About to answer some very common questions I've been getting!
How many days are you working out?
I used to do 6 days a week but now that I'm adulting, I've been doing 3-4 days. I plan to start being consistent with 5 days a week! I'll be doing two lower body days and the rest will be a mix of upper body
How many calories do you eat?
I haven't tracked my macros in years. I found that it wasn't sustainable for me and it drove me crazy. I just eat intuitively. Most of my meals are very healthy with a focus on balance between carbs, fats, and proteins. I would say my diet is high fats, moderate carbs, moderate proteins. I still meal prep my lunches for the weekdays and everything else is cooked fresh. I don't follow some juice diet or protein shake diet. My focus is on whole Nutritious foods
What are your lifts like?
I've been focusing mostly on my compound lifts and going heavy on those with moderate 6-10 reps. When I'm feeling tired, I'll do lower weight, higher reps. I go till failure on every set regardless of the exercise performed and the weight used. I find that this works for me in terms of hypertrophy and just feeling good about my lifts
What is your weight?
I'm sitting at 130lbs at 5'0. I've been at 130lbs for a while now. I weigh myself maybe twice a year because I like to access my progress based on my physical appearance rather than my weight
Do you have a cutting and bulking phase?
No. A lot of people like doing this but I don't care to bulk just because it's the winter and cut for the summer so I can have abs at the beach. I just find that silly. I do what I want based on how I'm feeling. I'm not going to do a bulk this winter but I will focus on gaining strength and just eating a healthy and balanced diet. Research shows time and time again that caloric restriction increases longevity. This isn't to say that you need to be eating in a deficit but overeating is bad in the long run
