Womens’ Fitness: Ladies Should NOT Be Working Out Like ‘Tough Guys’

A few weeks ago I had a new member post a question for me in the private forum of my interactive site (www.BestFitnessAdvice.com) – the one you get free access to when you get started on the ULBHTM program…

Anyway – here’s her question:

“Hi Joey – just ordered the e-Manual today and I’m very excited about this because I’ve been working myself like crazy 6 days a week in the gym – and I’ve been at it for about 7 years now. See, after my second daughter – my body looked like one of those big bean bags that you sit on – it was a mess…

Anyway I joined a gym and basically started doing the same thing that everyone else was doing – ya know – the squats with weight, leg presses leg curls, the smith machine, dead lifts – you name it I was doing it…

All the guys told me I was doing the right thing – to work hard and keep pushing…

Well after seven years and hardly any results – I knew I had to try something else… One of the other mother’s from my kids school told me about your lower body program and emailed me the link to
your site – and well, here I am!

I’m starting your leg, butt, hip, thigh and tummy Makeover in the morning – would you advise that I stay away from the ‘men type’ workouts for a while?”

Thanks, Joey
Collette

MY ANSWER TO COLLETTE…

Hey Collette – welcome to ‘the club’…

First things first: You are a woman – so there is no need for you to think about working out like a man… Now there are 2 key reasons for this…

1 – most men don’t exercise properly (most of them just don’t publicly admit that they are not quite sure if they are doing the right program – most guys do the ‘monkey see – monkey do’ program) – if you watch them – they all do the same exact stuff – it’s like the blind leading the blind…

2 – a woman’s body is much more delicate and sensitive – and doesn’t react favorably to the strenuous nature of the weights and machines that men “like to do” because they are ‘tough guys’.

Most women – after pounding their bodies for several years with the gym type workout routine – start to get aches and pains that they never had before – these aches and pains are a crystal clear warning sign from your body saying “Hey – please stop beating me up every day – what you’re doing is not helping me – it’s hurting me and I don’t know how much more I can take be before I break down.”

So – yes – stay away from ‘the gym’ – at least for all your lower body work – if you still want to go there for some upper body and some cardio – that’s cool…

OK Collette – keep me posted on your progress,
Joey

So, have YOU ever done ‘the gym thing’ – did it work for you? Did it feel too strenuous? Was the time commitment a bit unrealistic? Did you get any of the aches and pains? …

… and most importantly…

Did you get ALL the results you were hoping you would get?
