Hey guys I started working out with a new girlfriend with some of the workouts I learned on T-Nation.
Before she just did the treadmill and yogo BS at the gym so I got her onto some weight routines. She is thin, maybe 5'6" 110-115 pounds. She could probably stand to add a bit of muscle.
It's going pretty well (and I'm sure you know where this is going) but she saw some female figure competitor magazines and doesn't want to be 'big' like them. It's kind of silly because she seems to think that after doing 15 pound curls for a few weeks she is going to suddenly get ripped and look unfeminine.
She says things like 'I don't want my arms to get bigger than they are now'. 'I don't want to look like THAT'
Also the workouts we do together are HIIT type stuff from a Waterbury article so it's not even designed to bulk up. Is there an article link about how to deal with this or something I could show her? Advice?
I'd like to know 'Jamie' from the figure competitor's section's workout. Because I'm sure it includes some dead lifting and heavy upper body work. I don't think any woman would mind looking like her.
