Beni:

Just wondering what's on tap for you (training/shoots/contest wise) for 2012?


Have you settled on whether it will be Bodybuilding or Physique?


Will you be a) using a trainer and/or b) posting a Training/Diet log somewhere?


(LOVE 'ya, woman!)


Thanks!

Looks at those quads! I don't think the shape could be any better. And calves to match. Booty looks fine, doesn't look that big, looks in proportion to the rest of your lower body. :)

Do you really want a tiny butt with big quads? Wouldn't that look odd. No woman is happy with their butt in the off season, and very few are happy with it in the on season. :p

Here are some posing pics taken yesterday at the gym with my son, Please excuse the quality of pics ...there not that great due to the fact that my son was more interested in taking pics of himself rather than me.

Anyways my son trains with me about 75% of the time now. Use to be more often but since he now has a JOB its not as much as he would like too. He started training with me about a year ago and was a skinny little emo wearing tight skinny jeans with long shaggy hair cut ( pre justin beaver haircut before justin chopped off his mane :rolleyes:)

My son started to come with me to the gym cause I guess he was wanting more mommy time with me plus the fact he saw that his broski was getting lean and muscular so he wanted in the fit club:) Anyways I present to you my son Cesare...pronounced Ch -eh -za -ray. He is my youngest and a handful and when ya put him and my eldest son together at the gym...its all fun and games with them.

I know your gonna look beautiful Tammy. You had such a beautiful physique when ya turned pro....just soooo adorable. Ya still do just a bit fuller

Its funny cause when ya get to that pro level you almost feel like ya have to put on massive amounts of size to be competitive with ladies who out weigh us by 25+ pounds of mass and that is contest weight can ya imagine off season :o but then we cant really do figure cause we out mass them as tiny as we are....all I now is this is some crazy ass pressure to fit in somewhere and maybe this might be it :rolleyes:

It is to bad many women feel pressure to add size after turning pro. To me, if you turned pro, you already have the size, so just concentrate on the details. Adding size hasn't helped pro FBB become popular.

YEP, That show was very controversial...it was a hard show and a show that I will never forget due to all the back and forth of who should have won and how the judging was not consistent with all the divisions. For the first few months I felt bad about the win but all I could do was just prove myself worthy of the win from there on.

Interesting, maybe she just gave up after that show. That is to bad, as she was so close. The judges got it right though. You proved it to everyone with your 6th place at the 2009 Atlantic City which was a huge show for Pro Women's Bodybuilding (over 20 competitors). How many women your size place so high in a line up so big? It doesn't happen often.

Not sure if she gave up but I do remember reading a article or interview someone did with her how disappointed she was and how she thought she should have won but one thing for sure I did feel bad cause I felt like I took something away from all of them or at least thats how I felt at the time.

Who knows maybe she moved on or maybe just maybe she will make a come back with the WPD....ya never know :awesome: but if she does come back I wish her the best.

Lol about that Atlantic show thats another one where some were not to happy with my placing either. CANT PLEASE EVERYONE :D

So yesterday I ended up grilling 15 pounds of lean ground turkey patties and 12 pounds of chicken breast not to mention the day before I oven baked 2 huge turkey breast and my boys had the nerve to say "What no steaks"...ughhh:banghead: all this food and they want steak....this food is about a week and half worth...most of the time :p.

I swear my boys eat a ton and when ya add myself into the mix, it almost seem like I live at Sam's buying chicken, steaks, ground turkey and turkey breast.

Anyways I had the pleasure of having both my sons work out with me on Tuesday since they were both off from work. We did legs and calves. Did a combination of moderately heavy and light weights and they both thought ehh, this is gonna be a breeze little did they know that the rest stage was 30 seconds and go :p....lol at them cause the next day they could hardly walk, po babies. That will teach them to call my leg workout easy:D.

Today I will be doing legs again(hammies)and I asked my eldest to go with me and he politely declined. The youngest is still thinking about it and will get back to me later too see if he is joining me or opting out:).

Will let ya all know how it turns out.

