@rachelizabethm: I lift HEAVY weights. I don’t mean that I grab the heaviest on the “wussy weight rack” (you know, the silver ones…). I mean, I love reading T-Nation and Men’s Fitness articles. I love the feeling i get when guys high five me cause they’ve “never seen a girl lift so much”. I love the empowerment of strength training! This photo shows the difference in my body from the beginning of my weight training career (before competing) and a recent photo (after weight training and proper nutrition had become a lifestyle for me). When I started, when I knew the benefites of lifting but didn’t know what I was capable of, I chose a weight I wanted to be able to lift and I attempted it. I then dropped down by 5 lbs at a time til I found something I could lift in form for 3-5-8 reps*. Not every time, but if I can lift something for more than 12 reps You better believe if I’m not glycogen-depleting or trying NOT to build fat torching lean muscle, my goal is gonna be to out lift most of the boys. ;) Why don’t I bulk up? Why do I still look like a girl with awesome girly curves I might add (hey, I’m proud of my hard work)? Read this free article and more on my site: http://bit.ly/1fe6CSs *Reps are not for every muscle group on every individual. In sculpting a body to be aesthetically symmetrical and shapely, different reps and types of training are crucial but vary based on the person. Seek advice from a certified and experienced trainer/physique coach for your personal recommendations/goals. #rachelelizabeth #causefitness
Added yesterday’s Race Bib and medal to my wall.
There is nothing like that sense of accomplishment.
I look at that wall and think; “Hell ya! Gotta Keep Kicking Ass.”
