Personal Trainer Michelle Yeager Turner is training for a bodybuilding competition. She showed WDRB's Sterling Riggs the proper way to do competition poses to show off muscle definition.
Yeager-Tuner says competitions are very physical and mental in preparation. But she says for a lot of people, using the poses body builders use helps improve posture and is a confidence builder.
About Michelle Yeager Turner
Getting active and motivated is tough for many women--especially after having a baby. But Michelle Yeager-Turner had many challenges to bring her beloved son Maximus into the world. Gymnastics as a child, cheerleading in high school and even competitive bodybuilding couldn't prepare her for the toll it took on her body. Add ten weeks bed rest, and Michelle was ready to get moving, after her son arrived.
But she found it difficult to work out because not many gyms were sympathetic to her son crying in daycare. So Michelle found another way. She created her own at-home workouts. She learned a lot about herself and what it takes to get back on track.
