine , 6 times per week. But this gradually declined as I dropped body fat and my muscles demanded more energy. I found my upper body responded more quickly to the weights so I trained 4 days lower body and 2 days upper body.
Then for the last 2 weeks I switched to lower weights with high repetitions. Each session of weights was different from the last and sometimes included intense circuits. I had a lot to learn, especially about the importance of resting, recovery and having the right diet. In retrospect, during that first month, I would have trained weights every alternate day, done less cardio and eaten more carbohydrates.
For me, the first step in transforming my body was accepting the physique I had to work with. I found photos of fit people with a similar height and body type to help me set realistic goals. I tried to listen to my body and not follow a rigid program. By joining this website I learnt about the world of bodybuilding - I was able to track my progress and I found there were lots of girls out there just like me. Lastly, even though I trained hard I always tried to enjoy myself!
At the end of my 2 months training, my boyfriend said I looked like "a ripped piece of barbed wire. Thank you for your support and good luck with your training goals and dreams!
