Lisa Spitzer EBOOST Brand Ambassador
24 July 2015EBOOST Brand Ambassador Lisa Spitzer has a schedule few would envy but she has the natural energy to do more! She’s at the gym by 4am to get her own training as a National Physique Committee (NPC) competitor before shifting her attention to her personal training clients. To say Lisa needs a boost now and then is an understatement! Let’s see how Lisa keeps her body in amazing shape and has the energy to stay motivated and achieve her goals.
Why do you use EBOOST?I am a figure competitor with the National Physique Committee (NPC) and a personal trainer. My day starts with a 4:00 am training session before I start working with clients. I am always looking for a little boost to get more through those tough training sessions especially as competition time gets closer. I am a vegan and eat mostly organic. I am always on the lookout for good clean products that are free of artificial ingredients, sweeteners and artificial colors but are also very effective. I tried EBOOST POW™ for a 4:00am training session and have not used another per-workout since.
What’s your workout routine?I do resistance (weight) training five days a week and cardio two-three times a week depending on my goals. For resistance training I work usually one muscle group per session. For cardio I prefer HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) in 20-minute sessions. Here is a sample of my training for a week:
- Monday: Back
- Tuesday; Chest/Cardio
- Wednesday: Shoulders
- Thursday: Abs/Cardio
- Friday: Legs
- Saturday: Biceps Triceps/Cardio
- Sunday: Rest
What do you eat in a typical day?As a personal trainer and a figure competitor my energy needs are high. Calories are units of energy. I focus on getting good, quality calories to keep me going strong. You need to make sure to include the right amount of protein, carbs and fats in your daily plan depending on your goal. My number one rule is to avoid processed foods. With clean, nutrient dense food, your system will run like a finely tuned machine, which will turn your metabolism into a fire burning furnace. Here is a sample of my daily nutrition plan that I follow. Please note that everybody is different and has specific energy (calorie) needs based on age, weight, activity level, goals etc., just to name few.
- Breakfast: 6 Egg whites, 2 whole eggs, 1 cup veggies and 1 cup blueberries
- Snack: Whey protein shake
- Lunch: 6 oz of Fish, 1 cup veggies, 1 cup jasmine rice
- Snack: Whey protein shake with 2 tablespoons of Peanut Butter
- Dinner: 4 oz of fish, sweet potato, veggies of large salad, olive oil
