Welcome my new client Amy.
She's in her early 20's, and wants to compete in the OCB Eastern Regional bodybuilding show. She plans to do figure. Her bodybuilding show is on April 14, 2012, which is 13 weeks, 5 days away.
Amy's Figure Journey
Amy has weight trained for two months so there are specifics we will work on to accomplish her goal.
At this point our challenge is to build muscle and lose fat during contest prep. Building muscle on her nutrition plan is possible, but very difficult since dieting is catabolic-- breaks down tissue.
Fat dispersment in women is usually higher in the abdomen and lower body. Amy carries her weight here.
She is 5'2, 127 lb. and @21% body fat. We will take measurements this upcoming weekend.
Our goal is to build and spare Amy's muscle, while creating a leaner physique. Amy is leaner in her upper body so my goal is to salvage muscle through her shoulders and back, but to reduce fat in her lower body and abdomen.
We are working on her nutrition program in order to achieve this. I did not create her initial nutrition program, but thought the calories too low so I increased them for now.
We have changed her weight training program, also.
Points to work on
Amy has a great frame to work with, and has very good potential. She has square shoulders, a small upper waist, shapely legs, and excellent calves. Amy is also very determined.
