Lately, I've been getting more and more people noticing how muscular I am. They're always really, really surprised.
I'm about 5'1" and I weigh around 92 lbs. I'm really top heavy which is kinda annoying but it makes up for a big chunk of my weight so that's okay.
I can carry around a person that is about 130~ lbs. I can piggyback a person that is about 200~ lbs.
People who know me in person are always asking me for advice on weight loss and gaining muscle and whatever but I really never know what to tell them.. I'm a naturally fit person and I didn't even start eating vegetables or other healthy foods up until like a year ago.
I'm considering actually beginning to work out, because although I'm somewhat fit, I personally feel like I could be in better shape (plus, I wanna get gunz, man).
I have pretty decent back muscles and abs (people comment on those two things pretty often), so I'm thinking of just doing some weight training, but would that be weird?
Do girls ever just do weights? Or should I go ahead and make a whole fitness routine where I switch off between weight training/cardio/ectect (I freakin' hate cardio, btw).
I think doing cardio would definitely help also, even if you hate it. Cardio is also probably the most important one out of the ones you listed. It's good for your heart and will help you stay active and in good shape. I'm not too sure about the whole training thing however, since I don't have one either.
Did you do anything particular to get your back muscles?
I have a really weak back/spine, which gives me really bad bad pains and someone told me that working out would help a big chunk of my back problems, I'm just not sure.. what to do? Some people suggested just simple crunches, but some people say they're pretty useless.
I've had back pains for the past 2 years because my boobs grew so rapidly (a/b cup to a d/dd in about a year). My boyfriend's cousin is a physical therapist and he helped me align my back a little. He told me that it would help tons if I just did simple back workouts without straining myself. He offered me to go visit him during his lunch hour and he would help me for free, but once I started doing stretches and stuff the back pain decreased dramatically.
There are lots of simple exercises that you can do for your back that should help back pain, just look them up. I don't know how to explain any of the ones that I did, except for when he sort of helped me align my back a bit.
Crunches give me back pains though.. Usually when I worked out my back I did it with machines. You have to be careful if you do ab workouts because a lot of them, if done incorrectly, can permanently damage your back.
You probably have low body fat hence the vascularity/ pronounced muscles.
Its also easier to build muscles on a smaller/ shorter frame since there's less frame to actually 'place' the muscles on.
