Training a female
Hey guys i've been working out for sometime now, i've helped a few friends get into it by showing them different exercise methods, i might not be the best or most knowing person in the world but i feel like i have a good routine for myself, i'm talking to a girl who wants to train with me and i've never trained a girl before, my last gf had a high metabolism and could eat whatever she wanted and not put weight on so she never came to the gym with me....does anyone have any good resources for reshaping the female body, this girl is in shape as well but not happy with how she looks....even though i like the way she looks...any direction you can point me in will help

If she wants fat loss then ]url=http://rosiesmusclerevolution.webs.co m/fat_loss.htm]The 3 Keys to Fat Loss[/url] is an excellent source. If she is a beginner it will help as well. Remember that the key to "reshaping" the body lies in nutrition and exercise, with one factor more dominant than the other in most people.

I agree with Rosie. Train her the same as you. My wife would train with me and never did "girly" stuff. Bench press, deadlifts, squats, typical BB'er routine. Some people thought she was hardcore, even though she wasn't as strong as the roided up chicks.

It makes sence since a girls body is different from a mans hormone wise, so they won't bulk up like a guy. They will juste tone up and get curves lol. Your rutin should be fine but less weight ofcorse.

thanks for the input guys, i'm just going to use my routine and instead of going down to low reps keep her at about 8-12, she wants to do tons of cardio and doesn't really want to listen when i say that she needs weight training as well for all the normal reasons but i'll be able to get her to listen lol

Ya I have been lifting with a girl and she does almost everything I do except deadlifts and she modifies some lifts she doesn't feel comfortable with. I even have her do DC with me lol. It is def pretty hot seeing her workout lol.

Introduce her to the weight room and tell her to stay away from the cardio section. Somewhere down the line guys of many generations will be thanking you. Your doing mankind a favor.

Train her as you would train, I hate when I see chicks doing like 10lbs on the leg press because they don't wanna get "huge" such a damn myth. Girls training like dudes is sexy as hell!!!

she's training right next to me, still has a cardio mind set, so i tell her she has to lift with me for aleast 45 minutes and she can do cardio, the one trainer in my gym used to be mr. pennsylvania and he told me what everyone's saying, have her lift like i would, have her go as heavy as possible the only difference is, when i'm toying with going heavier and heavier each time i work a muscle part, find a weight that is changing her body, once it stops then go to a heavier weight, he also said have her do real lifts like skull crushers and not pull backs for triceps because the crushers will tone her up quickly then when she's nice and toned the tricep pull backs will help add definition, that was after he saw me doing them at the end of the routine because i feel like they help keep a nice pump in my tri's at the end of the workout
