My girlfriend needs to get stronger, but she is strictly opposed to gaining any mass, at least in the upper body. What would be a good basic strength program for a girl who is new to lifting? Right now we're looking at doing a few minutes of cardio to warm up, 3x8 sumo squats, 5x5 chest press on day one (with abs and stretching and whatnot), 5x5 stiff legged deads and 5x5 OH press on day two, and day three either regular deadlifts or squatting again, I can't decide. Plus a 5x5 row.
So what do you guys think about the third day, should we do some regular deadlifts or squat again? Maybe a different squat variation?
What about maybe just doing Scrapper No.1 3-4 times a week, and maybe going to the gym for nothing besides squatting once or twice? I don't know. Thanks.
