Forever looking like I lift heavy even if I don't 🤷🏻♀️
2 questions I've been getting a lot lately;
1. How did I get my legs to look like this? Well it's probably like 99% genetics first of all. That includes the fact that my legs are SO SHORT, therefore the amount of muscle I have on my legs is more compact and bulks together. Someone with the same amount of muscle but longer legs would have a totally different look going on. But with that aside, I did lift really heavy for a while which included squats and deadlifts with a lot of weight which really made them bulk up a bit. And I have always, before and after I did power lifting workouts, done a lot of leg focused accessory workouts.
Which leads me to the next question....
2. What type of workouts am I doing now? Right now I'm doing a lot of lower weight high rep exercises. The heart rate is up. I am usually SWEATING and dying my whole workout. I love it. I'm also incorporating a lot of plyos between sets. And I'll have fast paced HIIT circuit days. @carissa4health
made me a couple workout plans before we figured out what we needed to do to get this boosted a bit. I workout about 5 days a week give or take. And other than warming up for ten minutes on the stair master before each workout I don't do any steady state cardio. I do HIIT after my workouts once or twice a week, but mainly I keep my workouts high paced enough that it's basically cardio on it's own!
Hope that's helpful and I'll do my best to answer any other questions you might have below☺️
PS yes I know I don't have boobs, I'm forever wishing squats for boobs was a thing, but it's not! So I'll take what I can get😂
