Q&A with Megan
1. How do you balance work and family with your training and prep?
Fortunately my work is flexible with starting and finishing times, so I go to work after dropping my kids off at school. Straight from work I go to gym and finish in time to pick the kids up from school. It hasn't always been so easy and I spent a few years dragging my children to gym and putting them into crèche at the gym.
2. What has been your biggest obstacle in your bodybuilding/strongman career so far?
Working around an injury was a big obstacle for me. Not being able to train the way I wanted while I allowed my body to recover is difficult both physically and mentally.
3.What is your ultimate cheat meal?
As I follow Flexible Dieting (IIFYM), I don't have cheat meals. But during my comp prep some of my favourite things to finish my day with were: dark chocolate (In particular Old Gold Rum 'n' Raisin), Vanilla Chai Whey Hot and a Skinny Cow ice cream.
4. Why do you enjoy being a Bulk Nutrients Ambassador?
What I love most about being a Bulk Nutrients ambassador is being a part of a great team and knowing the products are of the highest quality and I can trust them and feel confident recommending them.
