As you might have guessed from the frame size, she's an Athena as well... She's 6' tall already, probably 2-3" to go. The LBS thought the 56 would be flexible enough to fit as she grows this last little bit - maybe a longer stem if she does add 3 more inches. She's quite the athlete - basketball, tennis, swimming, volleyball and now cycling... Wednesday she pushed 170lbs on the leg machine for 20 reps x 2 sets, and that was her first time, so I didn't let her go any heavier
She said it was 'easy'. We're only doing large muscle group movements right now and only one exercise per body part, just a base builder. Bench press, leg press, seated rows, shoulder presses. 3 x a week, in a circuit... She rests while I do a circuit, then does her 2nd while I rest, then I do my 2nd. I add weight and a couple more exercises for mine. After that we hit the gym for some basketball work. She's a center/power forward, so we work on post moves and rebound drills, then after she's a tad tired we do some sprints and then she shoots 20 free throws and we go home. Going to cycle on our off days once she gets the bike. Good cardio without beating up her knees, ankles and feet by running too much.
