So...Long-term visitor to this site for diet and training info and previously maintained a training log on the female part of this site Figure Athletes which no longer seems to exist so posting here this time round.
After a long break from the gym, 3 years or so, but with a decent high intensity bodyweight program and other activities in the meantime to maintain some strength, I'm hitting the gym hard once more with figure-athlete level physique building as a long-term goal.
Building strength and mass is my short-term goal over the next 3 months.
I stand at 5'3" and currently weigh in at 118lbs and estimate myself at 20% bf.
I'm going to start with using a Leg, Push, Pull program 3 days a week in the gym with 3-4 big exercises a session. No cardio for now, but will start to add in 1-2 sprint HIIT sessions a week further down the line once the initial body-shock of heavy training is over.
Started the progam last week and ironed out moves / weights, so this is my second week and I'll post / track workouts from now on.
So today's leg session...
Back squats @60kg (132lbs) 9, 8, 8, 7
Bulgarian Split Squats @20kg (44lbs) 10, 9, 8, 8
Stiff Leg Deadlifts @45kg (100lbs) 10,9,8,8
Barbell Hip Thrusts @35kg (66lbs) 12, 12, 10.
112 - P
58 - F
130 - C
Will add in more info on me as I go along. Any thoughts, suggestions, hellos welcome!
