Bio:

Age: 20
Height: 5’1
Weight: 102
How many years I have been lifting? 2 years
What got you started? I was at a low point in my life where I was suffering from an eating disorder.  I decided I wanted to focus on bettering myself both physically and mentally.
Current training split? For prep, I usually do a half hour of fasted cardio five days a week.  I will also throw in another half hour post-workout for a couple weeks.  When it comes to training, I go two days on, one day off.  I always try to get in one heavy leg day and one light leg day within a weeks time.  I switch up body parts from single body part to double every three weeks.  Meaning, back is back day for a few weeks and then I will switch it to back and biceps. I don’t have scheduled body parts for certain days.  They usually rotate.  For my off season, my training schedule usually stays the same.  My cardio isn’t as intense but I make sure to get all of my workouts in.

Diet philosophy? For prep, I always carb cycle and accurately measure my food.  For my offseason I will use IIFYM.

Future plans: I am going to continue to compete.  I am planning on competing at Jr. Nationals for 2016.  From now up until then, I will be improving and working on my physique.  I wish to someday compete on a pro level stage.  It is a huge goal of mine and for now I will be doing what I can to hopefully make that happen for me in the future.
