A lot of magazines publish stories about fitness for women, and a lot of these stories are nonsense. Due to a lack of knowledge about fitness, a lot of women think these stories are true. Why do magazines publish these stories, you wonder? The want to keep their target group (women) satisfied, and do not want to give confronting information. Fortunately, these things change.
Health magazine Santé published a good aricle about the so called ‘Fat ass cardio syndrome’. You would think that is an inappropiate title, but it is about the following: if you train on the tredmill only, or only do slow cardio excercises, your calories will burn, but your ‘fat ass’ will, unfortunately, stay. You feel you exercise enough, but you do not see a result. This is frustrating. You are like a hamster in a tredmill. So what is the right way to obtrain nice curves, and loose weight effectively?
The best thing to do is to combine intensive power training like deadlifts, squats and sit ups, with explosive cardio exercise. This will make your muscles harder, and will result in firm arms, buttocks and legs.
Do not be afraid to get muscles ‘too big for women’. You won’t. Our personal trainers have worked with this combinations for years, and have results to show for. A big advantage of more muscle, is that your body burns more fat, even in rest.
So don’t be afraid of the heavier weights. If you can carry heavy grochery bag and children, you will have no problem with our heavy dumbells. 🙂
