This article is about training for girls. Why gender specific? It’s not like you as a girl need to work differently than boys.
No, because I regularly meet a group of girls who have two things in common: they have similar training goals, and they have no idea how to get there.
In this post you will learn how to achieve the most common exercise goal of all: How to burn fat and lose weight while building muscle and getting some curves and strength.
Raise your hand if you have heard any of these statements before:
“You have to sweat to burn fat”
“Exercising with heavy weights makes you bulky and manly looking!”
“Carbohydrates make you fat.”
If it is slow cardio training for a long time, or short and intensive that is best for fat burning, most seem to be confused.
The same applies to what exactly is meant by heavy weights, and if it is carbohydrates or fat you get fat? As long as you get stuck, it’s quiet. Or?
Exercise for a nice look with a low amount of subcutaneous fat and a well-formed muscle under the skin is perceived by some as a silly training goal.
I say goodbye to them. Exercise exactly what you want, and if you happen to have the exercise goal I just mentioned, that’s actually a positive side effect of a whole range of health benefits: both now and when you grow older.
Most girls who turn to me do it because they want a body that feels good and strong and they even think is really nice.
What is “beautiful” rests in the eyes of the beholder, but those who turn to me usually think that a body with a healthy amount of subcutaneous fat and muscle enough to be called “well-trained” is fine.
In my opinion, this is a fairly common training goal. The problem, however, arises if you have this goal, but exercise in a way that does not make you a dew closer to it.
This is the issue:
How do you train and eat to reach your goal?
It can go very fast if you do the right thing, but if you do wrong, you will not have a lifetime of exercise and dieting.
First of all, let’s get fat burning overrun
Most girls (and guys for that matter) would like to burn some subcutaneous fat, but at the same time maintain or build a little muscle mass.
This fat burning is not as complicated as it seems, and you do not have to get out of the running track or sit on the crosstrainer.
You burn fat by creating a deficit of calories. Do it the way you think it’s easiest.When you eat fewer calories than you need every day, your body will remove stored reserves, that is, your subcutaneous fat.
The subject has been treated several times to the trainers before and you will find all articles related to fat burning here.
This does not mean you have to deffa! What the wave shows is not so heavenly. If you have no big overweight to talk about then your body will begin to change as long as you start eating a little greasy food, but above all if you start exercising properly.
“Exercise Like A Warrior, Look Like A Goddess”
Where most girls bet is when it comes to training.
The training that in most cases means the fastest way to the goal is strength training focused on building muscles.
Muscles not only give you nice curves, but also make your body stronger and faster. Additionally, it’s easier to hold down your subcutaneous fat if you wear a pair of kilos of muscle extra that constantly consumes more energy, even when you sleep on the TV couch.
Several girls are afraid of weight training because they think it will make them look unfriendly or big. However, there is a completely unjustified concern as such training results require a very large amount of time and effort.
A good example of this is guys. Many guys have the greatest desire to build as much muscle as possible, and take both diet and exercise exemplary to reach there. Nevertheless, it usually takes a long time before the results reach a high level. Girls have much worse conditions than guys to build muscle – do you really think that you will “happen” to succeed with what others struggle this year for?
I do not want to say that it is in some way impossible for girls to build muscles. It is simply just a gradual process, and you will not just “wake up” strong.
