I hate almost ALL fitness marketing, because 99% of the times it involves lies or half truths.
If these marketers were telling the truth, they’d be saying things like:
“Want to tone, tuck, and tighten those abs? Don’t waste your time with this!”
“Want to banish that belly fat? This ab coaster won’t help!”
“Want to get stronger? You’re gonna need to pick up something heavier than this!”
In every issue of practically every fitness magazine, you’re presented with a new workout that promises crazy results in minutes a day by ‘toning muscles’ with light weights and crazy equipment.
You’re promised super-foods that specifically target belly fat, and ab workouts, butt workouts, and thigh workouts that are designed to “tighten those problem areas.” Lies-----ALL Lies!!!!!!!
First Lie: Women shouldn’t lift heavy or they’ll get bulky.
This is the biggest myth in all of female training, and it makes me want to punch a hole in the wall. If you’ve been reading this Blog for a while, you know this isn’t true. If you’re brand new to Nutrition Plus Fitness, then allow me to assure you:
YOU WILL NOT GET BULKY FROM PICKING UP HEAVY THINGS.
You know those women bodybuilders who look really bulky? They eat, train, and take supplements specifically so they can look like that! They’ve probably been working towards that goal for years and years.
Here’s the truth: when you pick up heavy things, your muscles get STRONGER (but not necessarily bigger). If you pump yourself full of testosterone and eat way more calories than you are burning every day, you will get bigger.
If you pick up heavy things, and eat a caloric deficit (and eat the right kinds of food – actual healthy foods), your muscles will get stronger and denser; you will burn the fat on top of your muscle, and you will get that “toned” look that you’re after.
