Carolina Araujo is a personal trainer at David Barton Gym and a National Physique Committee (NPC) competitor. Carolina is the 2015 New Jersey State Champ and the 2015 Europa Games Atlantic City champ! Carolina has had a competitive fire in her from a young age. She played European Handball for many years, but when she moved to the US from Brazil, she searched for a new sport to call her own. Then she found weight training, as a way to keep fit and be healthy as well as a way to help her be a better person. She found that fire again with bodybuilding. Now, as a personal trainer and bikini competitor, Carolina is driven by helping others evolve their bodies, becoming stronger.
Why do you use EBOOST?
As a personal trainer and fitness athlete the focus and intensity I am able to experience during my workouts is crucial. POW allows me to pick up my energy levels and have a kickass workout in the healthiest way possible.
What’s your workout routine?
Here’s an example of one of my “leg day” routines:
4×12-15 barbell squats
4×20 lateral squats
4×20 narrow stance leg press
4 drop sets 10/10/10 leg extensions
4×12 heavy dumbbell stiff leg deadlift
4x until failure bench glute extension with resistance bands
4×10 heavy lying hamstring curls
bodyweight walking lunges
4×25 dumbbell walking lunges
4×15 bodyweight back extensions
What’s your typical diet?
My diet really varies depending on what stage of training I am in. During my off season, where my main focus is to refuel my body and add muscle back on my diet is filled with simple carbs, red meat, and lean protein like tuna and chicken.
Breakfast: oatmeal, 1 egg and 4 egg whites, 1/2 scoop of protein shake, coconut oil
Lunch: pasta, red meat (steak or ground beef), tomato sauce and olive oil
Post workout meal: white rice and ground beef
Dinner: red potatoes, chicken, 2 scoops of protein shake, avocado
Night snack: Tuna or a protein shake
I ALWAYS drink 2 scoops of protein shake post workout and carbs. Again, this is my off-season diet. When I am getting ready to go on stage, I eat less red meat and I have plenty of chicken, ground turkey and tilapia.
