ok, so I’m following a beginners program and here’s what I did this week, mind you, I’ve never lifted before, so I started light on monday, so I could make sure I could get my form right, and its the first excercise since baby c was born in feb.
last fri weigh:178
squats: 10/15 and 20/15
pushups: 15 (and my elbows hurt, did i do something wrong?)x2
seated row:20/15 then 30/15
stepups: 15/15 and then 20/15
deads: 30/15 and then 45/15
dumbbell shoulder press: 30/10 and then 30/15
widegrip lat pulldown: 30/15 and then 40/11
lunge: 30/15 and then 35/15 ( for the record, lunges suck way worse than squats)
crunches(sposed to use swiss ball, but i dont have one so did basic): 15x2
squats: 30/15 and then 35/15
seated row: 35/15 then 45/15
step: 30/15 then 40/15
accordin to the book, to get the most fat loss and muscle build I should eat 1g or protein for every lb of body weight, which made this week a goal of hitting 178g prot/day without goin over 2300 cal. (I know, scary, isnt it?) well, I can’t eat freakin 2300 cals a day!!! and I got prot to 160, is this good enough? how can I get more protein with out addin more calories, cuz I think I need to adjust that number too! ANY AND ALL ADVICE WELCOME!!
