Beef & Veggie Stir Fry by OhYeah! Athlete and Fitness Model Emina Hecimovic Casady
2lb thinly sliced beef (I used flat iron steak)
2 bell peppers thinly sliced
1/2 red onion thinly sliced
1 bunch of asparagus chopped into 1 inch pieces
salt & pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1. Heat olive oil on medium, stir in veggies and cook until desired firmness. I like my veggies really soft so I sauteed mine for about 10 minutes. Place cooked veggies onto a plate or bowl and set aside. Place beef slices into hot pan and cook until no longer pink. Return veggies into pan and mix with beef. Season with salt & pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.
If you like your veggies firm, you can cook your beef first then just add the veggies to the pan once beef is no longer pink.
You can also use chicken breast slices or prawns instead of beef.

How and why did you get involved in the sport?
As a child athlete, I was no stranger to the fitness world. Involved in gymnastics, dance and cheerleading at a young age, I was attracted to the competitive nature and health aspect associated with such activities. Working out has always been a part of my life beginning with daily conditioning workouts as a gymnast. I took my love for fitness and became a gymnastics coach, personal trainer and bikini competitor.
What are your future goals in and out of the sport?
Always determined, I’m following my dreams to become a top fitness model, trainer and motivation to others by sharing my journey.
As far as my goals out of the sport, opening a healthy “fit” restaurant has always been a dream of mine. When most people hear the words “eating healthy,” they think of bland, boring, flavorless foods. The fact is, that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring at all. I want to show my community that eating healthy can be fun, exciting and delicious. From healthy omelets, protein smoothies and muffins to decadent entrées, organic wines and deserts-My future restaurant will create a new meaning to clean eating.
What does your post workout nutrition and supplementation look like?
I always drink a protein shake post workout. It’s easy, convenient and counts as one of my six daily meals. Drinking a protein shake after my workout provides the nutrients and amino acids I need to start the recovery process. My favorite protein is MRI’s Pro-NOS. The whey fractions you find in Pro-NOS not only provide your body muscle building amino acids, but they also promote increased nitric oxide.
Do you have a bulk season? How does your meal plan change?
Bulk season certainly means something different for everyone . For some, it means anything goes, no exercising, and “I’m allowed to eat whatever I want” kind of attitude.
In my opinion, that’s not what bulking is about. For me bulking is about putting on muscle, building shape and making improvements. Basically, off season bulking is about bringing your diet up to a level which will allow your body to grow.
Obviously I will limit my “cheat meals” and Ben & Jerry’s Fro Yo leading up to a competition, but my diet doesn’t change much throughout the year. I’m a clean eater, enjoying my sweets, southern favorites and wine all in moderation.
What is your favorite cheat meal?
We all scream for ICECREAM Ben & Jerry’s Fro Yo Half Baked to be exact. I never totally eliminate things from my diet, and believe it’s important to enjoy certain foods in moderation. When I’m not training for a competition, I enjoy a “cheat meal” once a week.
What’s your favorite supplements to use and why?
I’m a pre workout lover. Stimulant free, endurance based, energy enhancers – I’ve tried them all. My favorite supplement is MRI’s Black Powder Ultra pre workout. It definitely gives me the energy and mental focus to push harder, lift heavier and maximize my workout.
What are your best tips for getting shredded abs?
I firmly believe 80 % of getting shredded abs comes from nutrition. My clients laugh when I tell them abs are made in the kitchen, but it’s true. Another one of my favorite sayings is “Junk IN=Junk OUT.” I’m sure most of you have heard of the 80/20 Rule when it comes to fitness. It’s simple, the key to achieving optimum fitness is 80% what you eat and 20% physical exercise.
What does your current training consist of?
Monday: Biceps /Back
Tuesday: Lower Body
Saturday: Lower Body
Sunday: Rest/Family Time
What are your three favorite exercises for building muscle and why?
Lunges/Squats- Who doesn’t want to work their booty? I like to pair these two together because they are my “go-to” exercises when I’m traveling . Not only are they a great lower body exercise you can perform anywhere, but it helps increase hip flexor flexibility, core stability and better balance.
Deadlifts- Deadlift is the only exercise that stimulates both the lower and upper body, and works more muscles simultaneously than any other movement (seriosuly-EVEN SQUATS!) This exercise is essentials for building muscle mass.