:p Why WPD...at this point, why not? I certainly dont have nothing to lose trying it. I just would like too see if its a better fit for me or not.

Being a fbb is wonderful and just because am trying this other division out does not mean am leaving fbb entirely...its still fbb just a smaller scaled version of fbb, well at least that is how I view it.

I would love too still be able to compete in fbb on a pro stage but you know as well as I do that am way too small to be a real threat on the pro stage as a fbb and too big too be competitive in figure. So where does it leave me? in the middle thats where and me giving WPD a try will determine whether or not it is a division where I can be competitive in. After all thats the name of the game to COMPETE :D not just participate :p.



Why Physique ?

lil mama
12-17-2011, 09:20 PM
p.s.

If I so happen to fall in the bottom of a line up on stage well then I guess I will always be a tweener not really fitting in any division and so be it. At least I will know that I tried and wont have any regrets of what if's :kiss:

I think you look awesome but i can't wait to see how they judge the pro level of physique because who they gave pro cards to so far are alot "softer" and seems that they had said they want a more muscular figure girl and not a downsized fbb. The maturity you have in your muscle bellies may be hard to make smaller with out completely stopping weight training and just doing cardio to burn off muscle. Good luck and I look forward to watching the girls that are the desired look in the pro's. I hope it is the look you have that would make me feel good about this new division.

lil mama
12-19-2011, 02:41 AM
I get what your saying Lisa about the whole process of getting there and the desired look the panel wants and they NOT WANTING a downsized fbb. But again I have to ask myself then WHERE do I FIT IN?

Once again am way too small to be a real threat on the pro stage as a fbb and too big too be competitive in figure. So where does it leave me? IN THE MIDDLE. So perhaps I wont fit into the PD, What do I do then? Stop competing all together...turn to drugs to attempt to get bigger and cont with fbb, stop wt training all together and just do cardio to loose thickness (density of muscle) to fit into figure or PD.

So what are women like myself to do? just stop doing this all together or keep trying to adapt to what they want? I for sure tried to adapt...THEY said ya need more size and I added more size, just not the size they were looking for at a pro level and I as sure wasnt gonna take anything to grow. I tried growing by eating alot more and lifting heavier...so I grew a lil bit but thats what my body was able to achieve no more no less and at 4 feet 11 inches this lil mama cant handle a lot of size to my tiny frame and ya know what else my lil frame cant handle being that small either without looking like skeletor :) so here are pics

FIRST ONE Beni at 102 lbs

SECOND ONE Beni at 113 lbs

Third ONE Beni at 116 lbs

Looking at all the photos, WHAT IS THE PERFECT LOOK?....there isnt one ;) because they are all perfect for my body my size my frame.( not being conceited just staying to my body has adapted a few sizes and to me they are all perfect at that time of competition to me and what I FELT comfortable bringing to the show)

So if theres anything that I have learned is that ya cant please the panel all the time and I did my best to grow and add size cause that is what I kept hearing back from the panel and now I have to take away cause the panel does not want a downsized fbb look but a more muscular figure look. Well when I was a figure competitor my look was not up to par... was told ya need more size and when I did get the size after a few years into it then my more muscular look was no longer wanted and was told switch to fbb. then am told ah perfect this is the look we want to represent fbb and wa lah pro card awarded but then I get to the pro ranks and they say Ohhh to small ya need more size. So once again I try to adapt and add size but again only what my body wants to produce on its own not what pharmaceuticals can give me and no I admit it wasnt much but the lil I did grow was solid gain for a small frame and now when I step on stage at a pro show am always one of the smallest where women out weigh me by 20lbs of solid mass.

My point is that no matter what I do or try I might never fit in and that is ok but am gonna try either way and if the panel does not approve of what I bring at least I know I tried and will always know in my heart I TRIED.

I think you look awesome but i can't wait to see how they judge the pro level of physique because who they gave pro cards to so far are alot "softer" and seems that they had said they want a more muscular figure girl and not a downsized fbb. The maturity you have in your muscle bellies may be hard to make smaller with out completely stopping weight training and just doing cardio to burn off muscle. Good luck and I look forward to watching the girls that are the desired look in the pro's. I hope it is the look you have that would make me feel good about this new division.

