As Mari works in modeling and bodybuilding, she has a workout routine that changes depending on her goals.

If she’s competing in bodybuilding, Mari will train with heavy weights. This will enable her to build strong and toned muscles.

On the other hand, Mari will use lighter weights and more reps when preparing for a modeling photo shoot. This approach keeps her figure lean and aesthetic.

Some of Mari’s favorite exercises include:

  • Squats
  • Pull-Downs
  • Bent-Over Rows
  • Hanging Leg Raises
  • Leg Press
  • Ab Rollouts
  • Ab Machine Crunches
  • Glute Kickbacks

Attaining Curvy Glutes

To keep her glutes tight and curvy, Mari uses a number of training methods. She likes to isolate her glutes so that other body parts don’t get engaged as much. To achieve this, she uses isolation exercises such as glute kickbacks.

And while squats are no isolation exercise, Mari has found a specific way to do them in order to focus on her glutes. This includes going down slowly, squeezing the glutes as she pushes up. Mari also keeps a wide stance when doing squats; this way, she’s able to target her glutes more.

A nutrition regimen of any fitness athlete is strict. However, Mari takes this to the next level.

Not only does she eat clean, but she also likes to fast occasionally. Fasting is a term for not eating any food for a period of time. In Mari’s case, her fasting window lasts 16 hours. This means she has 8 hours to consume all of her meals.

Although she doesn’t fast every day, Mari has found that on the days when she does it, her metabolism gets ‘fired up’. This helps her burn fat fast, allowing her to get in shape for the contest that much quicker.

What we can learn from Mari Carvalho

Mari Carvalho is a fitness athlete with an enviable work ethic. She not only trains hard, she also eats a strict diet with fasting periods where she doesn’t eat any food.

Doing this consistently, day after day, has seen Mari attain the physique she has today. A lean, toned, and aesthetic look that she keeps year-round.

With the same passion and commitment, you too can sculpt a great body.
