Hey, I’ve been reading articles and the forums on the site for some time and since I now need some advice the time has arrived to post something.
A bit about myself:
Female, 29 years old. 156 cm, 54 kilos. Fairly strong but still a long way to go to what I want to achieve. Main goal is strength. I do plenty of sports outside the gym - rock climbing mostly with a bit of martial arts. In the gym, I focus on strength training. It used to be that my strongest body-part were my legs however due to an injury I sustained some time back I am very careful about what I do so that has gone down (I’ll admit it’s more a question of fear than of actual logic). Currently my strongest body-part is my back - I can pull down almost 3 times my body-weight. Before I continue gaining strength, I would like to get rid of the extra fat that I have. After my injury I gained a lot of weight, however in the past year I have lost most of it.
Recently though, I’ve noticed that I’ve reached a plateau of sorts. Here is an idea of what my current diet looks like - 150 grams protein daily, less than 50 grams of carbs daily (most of that is around my workout) and the fat that there is in the food I eat (mostly tuna and beef). Once a week I have a cheat half-day.
Any suggestions? Any more info needed to make suggestions?
