From Gymnastics To Figure Competitions: New WBFF Pro Alina Andrews

WBFF Pro Alina Andrews Interview

New WBFF Pro Alina Andrews has been involved in sports her entire life, with her talents first taking her to acrobatics.  At an early age she represented her country in the national team, later went on to winning Miss Galaxy Universe, to turning pro in the WBFF; clearly this was the start of something big for this tremendous athlete. figure competitions wbff pro alina andrews

Recently, I had the honor to interview Alina about going pro and what the future holds for this incredible champion.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Alina, your level of fitness is really impressive. So what got you started in acrobatics and fitness?

Alina Andrews: Thank you Marco, I have been involved in the sport since I was 5 years old quickly advancing until I was 12 when I was chosen to compete for my national acrobatics team Belarus.

Bodybuilding Blogger: What motivated you to get into fitness & figure competitions?

Alina Andrews: In 2012 a good friend of mine signed up for the Miami Pro Championship and suggested I do the same. I needed no persuasion and was immediately interested, must have been my winning instinct coming through!

With over 6 months until the competition I was in no rush and my training progression was slow. Then with just 2 months left the reality hit home and I knew it was time to switch it up a gear. I changed my life straight away and trained twice a day every day, focusing on nothing else but winning the competition. I also completely changed my diet analyzing and understanding everything that I put into my mouth.

Once the competition arrived I was in great shape and I took first place in the two categories I entered, Figure and Fitness Gymnastics.

fitness competitions From then on I was hooked and I trained for my next competition, this time learning more and more about nutrition and techniques focused around physical appearance as opposed to performance.

The next competition that came up was Miss Galaxy Universe which took place in Birmingham later that year. Taking first place again in the fitness category it was clear that my training was working and there was no looking back.

Bodybuilding Blogger: It’s amazing to see how much you progressed. As a successful gymnastics champion, fitness model, and WBFF Pro, what do you attribute your success to?

Alina Andrews: This has to be my desire to win and to be the best! I’ve always had it in me; I even love to compete with myself! It doesn’t matter what I am doing I love the challenge and becoming the best just motivates me every day. Without this desire I don’t think anyone can truly be their best.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Excellent! Can you tell us about your training philosophy?

Alina Andrews: Learn to understand your body and learn to push yourself more and more, every day. Overall though you must have fun. Remember why you are doing this; you will be surprised how much motivation it will give you.

Bodybuilding Blogger: So true and great advice, what’s your workout regimen been like?

Alina Andrews: For me cardio is extremely important. I’ve done a lot all my life so my body is used to it, meaning I have to do more and more to keep pushing myself.

Once that is out of the way I get started on working every part of my body. I favor high rep workouts over high weight but that’s just because it works best for me. I like to think that I don’t have any limits and if my trainer tells me to do 100 reps I will do 300 just to prove I can!

Here’s a short video clip with some training and posing:

Bodybuilding Blogger: Nice! With a busy schedule with training, coaching, photo shoots not to mention preparing for competitions, how do you stay on track with your nutrition on and off season?

Alina Andrews: Nutrition is a lifestyle for me so I never think of it as a chore. I also never worry about it taking time to prepare my meals. It doesn’t matter if I’m on or off season, I will always plan ahead and prepare. I think the key for me was learning so much about my body and how it reacts to different food, this has made it great fun and I feel like I am always learning.fitness competitions training

Bodybuilding Blogger: Let’s talk about cardio. What type works best for you and how is it different during off-season compared to pre-contest?

Alina Andrews: For me running is best. I don’t enjoy it and it’s not fun but the rewards are good so I dig deep and keep at it. I think that it’s the shaking when running that helps but whatever the reason it gives me great tone.

I also do a gymnastics session twice a week. This is great for core strength and flexibility but there is also a lot of cardio there. The advantage of this is its actually great fun too, definitely recommended for anyone that hasn’t tried it.

Overall my training split is 2 parts weights to 1 part cardio. Although I keep the intensity high on the weight training so the heart is beating fast and it’s effectively more cardio.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Now that’s a serious training regimen! What was it like earning your WBFF Pro card? Is there an upcoming show you plan to compete in?

wbff pro alina andrews Alina Andrews: It was a great achievement for me and I was filled with joy. I felt like all my hard work had paid off and it gave me great energy to look for my next challenge. The WBFF is a great organization and it feels amazing to be part of their elite group of Pro athletes. The whole show is not only a huge challenge but it is immense fun and I will definitely be back to win the WBFF World Championships in Las Vegas 2013.

