Ali is a fitness model and
Heptathlete. She competed
at the 1996 and 2000 US
Height: 5ft 9"
Weight: 140 pounds
I try to train my abs three-four
times per week while performing
either a variety of exercises back
to back or using different abdominal
machines. I do the back to back
exercises whilst lying on the ground;
single-leg v-ups, toe crunches,
medicine ball presses, oblique crunches etc.
I usually do 20-25 reps of each exercise and continue through until I burn out completely! Usually one set does me in.
My other abdominal routine consists of machine crunches. I'll typically do five sets starting at a low weight, doing 50 reps, then 10 lbs. more doing 40 reps, then 10lbs. more doing 30 reps, etc.
My cardiovascular training stems from my comprehensive track and field background as a world-ranked heptathlete. I I do a great deal of interval sprinting and hill repeats. Since I don't compete in track any longer (last competition were the Olympic Trials in 2000), I've incorporated 'cardio dance' into my training regime once or twice a week. I'm lucky enough to have a very energetic and enthusiastic instructor! The key to my training has been, and always will be, variety. It keeps things spicy and continues to keep your body guessing and prepared for anything you throw at it.
Here is my general diet for you to stay fit and in shape. Remember, exercising and diet are both key to your overall success!
Breakfast: Protein pancake or Oatmeal and a protein Shake
Snack: Protein bar
Lunch: Tuna, rice and veggies/salad
Snack: Protein Shake or Protein bar
Dinner: Chicken or Fish with Veggies/Salad
Bedtime Snack: Protein Shake
To get great abs you must eat clean, stay away from processed foods and stick to natural foods like vegetables, wholegrains, fruits, meats, poultry and fish.
Good Luck with your program
