This is a weightlifting progress post: be aware that I'm still firmly in the "beginner" camp.
If this doesn't interest you, stop reading here, please In all honesty, I only started going to the gym because I was trying to get in my gym buddy's pants - but I got hooked on lifting somewhere along the way. I made an introductory post here at the beginning of July. Reddit female fitness am still working on my big original goals but I am a hell of a lot closer now! My routine is pretty straightforward: I go to the gym 3 times a week. Each session I do deadlift or squat; bench or OHP; and dips or pull-ups I alternate between each of these pairs. When I can do five sets of five reps at a given weight, I add five pounds and begin again.
The exception is deadlift, in which I've been recently doing less volume such as 1x5. I also do rows and occasionally do other assistance exercises, mostly tricep stuff. Age 26, 5'8'', lbs. My weight has stayed constant since I began lifting. Squat: 5x5 lb barbells; now at 5x5 Took me ages to get my form down right, and it's still my weakest lift. OHP: 5x5 35 to 5x3 I've been stuck at 55 for a while - but it helped to switch around my routine so that I'm not doing it right after I deadlift. Challenges: My biggest one is sleep. I had always thought I had a pretty healthy diet and a good relationship with food, so it surprised me to discover how much diet-related bullshit I had internalized.
For example: for a long time, if 2 pm rolled around and I realized I hadn't eaten anything yet that day, my first reaction wouldn't be "Montereyo, you idiot"; it would be, "Gee, good for you! I also load up on protein. I love cottage cheese, unlike most of you here I assure you that I own more attractive underpants than these, but they sure are comfortable.
I'm still a beginner; I still have a long way to go. But at least I'm on my way! Thanks, you all - and feedback is appreciated! Edit, since so many people have asked: it's not a scar, it's a birthmark. Edit 2: No, I don't do any cardio. And I'm not actually any tanner in the second pictures, it's just a combination of different camera and different time of day, I think.
I second this. Proof that toning and sculpting are myths, and that simply doing the work and eating healthy make you look amazing! Great job. Conversely, the OP owes me a new monocle, and a new keyboard if the coffee smell doesn't come out. We have very similar body types and the change looks amazing. I was honestly scared to start weightlifting but I started doing crossfit workouts with some of my martial arts friends about a year ago, but it's only gotten consistent in the past couple of months due to a recent move.
I have a similar body type to OP's before picture, but hopefully with a little more time and more focus on my dietI'll be Reddit female fitness to achieve hertoo! Weightlifting is actually really fun, in my opinion, and I'm someone who dislikes running and was never very athletic as a. Get a friend and go for it. You feel great afterwards and maybe you and I will both look like the OP soon :. You will realize a whole bunch of positive effect besides just looking pretty, I say it's totally worth it!
Did you do any sort of cardio at all? If not, you're an amazing example of what straight-forward lifting and simple nutrition can do. How does it feel to be disgustingly masculine and bulked-out now that you've been lifting heavy for six months? What's the best way to convince my wife that she should lift too? Well, sometimes when I try to scratch my chin I knock myself out by accident with my massive biceps. Luckily my tree-trunk thighs keep me upright. I've learned to adapt.
It depends on what your wife is like. Try to get her to the gym during slow times at Reddit female fitness - it's less intimidating to learn when there are fewer people around. Show her stumptuous. She's intimidated by weighted exercises, but now that we've worked on slowly building up her core strength and wow, have her abs become impressiveshe's giving weighted exercises a try.
Two weeks ago, she went and did her ab workout without me there, which was a big step for a self-conscious new female lifter. To convince your wife to lift, you Reddit female fitness to show her good evidence, like this thread and other studies that show how weight-lifting is good for health and WILL NOT make her bulky.
