Shey Webb - IFBB Bikini Pro

* Shey won her Pro card at the 2017 NPC Universe. She doesn't let Lupus slow her down in any way!

Shey: I am 27 years old. Pitbull advocate. 4 yrs ago I was diagnosed with Lupus. I have 1 dog. I train at MMFitness and started a meal prep cafe called "No Excuse Cafe".

Diet: Every season my diet has been different. This season for precontest my diet stayed the same till about 2 days before the show. I was consuming about 1500 calories 150g of protein, 115g carbs, and 58g fat. With having Lupus I don't try many plans. I don't want to do anything that will stress my body out. Stress is the main trigger for flare ups. I found being on a very low carb diet does not help with my Lupus triggers however.

My training consist of cardio in the morning 5days a week. 2 HIIT training days and 5 lifting days. I normally do all my lifting and HIIT in the evening. My HIIT consist of body weight and some weights. To me the diet part is easy. Training is the hardest because Lupus is unpredictable and I don't know if I'm going to wake up in pain or if it will be a normal day.

I have always been a shy person and still get nervous stepping on stage. What helps me to strut across the stage is thinking about all the people with Lupus or any auto immune disease that may be giving up or have given up. I want to show them that no matter what the doctor says you can still have a normal life and accomplish anything you would like.

I just competed at NPC Universe and everything ran so smooth and everyone was extremely helpful and courteous! Check ins are always fun meeting new people.

Being an athlete gave me my life back. I used to play volleyball and was a cheerleader but after being diagnosed with Lupus i lost all motivation and felt the pain was unbareable. The sport of bodybuilding has not only helped me physically but mentally as well

Currently I am planning my pro debut to be in my hometown Tampa! I have two shows in mind.
