Rebecca UMP favorite supplement

UMP Chocolate and Strawberry

Strawberry is my favorite, a treat that tastes like cake batter!

Favorite UMP recipe (off-season treat):

Peanut Butter Protein Bites one-third cup natural peanut butter, one-forth cup honey, 1 scoop chocolate UMP, 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed, 3 tbsp mini dark chocolate chips Mix all ingredients together. Form dough into quarter size bites. Store in the refrigerator.

Favorite BI Supplement: Muscle Mass-This is an excellent BCAA! I used it throughout my prep to aid in muscle preservation and muscle recovery. Taking Muscle Mass during training is the secret to sustaining my intense training schedule.

The Results

I competed in my first show in March of 2015, the NPC Natural Ohio. I was thrilled to garner second place in the Women’s Physique Open A Class and win the overall in the Master’s Women’s Physique division.

Four weeks later, I competed in the NPC Kentucky Derby and placed third in both the Women’s Physique Open Class A and Master’s Women’s Physique Class. It was a great start to what I know will be a challenging but re-warding experience in Women’s Physique. A big thank you to my awesome coaches, my amazingly supportive husband and family for helping me battle through this huge accomplishment.
