Be Your Own Motivation
Today we're meeting Angelica Enberg at Pro Gym Stockholm. We get to take part in her leg workout where she focuses on "muscle contact" by doing high reps, a lot of squeeze and stretching in the bottom position. She is also using heavy weights to get the most out of her training.
Angelica is a competing fitness athlete and she's been competing in several divisions like Athletic Fitness, Body Fitness (figure) and lately Women's Physique.
"You have to endure pretty rough and brutal diets as a physique athlete."
Why do people choose to put themselves through this? Angelica feels like this is something you do for yourself and something to be proud of at completion.
"You win a lot by fighting battles with yourself."
Angelica haven't competed the past two years and she is currently off-season. However, she's still living the fitness lifestyle, eating nutritious foods, training very hard and focuses on feeling good.
This is a lifestyle I'd like to keep for the rest of my life. I want to be old, strong and look good in 40 or 50 years, and that is my current goal.
Further Angelica wants to be her own motivation in training and she is working towards becoming the best version of herself, which is a goal only she herself can achieve.
What she so far has done, achieved and is able to do now, are results of her hard work with herself and her own training progression and development.
"I want to be my own inspiration."
