Gabby Scheyen on Her Social Media Pages
On her personal website, she introduces herself as someone who has passion for all fitness-related subjects. She goes on describing that she started out as a “cardio bunny” in 2012 when she was 17. The Cardio did not bring her the desired outcome. There are also a few before and after photos that show the remarkable curves she has built by leaving mere cardio and lifting weights. Afterwards, as she says, she went from one extreme to another and started to deal with “binge eating” for a few years until 2014 when she found that she loves weight lifting at the age of 19. And now at 23 years of age, she wants to dedicate her life to helping teenage girls and boys avoid or recover from going through what she did when she was younger.
She concludes her introductory passage with the sentence: “We all deserve to be confident in our own skin, and to love ourselves unconditionally.” On her website, she also posted a number of impressive transformational images by those who have been guided by Gabby and have spectacularly changed their body shapes. Her Instagram page has more than 320,000 followers, her YouTube channel has more than 270,000 subscibers, and her Twitter account has more than 17,000 followers.
Gabby’s Tips and Recommendations for Workout Plans
Considering gym workouts, she highlights combining compound movements and isolation exercises as the most effective form of workout. She recommends starting a workout plan with compound movements, including squats, deadlifts, bench press, and pull-ups, in order to activate multiple muscle groups. After being exhausted with compound lifts, it is the time to move on to isolations that can be done based on the muscles that are to be trained at a session. For instance, if she is on her legs and glutes day, she goes for leg extensions or glute kickbacks after doing leg and glutes compound movements.
Her favorite glute and lower body workout program includes wide-stance barbell squats, two sets of warm-up, three sets of 8 to 12 repetitions, three sets of barbell hip thrusts with 12 repetitions, three sets of lunges with 8 to 12 steps, three sets of glute bridge with 12 repetitions, and finally three sets of cable glute kickbacks with 12 repetitions.
For upper body, one of the four staple programs she recommends starts with bench press – which is her favorite – starting with heavy weights in one repetition at the maximum and then dropping the weight and doing three sets of eight repetitions. Then, she suggests incline dumbbell press with three sets of 10 to 12 repetitions. The next step is cable fly with three sets of 10 repetitions, which can be done seated or stand up. Gabby, herself, chooses to do it seated in order to engage her core. And finally, the fourth part is the neutral grip dumbbell press with three sets of 15 repetitions.
Gabby’s Tips and Recommendations for Dieting
She emphasizes that everyone should love their physique above all. If one hates what he/she sees, he/she will always hate it even if he/she makes a few physical changes. In this regard, she stresses that being fit is not equal to long starvations. Too much restriction on one’s food may lead to eating complications. According to Gabby, food is body’s fuel and energy, and should be properly utilized to tone the body.
At the start, while she thought eating too few calories and doing so much cardio can make her fit, she had the biggest struggle to start a healthy diet. As she describes on her website, she then started “binging on food” that brought its own problems and could not make her happy. In the end, she found her way and decided to give up tracking calories, a decision which helped her look and feel much better. The main progress Gabby ever observed in her mind and body was when she stopped calorie counting and started to listen to her body. She also recommends her followers to follow a balanced diet full of healthy foods, and probably sometimes a few cheat meals to have a short but well-deserved rest and get ready for bigger leaps!
