My girlfriend does the following 5x5 M-W-F routine ABA, BAB, ABA etc:
Barbell hip thusts
So, the question is - how much weight should she be adding each time? The row/bench/press now are already starting to get quite heavy for her and she is only lifting 44lb/20kg (she has been adding 5.5lb/2.5kg per session to everything). She weighs 110lb/50kg.
She has also been having trouble with, what I think is, overtraining. A lack of motivation etc. This is, again IMO, because she doesn’t eat correctly so isn’t recovering quickly enough. Tonight I suggested she could either try changing to doing Monday and Thurs with weights and Tues and Fri with HIIT and core work OR doing three times a week still but light-heavy-medium on M-W-F respectively. Any thoughts on which would be best (and why)? I know changing the diet is the best thing but this isn’t going to happen overnight sadly and will take time to break habits.
Finally, does anybody know of a Spanish speaking forum similar to this one?
Thanks for the help
