Ladies lift weights to burn more fat and tone up

I have never heard of any woman getting bigger muscles accidentally. Have you?
As a personal trainer I often hear two things from female clients; ‘this won’t give me big muscles will it!?’ And ‘I bulk really easily!’
There is a general misconception amongst female trainees that if they start lifting weights that they will turn into He-man.

B.M.I Body Mass Index or Big Misleading Idea

To this day BMI (Body Mass Index) is used in gyms, doctors’ surgeries and hospitals to indicate to patients and clients what their body weight SHOULD BE. I personally do not use BMI & never will. You may be asking why, so I will answer your question with a question of my own…. Why is a 20stone bodybuilder with 5% body fat deemed as morbidly obese according to BMI??
Case study:
Meet Jay, Jay was the 2009 Mr Olympia & at around 21 stone with less than 5% body fat he won the highest achievement possible for being the most muscular, leanest … Read more

Consistent fat loss with a food diary

Are you stuck making progress with your fat loss goal? Do you ever stop and take stock of how much you’re eating or how many calories you consume a day? A week?
