About Samantha Sage
I rock my body in many ways to maintain my rockin’ body! I started off as a gymnast at a very young age. I continued with gymnastics all throughout high school and was a varsity cheerleader as well. I was always very active and always maintained an athletic figure. After high school I got a job at a local gym. I was surrounded by active people, and some of my co- workers were fitness competitors. They had convinced me to do a fitness competition. I decided I would compete as a figure competitor in the Mrs. Buffalo, 2012. I saw competing as a challenge and I am always up for a new challenge. I thought it would be fun and a cool experience. After long hours of training, and serious dedication, I placed top three for my first competition. I just recently competed again at a local NMA competition and placed 1st! My future goals are to incorporate my gymnastics into competing by competing as a fitness competitor this summer.
I feel empowered each day when I finish a work out, and when I complete challenging tasks that I would have never thought I could do. I especially feel empowered on stage, when it is my time to shine, making the long weeks of training and dieting all worth it.
My favorite body part to train is my back.
A typical back workout looks like this:
(unassisted): 3 sets of 10 reps
Seated Close-Grip Cable Row:
3 sets of 15 reps
Lat Pulldown: 3 sets of 15
Bent Over Barbell Row: 3 setsof 15 reps
Pullover With Straight Bar: 3sets of 15 reps
I am wearing The Sophie Bra and The Durga Booty Shorts!
