She wrote ‘And on Saturday we hydrate! 45 mins of back & shoulders today .. here are a few of my exercises’.
‘Remember, lifting weights doesn’t have to mean getting big. For us ladies we would have to lift an incredible weight and eat allot of food to build and bulk’.

Adding: ‘All helping towards my lifts on Dancing On Ice where upper body strength is key to support each other’.
