Resistance Workouts

In total, Mariah trains 5-6 times per week. She aims to hit two or three body parts per session. For example; legs and abs, or chest, arms, and shoulders.

Mariah often changes her workouts so that her body never adapts. Sometimes she’ll change her training on a weekly basis. However, generally speaking, she tends to keep her training volume high with 12 or more reps per set. This stimulates blood flow into her muscles which improves the ‘pump’ and nutrient delivery.

Mariah will sometimes do 3-6 reps per set on deadlifts to strengthen the basis of her physique, including core and abs.

Mariah’s Cardio Routine

Mariah’s go-to cardio exercise is the treadmill. She likes how it targets all of her lower body, including glutes. However, when she has time, Mariah likes to run outdoors in the fresh air.

And while she recognizes the importance of cardio, Mariah doesn’t do it often. Instead, she prefers to rely on a clean diet when it comes to fat loss.

Mariah’s diet revolves around slow-acting carbs, good fats, and animal proteins. Here are some of the foods she eats:

  • Carbs: yams, oats, wild rice, fruits, and vegetables
  • Protein: chicken breast, ground beef, egg whites, cottage cheese
  • Fats: avocados, nuts & seeds, and olive oil

In regards to supplements, Mariah’s stack constantly changes depending on her goals. If she’s preparing for a contest, she’ll take multivitamin and mineral formula, along with fish oil to cover any nutritional gaps. But if she doesn’t compete, then Mariah will rely on whole food alone most of the time.
