My girlfriend has decided its time to get in shape, and has asked me for advice on what she should do in the gym. If it were a guy asking for help, I would have no problem shelling out some tips but unfortunately I don’t swing that way, and don’t know much about female body building. So I have come to your wonderful forum hoping to get some of your expertise.
My girlfriend is around 5'5". She wont ever tell me her weight but I will guess its around 130-135. She's not overweight by any means, but she’s not skinny either. She has large breast and decent sized butt. From what I understand, she is interested in losing fat (duh!), and toning up, rather then putting on lots of muscle like some of you talented woman.
From what I see, her weaknesses would be her legs(especially hamstrings and quads), butt, tummy, and triceps. These observations are obviously based on weaknesses regarding fat. With respect to muscle, well I don’t want to name all 600+...
What exercises do you recommend? Also how many sets and at what reps? She is a beginner to lifting so I want to keep it simple at first and then work her up to more complex workouts.
Thanks for taking the time to read. I look forward to using your advice to better her workout routine.