Bodybuilding Blogger: If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring figure pro, what would it be?

Alina Andrews: Never give up! This is your life and you CAN do anything. Make your dreams come true, they are yours if you really want them.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Alina, thank you so much for sharing your time with us and for being such an inspiring and motivating athlete.

Bodybuilding Blogger.com wants to personally thank our good friend Alina Andrews for this interview.

IFBB Figure Pro Jessie Hilgenberg Reveals How To Be A Champion

IFBB Figure Pro Jessie Hilgenberg Interview

 

New IFBB Figure Pro Jessie Hilgenberg has been involved in fitness and sports since a very young age. Being fit and living healthy is what she knows and loves. jessie hilgenberg

Recently, I had the honor to interview Jessie about going pro and what the future holds for this amazing athlete and champion.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Jessie, congratulations on earning your IFBB pro card at the 2012 NPC USA’s. What motivated you to compete in figure competition?

Jessie Hilgenberg: Thank you so much Marco! Growing up I played a lot of team and individual sports – I put most of those on hold during college to focus on my advertising and graphic design degree so when I graduated I really wanted to find a sport that allowed me to still work on my athleticism and compete.

In 2008, I went to a local NPC bodybuilding show to watch my boyfriend (now my husband), Alex, compete as a heavyweight bodybuilder and that is where I first saw women competing in the figure division. I knew right then that I wanted to train to compete in figure!

I continued to train hard and had Alex guide me through the diet process. I knew absolutely nothing going in and had no help with posing. I gave it my best and placed second in my height class. From there, I continued researching online and learned as much as I could in order to improve each time I stepped on stage.

Once I learned what diet and training worked best for me, I stuck with that and dedicated a ton of time to my posing and stage presentation – it needed the most help. jessie hilgenberg ifbb pro

Where I live there is not access to any figure pros or anyone that could help me pose for figure, so I relied on YouTube videos and practiced for hours and hours. Each show I improved and studied my posing so that I could fix any weak points. Eventually, it all paid off and I earned my IFBB pro card by winning my class at the 2012 NPC USA’s.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Wow! Talk about determination! What’s your training philosophy?

Jessie Hilgenberg: I stick to traditional philosophies when it comes to lifting – heavy, compound exercises make up the bulk of my training with isolation exercises used to supplement those lifts.

I train the body parts that need to grow the most twice per week and rarely or never train body parts that are already dominant (biceps, triceps, calves, chest and abs). I love my legs to look very balanced so I separate them into 2 days so I can focus on quads/overall legs during one workout and glutes/hamstrings in the second workout.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Nice! What’s your workout regimen like?

Jessie Hilgenberg:

Day 1: Shoulders

Day 2: Legs (quad focus)

Day 3: Rest/yoga

Day 4: Back/shoulders

Day 5: Legs (glutes & hamstrings focus)

Day 6: Rest/yoga

Day 7: Back

Here’s a short promo video:

Bodybuilding Blogger: Awesome video! With a busy schedule with training, coaching, photo shoots, running a successful business not to mention preparing for competitions, how do you stay on track with your nutrition on and off season? What are some of your favorite foods?

Jessie Hilgenberg: It is definitely hard to do! I’ve always operated better in chaos so somehow I make it work. If I ever find myself with free time, I usually end up filling it with something that makes me busy. It makes me nervous to not be doing anything. I’m crazy!

In order to make it all work I have to be very organized, prioritized and structured. This works out perfectly with the fitness competition lifestyle – because it takes organization, prioritization and structure to be a champion. ifbb pro jessie hilgenberg

One of my favorite hobbies is tracking my food in the My Fitness Pal app…I told you – I’m crazy! Even in my off-season, I love knowing exactly the macronutrients that are going into my body every day.

Without the structure, I’d be a disorganized mess. Some of my favorite meals are chicken & oatmeal mixed together, coconut oil & cinnamon in my sweet potatoes, and anything that makes me feel like I’m eating an amazing pasta dish.

I love finding gems like brown rice pad Thai noodles so that I can create a fun pad Thai dish with chicken, hot peppers and peanut butter sauce (heated peanut butter with Bragg’s liquid aminos).

Dang, that sounds good right now!

Bodybuilding Blogger: Tell me about it! Great tips too thank you. What kind of cardio works best for you and how is it different during off-season compared to pre-contest?

Jessie Hilgenberg: For me, this is complicated. My upper body stays lean and gets lean very easily while my lower body takes longer to join the party.

