Hi everybody...I humbly request your expertise! Bodybuilders especially!

Since December, I've been working with a personal trainer 4x/week. The original goal was to gain weight & I'm happy to say I have. I've put on 15 lbs since I've started. Also, since I know it matters in this case, I am female.

My body fat percentage, however, has gone up. I'm not happy about that. Also, my muscles don't look any different nearly at all - so I'd have to say my goal has shifted. I want to look more muscly and lose body fat, especially in my legs.

Currently, I go to the gym 4x/week. One day is for legs, another for back, another for chest/tricep, and another for shoulder/bicep. I do abs each time - and let me insert here that I have awesome abs anyway thanks to all the coughing I do <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> . I typically do 3x15, although sometimes my trainer increases the weight for each set and I do fewer reps. After weight training, I try to do up to 20 minutes of cardio, but honestly sometimes I'm exhausted and just go home, or only do 10.

As for diet - I've developed gastroparesis, so eating isn't always easy, but reglan has helped me from throwing up all the time. After I work out I drink a vitamin water, and then 30 minutes after working out I drink a protein shake (cytogainer, 40g of protein). I've also dumped my Mt. Dew habit and tried to cut out high-fructose corn syrup as much as possible (this is over the past month).

So, O Fitness Gurus, what can I be doing differently? I would appreciate any help any of you can offer me!

Hm I wonder why someone named "luv2run" suggests that! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border="0"> Okay I'll stop being so lazy and get on that.

Do you do anything specific for your diet that you can recommend?

Some people just have longer, leaner looking muscles that don't bulk up easily. Also, working your legs only once a week and doing minimal cardio isn't going to give you defined legs IMO. Exercises that define the muscles (i.e. pilates, dance class, yoga) might help you get the look you want or at least improve what you have. You may find you don't need to lose much fat if you tone up more. I used to be a ballet dancer and I have long legs so I never bulked up like stockier built women. Pilates is a favorite of ballet dancers because it develops long, lean and strong legs.

Good for you about the high fructose corn syrup!

Thanks bonniebaby. I'm a little intimidated by those classes...once I feel a little stronger, and steadier on my feet, I'll definitely explore those options. Vanity is an incredible motivator.

my best answer is to pump up more protein to build muscle. If you take whey protien shake should be measusred to either a 2 oz mix but what i would do is take 2 oz when you wake eat breakfast 2 hours later which you could work out inbetween if you want but then have a 2 oz protien after lunch after dinner and before bed. also the way muscle works is that to build and bulk you need to let that muscle have a break thats whay you generally done't work out the same group every day because you are breaking down the muscle and the healing the next day is what gradually grows it. now being a woman and all you probly would like small but hard tone muscle so you don't want to give that muscle group time to heal so you need to work every group everyday it can be a small work out just to work the muscle on your off day with your trainer. I also would say that cardio isn't that important I never do alot just some walking which is better fo ryou than anything else cardio wise.
I had much better result with a female trainer who knew the workings of the female body too. when I had da male trainer he made me look like a guy.
hope this helps

coincidentally i just started a supervised weight training program. My trainer recommends short sessions that are high intenstity (HIT- high intensity training). He swears that its the only way to build up muscles quickly. I'm sure you can find more info/books about it on the web. I just started the program so i'll keep you posted if its working.

Watch out for the vitamin water-it has a ton of sugar-try more cardio and eat five high protein meals daily-although i think it can b hard for guys to give females exercise advice

Hello just a quick note if you are doing you BMI by a chart that is not a great way to do it because that is for an average person, To get you true BMI you need to get a caliper measurements done on the body fat. If you gained 15 of muscle your BMI will increase when using a BMI chart

I would start off suggesting that you not be afraid of lower reps. I work in the 8-12 range meaning that when the last rep arrives, it's the last one I am able to do for the set. Or, if anything, leave only 1 or 2 in the tank for that set. Occasionally, you should go as low as 6 or even 3.

Also, it's better to stick with free weights and compound movements for the majority of the work being done. As far as gaining size, remember to do slow negatives and not just drop the weight fast in order to start the next rep. I also avoid the locking out of reps during sets in order to maintain tension on the muscle and not transfer it to joints.

Protein intake as a general rule should be at least 1 gram per pound of bodyweight minimum spread over 5-6 meals a day.

<br />Also, it's better to stick with free weights and compound movements for the majority of the work being done. As far as gaining size, remember to do slow negatives and not just drop the weight fast in order to start the next rep. I also avoid the locking out of reps during sets in order to maintain tension on the muscle and not transfer it to joints.
<br />
<br />Protein intake as a general rule should be at least 1 gram per pound of bodyweight minimum spread over 5-6 meals a day.

Forgot to ask. Since you say your bodyfat has gone up, has your diet changed at all to make this occur? I only ask since a "tone" looking muscle is a matter of having low bodyfat. Same thing as carving out definition. The lower the bodyfat, the more definition will show.

not everyone thrives with that method. many people will only gain strength with low reps/high weights. ive found i do better with higher reps than i do with lower for building mass.
