Cassandra "the mini-beast" La Madrid
Client in the spotlight- where Team Omega athletes are featured that have accomplished amazing feats of strength or physical transformation
Cassie and her fiancé Colby have been my training partners on and off for three years now. Cassie became a Team Omega athlete to work on proper nutrition, fueling one of the hardest working athletes I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
Cassie is a stron(wo)man competitor, powerlifter, occasional crossfitter, super active athletic phenom. Once upon a time at just 97lbs standing maybe 5’ tall she squatted over 300 pounds. Cassie recently hit a 115lb log press, 350 yoke walk, 150lbs per hand farmers in competition as well.
To fuel the mini-beast we had to make some adjustments primarily to her macronutrients. Cassie likes to keep a very lean physique. First thing was to lower protein from 2g/lb bodyweight to 1g/lb bodyweight to make room for other macros. Primary protein sources come from animal protein, whey, and select dairy products. I substantially increased her carbohydrates primarily in the form of rice, oats, lentils and a little bit of fruit, to fuel her activity level. Fat was set at 20%-30 of total caloric intake and adjusted for satiety. Cassie eats five meals per day with different macros on training days and non training days.
Secret tech includes dark chocolate for cravings, power coffee (protein coffee), and probiotic yogurt. Supplements are kept to a minimum but vitamin d for hormones+ and caffeine cycling to promote lypolisis during activity. Cassie's body-weight is unchanged but noticeably leaner and more muscular. Most importantly her lifts are improving across the board.
It’s a pleasure working with you Cassie and I appreciate all of your dedication!