If I spend all my time doing long sessions of steady state cardio, my upper body will get too shredded while I work at bringing in my legs and glutes. So, I focus more on shorter, more intense interval cardio during my contest prep.

I’ll do that about 3-4 times per week along with 1 or 2 steady state sessions on the stepmill or incline elliptical. There’s not much of a change in my off-season except for maybe less sessions.

jessie hilgenberg pro My calories and carbs are much higher in my off-season to support building some more muscle where needed. I like to keep the interval cardio session in year-round because it improves my athleticism and cardiovascular health.

Bodybuilding Blogger: What has been your hardest challenge to overcome either in your personal life or competitive career?

Jessie Hilgenberg: Probably just not having anyone around me that knows more than me about what it takes to be a top figure competitor. I would have loved to have been in a bigger city with access to figure pros and/or qualified competition coaches to help me along the way.

Up until this interview, I have never had a coach so my hardest challenge to overcome was just finding a way to navigate through all of the research I did on my own and figure out what worked best for me through trial and error.

But now, looking back, I believe it is because of that that I am the athlete I am. It was and still is a long process with a lot of learning and experimenting.

Bodybuilding Blogger: You let nothing hold you back. Your journey is very inspiring and motivating! Let’s talk about coaching. As a coach and consultant what is your approach with competitors and non-competitors and what do you see them struggling with the most?

Jessie Hilgenberg: My approach as a coach is to be their mentor and friend throughout the entire process. Like I said above, it is because of my own process that I am the athlete I am today and feel like I have so much to give now.

I didn’t even mean to start coaching – I helped a friend compete in her first show a couple of years ago and it just turned into a full-time job! I just can’t help but spread my love and knowledge for the sport! I only take on a few girls at a time because I take care of my girls the exact same way I take care of my own training – a TON of detail and time.

I go to bed and wake up thinking about their programs – if I could move them into my house and be with them every moment of the process, I would! But I would probably be divorced :). I coach girls all over the country – and even a couple out of the country – and just love that they are getting the best experience possible.

I am completely obsessed with them getting on stage with their physique and posing the best they’ve ever been. I have high expectations of them and it, in turn, gives them high expectations of me. I love witnessing them fall in love with the sport and I am so proud when I see them walk out on stage feeling better and more confident than they ever have felt before! jessie hilgenberg ifbb

What I see them struggle with the most? Every one of them is different. Some are stressed about their work; others have family stress, health concerns, confidence concerns, etc. I love that each one of them is unique and that as a woman and fellow fitness competitor, I can relate to them and help them through it.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Great answer and I can see why you’re so successful! So tell me what’s it like being sponsored by NLA Performance? What are your favorite NLA For Her supplements?

Jessie Hilgenberg: Being sponsored by NLA Performance is incredible! They seeked me out in August of 2012 and our relationship has developed into a great partnership since then. They value me and I stand behind their supplements. I work closely with their women’s line of supplements, NLA For Her, and use every one of the products.

My favorite is probably the pre-workout, Uplift. I’ve always kept my supplements simple and have struggled with finding a pre-workout that doesn’t have heavy stimulants.

Uplift is formulated with women in mind with only mellow, clean stimulants but also includes BCAA’s and light N.O. boosters so I still have the extra blood flow to my muscles during lifting and feel just enough of the extra energy boost and focus that help so much.

Some days I only have one scoop and other days I have two or three – either way, I never get that “cracked out” feeling I get with other pre-workouts and love it. And if you haven’t tried their whey protein powder yet – it’s AMAZING! It has a great amino profile and great, healthy, medium-chain triglyceride fats that I already include in my diet every day.

Did I mention it tastes like a chocolate éclair?? I even use it to make protein pancakes and other yummy treats. Those are just my two favorites. I use their Her Aminos for an energy boost all day and the fat burner, Shred Her, during my contest or photo shoot prep. jessie hilgenberg pro athlete

Bodybuilding Blogger: Now you’re really getting me hungry! If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring figure pro, what would it be?

Jessie Hilgenberg: If you’re looking to start competing, find a coach that has experience in the organization you want to compete in. A lot of people and trainers call themselves a coach, but you get a one-size-fits-all program and often they have never even competed in that organization (or at all).

Do your research! Meet and/or talk with them many times before getting started. You must have a good connection with them because you will go through a lot of different things during the process and you should be able to be open with them.

If possible, spend the extra money for a truly full-service coach that has the credentials to provide you with custom training, nutrition and all the things that come along with competing (proper posing, organization rules/regulations, posing suit selection, etc.).

