So I decided to move my log over from Powerful Women, as I wanted to stop identifying my workout routine on trying to cope with migraines. I still have them, but they're passe` and I'm moving on.
Current stats: 5'6", 165lbs
History: Threw shot put/discus/hammer/weight/javelin for 8 years. Have done karate my entire life. Started roller derby this past month, and will be trying out (again) for the USA bobsledding team.
I like being powerful and built like a wall, but I also like being defined, not carrying around fat. When I started training for my first tryout, I was 153lbs. Since then, I packed on just over 10lbs of muscle and became much stronger and faster. So that's the goal: explosive and powerful.
