Biography

Linda Durbesson was born in the south of France and was always active and into sports, including things like tennis, mountain biking, and martial arts. With a passion to see the world, she moved to the United States with a boyfriend, but after the relationship ended, she was stuck in a foreign country, forced to figure it out on her own. And she did. She began her fitness journey determined to change her physique and even enrolled at an American university.

She studied Personal Training and began a new journey, learning about the importance of nutrition and exercise. After working on her physique at the same time, she began to amass a following on social media and was eventually approached by a magazine as a model. Using her platform and her website, she now encourages others to fuel their desire to change their bodies and continues to inspire and motivate her fans with updated progress every single day.

Training

Linda’s training usually follows a six day cycle and she works on her legs and upper body separately to develop and maintain her great body. Typically these days will alternate lower body lifts with upper body lifts and cardio every other day with Sunday being a good rest day. Her cardio is never too crazy, but just enough to keep her fitness high.

Nutrition

Linda eats around 5 meals a day to always be fueling her metabolism and giving her body what it needs to thrive inside and out of the gym. Her diet mainly revolves around lean proteins like egg whites and turkey, complex carbs like oats and sweet potato, and fruits and vegetables including raspberries, asparagus, green beans, and kiwis. Of course, Linda does allow herself a cheat meal here and there like candy or chocolate, for she eats very clean but also wants to enjoy herself.

Supplementation

While Linda uses her own supplements of choice, having a solid supplementation routine in place can only work to continue those gains from a healthy diet and proper training. A protein powder is one to boost muscle growth and recovery for those post-workout needs, while a pre-workout can provide for muscle pumps and continued energy throughout the workout for whatever you need to start. Creatine supplements or BCAAs are great for fighting fatigue and aiding in muscle soreness, while also increasing strength, and for those who really want to see that shredded aesthetic, a fat burner can influence this greatly.
