New to the forum and app. So hi everyone!

I hate cardio, so I don't do it. Well, I do very little of it. I don't need to lose weight (BMI 19, BF 22%).

I want to build muscle, and strength. I recently started the program New Rules Of Lifting for Woman. I'm on week 2 and I like it, but I think I need something more intense.

Who's down for the challenge?? I need someone who is somewhat knowledgable. I have some knowledge but would love help from someone with heavy lifting experience.

I'm very knowledgeable of heavy lifting. Are you familiar with supersets?

Supersets is a burn out, you take no kind of breaks. You just go from one workout to the next and then repeat it. Supersets is for strength and it's very intense.

No I am not. Right now the program I am doing is- total body 3x per week increasing weight with each workout. So there's plenty of recovery time, but it's a super slow program. 6 months.

Hopefully I'm responding correctly. Yes, I am doing total body 3xs per week. Mostly free weights/ body weight...no machines. Increasing weight every workout, decrease reps. Right now I'm stressing because I'm away on biz wotkout my protein!!

Increase reps with similar weights 8*10*12reps per exercise. If ur in stress take some energy drinks during exercise.

How does your routine look like?

Exercises with how many sets and reps?

A full body routine is a great way to start and to become alot stronger. Specially when you focus on compound lifts and going heavy.

This is exactly what I am doing. Dead lifts, squats, lunges, presses, push ups...Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Started with 2 sets of 15, the program and plan is to increase sets/weight but decrease reps. Goal is to become stronger.
