PQ: Are there certain exercises that women shouldn't do because they may not complement a female’s physique?
VR: When doing biceps, be careful when doing dumbbell curls so that you don't twist the forearm, otherwise, you'll risk having Popeye arms. Use moderate weights to maintain femininity.
PQ: What are some exercises that are good for the legs and butt?
VR: Definitely squats. Forget all the Zumba frenzy. Squats will quicken your metabolism, while also giving you a firm butt and strong legs. You can also use your own body weight to do sumo squats: spread legs slightly wider than shoulders, toes pointed out, posture is as straight as possible, gently come all the way down. Not only will this tighten your inner thighs, it will firm up the buttocks while achieving flexibility. Lunges should be incorporated alternating legs.
PQ: What do you suggest the recommend amount of cardio for a women each week, for health benefits?
VR: Nothing less than 30 mins. every day. Keeping in mind that it takes 15 to 20 minutes to start burning calories.
PQ: If I would like to do a Figure or Bikini competition, how many weeks out do you suggest to start getting ready?
VR: It all depends on what kind of shape you are in, your body fat, how long you've been training. It could take 3 to 6 months. For some, it might take a year.
PQ: In your opinion, what are the best sources of protein?
VR: Fish, egg whites and chicken. I left some plant proteins out because while they may be high in protein, they lack essential amino acids that makes a complete protein.
PQ: Do you do personal one on one training via internet, phone, or in person for general fitness, weight loss, Figure, Physique, Bodybuilding, or Bikini consultations?
VR: I do all that. Since I am in demand internationally, consultation is done via Skype, email, text and phone. I have trained everyone from the couch potato who has never trained before to competitors in fitness competitions. What I do is a blessing because I am able to do more than just physical transformations. By focusing on holistic fitness strategies, my students can achieve balance in their lives.
