To optimize your strength and physique, it is more than just the foods you eat and your training regiment. There are additional factors and one I receive questions on is supplementation. I go in depth on the current supplements I add to my diet and why you might consider them.
I haven’t had a oatmeal creme pie in ages. But, when you realized how bad processed sugar and carbs can be for your body, you improvise. This is not your average oatmeal creme pie… it’s protein packed! See recipe now.
In my 2nd episode of Caroline’s Fit Tips, I share a key element: storage containers and bags.
Life’s too short to not adventure. For five days, I visited Fort Worth and Dallas on a solo vacation. I toured some sights, ate some foods, got my fitspo with Nicole Wilkins and other motivating, fit women, and embraced serendipity.
Last week, I created my own workouts to add some “fun” into my prep. I am a little over one month away from the NPC Jr. USA show in Charleston, South Carolina. Guess who is excited?!?!
My favorite body area to train has been back. I think it is one of the most difficult body areas to train. You definitely need to have a focus with your mind and practice the movements so they target your back. Sometimes, our arms get too involved in back exercises.

I am at a lower body fat percentage right now as I lean down for my show. One thing is for certain: there is a direct correlation with increasing muscle mass and decreasing body fat. Exercise alone will not make you reach your aesthetic or health goals. However, I hope workouts like the one below can help.
I mixed it up by combining back and chest for the following workout. In bold was the movement performed. Any “arrows” show supersets, where there is no rest in between the round. For example, you would complete 10 reps of machine chest press and immediately follow it with 10 pull ups.
This would complete 1 round and you could take a short break before starting the next round.
What do you think? It is challenging, but definitely fun. 🙂
