Warrior Woman!

One of the most incredible women I know, Kerstin Schulze. Accomplished fitness star and trainer, actress seen in many features and commercials. A role model for those who are bullied, feel different or left out. We will be seeing much more of Kerstin and her message of being a better you.

From our photo and video shoot just a few days ago. Make up by the Estee Lauder featured artist, Blanche LeBeau. Hair by @phatarachavis. My assistant for the day, the many talented Shauna Toerner.

Love Training Delts With Ava

Training tip from IFBB Pro Figure Champion Ava Cowan…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Delts- The love of training them, and that I certainly do!

I prefer to explore all angles, hand positions and planes of motion. My goal is to target every single fiber, front to back equally, creating beautifully developed symmetrical shoulders.

In this exercise, the dumbbell front raise on incline bench, targets the anterior delts.

Incline front raises, using a pronated hand position (palms facing the floor) may be alternated with a semi-supinated (palms facing each other) grip.

-Start this exercise by lying supine on an incline bench set to 45 degrees.Â
-With the elbows slightly bent, raise the dumbbells using your shoulders until your arms are parallel to the floor or slightly higher.Â
-Keep a slight bend in the elbow and raise the weight.Â
-Stay in control of the exercise with a tempo of a count of two up and four on the way down. -Lower the weight under control to a dead stop before repeating.

Sets: 2-4
Reps: 6-10
Rest: 90 seconds

Dedication!

It is not easy to get my attention in the world of bodybuilding and fitness. I have seen so very many. But Jessica Holohan sure did because I knew right away she had put in a lot of hard work and dedication! I had not seen her in a long time so when she showed up for her photo shoot I was totally blown away! Fresh off an NPC Bikini Competition I hardly recognized her. Wow! Outstanding!
