StrengthAddicts: Welcome to StrengthAddicts, please tell us a little about yourself.
Ashley Bowden: Hey all, my name is Ashley Bowden, I’m 29, 5’5”, 119lbs,
and my stage-weight is 113lbs. I’m from Orlando, FL.
StrengthAddicts: How did you discover weight-training?
Ashley Bowden: I have always been into fitness since high school and I am a
physical therapist assistant so I truly enjoy watching what the body can achieve. But I
really got into it more so last year after following fitness people on Instagram and
4being inspired to do more.
StrengthAddicts: What's your favorite workout day and why?
Ashley Bowden: My favorite workout is dumbbell shoulder press. The reason is
because I love trying to push more weight each time! And who doesn’t love seeing
the muscle striations after shoulder day! Fun note: I never worked shoulders until
Feb last year because I was afraid of looking “manly”, what a myth!
StrengthAddicts: Do you have any contests in mind for 2019?
Ashley Bowden: Yes! June 15th I will be competing in the Mid Florida Classic in hopes
to get Nationally Qualified. If I don’t make the cut I will be doing a show July 20th.
Then once I qualify I will be heading to Nationals in Miami in November.
