I have always enjoyed working out and tried to make it a part of my everyday life. I never thought I could ever compete. With the encouragement of my husband and owner on the gym, Mike Ferguson, I decided to try for my first show in March 2004.

Which contest has been your biggest success; which has had the most meaning to you?
Winning the Ohio State Championships overall my first year competing has the most meaning to me.
Please tell me something about your training routine (ie: how many days per week / training split /cardio, etc.)
I train at the Power Station Gym, in Middletown. My training routine consist of training 5 days a week. A different body part per day. The work outs very from week to week. One week high weight low reps, one week moderate weight 10-12 reps and one week low weight high reps 15 + reps. Off season cardio is three days a week and during contest training 40 min. twice a day.
What is your favorite exercise in the gym and which one you don’t like so much?
My favorite exercise in the gym in leg training. During contest time I will train legs twice a week.
Which body part is your best in your opinion?
My best body part would be abs and calves.
If you don’t mind would you give me some stats (best lifts and some body measurements)?
I have done a few power lifting meets. That was before I started training for bodybuilding. My best lift in the gym would be 225 bench and 315 squat.
What do you enjoy about training for competition....what do you enjoy about the 'off season'?
The part I enjoy about competing is watching my body changing week to week, the closer I get to the show. There really is no off season for training, however I do enjoy not having to measure my food and being of a strict time schedule with my meals.
Please describe a typical day in the life of Amy Sibcy.
My typical day consist of getting my daughters Abby and Emma up and off to school, get to the gym be 9:00am. After training and cardio, my real estate business consumes the rest of the day until the kids return form school and them we start after school activities, I really have no other hobbies other than bodybuilding. With bodybuilding, rentals and kids activities that is about all I have time for.
What do you enjoy most about the bodybuilding/fitness lifestyle?
What I enjoy most about the bodybuilding lifestyle is be healthy and staying in shape. I enjoy training because there is always room for improvement.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mike Ferguson, my trainer, and Robin Parker, who did my contest preparation/nutrition for the North Americans.
What are your competition goals or personal future goals?
My competition goals for next year will probably be the North Americans again and the Nationals 2007.
Amy does not do sessions or wrestling of any kind. Please don't ask!!
