T’was the night before Christmas! My favourite time of year A time to eat, drink, smile and laugh with your family and friends! It’s also a time where we can easily lose motivation for the gym and spend weeks over indulging ‘just because it’s christmas’. –
Here are some tips for surviving this festive season!
1) Portion control – Don’t go all out at Christmas breakfast if you know there is a big lunch and dinner to come. Choose healthier options such as meat and salad/vege and have one serving of dessert for the day.
2) Drink water! This can reduce bloating and also keep you feeling fuller for longer so you avoid aimlessly snacking all day.
3) Keep active – make an effort to go to the gym or if it’s closed try some home workouts to get your heart rate up! Walking is also great to get your digestive system working!
4) Don’t keep your cupboard filled with sweets! Enjoy the chips, chocolates, lollies etc but don’t turn a cheat day into a cheat week! I get them out of my house ASAP so I’m not tempted! –
Don’t stress the small stuff. Enjoy this time with your loved ones. Life’s too short to not be happy!! So eat up, enjoy a wine and get your butt to the gym on Boxing Day #christmasgains

Diet: roughly 1800-2000 cals.
Training: 7x weight sessions. Legs x3, chest, shoulders, back, 1x full body circuit. –
I’m heading to Bali next week so time to get a little bit shredded! Instead of lowering my calories I’m going to add in some cardio! I’ll be doing 2-3x treadmill or bike intervals plus 2x one hr walks!

UPDATE: Its been almost 2 months since my last comp and I’m around 3-4kg up from my stage weight. This week I’m eating around 1900-2000 calories per day which will be increasing to hopefully build me back up to my maintenance before I start prepping again for @wbff_aust in May. Deload week with training so giving my body a strategic break to recover. Less reps and less sets before commencing a new program next week!
Feeling pretty content with my ‘off season’ bod. Finding a balance has been key for me. Eating lots, lifting heavy, loving life.

Current shape 1 month post comp. I don’t really like calling it an off season body…Like when prepping for comp, I still train 6 days per week because I love to, push myself equally hard in every session, and eat a clean healthy diet. I am however less strict now and don?t feel the pressure if I want to go out and socialise over some food/drinks, I just make mindful choices when eating out.
In order to grow you need to eat! My body slowly looks fuller and mid section not as defined/lean. But that’s okay. I want strength and muscle #gains

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Too skinny, too fat, too small, too muscly, too lean – everyone will always have their own personal opinions on what looks good and what doesn’t. It is important to not get caught up in the view and acceptance of others. Be proud of who YOU are. Work towards making YOU happy. @angelrileyphotography

I’ve worked hard to build my booty and legs. Countless hours in the gym and kitchen… training hard and eating right! Still a long way to go but I’m happy with my progress –
I’m just a 5’7, 58kg girl that loves to squat and deadlift. Heavy weights aren’t the enemy: raw image @charliesurianophotographer

POSITIVITY IS EVERYTHING
Every time you get out of bed you make a decision about the day you’re going to have. Either you’re going to have an amazing day, or you’re not. It all comes down to your mindset. If you are positive and your mindset is right, your life will be too! Get rid of negative thoughts and self-doubt. That won?t get you anywhere!
Believe in yourself and you are already half way there. – Lauren Simpson

I love to lift heavy weights and don’t just train for the aesthetics. Being strong is empowering, motivating and rewarding. Girls you shouldn’t be afraid to lift weights for the fear of being bulky or to be stereotyped as “manly” for doing so. If you want a toned shapely body you will have to pick up some weights and start pushing your limits. Set yourself some strength goals to work towards. I find this keeps me motivated to train like a little beast day in day out. There is no better feeling then getting a 1RM of a weight you would never have thought possible to achieve. Set your sights high and keep grinding until you get there. – Lauren Simpson
YOU can be strong and still be feminine #bikinigirlslift

#ABS
How visible your abs are is dictated by your diet, how you train them and genetics. You need to be lean enough around your mid section to reveal your abs and train them hard enough to assist in their growth!
Here are some of my favorite ab exercises:
1)Hanging leg raises
2)Russian twists
3)Weighted crunches
4)Side bend w plate
5)Flutter kicks
6)Plank
Our muscles come in all different shapes and sizes! I don’t have blocky 6 pack abs…my dominant obliques always seem to take over! This pic is from a few weeks out from last comp!
DEDICATION & CONSISTENCY = RESULTS

I hear all the time how girls are scared of lifting weights for the fear of looking ‘bulky’. Fact: my squat 1RM is 117.5kg (259lbs) & deadlift 1RM is 125kg (275.5lbs). I train with weights 6 days a week. No I’m not bulky/manly. Lifting weights will help to tone your body and create shape. Lean muscle burns more calories and will speed up your metabolism. Time to get strong girls – Lauren Simpson
