After poking around on this site I’ve decided to start a public training log on this forum because I’m massively impressed by all you muscley women and men on here and I hope that you’ll take the time to look it over and tell me what I’m doing right/wrong/offer encouragement.
So today I took my measurements. Should have done it a month ago, but I decided to not postpone workingout because I didn’t have a measuring tape at the time. BTW, I’m 5’6".
I have gained 4lbs in the last month (I started at 122 and am now at 126). I feel that most of the change has been in my thighs, buttocks, and back, with a little noticeable change in my calfs. However, my thighs are growing so fast that they are dwarfing my calfs more and more each day. Therefore, I’m upping my calf exercises from 3 sets to 5 sets.
As of today around 1pm:
thigh-19in (in the middle)
around largest part of buttock-37in
waist-27 1/2 in
under bust-29 1/2 in
around shoulders- 40 1/2 in
bicep 9 3/4in
Today I was rushed for time, so I didn’t do my complete leg workout, but here’s what I did do:
95lb squat- 8x4x30sec rest
95lbs deadlift- 8x4x30 sec rest
45lb hang snatch into over-head lunge-
(I’m not sure how many total I did of these because I’m still working on my form and they fatique me much faster than I’d imagined when I assigned myself to learn them) I would guess I did around 20-25 total in increments of 4 and 5 with 10-30 second rests.
standing one-foot calf-raise- 15 (each foot)x2 (no rest
70lb seated calf-raise-10x2x30 sec pause followed by another set of 15 one-foot standing calf raises
20x2x30 stability ball and medicine ball (stability ball between legs and medicine ball held in hands overhead) air crunches
roman chair leg-raise 15x4x30
I will post progress pictures soon.
