A short intro.
I’m a 58 year, overweight woman who hasn’t exercised for 30 years. In the last three months I have started going to the gym and discovered lifting - and I love it.
I started at about 40kg and am now lifting 65 kg (5 reps for 4 sets) . This week with my trainer I’m going to try to see what my max lift is.
I don’t know anyone else my age doing this so have no idea how I compare. I would really like to have a one year goal for lifting but not sure how much to aim for. Can anyone help. I’m currently 90kg but need to lose 10kg.
I still need to build my basic fitness as well, so I deadlift two times a week and also have a general “fat burning” training two times a week.
Anyway, just a quick hello. While getting older means you lose some of your self consciousness, i still feel a bit like a fish out of water in the gym - as I’m always the oldest and fattest in the room.
