Prep Updates 15 weeks

I’m 15 weeks from my show!  UFE new federation for me but I’m excited to do this one!
I’ve been slowly ramping up with a longer, slower cut.  I know I will bring my best package to the stage!

In January 2015, I started  working with my coach, Lisa Nobels from Perfect Posing by Lisa.
I’ve spent a lot more time on posing this year and I’m feeling really good.

Workouts
blog1
Workouts are amped up. Typically, competitors might use the step mill and treadmill daily for cardio. This season, I was interested in seeing how my physique progressed by using other forms of metabolic work.
At 15 weeks, I have
1 plyo, agility day,
1 30 min kick boxing session,
1 cross training style workout and
1 track day.
Whew.. that’s a lot!  Plus I’m still lifting and doing pilates.

I’m walking the line of worry though. Too much cardio makes me squishy and I need to keep the muscle I have!
Treading lightly here. I’m hoping that keeping my food on point will help me cut without doing 2 a days.

Milestones:
I have PR’d on my Box jumps. I’m notw doing the 20 inch box . I hit 22 inches on the Reebok step but I was more terrified of that actual plyo box. This was the first time I was able to do it. My confidence is up and I can really feel it so much differently in my glutes!  I can do about 60 box jumps a session now. Feeling strong.

I also completed 125 straight arm burpees and also 100 pushup burpees. That’s  not accumulative. I can do those in 1 workout. Once I got past the 125 straight arm burpees, I wanted to back up and practice the pushup ones. So that took another week. Those are hard. I need to tighten those up.
Those is a huge milestone for me. I really want to be strong. I’ll continue to push.

What are you working on now?