First off, no homo, I'm totally not into women or anything, but yeah Beni I have a total girl crush, you bring out my inner schmoe! Love lookin at your pics! :rofl: :respect:

And second, major props for just being you and doing what you do! You can't please all of the people all of the time, but this journey and competing isn't all about the trophy. As long as you do what you do because it challenges you to bring your best, that's all that matters. At the end of the day, the look of the division (every division) is ever evolving, what's in one year will be out the next, and furthermore being consistent in being 100% who you are is what's respected by the masses, whether the judges want that look or not. I hope the day never comes when you decide not to compete just because you "don't fit in", throw in the towel because YOU'RE ready to, forget the rest of the bull$h!t.

I love just everything about you - beautiful & balanced physique, great gal, so much positivity and such a great sense of humor. I'm so happy I got to meet you at the Dallas Europa, wow, its been a year and a half ago! - that was a great weekend!

I'm also interested to see how they judge the pro level, but I really hope you set the bar!

Thanks Foxy and Sassy for stopping by and for the encouragement you ladies are showing me...ya all it means a lot too me, so many thanks :kiss:

Posting a couple of vids on a shoulder wkout my son and I did today or shall I say Sunday :). We did several rotator cuff warm ups and some light wt over head presses before we began with cable.

After we warmed up we got started with 4 set of cable front raises then 3 sets of side laterals and then we went on to presses which ya will see on vids. recorded one of each set but in total we did 3 with the bar and then 3 with plates on bar.

Hola posting vids of yesterdays wk.out.
It was chest day and the boys and I started of with 4 sets of 10 rep warms ups of freemotion cable chest press s/s with chest dips. After that we started our sets which were dumb bell chest press, push ups and bent over flys..one after the other then we moved onto smith barbell presses ending it with free motion cable fly using my ISOLATOR Cuffs. We also did triceps, 3 sets of push downs, overhead tricep extensions and wt. dips for tris...I just did body weight :)

Works better if ya have a smaller (meaning a narrow) cage to rack the bar in.That way you can add more plates :o but I have to work with whats at the gym and just about everything needs to get benified to fit me.

I have a trap bar. I never thought to do shoulder presses with it. Stealing.

The push thingy is actually a balance board and it somewhat makes push up harder cause it makes you use your core to balance and keep it steady or you'll wibble wobble all over...good for squats as well but lots of folks get fancy with it and do all sorts of circus acts on it...foget that :angel: I just keep it simple:)

Questions, Beni: (You know me!)

How much of those early years was a lot of "trail and error" or "stopping and starting" with both your nutrition and training?

At what age would you say you had finally "got it"; and your nutrition and training really took off?

Did you ever consistently utilize a trainer?

How much of those early years was a lot of "trail and error" or "stopping and starting" with both your nutrition and training?

Almost all of it and still is "trail and error" cause for me its a learning process and will always be one. There is not set program for me...always learning and always changing is key to being successful, at least thats how I see it;).

Did you ever consistently utilize a trainer?

No, when I started it was on my own at home with small dumbells, jump rope and a broomstick for lunges and squats and of course the open country roads to do my running:) But I will say at the very beginning of my training after 8 months training at home with the above and losing 24 lbs on my own by changing my eating habits and working out, I then went on to hire a trainer at our local small town gym and used the trainer to help me out with proper execution of basic exercise movements like bench, squats, arms with heavier wts to better my body

Major injuries?

Yes, when I was prepping for Atlantic City I dislocated my left elbow about 7-6 wks out till show. Went next door to chiropractor and he popped elbow back into place but when he did I heard a felt a pull in bicep that then caused swelling to lower part of bicep. All I could do was ice it, rest it and suck it up. I had a show to do and had paid my pro renewal and could only do one show that year...hell I can only do one show a year still too this day...not complaining cause thats just how it is...ya know family needs first then somewhere along the line of importance comes my shows :D


Do you take longer to recuperate than in the past?

