Before, a few months prior to heavy lifting:
170 lbs. Size 12 dress. Approximately 30% BF.
Waist = 33 inches
Hips = 41 inches
Under bust = 38 inches
Thighs = 23 inches
Arms = 13 inches
Now, 5 months after starting a progressive loading heavy lifting program:
151.8 lbs. Size 4 dress. Approximately 20% BF.
Waist = 27 inches
Hips = 36.5 inches
Under bust = 31 inches
Thighs = 21.5 inches
Arms = 11 inches
17.2 lbs lost. 4 sizes lost. Approximately 10% BF lost. 21 inches (and counting) lost.
Still think heavy lifting will make you "bulky?" Think again.
Heavy lifting ladies, I invite you to post YOUR before and after pics. Maybe, just maybe, we can attempt to snuff out this, "WEIGHT LIFTING WILL MAKE ME HYOOOOGE" myth.
