“Would I compete again? Probably not. Because as happy as I am to always be a bikini pro… there are just so many other exciting things to look forward to now.”
Although she trains every muscle group, Annie’s main focus are her glutes and abs. She trains these body parts two times per week.
But she doesn’t do the same exercises every time; instead, changing things up to keep her body progressing.
“I do glutes and abs twice per week, shoulders once per week, arms once per week, and back once per week.”
Annie’s Cardio Routine
Annie Parker loves to do cardio on an empty stomach. She says this is just her personal preference and doesn’t believe it has any additional benefits compared to regular cardio after a meal.
As for the type of cardio Annie does, she switches between HIIT and steady-state sessions.
“The body is very adaptable, so if you’re doing the same thing every day, your body is going to get used to that, and you’re probably going to plateau – so it’s always good to switch it up,” says Annie.

Even though she doesn’t compete anymore, Annie still eats a very clean diet to ensure she stays at a healthy body fat percentage.
She eats unprocessed every day of the week, except Sundays where she’ll have one ‘cheat’ meal. In her words;
“I have soul-food-Sundays which means I eat whatever the hell my soul wants… for one meal… not all day. And the rest of the week, I just keep everything pretty healthy and unprocessed.”
