6 months, NO cardio, NO weight lost.
Here’s what she did: “My routine is pretty straightforward: I go to the gym 3 times a week. Each session I do deadlift or squat; bench or OHP; and dips or pull-ups (I alternate between each of these pairs). When I can do five sets of five reps at a given weight, I add five pounds and begin again.”
Weight lifting FTW!
Ah, this is user montereyo of reddit.
In 6 months, she did a recomposition of her body by:
- eating like normal but just included more protein in her diet
- staying the exact same weight (137lbs at 5’8”)
- lifting heavy weights with the program Starting Strength
- Squat 85lbs 5x5
- Bench 75lbs 5x5
- Deadlift 140lbs 1x3
- And didn’t do ANY cardio AT ALL
The weight on the scale means nothing, but your amount of muscle does. The answer to a slim body is not always weight loss and dieting. And of course, LIFTING HEAVY DOES NOT MAKE YOU BULKY.
