    Get To Know The iForce Nutrition Team - Epolis13


    Hi Everyone!

    Thanks to Vaughn and the rest of the iForce team for bringing me on board this month. I've been a long-time user and lover of iForce products, and I've been known to do ridiculous amounts of baking with Protean. I'm looking forward to representing iForce Nutrition and to answering some of your questions. I'm also here to learn from others, so I'm interested in hearing what you have to say.Here's a little bit about me:

    Training Background:
    I have played sports all my life and played 2 varsity sports in college. Needless to say, I'm just a little competitive and I got very bored after I "retired." I ran a few half marathons, but I found out that I really despise running. I started lifting heavy and changing my physique, and someone suggested that I try a figure competition. I tried one and I won my class, and I was hooked for a while. I spent the next 2 years competing off and on and really putting on some good, quality muscle. I placed top 5 at a National show, and I was pleased with how I had progressed in the industry. However, I got a little bored with that, too, and I have recently switched over to CrossFit (I know, I know). For me, I treat it like a sport. I actually DON'T do the metcons every day. I focus on strength 5 days a week and work HEAVY on deads, front and back squats, bench press, overhead press, cleans, jerks, and snatches. The clean and jerk is quickly becoming my bread and butter of lifting; I absolutely love it. When I was competing, I was lifting for a look and not really for performance, and I think that's why I like my programming so much. I've been hitting PRs left and right, and it's very fulfilling. And, don't worry, I still can't kip my pull-ups. In all seriousness, it's all about the heavy lifting for me. It's awesome to feel strong.

    I'm a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist, as well.

    Name: Beth
    Current Age: 30
    Height: 5'6
    Current Weight: 143
    Occupation: Project Manager

    Training Goal(s): Increase 1RM on all major lifts
    Fix form issues on clean and snatch

    Typical Training Schedule:
    Mon: HBBS + kettlebell accessory work (swings, snatches, 1-arm OH squat, SDL high-pulls, turkish get-ups)
    Tues: Clean and Jerk + double under tabatas
    Weds: Front Squats + clean pulls + snatch balance
    Thurs: Rest
    Fri: Deadlifts + Press (either push or strict - I vary it) + snatch pulls
    Sat: Bench + light weight cleans from jerk boxes + push jerks
    Sun: Rest
    It may look like a lot, but the accessory work is usually very light weight and form-focused.
