Looking Hotter & Younger with Age Have you noticed that your latest purchases revolved around either make-up or jewelry? That shopping for clothes hasn't been as much fun as if you were in your 20's? And even then, the fun makeup and accessorizing doesn't seem to look so much fun and sexy as if you were younger? Enter the female middle age. But guess what? You can enter the stage of middle-age hot and sexy at ANY AGE. The key to it: STRENGTH TRAINING! Here's the deal: Women,
Client: "Omg Edith, are you crazy! I've never worked with 15 lbs dumbbells!' Me: "How heavy of dumbbells have you worked with?"
Client: "4 lbs"
Me: "How long have you been complaining about your flabby arms?"
Client: "Forever!" ME: "Then grab those flipping 15 pounders or go to Planet Fitness!" NO CHALLENGE - NO CHANGE!
In a nutshell: long training sessions (more than an hour) usually mean low-intensity muscle contractions and extended rest periods. To gain muscle and burn fat, low-intensity workouts are often ineffective and counterproductive. The solution?
