Lifting Philosophy

Paola’s strength workouts are all about progressive overload. Meaning, she’ll start with the lightest set of dumbbells. Once she’s able to do at least 10 reps, Paola will increase the weight.

After this, she repeats the whole process again, until she reaches the heaviest weight she can lift for 10 reps. After she reaches this point, Paola will then gradually reduce the weight back to her starting set.

She isn’t afraid to lift heavy, because she doesn’t believe in the common belief that gym training makes women bulky. She, in fact, believes that lifting weights is the best way to attain a toned bikini body that many women want.

Some of Paola’s go-to exercises are the fundamentals.

Progressive overload means gradually increasing the stress placed upon the body during your workouts. The entire principle is about continuously increasing the demands on your muscles so that you boost muscle growth, strength and endurance.

Some of Paola’s go-to exercises are the fundamentals. A typical strength training workout for Paolo involves ones such as:

  • Barbell hip thrusts
  • Bench press
  • Barbell squat
  • Leg press
  • Pull-ups
  • Upright row
  • Lunges

All of these moves help to carve out an aesthetic figure.

Paola has tried many meal plans over the course of her career. Out of them all, a diet with a lot of protein, moderate carbs, and some healthy fats gave her the best results.

A high protein diet prevents Paola from losing muscle. As for carbs and fats, they give Paola the energy needed to push through her training sessions.

To Paolo, it’s all about balance. She doesn’t restrict herself too much and likes to enjoy a treat every now and then to maintain motivation levels. Paolo has been seen to enjoy sweet treats like macaroons and great ‘cheat day meals’ like loaded burgers!
