Interview With The Fitness Model Yanita Yancheva
Age: 28 years old
How Did You Start Health And Fitness?
In my childhood I did rhythmic gymnastics for 7 years, but I came upon fitness only 3-4 years ago.
After my participation in the TV series Survivor Panama (Bulgarian version, 2008) I lost quite some weight for my 54 days of surviving there.
Right after that was the first time when I set foot in a gym.
Last year I was invited again to participate in the series, this time in Survivor Cambodia and I decided to get in the perfect shape in order to win the games in the show.
Can You Tell Us About Your Workout Routine?
I train each muscule group in a different day.
I separate the workouts for back, shoulder, arms and legs. Women should change their understanding that the free weights are only for men.
I personally do more exercises with free weights rather than on the machines.
On the day for back – Monday, the workout begins with pull-ups and ends with deadlift and hyperextension.
Tuesday and Thursday I do HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training.
Wednesday and Friday I train respectively shoulder and arms and Saturday is my leg day when I do intensive super-series with lots of repetitions and lighter weights.
Can You Tell Us About Your Full Diet Routine?
I never miss my breakfast.
I have my meals in equal 3 hours time intervals. Right after workout I take carbohydrates and amino acids.
I don’t miss the so-called “recharging” day once a week. I drink lots of water and eat raw nuts.
It’s not so bad to eat late in the evening but it has to be non-fat or carbohydrate free food like meat and vegetables.
How About Your Supplementation?
What inspires you?
I’am motivated by the results I achieve.
Your body is the only home you have to live in, nurture it, honor it, love it and respect it.
