Secrets About Michelle Lewin
Who Is Michelle Lewin?
The Venezuelan model Michelle Lewin, age 29, was born in 1986 and grew up in the city of Maracay. Although she was aware that she was pretty, she never realized just what she could achieve with this. In between her studies, she did some work in local catwalks when she had time, but didn’t put that much energy into modeling.
However, in 2009, she was spotted by a photographer who realized her potential and offered her work. Now, Michelle has modeled all over the world, appearing on 14 magazine covers in various different countries. She also starred in the music video for Lehhhgooo with N.O.R.E. and Busta Rhymes.
After she discovered a passion for working out, Michelle now specializes in fitness modeling and competes in fitness contests. She has transformed her body to become rock-hard, gaining 25 lbs. of muscle - from 95 lbs. to 120 lbs. She measures 36-24-36.
You may have seen various magazines, including Playboy, Touch, M!, and many more, with a cover picture of Michelle Lewin. Age has not held her back, and now she is hotter than ever.
Michelle Lewin Workout
Michelle's weight training regimes have given her amazingly muscular toned abs. However, these routines aren't based on limited reps with heavy weights; instead Michelle uses lighter weights to reduce the risk of bruising her muscles. She confides that she was naturally endowed with a great bum, but she became complacent and started to neglect it. When Michelle realized this, the first thing she did was to focus her workouts on toning the lower part of her bottom using many different drills, including lunges, leg presses, and squats. However, the downside of all this booty training was that her upper body was becoming too thin. Therefore now she's a big advocate of full-body workouts.
Michelle is passionate about shaping and toning her muscles using weights; bicep curls are one of her favorite exercises. She works out five times a week, and loves to see the amazing effects of weight training on her body. Here is a taster of the weekly routine you can expect in a Michelle Lewin workout.