LOL, silly it takes me long to recoup back in my earlier yrs and still does. I try to avoid over training at all cost.. If throughout the work out my body is tired but not my will or determination and I start thinking one more...do it do it!!! then I have to bitch slap myself to reality and STOP. Injury is sooo not worth it and neither is doing more than what your body is able to give out at that very moment .

I want to wish you luck for your next show. You look amazing as always (because your a Pro and it's what you do- no half assing it for you!).

I'll be joining you this upcoming year in the WPD. I could be a threat in fbb but not without using the drugs to put an extra 10lbs on me and I have no desire to go down that road. So happy to see you competing where ever it may be because your a great representation of a female athlete in all facets.

I love my brother a lot and I know he only wants the best for his sister. He is the only male in our group of four children my mom had. So you can just imagine how protective he was and still is of his sisters. He will be leaving soon overseas again. He just got word that his papers have cleared and will be leaving soon.

But he is proud of me and tells me all the time just do your best cause no one can take your hard work and effort from you and also not to take enhancements cause if ya cant achieve it alone with hard work then ya didnt really earn it..... he is old school and he does not believe in using anything so I take his advise to heart after all he managed to go all the way to the Olympic trials in boxing all in his own hard work and persistence...never giving up to make it there.

Hello, posting yesterdays wk.out which was chest & Tris.
Did 3 sets of all chest press movements and 2 sets of triceps push downs...only 2 because with the chest press movements you incorporate alot of triceps already so my triceps were on fire :D. On the Hammer machine 3 sets were done for incline and reg press..kept it light since I cant go too heavy and as you can tell by my facial expressions am not too thrilled.

Besides not being thrilled about that, I wasnt feeling to well. Was sick Christmas night...got the chills and a fever with aches and pain all over and I didnt sleep but a few hours so I was just not feeling well and the same thing happened last night so I have been up since 4 am..ughhhh but at least I feel a lil better as of now:o.

Yep, I was happy that I at least got a lil footage for ya all. I just hate asking for help and have others go out of their way...lol, the gym was practically empty Christmas eve so it was mighty generous of the person who did help me out.

I did rest on Christmas Day, only cause the gym was closed besides got up early anyways to cook/bake for family and relatives. None of my sisters cook and they certainly dont help clean up so its all up too me :banghead: it's either me do it or we wont have a Christmas dinner.

Do I like working out at night best? Yes, much easier and less people at the gym and less folks stopping and asking me questions, plus my boys can go most of the time when I go to the gym late at night. That is if they are not working night shifts.

Glad someone helped you film part of your workout. You didn't take any rest. Do you like working out at night best? :)

Hello, posting yesterdays wk.out which was chest & Tris.
Did 3 sets of all chest press movements and 2 sets of triceps push downs...only 2 because with the chest press movements you incorporate alot of triceps already so my triceps were on fire :D. On the Hammer machine 3 sets were done for incline and reg press..kept it light since I cant go too heavy and as you can tell by my facial expressions am not too thrilled.

Besides not being thrilled about that, I wasnt feeling to well. Was sick Christmas night...got the chills and a fever with aches and pain all over and I didnt sleep but a few hours so I was just not feeling well and the same thing happened last night so I have been up since 4 am..ughhhh but at least I feel a lil better as of now:o.


Nice poses champ! I hope you got some much needed sleep last night. :)

I did manage to sleep a lil bit yesterday (3 hrs). I was busy catching up with the laundry but mostly grilling my meats(chicken breast, ground turkey, steaks) lots of it for me and the boys. Gonna have to talk to them about that. They out eat me and I need to get them to start contributing to the buying of the meats. I wouldnt mind it so much if they ate like regular people but DAMN they eat like they are starving....which they probably are since they are growing like no tomorrow :D they do workout hard,play hard and work hard :respect:.

And about the winter here, we have it too just not as cold as you all up north. :p

Changes will be no more high and low carb day and more of a consistent flow of carbs throughout the day for a couple of weeks then it will change again.

