A Day in the Life: Figure Competitor Ashley Toms With her bodybuilding competition just two months away, we asked Ashley to walk us through a typical day in her training and nutrition plan. The schedule of seven to eight meals and two or three workouts on six days per week is intense, but "it's a science," says her coach and husband Steve Toms. "Ninety percent of success comes from the diet; it's the No. 1 thing that separates a top figure competitor from the rest. But it's usually the hardest part for a first timer. If you lack discipline, this is not the sport for you." Ashley agrees but adds, "It's hard but I love a challenge!"

There are several things you can do to get your head right before you meet any muscular women at the gym, bodybuilding shows, through friends or online.
