GAINS: Girl Power

20150317_194139

I’ve always been a big advocate for women going beyond the treadmills and yoga mats and doing some legitimate strength training.  This is Sami, a relatively new member to The Cave.  She enjoys video games, zombies, ranch dressing, and most recently, weightlifting.

I’ve trained a few girls at The Cave, and there really are no major differences between male and female strength training routines.  The girls tend to be less available for workouts, so I usually focus on an upper body/lower body routine split instead of the chest/arms/back/legs split that I use for Brandon and me.

Sami has been quickly improving, perfecting her forms in various movements and making big strides in how much weight she can handle.  She’s always willing to stick to a routine until the end, and she isn’t willing to cut corners.  I have a ton of respect for the ladies of The Cave who choose to better themselves, as well anyone else who makes that commitment.
