NPC Bikini Competition Prep Month 2: Workouts and Meal Ideas

Hi Everyone,
Month 2 (weeks 5-8) of my bikini prep has come and gone! I took the photo you see above on March 1st, when I still had 4 weeks until competition day. As of yesterday I am now 2 weeks away from stepping on stage for my first NPC competition. 

I have compiled the links to all of the workouts that I did for Month 2 of my 12 week preparation, and I also included links to some of my meals.

  1. Hi Melissa, are you just doing those workouts and no gym for your competition? You look astonishing :)

    1. Hi Keistai, I don't even have a gym membership. :) All of the workouts I post on my blog are the actual workouts I do to stay in shape. :)

  2. You look amazing. I cannot wait til you compete. xoxo

  3. You are a beast!! Awesome.. great motivation!

  4. You look amazing. Love the workouts you post!

  5. I was wondering, if on your days off, are you doing cardio still or are you not doing any extra physical activity?

  6. Yeah! What a great blog you have published. I like it and i will share it to others.

  7. So excited to get started in the morning. I have been running low on my gym-mojo and all the variety here is so great! I think it will accompany my triathlon training perfectly. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making these available and free!! So fun and finally something different!

  8. Hi, love your post. I’d think that for a chef, eating frequent meals wouldn’t be an issue. Yes, I understand the concept: Five small meals a day takes the edge off your appetite, evens out blood sugar levels, and keeps your energy steady. But I confess: I don’t always eat this way. Although my fitness trainer encourages me to eat healthy food every few hours, my meals usually look like this: coffee, a bit more coffee, lunch at 3 p.m., dinner at 9 p.m. Then I start over again the next morning.
    Good day! @Nadia Smith

  9. Vandella Costumes is the most preferable shop for all those who want to buy sexy swim suits. The shop is offering more than 900 styles so you will get a chance to select the most suited ones. These sexy bikinis are designed by world famous designer, Kira. Designing suits is not a profession for her, but it is passion. This is the reason these competition suits look so attractive and charming.
