Ladies, if you want to get into real shape then you have got to train like a man. Now before you accuse me of trying to sound sexist I actually heard that from a female client of mine. Believe me, she is as fit as they come. The only way for you to get true results is to change your attitude on what your fitness should be.
The truth is that in my career some of the fittest and most beautiful women that I have seen have all trained with the intensity of a powerfully motivated guy! I’ve got to admit that I love the quote from my client. I want to be clear that I am not trying to pick on all of you ladies. I’m not even saying that every woman has that “girly” mindset when it comes to working out, but I think you can agree that a lot of girls do. Remember that the female body develops muscle in a vastly different way than the male body. Women don’t have near as much of the muscle building hormones such as testosterone like guys do. Your muscles tend to look longer and sleeker rather than hard and large! This is why training with olympic lifting, kettlebells, and other hard-hitting intense methods of strength training work so well. Don’t forget that fat-loss and weight-loss are achieved by training through intense bodily movements just like you would get from training with kettlebells, performing olympic lifts, and plyometric-based drills. This intensity is what stimulates your nervous system and forces your body to increase it’s production of those muscle building hormones that give you those sleek looking muscles.
Ladies, the old mindsets on women’s fitness are changing. Well, I don’t know how much the “girly” mindset on fitness is changing with women, but I promise you that I am doing my part to help make the change! Train hard ladies and enjoy.
