hey girls, just got started actual weight lifting a few weeks ago. I have been a member of the gym for years, and have worked out regularly, but never pushed ‘real weight’.
So now I enlisted in the army, and I needed to gain weight. My first weigh in (im 5’2") was at 96lbs, and two weeks ago I weighed in at 101lbs. I need to be at 104lbs.
I have a severely ectomorphic bodytype, I have insane trouble gaining weight, hence the weight lifting, since maybe I can gain more muscle than I can gain fat, and have it help me in bootcamp also.
I’m following a hefty 3300 calorie/day diet, and I’m only very slowly gaining. I guess for most women this would be a blessing, not for me though
I’ve been lurking on this forum for a while now, and I find you ladies on here very inspiring, it makes me more confident!
I am open to any advice any of you might have, especially regarding my crazy metabolism and how to deal with that…