Military Press- The standing military press is one of my favorite compound exercises. Many people think that standing barbell military presses are only good for shoulder development. I’m not saying your shoulders won’t be screaming, but you can perform this exercise in a way that is killer for your abs. Sometimes the best muscle building exercises are the ones that appear so simple.

When did you start competing and fitness modeling?
I started competing in the Spring of 2011 when doctors told me that I wasn’t able to continue running marathons due to a knee injury. I needed an outlet, and a way to still remain competitive, even if it was only with myself. I started rehab on my knee and it led me to really appreciate weight training. Through that experience I found myself in the best shape of my life and won my first show. Since then I have switched to the Figure division and won my pro title in 2013.
I love to compete, but the world of fitness modeling is my favorite aspect of this industry and where I will most likely focus my energy on this year.
What keeps you motivated?
I’m most motivated by how I feel each day after eating clean and working out. I have SO much energy now that I know how to properly fuel my body with what it needs! I’m also extremely motivated and humbled by other women who reach out to me for help. Being able to help inspire others is something that I take a lot of pride in.
With your awesome abs, please tell us you enjoy some cheat meals. What are your favorites?
Too many to possibly fit into this interview! Haha! I love Reese’s peanut butter cups, coconut ice cream, pizza, and I could easily out-eat any grown man in a cheeseburger eating contest. My friends make fun of me all the time for how much I can eat!
That’s the type of girl we could hang out with! What about cardio? What’s your favorite kind?
I do cardio about 3 days per week, typically a really fun circuit that I make up on the spot! I can’t stand being on a treadmill if I don’t have to…so I choose to run stairs, sprint on the track, jump rope, or do fast plyo work that really gets the heart pumping!
What are your three favorite exercises for building muscle and why?
Pull-ups, Squats, Deadlifts. There are many variations that you can do with these three exercises and they are SO incredibly important. I used to be very thin and walked around with a flat booty that I wasn’t proud of. When I committed to a lifting routine, I did lower body work twice per week—squats and deadlifts completely changed my physique!
Squats and Deadlifts are officially in everyone’s workout not after reading that! Now we have to know about your abs. What are the best tips for getting shredded abs?
EAT CLEAN. Unless you have crazy awesome genetics, you will NOT see great results (especially in the abdomen area) if you don’t put your diet as a first priority. This concept was very hard for me when I first started competing because I have a MAJOR sweet tooth! I loved sugar. However, I find a good balance between healthy eating and letting myself “cheat” every now and again because I don’t think it’s healthy to restrict yourself from EVERYTHING! I still go out with friends and have a glass of wine or pieces of chocolate here and there, but then I get right back in my routine of clean choices. The longer I practice this the easier it becomes.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out?
I think it’s important to start with the basics. Eliminate alcohol, access sugars, processed food, etc. Focus on going to the grocery store and leaving with mostly leafy vegetables, healthy fats, and lean proteins! Allow yourself a cheat meal once per week in order to stay sane. Whatever you do, don’t over exercise!! I’ve seen many women running on treadmills for 1-2 hours every day of the week and that is not how anyone should go about losing body fat and getting fit. Most importantly, be patient. Nothing great happens overnight, so stay consistent and keep plugging away at little goals in order to not get overwhelmed.

When did you discover the weight room and decide to compete?
I discovered the weight room my freshman year of high school as part of my Basketball strength & conditioning pogram. I soon realized that I enjoyed and had a much brighter future via weight training than playing Basketball… Not many 5’5 players in the NBA now a days! lol
What are your future goals in and out of this sport?
My ultimate goal in the sport of bodybuilding would be to earn an IFBB pro card and compete in the 212 division. Outside of bodybuilding my main focus is my family, which takes priority over everything!
“My goal is to continue to be the absolute best husband/father I can each and every day.“
Let’s talk about your nutrition and diet. Do you have a bulk season? How does your meal plan change?
I actually hate the term “bulking” and see it as an excuse to become lazy with ones nutrition and get fat. I like to maintain a regimented eating plan year round, I’m either in contest prep or trying to gain lean quality size. There’s no such thing as OFF season!
That’s an awesome mindset to have. On that note then, what are your favorite cheat meals and foods?
Pizza, cheeseburgers, sushi & any baked goodies!
What are your favorite exericses for building muscle and why?
My top three mass building exercises are the Squat, Bench & Barbell Rows. Maybe its my Powerlifting roots, or the fact that I love all 3 exercises, either way I have always kept these staples in my training and do not plan on taking them out.
