Training

Glutes Focus

As Janaina works as both a glamour and fitness model, she focuses on creating a toned physique, but doesn’t want to build too much muscle. She loves training her legs in particular, completing squats, leg presses, and lunges to maintain her well-built quadriceps and glutes.

Cardio

In terms of cardio, Janaina believes high intensity interval training is very effective for burning calories and improving her fitness level. Janaina completes multiple sessions per week, seeing it as very useful for cutting before competitions.

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

Healthy Eating

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.

Macros

Janaina also focuses on hitting her daily macro-nutrient needs. She tries to eat a lot of protein and healthy fats such as nuts, but avoids carbohydrates at times, as she doesn’t want to gain any fat. An example of Janaina’s typical breakfast is below:

Oatmeal

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