I have a female client in her low 30’s that is an ex gymnast and is about 5’3″. She naturally has larger quads, hamstrings (thighs) and glutes due to her previous years of gymnast training. Her goal is to decrease the size & increase muscular definition in those areas by doing total body strength workouts. However, she’s worried about doing too much strength training because she hypertrophy’s easy in those areas. She’s wanting to exercise atleast 4 times/week but I’m hesitant on the exercise volume as I don’t want her legs to get bigger. I know nutrition is a big piece of this and it appears she currently has that in check. Any good suggestions to help design a 3-4 day/week plan for this person would be appreciated. Thank you!
I would suggest doing strength work on the other areas of the body and let the legs rest for a while. Avoid strength work on the legs and see how it goes. This is what we call body shaping. I wish you both best of health.Thank you,
