Blog of the Month: LAURA SHEARER
I am Laura Shearer, a Canadian National Level Bikini competitor. I have been Fitness competing for 2 years now and have completed four shows. I have been an athlete my whole life, I was a CIS All-Canadian athlete in Women’s hockey for Dalhousie, an Equestrian competitor, I also enjoy playing soccer and any other sport I can fit in with my busy schedule, along with training. Fitness competing is something new I decided to try. I had been training for years as an athlete and decided to enter a show based on that training. I love training as an athlete and living a healthy life-style. Being a competitor gives you that extra motivation to train, and keep focused on healthy living style which is something I strive for no matter when and what I am training for. Being 6 months out from my next competition, sometimes its hard to stay focused, but the pre-season workouts are the foundation for success. My schedule is training twice a day, with cardio in the morning, to ensure I get my ½ hr in, and weight training later in the day. My diet is to eat clean year round, but in pre-season I ‘clean it up’ even more, with only having 1 cheat meal a week. This cheat meal, not cheat day, still includes a good source of protein, complex carbs and lots of vegetables. I round out my clean eating with using the Nutrabolic products, Hemodrene for Her as a preworkout energizer, Anabolic State before and after my workouts to minimize muscle soreness and Iso-bolic protein shake, or Fighter food depending on my work tmes, after my workout.
My weekly workout schedule is as follows:
30 minutes of moderate cardio in the mornings to start my day
Mon - quads and calves
Tues – chest and triceps – Hockey at night
Wed - back and biceps
Thurs – cardio
Fri – shoulders – Hockey at night
Sat – Glutes and Hams
Sun - Rest
Right now I am employed by Fitness Leader, doing an exciting project , which is developing an online exercise library. It will be one of the largest online fitness video libraries available on the web. As well, I am doing promotional work for Nutabolics every Monday evening at Supplement King located in Park Lane Mall (next to Goodlife Fitness) in Downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. It is great to be involved with these promos so I can educate customers on the benefits of all of the great Nutrabolics products I use. I also must find time to squeeze in some studying, to finish my Sociology degree at Dalhousie by December. It’s a busy schedule but it keeps me focused. Being prepared is the key to success!
TESTIMONIAL: Adrian Veinot
Tonight I used a full serving of Swollen and 2 serving of Anabolic State.
Energy was just right, focus was sharp and both still going without any jitters, anxiety, restlessness or heart burn.
I think I could 1.5 dose the Swollen for an even better kick. As for pump it is a SOLID and DENSE pump, far different from the superficial smooth, washed and bloated pumps from a NO/pump sup. I can only compare Swollen to one other product I used for the density, fullness, and staying power. Swollen however is MUCH easier to administer (not 3 hours pre WO and 4 hours away from mouth wash usagae due to nitrates bla blah blah lol..) and the caps are half the size. I hope you dont mind the honest review, I will fill you in if things get even better after 2 days of use.
As for Anabolic state it tastes fantastic! Ive never really "feel" bcaa drinks but I can say that this one's taste, smooth light consistancy is the best I've ever had. I also noticed that my water bottle had next to no white drink residue on the nozzel at the end of my workout, more bcaa's in my muscle not down the drain.