We know nutrition and training is big for you, but do you have any supplements that you use that help you with your results?
My favorite supplements are PNI’s Prodigy, Paragon & MyoACTIV EAAs. Prodigy is perfect for that extra kick of energy and razor sharp focus you need to tackle intense workouts in the gym. As a male bodybuilder looking to add quality muscle mass, I know hormones play a HUGE role. Paragon helps keep estrogen at bay and my testosterone soaring sky high. Last but not least EAA are essential for muscle repair and recovery. I use MyoACTIV EAAs intraworkout and throughout the day between meals to fight off catabolism.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out?
Consistency is key! Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day so be patient and continue to bust your butt day in and day out.

Pre-Workout Review – C4 Extreme vs Jack3dYou just got out of work and all you want to do is kick your feet up on the couch and watch the game. We all run into this problem and as our lives get busier and more stressful, the couch seems more and more appetizing. We all want to live a healthy, active lifestyle, but sometimes the amount of energy inside our bodies just cannot cater to that need. This is where NutraPlanet comes in to give you the proper information to make the decision that will have you pumped up and ready to work out. The supplement universe is filled with customers who are looking for the right product that will remain effective after the first doses, and sometimes that’s hard to find. So save whatever energy you have and listen up as we compare two of the most sought out energy supplements on the market today, C4 Extreme and Jack3d.
Cellucor C4 Extreme Supplement Review
When looking to achieve a healthy body, the first place to start is the brain. The brain is the most important muscle to stimulate and C4 Extreme does exactly that. When our body is given the necessary energy we can perform at the top of our ability. This supplement is used as a pre-workout energy boost, for those who are looking for the proper pump up before any type of exercising routine. C4 Extreme is a powdered energy supplement, most commonly mixed with water to create the necessary energy intake before working out. Cellucor has produced a product that harnesses NO3 technology and effective ingredients including the all-important creatine nitrate. This supplement is said to possess the power to ignite your mind, muscles and workout regimen, workout after workout.
Main Ingredients of C4 Extreme
- Vitamin C
- Niacin (As Niacinamide)
- Vitamin B12
- Beta Alanine
- Creatine Nitrate
- Arginine AKG
What makes C4 Extreme different?The NO3 inside C4 Extremes complex blend is what separates this supplement from others. Cellucor utilizes a new compound where NO3 has been fused to create the creatine Nitrate. This creatine nitrate opens up the blood pathways into the muscles, enabling ideal nutrient deliver and muscle pumps .The increased water solubility of the creatine nitrate promotes better absorption within the body and thus forth reduces the chance of typical side effects tied with creatine supplementation. C4 Extreme will provide you the extra energy and strength you need and is designed to promote physical endurance.
USPLabs Jack3d Supplement Review
USPLabs designed Jack3d to be an energy/focus supplement specifically for pre-workout use. This supplement looks to not only increase your energy but also help with the much needed focus that goes with working out and exercising. Primarily used before weight-lifting, Jack3d has found a new set of ingredients that bring them above and beyond normal substances inside pre-workout energy supplements. The special ingredients that make up Jack3d have proven to enhance intensity, power, endurance and energy levels for hours on end without a harsh, exhausted crash at the end.
Main Ingredients of Jack3d
- Schizandrol A
- Creatine Monohydrate
What makes Jack3d supplement different?The main aspect that makes this supplement so different than its competitors is the ingredients. Jack3d does not contain normal fillers like magnesium, maltodextrin or artificial dyes. It is packaged in a way smaller tin as it is ultra-concentrated and requires way less water in the mixing process. In essence, this product hits both angles, allowing you to increase strength, power, focus and stamina, while providing the enthusiasm to actually get into the gym. The end result is better performance in the gym and ultimately, more muscle mass.
Conclusion of C4 Extreme vs. Jack3d ReviewIf you are looking for a supplement that will get you off the couch and into the gym, both of these will work great. In regards to ingredients, they are very different, but in reality both provide the same kind of energy and motivation you need when entering your work-out facility, this is why.
- The C4 Extreme’s creatine nitrate serves as the main ingredient in allowing you to maximize reps and muscle pumps when looking for that perfect workout
- Jack3ed features ingredients that allow you to spend more time in the gym, without crashing afterwards while also eliminating fatty fillers that are included in so many energy supplements today.