Oh and my grocery bill between me and the boys including snack for them is a lot. Figure 2 times a week to store at about 150 every time twice a week, well it adds up. Will sure be glad when they are completely grown up and out on their own.

Decided to start cardio sessions this coming week and the diet will change as well as the wk.out session will now be more focused in using mostly bodywt for training and a lil less emphasis on the iron wts.;) ....anxious to see how that will go but I think everything will work out fine....certainly cant hurt:D

I am interested but if you have other candidates in mind please dont hesitate to do what is best for you and your new start up company, cause I certainly do not want to hold you back waiting on me. Do what you have to do to get that position filled and company going and best of Luck Jim:waving:

I know .. and I am legit the company I am starting is .. and I have alot of friends in the industry that can back me.. and most of all i would know this would work as some sort of scam lol ... all i am doing is an interview process creative thinking, script writing, mock show, and formal interview! That's it no photos or anything I dont need them.. and my company will fly in the top 3 candidates for the position to do a final mock show in studios at out offices in dallas. and i promise if i am able to talk to Beni she will know i am legit I can answer any question. =)

Highly doubtful she recognized this fool :p but it is cool that a SC member was at the same gym as myself....once in a lifetime moment since SA is not the happening place for the type of industry we are in.

Yes, she did film the last set of it and it was funny cause my legs were tired and I did not want to look like a worn out tired sissy so I did what any texan woman would do!!! I WOMANED UP AND GRABBED THE BULL BY THE HORNS :rofl:


How cool is that? And she helped you film your last set! Did she recognize you too? Finally you meet someone else who is a member of SC at the gym. Adela hasn't posted in over a year, but she is around. :)

My sons have seen her do her routine online when I watch them but did not recognize her off the bat, BUT they sure as hell know who Phil, Ronnie and Jay are :D....boys!!

That circuit your referring to are just small lil plyo squats that I do to burn quads up. Use to do them when I did figure back in the day but with smaller rings like the ones kids used too throw into the pool and dive into get, but those rings have since disappeared awhile back but if ya ask me those rings probably had a untimely destruction by my boys.

Oh, well thats my body telling me to take it easy:) but it didnt help stayin up till 130 ironing. Anyways needed to check in on K's journal and all of SC's threads first :p so now am off to the gym to do my cardio and hopefully there will not be too many folks in there.

Hey Chief :) just got back about 30 minutes ago had to run some errands. Forgot to get salt, chocolate almonds, brown rice, and a case of eggs. Needless to say NEVER GO SHOPPING on an EMPTY STOMACH :o

Well my stomach wasn't quite that empty. I did have a protein shake after my cardio but that aint shit when your hungry anyways I had to run these errands cause I hate going to the store when its crowded in fact I think I just dislike being around anywhere where there are way to many folks around me.

My hubby says cause am a loner but know lots of folks and have many acquaintanceship but prefer to stay distant he also says that I am content just being by myself and says all of you are the same way (meaning my siblings) ehhh, at least I have my forum to keep me company:D

lol, ya all guess who this lovely lady is. If ya guessed Adela G then you are correct.

She was at the gym here is SA, Tx and it was a real treat for me and a total surprise to see her here :p. I was working out in the aerobic room and saw this lil thing practicing a routine and I didnt really pay too much attention cause I was focused of my own shit but like usual was having a hard time filming and was about to do my last set in there when I noticed she was sitting down on floor and was not busy at the moment so I went over to go ask if she could do me the favor and film my last set and she replied sure. Then she looked up and I thought this gal looks familiar so I asked "whats your name and she said ADELA" :rofl: I was like Adela Garcia Ms.O and she smiled and said yes :rofl: Well that just made my night an awesome night :p

Anyways here is a pic of the lovely Ms. Fitness O with lil ole me :)

Great idea! I'm not sure that I believe you don't wear ankle weights outside of working out though! I heard that you wear them at all times of the day and night, and while shopping at Wallmart! :sherlock: :D

Only 4' 11" and 120 pounds, but that camera angle made you look huge! :p

Thanks for the shout out B. :hug: Some music interrupted part of what you had to say while you were thanking peeps, so I couldn't hear all of what you were saying.

