Hi everyone…I’m a beginner (male) and have seen some fantastic results over the last six months. Really pleased. Of course, the wife now wants in on the action (errr…the ‘looking good’ part). I’ve read a ton of articles on this site about how you have to lift weight to look good, whether male ore female. That countless hours of aerobics actually gives you the ‘skinny-fat’ look.
Which is what my wife has.
She practically starves herself, plus aerobics, to get the perfect body. And she still doesn’t have the ‘ass’ of the women on the magazines.
You get the idea.
I’ve sent her a few articles from this site and she wants me to show her how to do some weights.
Is a plan for a man suitable for a woman? Now before anyone jumps on me for being sexist, men and women obviously have different goals. She wants to look like the women on the cover of Fitness magazine (very lean, shapely).
I was thinking I’d focus on the ones I know – squats, deadlifts, bench press, military, chinups, rows…would this be correct? Any suggestions? Reps? Weights (to fail?)
And yes, her nutrition is terrible (I’m working on it!) as she doesn’t eat enough (though she does make sure she gets an okay amount of protein).
