I’m a 25 year old female medical student who started training a year and a half ago. Before then I was way too into watching trashy tv while on the elliptical, and not eating enough! Luckily I met a great guy who loves to lift, write training programs, and grill huge hunks of red meat. I love T-Nation and reading the blogs, so I’m hoping to get some new ideas and feedback and just enjoy interacting with other women who love to lift.
Currently: 135 lbs bodyweight at 5’6"
Bench 1RM: 105
Squat 1RM: 155
Deadlift 1RM: 165
My wonderful boyfriend writes programs for us and our other training partner, we lift 4x/week with 2 upper body and 2 lower body days. Today I did upper body solo because of the holiday weekend screwing up our lifting schedules.
10x3 Barbell Pin Press @55% 1RM (did 65 lbs hoping for a future 1RM around 120)
4x10 cable row with supinated grip (65lbs, pausing at each row to squeeze that back)
(alternating set with 4x8 facepulls)
Finishing super set:
2 x Chins to failure, 2x10 skullcrushers with the EZ bar, 2x10 slideboard bodysaws
Chins to failure for me is like 2-3 reps, I just started being able to chin, and I love doing it! Especially when it makes guys stop doing silly bicep curls and watch, haha. I’m just pining for the days when I can slap on the belt and do 'em weighted.
Post training snack was sweet potato with cinnamon and scoop of chocolate Metabolic Drive. Yummy combo.
