As someone that just gave birth to a child you should go easy on the weights and stick with cardio... BTW - Good power lift numbers for a Women

You put your hands on the bar and pull up and lift.

Or maybe you just work out until you're strong enough to do it.

he's only 5'5"... he's obviously in good shape. Plus most shorter guys can bench higher numbers as the weight has less distance to travel.

I do the same thing, notice a big difference in my overall strength... even the little things like shooting a basketball. I have at least 5 ft more range off the 3 point line now with just as good of accuracy. More controlled core movement and strength from the legs.

i'm kicking my workouts up a bunch now. lifting 4 days a week, and doing 60-90 min run/jogs 6 days a week.

You should do legs first day, It'll release testosterone that will make you want to work out even more during the week

Even though I haven't been able to get in the gym MWF, my overall and core strength have gotten a lot better. lifting and doing an hr of cardio is where I'm hoping to get back to. It was so much easier in college

Buddy of mine weighs 145, put up 365 the other day. I'm 180 and I put up 315. How much you weigh really has nothing to do with it.

all things equal it does to a certain extent, a 6'3" man just has more muscle mass than one who is 5'7" of the same kind of build. The difference is when you get to the point of having a very muscular body (like if you've been lifting seriously for 2 yrs or more), it is certainly easier for smaller statured guys to put up more weight doing more reps.

^ True, but I was just saying that you don't have to weigh a lot to be very strong and yeah.

On topic though, I really love pull-ups/weighted pull-ups. I do sets of antagonist muscle groups (ie shoulder/military press) in between each set of pull-ups and it's a great workout. Make sure you hit the deadlifts too. Deads and squats are the best full body workouts there are. I also do a good amount of push-ups on off days, but I still try to space them out with my upper body workouts because my shoulders get pissy if I do too much.
