Any advice on workouts/ how often to workout and meal plans to gain muscle, as I’m fed up of having a body that looks like a 10 year olds!!

(Just to say, I don’t think girls like me with petite bodies are bad at all! It’s just not the look I personally want!)

Start with 3 times a week and slowly build up to 5-6 times a week.

Make sure you do a combination and keep chanigng it up and challenging yourself to see results. For instance start with 45 mins - 15 mins cardio (running or cross-training), 20 mins strenth (focus on each muscle group every day of the week with compound exercises) and 10 mins cooldown or stretching to increase flexibility.

These work for me - Weights, HIIT, Pilates, CrossFit, Yoga. Once you have a routine, change and challenge yourself.

For eating - lean meats, proteins and the usual. Avoid simple carbs, trans fat, basically processed foods. If you are going to do this seriously, make sure to take protein supplements.

Thanks so much, this was really helpful, I’m starting right now today with 30mins cardio/20mins strength for 5 days a week (and a lot more protein, as I already don’t have that much fat in my diet) and hopefully I’ll see results soon!