Bodybuilding Blogger: Great advice! Jessie, thank you so much for sharing your time with us and for being such an inspiration.

IFBB Figure Pro Tanya Etessam Conquers Battle With Anorexia Through Fitness

IFBB Figure Pro Tanya Etessam Interview

With the love and support of her family and a passion for fitness new IFBB Pro Tanya Etessam found a healthier way to control her battle with food and weight. ifbb figure pro Tanya Etessam

With up to 24 million people of all ages and genders suffering from an eating disorder in the U.S. people like Tanya are overcoming and inspiring others to conquer their battles.

Recently, I had the honor to interview Tanya about her wonderful recovery, her passion for fitness and what the future holds for this inspiring athlete.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Tanya, your story is truly amazing and a testament to the power of the human spirit. Thank you for opening up and sharing your battle with anorexia with us. Since your early teens you battled this eating disorder. How did you overcome and continue to conquer it today?

Tanya Etessam: Overcoming anorexia was a very long and slow process; it literally took years! Like anything else, it took a lot of time and persistence to battle the eating disorder. I have a wonderful family who was there to help and support me (and still does), along with a ton of therapy ha-ha.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Congratulations on overcoming and continuing to win this battle. I understand that as a contemporary modern/ballet dancer part of your disorder included over exercising. Can you share with us what you did back then and how your training is different today? ifbb pro tanya etessam

Tanya Etessam: When I was dancing my training consisted of just that… dancing! We would all dance for 5+ hours a day and then have rehearsals or performances. I also had my own extra obsession… abdominal training! I would do a series of 3,000 crunches/sit-ups etc… EVERYDAY.

My training now is 100% different. I focus on weight training and sprinting; my workouts are no more than 1 hr. per day.

Bodybuilding Blogger: So not only did you find a new passion and healthy approach to fitness but I heard you also overloaded on educating yourself too. Can you share what courses you took?

Tanya Etessam: Yes, I LOVE to research, learn new things, and most of all, learn WHY we do or don’t do certain things. To me, it is the worst when people become robots and just believe anything and everything they hear/read without knowing the reason why.

I have a B.S. Degree in Exercise Science & Health Promotions, American College of Sports Medicine Certification, Charles Poliquin Strength & Conditioning Certification, BioSignature Hormonal Body Composition Practitioner, TRX Certification, etc… I am adding more to my list on a consistent basis; you can never know too much!

Bodybuilding Blogger: Fantastic and so true! What motivated you to compete in figure competition?

Tanya Etessam: When I stopped dancing I needed another competitive/ performing outlet. I started working in a gym as a personal trainer and started training with a co-worker of mine. We decided to take on a new challenge (figure competition) and just go for it! We worked great together, trained really hard, learned a lot, and the rest is history. tanya etessam

Bodybuilding Blogger: Congratulations on earning your pro card at the NPC Junior Nationals! How does it feel to be a new IFBB Figure Pro?

Tanya Etessam: Thank you! It was great to get recognized and awarded for all of the hard work; however every competitor puts in their blood, sweat, and tears! Every single one of them should be acknowledged and respected for their dedication and commitment to their bodies.

Ultimately, we live in our own skin… the hard training and clean nutrition makes us stronger and healthier people; the competition aspect is just a bonus.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Well said! As a certified personal trainer at Just Fit Gym what is your approach with clients and what do you see people struggling with the most?

Tanya Etessam: My approach is to treat each client as an individual! Too often, I hear about other trainers giving each of their clients the same “cookie cutter” workouts and the same “cookie cutter” nutrition plans… what is personal about that?

Here is a sample of me doing barbell zercher squats.

Everyone’s body responds and adapts in a different way; that should be recognized.

Most of my clients struggle with fat loss and self-esteem issues. Nothing makes me happier than when a client of mine becomes self-confident and happy in their own skin.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Definitely the right approach. What’s your training philosophy and workout regimen like? tanya etessam ifbb pro

Tanya Etessam: Train smart; don’t be a robot and listen to everything you hear without knowing WHY. Fuel your body, don’t stuff it with garbage, and most importantly LEARN your own body.

Bodybuilding Blogger: As a new IFBB Figure Pro how has life changed for you and what are your future plans?

Tanya Etessam: I respect everyone in the competition world; however becoming an IFBB Pro did not change my life one bit. As I mentioned earlier, competing is a bonus… I train hard and eat nutritiously for ME, not for the competitions.

