International Fitness Model Sophie Guidolin Talks With

How did you get started in bodybuilding/fitness?

After gaining 28 kilos with my pregnancy I knew that i needed to change my life and get fit in order to be a good mum and role model for my boys. I started going to the gym and loved it as it was my first ‘me’ time in years. I was hooked from then!

What is your favorite body part to train?

Do you do any other types of training besides weight training?

I focus on high power movements to burn additional calories, heavy squats, deadlifts etc 🙂

Can you give us a sample of your routine?

A typical leg day would look alot like this: Warm up: walking lunges (50m) Squats x 6 sets Leg curls x 4 sets- 3 working sets, 1 warm up Stiff leg deadlifts x 6 sets Kick backs x 4 sets Weighted walking lunges.
