savagecupcake's goals

I'm 26, 152 lbs, 5'11", 29" waist (um, and I'm a girl. so when I start posting dismal pullups, don't judge... blame my center of gravity)

I've been very active for most of my life (dance, running, trapeze), letting it slide a bit in the past few years (I still do yoga and run sometimes). I'm intrigued by simplefit's promise of being able to alter my body composition... and also I want to be in top form for when I start having kids. I hear they're a handful. Something about wanting to be fed? bah.

Anyway. Hi. I'm happy to be here, and looking forward to posting results that will blow you away. Any encouragement is greatly appreciated.

My goals:

27" waist
37" hips (this will require a significant change in my fat-muscle ratio)
I want to be able to execute three clean pullups in a row
50 REAL pushups. (I can do 25-30 at a time, from the toes, but I don't have full range of motion)

Thanks! I bought a chinup bar yesterday.

any thoughts on subbing jumping/scissor lunges for the squats? I want to work my glutes more than my quads, and I find with squats I only feel it in my quads.

I suppose you could if you wanted but it sounds more like you're not using proper squat form. Weight on heels (curling your toes upwards helps) and keep the glutes squeezed the entire time.
