Cyberflexing.com Exclusive Interview With IFBB Pro Bikini Athlete Kristina Olson

How did you get started with bodybuilding?

I’ve always loved exercise. I used to play Junior Olympic Softball as a teenager and love the active lifestyle. While attending college, I spent many hours behind a desk studying and needed to find balance in my life. Through BodyBuilding.com, I was introduced to different training programs and exercises. This is ultimately what got me into bodybuilding. I’d never gone into the gym before with a real plan or purpose.

Once I got started, I loved it and just kept going! I also used to work in the entertainment industry as the singing voice for Barbie and front woman of the band Kristina and The Dolls. I’m very at home on stage and love the competition aspect of being an IFBB Bikini Pro.

How do you stay so motivated? What drives you?

I’m naturally a very driven person, though we all have those days when we’re feeling unmotivated. I’m constantly making to do lists. It’s pretty much like one never ending list. I set HUGE goals for myself and break them down into more manageable pieces that I can start working on immediately. When I set my sights on something, I dig deep and find a way to make it happen.

I can’t pin point what drives me exactly. It’s just ingrained in me. I have a fire inside that pushes forward and helps me strive to be my best self.

What is your training routine like?

I’m currently putting a lot of emphasis on my glutes. I’ve been training heavy putting in 5-7 sets of all of my exercises and aiming for 4-8 reps. I love high intensity interval training but have cut back on it until I gain more weight.

If you had to choose only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?

  1. Heavy dumbbell walking lunges are definitely a favorite of mine. They really work your whole body and I welcome the soreness I feel the next day.
  2. Wide grip lat pulldowns are great. They’re so important for building upper body strength. Whenever women tell me they want to be able to do pull-ups, I always tell them to do lat pulldowns and lift heavy. The isolation on your back will help build muscle to help with pull-ups.
  3. I love single arm tricep extensions. It’s a really good exercise for the development of your triceps. The single arm variation enables you to get more isolation and build a balanced physique.

What is your favourite form of cardio?

High Intensity Interval training and sprints are my favorite form of cardio.

What is your diet like?

I eat a lot of protein (including red meat like top sirloin). I like to add healthy fats here and there including almond butter, almond milk, whole eggs, nuts, and avocados. My carbohydrate intake varies depending on whether I’m on prep or in a building phase.

On a high day I’ll eat anywhere between 150-200 grams of protein and 300 grams of carbohydrates including yams, oats, brown rice, and quinoa.

What supplements do you use?

I love pre-workout. Watermelon N.O.-Xplode by BSN is my favorite. I use Syntha-6 by BSN to supplement my protein. The Mochaccino flavor is amazing. I also really like Arctic Berry flavored Cell Mass, a glutamine and creatine based post workout drink for recovery by BSN.

What are the highlights of your fitness career?

In November I earned my IFBB Pro Card at the National Bodybuilding Championships in Miami, FL, and I am currently a finalist for Bodybuilding.com’s Spokesmodel Search.

It’s been a goal of mine to be an athlete for Bodybuilding.com and I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to compete for the chance at the finals on February 7th at the LA Fit Expo!
