Jelena Abbou - IFBB Figure Competitor and Fitness Model
Beautiful IFBB Figure Competitor and Fitness Model- Jelena Abbou
IFBB Figure Competitor, IFBB Bikini Competitor, fitness model and certified personal trainer Jelena Abbou (Jelena Djordjevic) was born on April 2nd, 1977 in Gornji Milanovac, Serbia.
Although she was born and raised in Serbia, she now lives in the United States, having left Serbia when she was twenty years old.
Jelena has a long competition history going all the way back to 2001 when she came in fifth at the NPC Womans Extravaganza in her very first competition.
At five foot six and 118 pounds, Jelena is another of these rare women that has a build that combines sleekness with musculature.
She's not too big, and she is not too small, actually like a cross between fitness legends Rachel McLish and Cory Everson.
You could say that Jelena is right in the "Goldilock's Zone".
Jelena has always been a figure competitor, but lately she has competed in a few IFBB Bikini contests.
But that didn't turn out too well for her so she went back into IFBB Figure competitions.
As far as looks go, I think Jelena could easily go into print modeling if she ever gets tired of Figure.
And she kinda has now...
Jelena's Usual Diet
Two protein shakes; one after workout and another after her last meal of the day
Oats and sweet potato for carbs
Chicken, fish, 99% lean turkey, lean beef (once in a while) and egg whites for protein
Almonds and peanut butter for fats
