Michelly is a bodybuilding competitor with a history of respectable results. She is also a well-known figure in the fitness community, with fans all around the globe.



Michelly’s Training Methods

When it comes to training legs or back, Michelly Crisfepe Tomaiolo uses the so-called FST-7 method. It’s a technique which includes performing 7 sets, 10-12 reps, with enough load to be able to rest 30 seconds between each set.

After each training session, Michelly does at least 30 minutes of cardio to promote blood flow and increase nutrient absorption into the muscle.

Thick Abdominals

According to Michelly, she always wanted her abdominals to be the highlight of her figure. Thanks to the intense training routine, she accomplished her goal of having chiseled abs.

One of the ways Michelly likes to train is to go for heavy weight and aim at between 8-12 repetitions per set. Usually, Michelly will do 2-3 different exercises for the abs, and up to 4 sets in each of those exercises.





Bulking Methods

Some of the methods that Michelly used to gain mass in her earlier days included eating a lot of unhealthy foods. For Michelly, the whole point of the “bulk” was to gain as much muscle mass as possible, even if that meant gaining excess fat along the way.

Nowadays, Michelly’s dieting methods have changed; she still consumes a significant amount of calories when “bulking”, but she is now eating more healthily and makes sure to always include lots of vegetables with each meal.

What we can learn from Michelly Crisfepe Tomaiolo

If there is something we could learn from Michelly, it’s that you shouldn’t let comments from other people discourage you from your path.

Michelly had to go through several stressful periods in her life, and one of the worst moments was reading disrespectful comments towards her looks on social media. Michelly responded in one of the best ways – she continued training harder than ever and became more successful each day.  Keep working on your goals despite the adversities and you too might turn your dreams into a reality.

As Michelly said; “I always saw each day as a new opportunity and always enjoyed every moment intensely. My life is exactly as I wanted it to be, escaping from all of our society’s traditions. Of course, those who live following all those traditions suffer prejudice and difficult days, but that never stopped me from growing and winning, because the worst thing for me is to be like everyone else, I like to be unique and different.” – Michelly Crisfepe Tomaiolo
