Kate Errington: IFBB PRO Fitness

Kate Errington is an IFBB Fitness PRO from the UK. She was awarded her Pro card after winning the overall at the Arnolds USA 2017 and then made her PRO debut at the same competition a year later taking runner up. Two weeks later Kate competed at the Arnolds Australia and got her first PRO win plus an invite to the 2018 Olympia contest in Vegas. 

Kate is currently prepping for the Olympia and her youtube videos are regularly uploaded to both her YouTube KateErrington and the A-List YouTube. 

Training is very intense for a fitness competitor, as not only do they need to diet and come in very lean, but they also have to do a fitness routine which incorporates elements of strength, flexibility and speed. The athletes mix things such as dance and gymnastics in to these 2 minute routines meaning that their training goes beyond the weights room. Kate's current split looks something like this:-

 

MON - Gymnastics and Legs 

TUES - Back, Glutes and Cardio 

WED - Shoulders, Glutes and Cardio 

THURS - Legs and Cardio 

FRI - Gymnastics and cardio 

SAT - Upper body, Glutes and cardio 

SUN - REST DAY 

 

Kate is also a professional dancer and a coach for other athletes, including bikini and figure, so she spends a lot of her time performing in shows, posing clients and making sure everything in normal life is running smoothly too!

With regards to supplementation, Kate is a natural athlete and uses all A-List products. 

On prep here is an idea of what Kate will use:-

Wake up: Take Primeval Pyretic, MTS Machine Motion, 2 scoops of Core Nutritionals Hard Extreme, 1 x MTS Machine Uptake.

With Breakfast in oats: 1 scoop of 'Merica Labz Patriots Whey

Midday: 1 scoop of Core Nutritionals Hard Extreme

Pre Workout: 1 scoop of 'Merica Labz Stars 'N Pipes, Primeval Pyretic, L-Carnitine 

Intra Workout: 1 scoop of either Primeval Labs EAAs or 1 scoop of 'Merica Minos 

Post Workout: Ambrosia Overtraining Solution 

When she uses her laptop: Ambrosia Night Owl (Blue Light Protection)

 

Kate is aiming to bring her best physique and routine yet to the big Olympia stage and make her mark out in Vegas, she then hopes to continue on competing at as many Arnolds as she can and of course defend her Australia title, and then one day win the Olympia. She won't stop until it happens and she is not afraid of hard work, so watch this space!

CURRENT TRAINING

My current approach to training is fairly LOW volume per session, with higher frequencies of hitting muscle groups and of course, always high intensity with a close proximity to failure. I have, and always will, love training this way. 

I log all my training with pen and paper - I have over 30 log books at home! 

My current split is Pull, Push, Legs, *off* repeat.. sometimes I will train 6 days on one day off depending on my schedule. 

 

NUTRITION

My approach to nutrition when gaining is a prioritisation of carbohydrates, especially on training days. I favour high carb, low fat and moderate protein. At my current bodyweight of 182 lbs (August 2017) I am consuming 650g Carb, 50-60g Fats and 250-280g Protein on training days. 

Rationale behind this being - carbs are our predominant fuel as performance based athletes, they massively influence recovery capabilities also. Fats are most EASILY stored as body fat, so when looking to maximise lean tissue gain, keeping them moderate to low on training days is ideal to also maximise gastric emptying and thus digestion. 

On off days, my nutrition is lower carb, higher fat, with the rationale being that fats are anti-inflammatory, to reduce inflammation from the week of training, a higher fat and a carb intake to match my output (far lower) is adequate on these days. 

 

SUPPLEMENT USE

Creatine - 5g a day

Core Omega 3 

Patriots Whey/Core Grow. 

Intra Workout - Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin, Primeval EAA, Taurine, Glutamine, Electrolytes. 

Ambrosia - Overtraining, Night Owl, Golden. 

MTS - Uptake & Greens. 

Pre - Mega Pre (non stim) -  Red White & Boom (stim).

 

FUTURE GOALS

I enter the gym everyday with the vision of ultimately earning my WNBF Pro Card. I will most likely take a 2 year off season in order to be in a position to earn that. 

Outside of the gym, my goals are to have full health of myself & my family, make myself and my family financially comfortable for the rest of my life and grow my business to be recognised worldwide as one of the leading natural bodybuilding contest prep services. 

This is only the very beginnings of my journey so far and I’m so excited to share the rest of it. 

Chris Pazienti: Miami Pro Overall Winner and MuscleMania Competitor 2017

Im a 22 year old fitness model competitor. I studied dance for four years at university and have been training ever since I turned seventeen. I'm motivated and constantly driven to be better than I was yesterday and strive to one day make a name for myself within the fitness industry. I am very self disciplined and take my training and nutrition very seriously. I have competed three times, placing first in my most recent show which has handed me the invitation to compete at MuscleMania in Las Vegas at the end of this year. In the long run I hope to one day become a role model to inspire and motivate the next generation of fitness enthusiasts.

 

I am excited to be a part of the A-List Nutrition team. They provide top of the range high quality supplements that are essential in my daily routine. I would never use or promote any supplements unless I truly believed they were top quality.

James Dodds: Managing Director

I started my fitness journey as a young 14 year old wanting to get as big as possible, in amazement at guys like Ronnie coleman, jay cutler and many more. So naturally I invested my money in supplements, food etc anything that would get me closer to that goal. I’d try a new brand from my favourite online retail store each month, and most, to tell you the truth I was disappointed with. I didn’t know why, I then continued to compete in 6 natural bodybuilding shows, never placing below top 3 in any regional and placing in the top 6 at all my national appearances. I learnt very quickly the science behind building muscle both in the gym and in the kitchen. With this new found knowledge I then found that most of the UK supplement industry was filled with under-dosed, poor quality products. So then I created A-List Nutrition Ltd, we won’t have 100s of brands available to you, but you can be sure that the brands that we do stock are some of the best on the planet. It’s about time the consumer came first in this industry, instead of profit margins, we are going to achieve that.

 

I love pre workouts, so automatically I had to try Core Fury Extreme. There is no other product on the market like it, incredible endurance, strength and pump allowing any level of athlete to push past failure in the gym. Stack this product with ABC intra and PUMP pre and PBs will be BROKEN.
