CutAndJacked.com Interview:


WBFF Pro Chady Dunmore

What sparked your interest in training...
when/how did you get started?

My biggest inspiration and the spark for me to even get into good enough shape and to have won has been my daughter. It was after having her 5 years ago, and the potential medical pitfalls I overcame that inspired me to do more and gave me the courage to overcome my fears and doubts.

How does it feel to be the WBFF Pro Bikini World Champion and what have you learnt whilst competing for the title?

The first time I won in 2010 was an amazing feeling because it was my first WBFF Pro Show and I didn't go in with any expectation but to place well. The 2 peats in 2011 when I defended my title was a totally different experience, because now I had something to lose and had more pressure to perform. I also came in more prepared but will probably never get over the nervous feeling I get on stage. I think the most important lesson I learned is that when you are competing against so many amazing women you have to make sure everything is the best you can make it, from the hair, makeup, tan, bikini, dress, shoes, posing, stage presence, and of course your physique you really have no room for error.

Do you listen to music whilst you train? If so what’s
on your playlist right now?

Yes, I love music, I am inspired by Rihanna, Beyonce, and once in a while my own songs when I am getting ready to get into the studio and need to practice my vocals.

What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of being a mom, but love seeing myself at the grocery store on the magazine rack, and will always have my crowns and trophies to remind me of what I have accomplished and can be the grandma that sits around talking about "back when I was the bikini world champ"

Are you or have you ever been a cardio bunny
and avoided the free-weight section?

I am definitely not afraid of the free-weight section, I hate cardio and rarely do it. I get all my cardio by doing intense interval training using weights.

How long do you spend in the gym during
a typical workout?

I usually get my workouts done in an hour, except when I am prepping for a competition then I will bump it up to a couple one-hour sessions.

What’s the longest break you’ve had from training?

Since I got serious 5 years ago, the longest break I have taken is probably a month,
after that I start to lose my mind.

Have you had any obstacles or setbacks
towards achieving your goal physique?

I do have a kidney disease that was diagnosed when I was 4 years old, so I have to diet down different than other competitors and also have to be careful with my water depletion. I also had a back injury a few months out from the 2011 world championships that I had to overcome to defend my title.

We know consistency is key, what tips would you g
ive to anyone struggling to stay consistent?

Vision Board has been a key tool I have used and I make a new one every time I make a new goal, or every year. I also think you need to set a date like an event or competition that is set, so you are forced to meet a deadline or suffer the consequences.

How do you deal with cravings for junk foods,
sweets and salty food?

I eat them!!! Then move on and get it out of my system.

Who are your favorite athletes or fitness models?

I have so many, and I am not just saying that, I truly have made so many great friends in the fitness model and competition world over the last few years. I have been really lucky to be so involved in this industry that I have had a chance to spend enough time with them and stay in touch thanks to social media and text messaging that if I tried to name a few the list would just keep going.

What types of cardio have worked best for you?

Besides the boring bike and stairmill, I try to mix it up with
some Zumba or kickboxing classes.

What is your training routine like?

Monday: Legs, calves, abs

Tuesday: Back, shoulders

Wednesday: Chest, abs

Thursday: Biceps, triceps

Friday: Legs, calves, abs
4-5sets of 15-20 reps.

Saturday: Zumba or trampoline class
Cardio - 20 - 30min of 3x a week of high intensity interval training/sprints.

What does your diet consist of?

When I am not competing it consists of naughty bacon avocado cheeseburgers and IHOP once a week! But when I don't get to indulge it is made up of bison, fish, chicken, flank steak, sweet potato, brown rice, mushrooms, oatmeal, Ezekiel bread, whole eggs, egg whites, fruit, almond butter, green beans, asparagus. Clean whole food:)

What supplements would you use/recommend if any?

I love Musclepharm Assault, Muscle Gels, and Combat Powder. I also use their BCAA, glutamine, recon and Armour V, which has milk thistle (good for kidneys).

What tips would you give to any woman wanting to get a feminine, CutandJacked physique like yours?

Don't be afraid of weights, cut out pictures of all your favorite body parts of fitness models or celebrities and make your own Mrs. Potato head doll vision board and stick to a plan. You have to make yourself accountable and one of the best ways is with workout buddies, get a few girls together with similar goals, make sure they aren't just saying they want to do it only to stop after a few weeks and then sabotaging your efforts.

Height: 5'7"
Weight: 127 pounds on stage / 135 pounds off season
