Almost everything you have read in women’s fitness magazines is completely wrong!
If you are a mesomorph female or a women who wants to get an athletic, sexy firm physique I suggest stop listening to fitness magazines and carry on reading here…
Now… a lot of women want to know how to get a body like Jessica Biel.
However none of them will ever really come close because they are too worried they will end up looking like Hulk Hogan! This means they shy away from lifting weights for fear of becoming ‘bulky’.
That is simply UNTRUE.
Because of the differing levels of oestrogen and testosterone in the genders, females physiologically won’t build muscle at the same rate as men.
The stronger and fitter a women becomes, her waist will get thinner and she will shrink dress sizes and look stronger and healthier. Win-win!
The principles that make up an effective muscle building program for a male are exactly the same as those that make up an effective training program for a female.
You need to challenge yourself and give your body a reason to actually change. High reps do not burn fat or help you improve muscle definition. Heavy weight training burns far more calories than high rep nonsense with light weights ever could.
It’s not how much you sweat or even how many calories you burn during the workout that is important but rather how many calories you burn in the 24-48 hours after your workout, during the recovery period.
Isolation exercises like leg extensions and triceps kickbacks are a waste of time.
You need to continually challenge your body. You can do this by adding more sets, decreasing your rest periods, or most importantly and most effectively; increasing the weight.
While many of the principles of effective weight training are exactly the same for males as they are for females, there are a few differences that need to be pointed out.
1) Females often work best when targeting a range of 8-15 reps.
2) Females Can Tolerate a Slightly Higher Training Volume
3) Females Require Less Rest Between Sets Than Males
So there it is! Train hard, train smart and eat right. The correct diet simply cannot be underestimated and it can make all the difference in whether your training is effective or not!
The right diet and heavy intense training will not make you put on bulk and look like a female bodybuilder. Fitness Models and celebrities who are in amazing shape can all attest to the fact that if you want to change your life you have to challenge your body.
These workouts have been amazingly effective for mesomorph females but whatever your body type it will help you get the fantastic physique you deserve.
Good Luck with all your fitness goals and I hope your motivation brings you the results that you deserve (I’m sure it will!!).
