A 21-year-old recent college graduate, Redditor Tovero began her weightlifting journey four years ago when she took a weight training class in school. “I made decent progress in my shoulders and abs during that time” she explains, “…eventually I hit a plateau and switched to a PPL program I designed. I stuck to that for 1 year and saw my first leg gains!”

For the past year, Tovero says she has been on an “upper/lower split” and that she’s found the current program “lets me recover best for optimal strength, while still letting me see visual gains.”

Her lifting schedule is as follows:

DAY 1: Deadlift + light squats + glute/hamstring accessories
DAY 2: Bench + tricep/chest/upper back accessories
DAY 3: Rest
DAY 4: Squat + quad accessories
DAY 5: Bench + tricep/chest/upper back accessories
DAY 6 + 7: Rest

As for her diet, Tovero says she is on a “light cut” so that she stays within her weight class for an upcoming competition in August. “I am eating 1800 calories or less most days with 1 or 2 cheat meals a week. I am for at least ~100g of protein a day, eat high fat, and limit carb consumption to less than 30% of my daily calorie intake on most days. I limit sugar to primarily pre and post workout.”

The four years of work she’s put into her body shows – these progress photos are fucking sick.