YEP, That show was very controversial...it was a hard show and a show that I will never forget due to all the back and forth of who should have won and how the judging was not consistent with all the divisions. For the first few months I felt bad about the win but all I could do was just prove myself worthy of the win from there on.

I was a LW at 2007 Nationals. When you were on stage Jeremy turned to Chases and said "There's your LW winner" He had no doubt :awesome:

Suzanne
01-16-2012, 04:41 PM
I get what your saying Lisa about the whole process of getting there and the desired look the panel wants and they NOT WANTING a downsized fbb. But again I have to ask myself then WHERE do I FIT IN?

Once again am way too small to be a real threat on the pro stage as a fbb and too big too be competitive in figure. So where does it leave me? IN THE MIDDLE. So perhaps I wont fit into the PD, What do I do then? Stop competing all together...turn to drugs to attempt to get bigger and cont with fbb, stop wt training all together and just do cardio to loose thickness (density of muscle) to fit into figure or PD.

So what are women like myself to do? just stop doing this all together or keep trying to adapt to what they want? I for sure tried to adapt...THEY said ya need more size and I added more size, just not the size they were looking for at a pro level and I as sure wasnt gonna take anything to grow. I tried growing by eating alot more and lifting heavier...so I grew a lil bit but thats what my body was able to achieve no more no less and at 4 feet 11 inches this lil mama cant handle a lot of size to my tiny frame and ya know what else my lil frame cant handle being that small either without looking like skeletor :) so here are pics

FIRST ONE Beni at 102 lbs

SECOND ONE Beni at 113 lbs

Third ONE Beni at 116 lbs

Looking at all the photos, WHAT IS THE PERFECT LOOK?....there isnt one ;) because they are all perfect for my body my size my frame.( not being conceited just staying to my body has adapted a few sizes and to me they are all perfect at that time of competition to me and what I FELT comfortable bringing to the show)

So if theres anything that I have learned is that ya cant please the panel all the time and I did my best to grow and add size cause that is what I kept hearing back from the panel and now I have to take away cause the panel does not want a downsized fbb look but a more muscular figure look. Well when I was a figure competitor my look was not up to par... was told ya need more size and when I did get the size after a few years into it then my more muscular look was no longer wanted and was told switch to fbb. then am told ah perfect this is the look we want to represent fbb and wa lah pro card awarded but then I get to the pro ranks and they say Ohhh to small ya need more size. So once again I try to adapt and add size but again only what my body wants to produce on its own not what pharmaceuticals can give me and no I admit it wasnt much but the lil I did grow was solid gain for a small frame and now when I step on stage at a pro show am always one of the smallest where women out weigh me by 20lbs of solid mass.

My point is that no matter what I do or try I might never fit in and that is ok but am gonna try either way and if the panel does not approve of what I bring at least I know I tried and will always know in my heart I TRIED.

I totally understand wanting to be competitive as long as each person is happy with their look. For me I want to be true to myself and only myself and if that places me last onstage than so be it but I will always know i brought the look i like for my body on and off season.

It sounds like you were comfortable and liked your body at all the different sizes which is great so to adapt would not be changing who you are. :awesome: Looking forward to seeing you on the WP stage

Posting a couple of vids on a shoulder wkout my son and I did today or shall I say Sunday :). We did several rotator cuff warm ups and some light wt over head presses before we began with cable.

After we warmed up we got started with 4 set of cable front raises then 3 sets of side laterals and then we went on to presses which ya will see on vids. recorded one of each set but in total we did 3 with the bar and then 3 with plates on bar.

Sooo I still have some time on the money issue ...am sure it will all work itself out.:)

It is what it is and am happy with fifth place though some suggest my place should have been lower and that i was too muscular, dry, striated and blah blah blah but am just gonna keep working on toning it down a bit more the truth is i will always be looked at as a fbb AND while i might have been a tad too much so were others as far as dryness, hardness and vascularity but its ok on them just not on the lil bodybuilder aka lil mama....too much? perhaps but its still a work in progress always has been always will be.
