    If you are taking 'relative' rest days, I think it's fine. You could do some lightweight stuff, go for a nice long walk, some mild cardio, a short jog, gentle bike ride, etc.

    You should do what you can physically in terms of exercise as long as it's not causing additional damage to your joints.

    LOL. 21 weeks is not enough time to build any sort of muscle. In that period of time she can *maybe* gain 2-4 lbs of muscle, along with an equal amount of fat. That's not enough muscle and then...

    No, calorie burn isn't going to be accurate with a HR like that.

    Most likely you are having some sort of tachycardia that is causing a fibrillation of one of the chambers.

    Sure, it's possible to have more muscular legs than the average person.

    But I would really question whether it's not fat. I am 5'3" and I would have pretty large thighs at 137 lbs.

    How did you...

    Hi. You have a nice variety of activities. I think that's great.

    I guess I would want to ask you what your goals are? Do you just want to be healthy and well-rounded? Gain muscle?

    I think, run it for 6-8 weeks and see how you progress. It sounds decent enough.

    Carbs are not an essential building block of muscle. But fat is critical in a lot of body functions.

    A good mass-building routine? I like PHUL. There are several.

    At your stats I wouldn't eat in a deficit at all. I'd definitely eat at least at maintenance until you're 100% healed up, but even then I can't imagine dieting at your stats. The 'softness' is...

    After my last extended illness I came back to a full body routine 3 x per week - light weight, higher reps. At first just easy - not strenuous. Get the blood flowing through all the muscles again. ...

    You can eat the same number of calories every single day. Don't overcomplicate it by changing it up all the time.

    Macros look fine.

    You're 21 and barely done growing. At what age were you toned at 105? 17? It's not even a healthy maintenance weight for your height.

    You will not get bulky. I WISH I could gain big hulking muscles, but it's super hard for women even when they try for a long time. Just doesn't happen.

    How tall are you?

    How much strength did you gain during your bulk?
    Did you eat consistently over maintenance for your bulk and did you follow a solid mass-building routine?

    If you really want to change your body, you need to stop fearing getting too big. Do a long slow bulk - gain around 1-2 lbs per month for several months - at 5'2" I wouldn't stop bulking until...

    Lots wrong here.

    Your calories are way way way too low.

    Jesus Christ.

    At 5'2" and 101 lbs you have no business trying to lose weight.

    You can't lose fat and gain muscle at the same time.

    If you aren't freaking ripped at 101 it's because you have...
