Maddie Krocak - Bikini Competitor

I got interested in competing because I was lacking in competition in my life. I grew up figure skating and absolutely loved competing. Since that an injury stopped my skating career, Iíve been weightlifting and decided to bring competition back into my life through bikini competition

hello hello ???? thought Iíd share a no makeup pic to show one of my fav perks of being vegan ?? I didnít struggle with acne until my adult life. Around 19 or 20 years old my chin became a war zone for mountainous zits. The super shitty kind that you canít pop cause theyíre so deep (I know you shouldnít pop them anyway blah blah scarring whatever). I wanted them gone I went to my GYN and got a prescription which did nothing. Then I went to a dermatologist and got a prescription which kind of got rid of the zits but also ATE MY FREAKING SKIN OFF TOO. Which btw is also not cute ?? Fast forward a couple years of dealing with occasional mount everest chin zits and then I went vegan. It didnít even hit me until a couple months later but my skin was clear. Really really clear. If you struggle with acne I recommend at least cutting out dairy. If you stop consuming products filled with hormones, antibiotics and preservatives, your skin will thank you ?? fav skin care products??

My diet stays relatively the same, just different amounts. Iím Vegan and truly think my muscles have grown now than when I wasnít vegan. I feel so much healthier. I donít think any diet he failed me. I used to eat meat and dairy, I was just always bloated and sluggish. That had completely gone away since being vegan. Iíve been vegan for a little over a year. I initial wanted to try it for the health benefits. I had read a lot about how people on a plant based diet have more energy, clearer skin, etc. so I tried it. It made me realize how many animal products we consume without even realizing it. And then I noticed that my muscles were growing faster, I had better workouts, and overall looked leaner. I felt like I was eating more than ever, but lost 11lbs in six months without trying or tracking anything. Now, Iím more educated on how animal products can lead to chronic diseases in humans, and Iíll never go back. I hope to advocate more against the meat and dairy industry and their collusion within our government in the near future.

I think Iíve always been a fairly confident person. Even when I was a kid I wanted to be different from the other kids. Figure skating definitely helped build my performance confidence too. You just have to own it!

In the off season Iím doing 20 minutes of cardio a week. Lifting heavy as possible too! When my prep starts I will slowly add in more cardio and incorporate more HIIT movements in my lifting schedule. Training wise, Iíve always been active. I grew up a competitive figure skater and also started running in high school. I was always on the ice or hitting the trails. By 17 I had finished my first marathon, but a disease advancement in my lower legs eventually made me quit both skating and running. Thatís how I initially found weightlifting. I have regularity been lifting since I was 17 years old and have grown in it ever since. Now, Iím excited to be prepping for my first bodybuilding competition. Iíve always loved competing and am exciting to be bringing my competitive blood to bodybuilding. I look forward to showing people that you donít need to eat meat to build muscle!

Being an athlete is one of the best parts of my life. I love pushing my boundaries and seeing what my body is capable of.

I will be competing this spring, my goals for this competition season is to win my class and qualify for a national show! Woohoo!
