My Truths #4 (muscles)

by Stephanie

Muscles are sexy! Lifting weights burns calories, creates muscle and builds bone mass. More muscle means higher metabolism and (I can’t stress this enough) muscles are sexy! Tips: 1) Never work the same muscles 2 days in a row. Muscles need time to repair. You actually don’t get stronger while you’re lifting. When you lift heavy weight to failure (until you can’t lift anymore) you make tiny tears in your muscles. Your muscles get stronger when they are repairing. 2) Don’t be fooled in to lifting lighter weights and doing more repetitions because you think this will keep you from “bulking up”. This just takes more time. Without supplements it’s virtually impossible for a women to “bulk up”. Lift the heaviest weight that you can with proper form. I promise you… this will give you sexy feminine muscles.
