Anonymous said: What is accessory work?
Accessory work is something I do to make the three big lifts stronger. Since the 3 lifts are compound lifts, they require you to engage more body parts and not just the chest, legs, or back. Triceps, lats, traps, shoulders are also needed, as well as other muscles. Accessory work is what I do to make those parts stronger.

YES YOU CAN. It will take time though so do not get discouraged!
Maxine I wanted to reply to your message but it seems that I can only do that with your message attached. Thank you so much for opening up to me, it really means so much to me. Don’t worry, I remember the email you sent to me, you were one of the first. I’m also sure I started following on Instagram you in Instagram but I think you made a new insta. Thanks for the words Maxine, we all gonna make it. :)

And this is why I want to marry Brian Puspos.
Anonymous said: Is cardio bad for liftig? Like from a powerlifting perspective or maybe for energy conservation for lifts. I want to get into lifting, and my idea (based on what I guess I see and hear) is to split cardio days and weight days forworkouts ? I don't see you doing that. You hate cardio. Me too! Also unrelated to that... did your ex relationships inspire your fitness? its how I feel. I want to always get better than my past.
It would probably help my endurance for my volume sets but honestly, I’ve been perfectly fine with no cardio. Some people do it, some don’t, however I’ve never found the need I to do it. Find what works for you! I don’t think my ex was the one that got me to start lifting. My excessive drinking and flings and unhappiness with my body got me to start lifting. Hope all goes well!

Ever since I started weight training, I never found the need to do cardio. The only time I did cardio was to drop a little bit of water weight for my meet and when I was on the boxing club. I don’t think it’s needed. Good luck with everything!
I hate asking for help though I know it’s very needed to help cope with hard times. I took photos of myself to help show me that I’m hot as fuck. I sometimes look at these photos and I am in awe of how much my body has changed. I also am astonished to know that it’s my body. A body like that should come with a confident mind, right? Sometimes. Though I’m very confident in my body, my mind is another thing. It sucks to say this but I still yearn and crave a boyfriend. It’s been 4 years since my ex and I ended things, even after we ended things, we still went back and forth with eachother for about 6 months. My confidence was wrecked after we ended it, weird because when we started dating I didn’t even have any confidence. Instead of working on myself to become stronger, I decided to let others make me confident, ie, boys. My heavy drinking stage and flings with boys went on for a year until I started weight lifting, even after that, I would go back every once in a while to making out with guys. I’m very proud of myself because this is the first year, after my boyfriend and I ended things, that my flings have come to a hault. Barely any this year. I still struggle with that fact that after all this time I have yet to find someone. I get feels a lot because I see how comfortable my friends are with there man and it makes me want to love and be loved. Is that weird? I want to experience love. It’s the only emotion I haven’t experienced. People say it can’t be described and I want to feel that. I know love is nowhere close to easy but seeing that even through hard times, in the end, you are always on cloud 9. One day I’ll be able to say I’m in love. It’s only been a day but I’m happy I met up with Cyzz face because it pulled me out of bed after laying there for 2 1/2 hours. I think I’ll be out of this slump by Monday.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions recently about what program I’m on so here it is. I also talk a little bit about my previous program that I was following for my first meet.
Anonymous said: Hi! I have a question for you if you don't mind :) I really wanna lose weight and I really don't wanna do cardio cus I hate it with a passion. Do you recommend weight training for weight loss? Like would it help? Cus I'm afraid of getting bulky and I hate cardio. I'd appreciate if you answered this. Thank you. (:
LIFTING WEIGHTS WILL NOT MAKING YOU BULKY OR MANLY. Everything they say in magazines is complete bs. When I started weightlifting I was 130 pounds and two years later I’m 130 pounds. I lost the weight I needed to and gained it all back in muscle. I look a lot better than before. Eat good, lift heavy ass weights, and you will get the body you’ve always dreamed of. Bodybuilding.com was something that really helped me as far as exercises and machines go when I first started weightlifting. TONE ISNT A THING, LIFTING WEIGHTS WONT MAKE YOU MANLY, AND EATING BURGERS AND ICE CREAM WONT MAKE YOU FAT. K. I’m done. I do this outta love girl!
"If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who is a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual."
