I wasn’t sure where to post, I fit into a few categories…female, over 35…
I used to read a lot on here and did lifting, although never followed a specific programme. Anyway, I injured my shoulder, and now two operations later, and far too much time, I want to get back to it. Next month I should be ready to able to start lifting again, and I’m after advice where to begin.
I’ve lost all strength (generally through not doing anything, but particularly in my left arm), and I’ve put on body fat (which makes me sad ) I’ve got a proper jelly belly now. I mean, I’m far from fat, I’m 5ft 3 and weigh 51kg, it’s just that in comparison to how I was, I’m very wobbly!! haha
I was thinking about doing Starting Strength. What does everyone think? or are there any better ideas? I want to do the usual things, lose the fat, but get stronger. I’d like to get bigger with visible muscle too.
I have a squat rack, bench and loads of weights.
