My name is Rebecca Conlin and I’m planning on competing in my first figure competition this time next year. I have a long way to go still but have a few questions to ask.
Ive been squatting and deadlifting really heavy, on top of this I have to do spin classes as part of my job. The problem is on my lower body I seem to put on muscle very easily for a girl. Ive spoken to Carly Thornton, who seems to have the same problem. Ive been advised to lower my weights and do 15-20 reps to slim and define whilst lifting heavy on my upper body to balance myself out. Ive also been advised not to eat as much protein on the days I have to spin to prevent my quads bulking too much. Ive been doing lots of hill sprints for conditioning too.
I really just want some advice on exercises, repetition maxes and best cardio exercises to really get my legs and bum leaner.
I have about 14lbs of bodyfat to lose too to get in perfect performance shape for next year… ???
