Michaela Aycock

Women's Physique Professional Competitor

Michaela Aycock is a professional Women’s Physique competitor from Florida, USA. Having won her Pro Card at just 19 years of age, she is one of the youngest IFBB WPD Professional competitors in history.

Michaela’s journey all started in 2013, when she joined a local gym for the first time to begin training with weights.  “I really fell in love and found a passion in it and continued making goals for myself and it has just progressed from there,” says Michaela.

Two years after she made her way into fitness, Michaela stepped on the bodybuilding stage for the first time. Impressively, she outshined all of the other contestants at her debut show; taking home 1st place.

Since then, Michaela has achieved one milestone after another; such as winning her second show, the NPC USA Nationals, and entering the IFBB Pro Circuit along the way.

Cycling For Cardio

Michaela says, cardio during contest prep is a must. She usually does 45 minutes of cardio in the morning, and 30 minutes in the evening.

As for the types of cardio Michaela does, she says she prefers doing only one – the stationary bike.

The reason for this is because the stationary bike helps Michaela keep fullness in her legs throughout the preparation; something that is not easy to achieve when she’s on a low carb diet.

Balancing work, school, training, and competitions can be demanding, but Michaela makes no excuses. She finds time in-between her everyday responsibilities to prepare her meals in advance, so she can always stay on top of her diet.

“I think all of us competitors are a little crazy, we love a chase and we love a challenge. Sure we all have moments, some harder than others, but I wouldn’t call any of them either ‘easy’ or ‘hurdles’.”

IFBB pro at 19 years old. I just don’t think that it’s such a good idea for such a young woman to dose so heavily at so young an age. Her masculinization will be profound and almost impossible to reverse.
