Back day…🦍

Here are few movements to try at the end of a heavy back workout…


YAAAAASSSSS…leg day was SICK!! Sundays are heavy leg days.

After my heavy exercises, I alternated 4 sets of these 2 movements at the end of my lift. Soooo INTENSE! Just how I like it🙌🏼

Grow wheelzzzz!!!🦵🏼


Bulgarian split squat! There are slight tweaks to this movement which will change the muscle focus.

The version I’m doing here creates more tension on the vastus lateralis (sweep) & much less on the glutes. More knee flexion & less hip hinge

Adjusting forward hip hinge & keeping the knee over the heel knee will target more glutes.

Hack: it is absolutely ok to hold on to something for stability. Form is much more important than anyone’s opinion. Sometimes we have to work with the injuries we’ve sustained. It’s OK!

*I’m still working on my knee flexion of the left knee. It has improved a ton. Very thankful🙏🏼

Check your ego at the door☝🏼



Breathe…just breathe…🧘🏼‍♀️…let the air fill your lungs…& allow life to flow…


I’m happy with my improvement season thus far. Let’s keep it rollin’! 🙌🏼

Feeling good!!


…come brush the walls of my soul…


Side lying hip work on the Cadillac


Mind muscle connection was on point today!

That juicy 🍑 though 🫣🤭

Happy Memorial Day!!🇺🇸


“To be sensual you have to first be able to access dimensions of spiritual depths and understanding within yourself where everything you need to KNOW is revealed.” ~ Lebo Grand

After training legs extremely hard yesterday, it was imperative to recenter myself. When I lift, I channel a very raw and primal aspect of myself. It’s extremely physical.

Pilates brings me back…it centers me…reconnecting the body, mind & soul. Pilates requires vulnerability. This work is quite humbling. The depth of this work is intoxicating!

🙆🏼‍♀️The perfect combination…lifting & Pilates 💯

☯️The balance of masculine & feminine…

🤫The secret to achieving the perfect balance of muscularity & femininity on that IFBB stage.

Soooo much more than meets the eye…


Ohhh the many faces I make during a leg workout…haha

I obviously don’t concern myself with training “pretty”. I get raw…down in it. Yeah baby!!

Gotta go DEEP!!




After training back like a beast last night, this was exactly what I needed this AM…ahhhhhhh


About that Friday night flex…

What am I doing on my Friday night you ask?!

💪🏼Getting another step closer to 1 of my goals🙌🏼

How bad do you want it🫵🏼


Felt like a little 🐸 in


“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

About today’s back workout…🦍

I’ve chewed on the head judges feedback from STL Pro, spoken to my coach & made some assessments myself.

The new plan is in place to make very specific improvements for my 2023 season. I fully intend to accomplish the goals I have set for myself. I love that grind! Diggin’ in…diggin’ deep!


Golf ⛳️…it’s about time to start working on my golf game again! 😉

Lining up my rather large golf goals…

Once I reach my current goals in the IFBB…I’ll be ready to roll into the next challenge…🤫🏌🏼‍♀️

Happy !!

The hybrid…2 variations of the sissy squat on the Pilates reformer. Playing with 2 different angles & tempo…

It’s growing season😉


📕Story time📙

Over the last 24 years of competing (invcluding an 11 year hiatus from the stage), I have sculpted this body into many different shapes & sizes. I’ve been my own muse. It has been the most amazing learning process. I enjoy applying my knowledge to morph into my next project. I enjoy changing my aesthetic & often I unveil new aspects of my interior through each process. I look at it as shedding my old skin…to be reborn into another version of myself.

For those of you that don’t know, I hold several titles in Bodybuilding, Figure & Women’s Physique. I’m nationally ranked in all 3 categories & became an IFBB Pro in Women’s Physique.

“Perhaps what matters is not the human pain or joy at all but, rather, the play of shadow and light on a live body, the harmony of trifles assembled ... in a unique and inimitable way.” ~ Author: Vladimir Nabokov

“Bodybuilding is an art, your body is the canvas, weights are your brush and nutrition is your paint. We all have the ability to turn a self portrait into a masterpiece.” ~ Author: Kai Greene




In order to have a well developed back, you must play with the angles.

A solid back routine should include at least 1 variation of a pull over. Focus on the stretch & work within a safe range for you. The lengthened range will vary for each individual. Those with a lot of mobility in the shoulder girdle will have a larger range.


Leg day! Revamping my entire program from the ground up.

The landmine squat is a new movement for me. As you can see, I’m still working on my form. I need to keep my back more upright while I’m continuing to working on my depth. It’s always a work in progress.

I’m very happy that my range of motion is finally returning post knee surgery. (Knee flexion specifically) It definitely took longer than I anticipated.

However, it was a blessing in disguise. All perceived setbacks really are a blessing. These are opportunities for us to learn & grow.

My mission to get these wheelzzz back has begun…


You know it’s getting intense when the head bob returns…

Remember Who the F*ck You Are!

INTENSE…who me?! 😉

ABSOLUTELY! Just how I like it! 🔥

Keep it flexy.

Be humble but let mother f*ckers KNOW!

If you’re looking for a freaky lean & vascular aesthetic, you’ll have to wait until next year. I’m focused on building for next season. Round and full for the rest of 2022!

Rebuilding…refocusing on that depth. My knee flexion has improved a ton. Yay!! The game is about to change! No matter what the challenge…keep chipping away at it.

Operation: get my wheelz back 😉🙌🏼


Ya gotta work that 🍑 on
…Pilates style 😉


“Life never was intended to be easy. Rather, it is a period of proving and growth. It is interwoven with difficulties, challenges, and burdens. We are immersed in a sea of persistent, worldly pressures that could destroy our happiness. Yet these very forces, if squarely faced, provide opportunity for tremendous personal growth and development. The conquering of adversity produces strength of character, forges self-confidence, engenders self-respect, and assures success in righteous endeavor.”

Happy Mother’s Day!

We have been through so much together. So, many adventures…so many ups and downs over the years. We have had endless exciting adventures.

You are the strongest woman I know! You have taught me so many things, but most of all, you have taught me to be STRONG! You have taught me to work hard & never give up! I ♥️ you more than words could ever express!

Let’s keep living life to the fullest…full throttle with just the right amount of mischief…
