Girl Power: Fear Vs Fact

My latest blog at Designer Whey is all about girl power – why we love it and yet why so many girls still don’t have it.

Admittedly, tough training is catching on. As the fitness world continues to move in a more intense training direction, there are more women training harder than ever before. Ladies are skipping traditional 5Ks to do races like the Tough Mudder and Warrior Dash – and they love it. Even still, the majority of women are so focused on fat they neglect their muscles.

Fears Vs Facts
Why aren’t more women hitting the weights like they should? Here’s my top 5 reasons, and my answers:

  1. Thanks so much for this blog. I can personally testify that lifting heavy can work wonders for women. The closer I got to my weight loss goal and the more I read about fitness, the more convinced I became that lifting heavy was the way to go. After losing more than 90 pounds, I think it’s made a huge difference in the way my body looks and completely for the better. I still have my problem areas, but I think that lifting heavy weights has made my body look so much more toned, not to mention younger! I’m not bulky and I think I have a very feminine figure. More women need to jump on board this train!

  2. And thank YOU for your blogs. I came across them about 2/3 of the way into my weight loss and they helped inspire me to keep going. Now that I’m maintaining, they help me to continue to set and reach new goals 🙂
