What are your fitness goals for 2015?
I mostly want to lose some body fat while maintaining muscle mass. I don’t have any specific weight or body fat goals I would like to reach, I just want to feel and look like a beast!
What is your weekly workout routine?
I do a combination of weight training with different types of cardio about 5-6 days a week. Depending on what muscle group I work on, I vary my intensity of cardio for the day.
What keeps you motivated?
I have a family history of obesity, diabetes, and other life threatening diseases that I am trying to avoid. Plus, I h just love the feeling of a good, sweaty workout. Maybe someday I’ll see an abdominal muscle pop out of my gut.
Do you have a success story to share?
In May of this year, I suffered a back injury that kept me from weight lifting and most forms of exercise. I gained about 20 pounds and lost some of my muscle mass and flexibility. After a couple months of recovery and a slow start back into lifting and exercise in general, I just recently finished a 30 day challenge and have lost the 20 pounds I gained as well as put on some muscle mass and increased flexibility. I feel better than before I injured my back and hope to keep making improvements.
