Name: Katie Anne
Most of my workouts are powerlifting focused - with bodybuilding work added in accordingly to bring up my lagging areas for figure.
I have found the most significant results by focusing on compound lifts (for example: squat, bench and deadlift) and challenging my body frequently with the amount of weight I am able to lift.
Working out is truly my time away from it all and love feeling like an athlete every time I am at the gym. I place a huge emphasis on mobility and stretching and enjoy spending a substantial amount of time pre and post workout focusing recovery. It is important to be well-balanced and mobile for best injury prevention.
Although most of my workouts revolve around intense powerlifting and bodybuilding, I believe everyone should find a workout program that they LOVE. Fitness should be empowering and something that adds to your life, rather than detract from it. Find what you love and want to stick to in the long run. The most important factor for results is consistency, not perfection!
