First pic was taken in February, middle pic taken in May, and third pic was taken today! So happy to see my legs have finally leaned out more because that’s definitely a tough area for me. I didn’t change up anything in my routine to make my legs lean out, just stuck to the plan and KEPT PATIENT and slowly but surely it happened.
Throughout this entire weight loss phase my workouts have not changed- I’ve been following a powerlifting program (so tons of HEAVY compound movements) eating an average of 1900 calories a day, doing steady state cardio three times a week for 20 minutes, and I’ve been getting about 10k-15k steps a day. Also to answer a commonly asked question- I hardly train abs! By improving my body composition through lots of heavy lifting, my ab definition has improved without really working them much. So my top tips for making a transformation is:
1. Lift hard and heavy and stick to basic compound movements! No stupid variations of things lol, the basics are going to benefit you most.
2. Be patient!!! Eat to fuel your workouts (no super low calorie bs) and focus on getting stronger and over time you will see results. Don’t under eat! If you eat and train like an athlete you will look like one. This isn’t a quick fix diet it is a lifestyle.
Ps. I couldn’t care less which one of these pics you like best, so keep your “you looked better before” opinions to yourself. I like how I looked in the middle pic but I like how I look now better ✌🏼.
