THROWBACK THURSDAY again?
I should have entitled this picture: "My Life In Contest Tanning"...O_O
I'll call this "A decade in Professional Fitness: from Stage n00b to IFBB pro"....to writing The Booty Bible
As a lifetime natural competitor, my physique was a slowwww progression -- years and years of busting my arse in the gym and engineered "eating to WIN" to get my body to the level it needed to be to go "pro" (2008!) ... now, thankfully, I still eat healthy but have more wiggle room for treats and for CARBS
Now, and because I have the foundation from my competitive past, I don't have a tough time 'maintaining.' But know this: I believe in the human machine and in what our bodies are capable of. I live to push myself to the threshold - hopefully in all of my bizarre rants, posts, tips and pictures, I inspire you to do the same.
Imagine if there was a clock you could buy that ticked down the minutes of your life you had left...would you live your life differently?
Make 'it' count. Whatever 'it' is -
PS: The smell of contest tanning will always trigger stage nostalgia for me LOL
#MakeupTransformation Such incredible. So makeup. Wow. #JeremyMeeksWTF
"Doral ana'diel?"...New #cosplays are a-brewin'... @Warcraft spending Saturday...creatively. #FortheWho? ;)
YES! To the #MERMAID STRETCH! PICTURED: Start to Finish.
My signature stretch lol. #Random #balance
I do this stretch and upper body isometric move at home - at the gym...if I can find a wall, I'm heads up!
It's an advanced move that will challenge your upper body and core strength, as well as your balance.
Interested in learning how to DO, but are scared because you don't have a gymnastic or yoga background? You can start teaching yourself to do this by just creeping your feet up the wall a little bit, holding for a couple beats and then jumping back down. ATTEMPT the full stretch ONLY if you feel confident (and don't have wrist issues). Why? Because at the end of the stretch the "air" leg could carry you over and onto your back = #tragic. O_O Namaste ~AM
Hola! Time for some #WomanCrushWednesday @mistyonpointe -
As a dancer (but nowhere near this woman's level) and a lover of all things dance -- I can't help but be enamored with ABT ballerina and author, Misty Copeland. Talk about not believing in the word "can't!" She was told time and time again that she had the wrong body for ballet (she is only 5'2!), the wrong skin color, the wrong style, the wrong upbringing. She broke through barriers and has defined herself as a superstar in a world where very few attain mainstream recognition. Misty, like all of my #WCWs - embodies my mantra that inner and outer #StrengthIsBeautiful. Do YOU...and the rest will follow. ~AliciaMarieBODY
A quick :24 seconds of why we're loving @Plyojam -- kick butt cardio dance blast class -- it's fun and it gets your heart rate UP. 100% Cardiovascular endurance put to the test in between my strength-training days...
Myself, the weekend ladies and Miss Felicia Day just getting our weekend #CARDIO game in!
