Weights Make Women Huge?

Monday, September 30, 2013

Today's Inspiration:


It's no secret, the number one reason women give as to why they don't lift weights is they don't want to "bulk up" or "get big". 

Here's the less known secret - that's a lie.  The women with muscle laden physiques you have might have seen in a body building magazine did not get that way by lifting weights three days a week.  They are a product of extreme dedication, calorie loading, and probably a supplement or two.  In fact, it's probably insulting to them that you think you can achieve their physique simply by hitting the gym a few days a week.

The truth - weightlifting will actually help you lose weight.  Muscle burns more calories than fat; so the more muscle you build, the faster your metabolism will be.  Not only that, developing muscles will give your body a firm, tight appearance that you'll never achieve from cardio alone regardless of how many hours you spend on the elliptical machineSo, ditch the mind-numbingly boring hamster wheel and pick up some weights!!


Today's Workout:

Today's workout was a CrossFit style.  We started with front squats and rows.  For the record, if I have a choice between front squats or back squats, I'm picking the back squat every time.  Front squats KILL my wrists.  I'm sure that's just a sign that I need to work on my form, but nevertheless, my wrists feel like that are splintering. 

Obviously, I didn't have a choice today.  I dealt with the pain, and knocked out this circuit.



Afterwards, to get the heart pumping, we did a quick three sets of 350 meter sprints on the rower, followed by a heavy farmer's walk.  This circuit was done with a partner, so while one person rowed 350 meters, the other completed the Farmer's walk.  If you are doing this sans partner, time yourself on the 350 meter row, and then farmer's walk for the equivalent time.
