Hi ladies, I have a question for all of you.
Ive been training my girlfriend, and having her do Rippetoe’s starting strength. She’s only been on it for a couple of weeks but is already getting fairly strong.
I would like to progress her to some circuit training like EDT, to help her increase muscle mass a bit, and decrease fat.
But I think its important to have a good strength base, and know the form well before making this switch.
For a guy, I would say its a good idea that he be able to squat and/or deadlift 1.5x his BW, and bench his BW, and do at least 5-10 strict pullups.
Currently she is 5’4" @ 125lbs.
Here’s her lifts for 3-4 sets of 5.
DB bench 30’s
Seated Row 60
1-leg squats 3x5 (near paralell)
I was thinking getting her deadlift to her BW, DB bench to 40’s, and her rows to 80.
What do you ladies think?
