Hello there. I'm 29 from England. Have been vege/vegan for about 15 years.
I'm a vintage pinup style model so more known for curves than muscle, but since having severe back and hip problems for over a year now alas weight training or any other training has made me toooo curvy.
I have since discovered I have lumbar lordosis BUT caused no bone or cartalige damage and apparently I have a much higher/stronger bone density than average (so blows typical vegan missconceptions eh!).
So I'm gradually going to start a fresh! As my hip and back are still dodgy, I'm currently doing mostly core strengthening. As heavy lifting is still a problem.
I'm also trying to eat more raw foods smoothies etc.
since putting on a good 20 pounds weight loss is also on the books.
Soo....hello this is who I am and my aim is not to be too angular , im looking to gain bulk muscle under my curves without looking too lean. More amazon woman than body sculpter hehe.
Atm. I am only doing pilates and light walking until fit to lift!
Decided to take a look at this site for inspiration! It's been so long since training and so much needs doing I've no idea where to start! Any advice/tips most appreciated
