    I'm 17 yrold girl who recently joined Cross country, and not only do I wanna run fast and far but I also want a better body. I'm about 5'6" and 143 pounds. I have a gym membership but I am at a total loss with what to do to get rid of my tummy/love handles and increase my stamina for cross country. Since I know all of you broly guys have routines thought you could help. Thanks

    Your best bet would be to find a trainer in your area that can show you good form on all the individual movements. I'm not talking just a pt but an GOOD athletic trainer.

    How much would a good athletic trainer go for? I have a meeting with pt, but it's just the guy who works at the gym.

    Athletic trainers are more expensive then your run of the mill personal trainer at a gym, but the difference is night and day. A gym PT will do nothing for your current goals. Usually, athletic training is in week blocks and the pricing is going to vary. If you can't afford it, try to look up some famous athletic trainers... some have websites with sample routines.

    Heres one of my personal favorites.

    just because Joe put Westside in the name of the routine doesn't mean its a true WSB style routine... regardless of the name I still think its a good routine for athletes in general. Even the heavy sets are to a 5RM and the accessory stuff is done for high reps. Lots of focus on posterior chain and abs and even days set up for plyos and conditioning. :dunno:

    • MONDAY (A.M.) - MAX-EFFORT Upper Body lift​
    • MONDAY (P.M.) - Sprint work, conditioning, GPP or skill training​
    • TUESDAY - OFF or Restoration techniques​
    • WEDNESDAY - Sprint work, conditioning, GPP or skill training​
    • THURSDAY - REPETITION Upper Body lift​
    • FRIDAY - Sprint work, conditioning, GPP or skill training​
    • SATURDAY - Lower Body lift​
    • SUNDAY - OFF or Restoration techniques​
    I'd say thats pretty far away from a powerlifting routine

    Might be good for athletes, the only problem is that any lifting routine is going to suffer from all the distance running required in CC. I'd probably just worry about running and then do weights in the off season but I know absolutely nothing about distance running because that shit is evil.
