Girls can lift too!
So glad made it to a resistance class for the first time this week. My aim is to get fit, leaner and stronger in the next 3 months. I do not believe in setting unrealistic goals, e.g 2 week weight loss diets. Therefore my advise and plan is to build a healthy lifestyle that involves exercise and eating healthy.
This is me doing a bit of arm work to get my biceps in shape.
Gain muscle to burn more fat, thats the goal!
There is so much evidence to support this claim. Evidence shows leaner muscles demand more energy. The more muscle you have the more calories you burn.
Consistence strength training and the right diet, encourages an enviroment for which your body builds muscle whilst shedding off fat.
Adding a bit of resistance and weight training during your work out week can help you slowly build muscle and get you to your healthy weight. Of course plus a bit of yoga, yoga actually helps you lift better, will talk about this on a later time.
Below is a guide for your week.
1. Eat frequently and eat a high protein healthy balanced diet.
2. Weight train 3 to 6 days per week
3. Add yoga in between
4. Cardio 2-3 times
5. Have fun with it, don’t put yourself under pressure.
Happy work out, remember have fun with it, and dont put yourself under pressure to gain results fast. Consistency, healthy diet and focus is the key.
