Get yourself some SEXY guns people!!!!

Today let's chat about strength training guys!!!
I know some of you ladies think??? what? ummm hell naw I don't want to lift weights, that's not for me that's for dudes!


EEEEK....stop right there...that's where you're wrong. Strength training is for EVERYONE....and believe this statement or not but combining it with CARDIO, you get overall results for your body. Truth is.... I used to think the same way...I always thought cardio was all I needed and that was it. So back before I would have never lifted weights. And the thing about worrying ladies if you'll bulk up is a myth, don't worry WE DON'T BULK. Unless you taken something I wouldn't worry about a little muscles, ok!! Muscle weighs more then FAT! Hell, I SAY GOOOOOD!!! WHO wants fat right???


But on this journey I started learning that it was good for me, and having more muscle in my body improved my overall fitness and not only that, strength training and putting lean muscle in your body allows you to burn MORE CALORIES throughout your day!!!!!! OMG can you believe that? ummmmmmm, yea I'll take that any day...... BRING ON THE GUN SHOW baby!!!



YUP SO TRUE!!




FUN, IMPORTANT FACTS:::

Fact 1.  Not only does strength training increase your physical work capacity, it also improves your ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL’s).  You will be able to work harder and longer with the proper weight training activities. 

Fact 2.  It improves bone density.  One of the best ways you can control bone loss as you age is to add strength training into your workout plan.

Fact 3.  It promotes fat-free body mass with decreasing sarcopenia.  The lean muscle mass that we all work so hard for decreases with age.  If we don’t add strength training to our routine then it will turn into fat. 

Fact 4.  It Increases the strength of connective tissue, muscles, and tendons. This leads to improved motor performance and decreased injury risk.

Fact 5.  It improves your quality of life as you gaining body confidence.  Strength training will not only make you strong, but will also help with managing your weight.    ( LOVE THIS ONE)(: 

IF YOU STILL A NON-BELIEVER HERES MORE!!!       HEY HEY LADIES:::

To love standing naked in front of the mirror...

Cardio's edge Sports psychologists have been studying the effect of aerobic activity on self-confidence for decades. And they keep coming to the same conclusion: Runners, cyclists, swimmers, and other athletes have high confidence levels because of the sense of accomplishment they feel each time they cross the finish line -- even when they bring up the rear.

Strength's edge Think you look hot immediately after a workout? It's not your imagination. Blood has rushed to your muscles, making them swell and appear more toned. Beyond vanity, you feel confident because you just pressed some major poundage. In 2006, researchers at McMaster University in Ontario tested subjects' body image -- how they felt about others checking them out, and how satisfied they were with their own appearance before and after 12 weeks of strength training. The women made significant improvements, and they were particularly influenced by the physical results of increasing the amount lifted. So try this: Keep a log of how many sets and reps you complete and how much weight you're hoisting for each move. Every 4 weeks, go back and review your first workout. Feel the rush of pride, then strut your stuff.

Winner: Strength!!!!!!
