I will try to keep this short and too the point.
I am 25.
5'8 and 127 pounds.
BF-18%-22% not sure because the gym said one thing and my scale says another.
Bust - 31
Waist - 25 or 26
Hips - 34
Butt - 36
Thighs - 21 *ugh*
Calf - 14
Bicep (thinnest part) - 9 inches
I am a dancer and I need to slim down. I got down to 115 pounds a couple years ago and from visual assessment was leaner then I am now. I had to take some time off and now I need to get back into top form. It has been suggested that 110 - 115ish would be a good weight for me (dancing wise).
I can't get bulky. I would ideally like to lose a couple inches off my thighs and obviously lower my body fat.
What I would like to know is what type of program, you the experts would recommend. What BF% is a realistic goal that can be maintained? How much cardio? What type of results can I expect... How long to reach my goal? Currently I have been doing too much cardio I think (1-3 hours a day) with biceps/ back, shoulders/ chest, and legs/ triceps. I am also trying to do a couple yoga and pilates classes per week. I dance 5 - 6 days a week.
I am planning on getting a personal trainer... but won't be able to until Feb or March because of finances. I would really like some advice and motivation to keep me going in the meantime.
Thank you so much!
