Fitness Models train in a similar way to Bodybuilders but are generally not looking to put on the muscle size of bodybuilders. Their choice to be Fitness Models is often one (but not always) based on genetics and aesthetics and symmetry are far more important than overall muscle mass.
Fitness model training also consists of specific “cutting” seasons where participants prepare for competition. While training volume doesn’t vary much during this time, Fitness Models usually restrict their diet and introduce an aerobic component to their training to reduce body fat as much as possible.
Supplementation is vital for Fitness Models during both their “bulking” and “cutting” phases, however during the “cutting” phase it is perhaps more important.
Bulk Ambassador Maria actively competes as a fitness model. In 2017 she was crowned Australian Champion Fitness Momma at the ICN National Championships and in 2018 she’s taking on the WBFF!
So what supplements does a fitness model take? Maria recommends thermogenic protein blend Thermowhey and carb free Future Whey as protein sources to support lean muscle growth. To shred down for a competition, AM & PM Burner as well as Burner Combination are ideal for fitness models. Maria always uses Acetyl Carnitine as it encourages the body to use fat as fuel and also has cognitive benefits (which is great for models in prep!). Lastly is Glutamine, glutamine has anti-catabolism properties and helps preserve lean muscle
