Starting in November, I have access to a fairly good gym (mainly used by military personnel) and want to really whip myself in to shape.
I'm 36, 170cm tall, weigh 65kg and have a small waist, DD bust and large hips and saddle-bags.
I currently have a diet I am happy with (vegan, very little alcohol, I rarely eat sweet stuff), and will be running 5K or more five mornings a week, plus walking/hiking or mountain biking most weekends.
So I think diet and cardio are okay. What I am looking for is an 8 week gym routine where I can absolutely 'smash' myself into shape: trim the lower body flab, perhaps flatten the tummy a bit and add good upper-body definition. I would want to go really hard for that 8 weeks (spending hours in the gym if need be) then maintain it afterwards. I am not new to gym-going, but am finding it hard to find a good, intense routine on the internet that looks like it would work. Any suggestions most welcome.
