I found the right physique [Lina Jade] that I would love to achieve a similar look
what workouts are needed ? would 4 - 5 days a week lifting [as heavy as I can] be sufficient and I'd like
to incorporate a couple of days a week of running for cardio fitness...mines shocking...
I mainly want to stick with free weights [barbell dumbells - lifting heavy] and stuff I can use at home, like chin up bar,
body weight exercise like push up etc...
At the moment I am just plain skinny and want to up my eating habits to look better
and get away from stick thin fragile look...into Lina Jade look ...well similar... of
course I won't have the exact same look but want the fit muscular strong look...[pictured]
her muscular arms and her glutes thighs are what I like...
what about some of the exercises she is doing here...[obviously not the gymnastic acrobatic stuff ]
would something like this workout be good ?
Any help appreciated thanks...

I'd prob put this in the women bodybuilding section, tbh you prob won't get much answers in here."No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training...what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable."

As odd as this might sound, I would contact her and ask her what SHE does to look like that. It won't be perfect, but it is probably a good starting point to work from. I'm sure that she will be happy to talk to you, as it has been my experience that very few people in the fitness and strength industry dislike talking to people about their passion and profession.

Its not all that complicated, but will require commitment. Muscle gains and fat loss occur in the kitchen. Which means that aside from lifting 4-5 times per week (kudos on shooting for heavy weights!) and doing heart healthy cardio, you will need to have a sound, calory-sufficient diet to generate lean mass growth, maximize recovery and try to keep fat at bay as much as possible.
U need to figure out ur current caloric intake (daily) and slowly increase from there (say, 350 cals more per day...) Use the mirror, scale, clothe fitting, etc, as tools to assess your progress.MY LOG: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=119730301

Thanks for the responses...I've actually contacted her today so will see if I can get an idea...I'm pretty sure on some exercises that will get the glutes and thighs going...squats lunges using barbells etc it's just putting all the body exercises together that will change my overall look in a balanced way...
