    Increase callrie intake while on the same token increase the amount of weights you lift. Work on muscular strength which is applying maximal force to a given weight with the shortest amount of reps

    Strength training - high weight (80-95% 1RM), low reps (2-4), high rest (2-5 minutes), 2-3 sets If she want to increase muscle size (hypertrophy) and therefore increase BMI by increasing her mass - then lower weight (70-80% 1RM), higher reps (7-12), low-moderate rest (30 sec-2 minutes), moderated sets (3-5) - aiming to fatigue the muscle as well as strength train it These principles are the FITT principles there are also SPORT (specificity, progression, overload, reversibility and tedium) to consider Specific - to their sport, position on a team, lifestyle, occupation etc Progress - move from simple, closed exercises focussing on one muscle through to compound (many muscles and joints) then onto plyometrics (if required) Overload - increase the weight, reps, sets so muscles are always adapting and getting stronger Reversibility - training frequently (strength is 2-3 session per week building, 1-2 sessions a week maintenance) Tedium - avoid tedium by adding variety (cross fit, pump class, outdoor exercise etc) Goal setting - use the old SMART acronym
