Week 1 of Experiment


The Numbers:

Height: 5'6
Weight: 130
Waist (measured at the belly button): 30'
Thighs: 19' 1/2
Arms: 11' 1/4

So after 1 week we have lowered her exercise time from around 6 hours a week to 75 mins a week. Also increased her water intake throughout the day, and used recovery and icing sore muscles. Her workouts are much shorter in duration the intensity has increased. More based on resistance than cardiovascular training. She has been able to maintain her weight but lose half an inch on her thighs. She has no way to measure body fat as she owns no calipers or body fat analyzers but we can assume she dropped fat and replaced it with an equal amount of muscle, as her measurements have shown.