If you get lost in the competition world you might forget and/or miss out on the other things in life that can really have an impact. My future plans are to continue to live healthy, continue to train hard, and to pursue my own personal business goals… stay tuned 😉 tanya etessam pro

Bodybuilding Blogger: If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring figure pro, what would it be?

Tanya Etessam: Do it for YOURSELF and don’t get caught up or pulled into things you don’t want to do… there are always two sides to every situation; stay true to yourself.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Thank you so much Tanya for sharing your time with us and for being such an inspiration

IFBB Pro Pauline Nordin Reveals How to Discipline Your Dedication

Pauline Nordin Interview

From becoming an IFBB Figure Pro, to being an International top fitness model, to being ExerciseTV’s most butt-busting trainer for the TV program “Biggest Loser” (Nordic version), Pauline Nordin has traveled a long road with many hurdles to become the straight-forward fitness star she is today. Pauline Nordin

Recently, I had the honor to interview Pauline about her training style, her company Fighter Diet™, and what the future holds for this tremendous athlete.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Pauline, you are inspiring and motivating so many people around the world with your straight forward fitness approach. What do you attribute your success to?

Pauline Nordin: Thank you Marco! There are so many fads and confusing fitness fairy tales out there people don’t know what to do, they end up in a catch 22 where it seems they’re doomed and whatever they do they fail.

I don’t sell a dream, I sell real results that come from being dedicated and disciplined as well as having patience. You don’t transform your body and mind over night. I lead by example. That’s what I think brings me continuous success.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Right on! So what motivated you to compete in figure competition?

Pauline Nordin: I wanted to take my body from being average to being exceptional. I set my goal and then followed my plan. It took me three years from that decision to being on stage. I had my mind set on it from my very first workout and didn’t allow myself to slip off or doubt my capabilities.

Bodybuilding Blogger: That’s some serious focus, can you tell us about your training philosophy and no-nonsense approach to fitness?

Pauline Nordin: I believe in the old basics of heavy weight and compound movements. Just plain and simple. Lift more and more weight and do more reps with a given weight. Keep on doing it and you grow muscle. IFBB Pro Pauline Nordin

Bodybuilding Blogger: Stick to the basics, got it! What inspired you to start Fighter Diet™ ?

Pauline Nordin: I always had a big appetite and love food. Unfortunately, it didn’t go well with my fit body ideals. I was grumpy that I couldn’t eat to satisfaction and was sick of tiny portions multiple times per day.

I asked myself how can I eat to feel full, get ripped and maintain it? And that is how I started coming up with my concept; One step at a time.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Love it! Your training is also extremely intense. Got a sample video clip?

Pauline Nordin: Here you go!

Bodybuilding Blogger: Awesome video! What’s your nutrition plan like?

Pauline Nordin: I eat 5-7% of my lean weight in vegetables every day. I eat my meals around my workouts only and eat nothing during the ‘regular hours’. For instance, I do cardio in the morning followed by a big breakfast of oat bran, protein powder and flax. Pauline Nordin Fighter Diet

Then I do not eat until pre workout where I have a protein shake and some bcaas. After my weight training I eat about 65-70% of my calories , starting with some fast carbs from vitargo® or caramel rice cakes, bcaas, whey protein, followed by a long dinner of vegetables and my favorite lean protein, Lifetime Cheese.

Around 10 or 11 pm I have a few ounces of 100% chocolate and greek yogurt. I also have re feeds. It can be once a week or once a month depending on shape and appetite. They are pretty much big carb loads.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Do you take any supplements?

Pauline Nordin: Yes, my basics are FD Greens, BCAAs and fish oil.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Pauline, what has been your hardest challenge to overcome either in your personal life or competitive career?

Pauline Nordin: To get a permanent resident card so I could move to America. I’m from Sweden and applied in 2006 under ‘extraordinary abilities’. I came here on my journalist visa but thankfully got approved and now I’m here for good.

Bodybuilding Blogger: That’s fantastic, congratulations! What do you see people struggling with the most when it comes to training and nutrition and what advice would you give? Pauline Nordin IFBB Pro

Pauline Nordin: Consistency. Every day making the right choices instead of every other day.

My advice is to remember your goals and then decide if your momentary weaknesses and bad choices are helping you reach those goals. If not, you shall not act on them.

Bodybuilding Blogger: If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring figure pro, what would it be?

Pauline Nordin: Have patience and let their transformation take time as well as not rely on your physique but developing your other qualities to take your career far.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Thank you so much Pauline for sharing your time with us and for being such a positive force of motivation.

I want to personally thank my good friend Pauline Nordin for this interview.
