Training

Glutes Focus

Cardio

She also uses the exercise bike whenever she can, saying that it’s an enjoyable way to burn fat and maintain her toned and lean physique.


 

Nutrition

When it comes to dieting, Janaina says that everyone who wants to benefit from working out should eat well, otherwise they are “wasting their time“.  She eats a traditionally Brazilian diet which is rich in beans, tomatoes, tropical fruits, and vegetables – saying there’s no better alternative for obtaining healthy minerals and vitamins.

Oatmeal

  • Two scoops of Belgian chocolate flavor whey
  • Three tablespoons oat flakes
  • Fifty millilitres of almond milk
  • One teaspoon of honey
