Have you ever wondered, ladies, how those bikini models got their incredible bodies, how the swimsuit calendar models got their incredible behinds, or how celebrities and fitness experts got their taut, toned bodies, gorgeous legs with no cellulite, and flat, sexy tummies?
Did they have exceptional genetics, a beautiful mother, were born rich, or were they just lucky because they were born that way?
No, it wasn’t any of these things. The truth is that it was caused by their use of heavy weights in the gym. No amount of cardio on ellipticals, treadmills, exercise bikes, or Stairmasters can ever compare to the incredible body you can build when you start lifting weights like the guys.
It’s true that you can “lose weight” by doing cardio, but what kind of weight is that? Are you burning fat or just the sugar from your breakfast cereal, which you consumed? It might just be water weight, and you might even lose some muscle mass, which is the exact opposite of what you want. No matter what kind of weight you are losing, the end result will be a smaller version of your current appearance. So if you have some weight on your hips that makes you look pear-shaped, after “losing weight” via cardio, your result will simply be to resemble a smaller-looking pear.
I suspect you don’t want that, though. You want to do away with the pears forever! Although you have fat on your hips, you need LEAN, FEMALE MUSCLE to give them the right curves.
Therefore, if you want to look like the hot babe who lives inside of you, the sexy, self-assured woman who is just waiting to burst out, you need to work out like the boys do!
You and any of those calendar girls can only achieve that coveted shape by lifting heavy weights in the gym. Therefore, you must become more concentrated in order to reach your fitness objectives in the gym!
Get a month’s worth of gym memberships to start, then assess how it goes. For each exercise, you must determine how much you can push and pull. There are 8 basic exercises you need to consider –
Before you go to the gym for the first time, research these exercises on Google Images or watch some YouTube videos to learn the proper technique. Watch the videos numerous times to get a good understanding of how to perform the exercises because doing them correctly is crucial. Bad form during exercises allows you to push and pull more weight than is safe and recruits more muscles than you should be using, which increases the likelihood of accidents and injuries. Additionally, you should only concentrate on the muscle that is being worked during each exercise. If you focus on other muscles, the force you apply will be distributed among muscles that are not being worked during the exercise, which will reduce its effectiveness.
Finding out what weight you can use safely while maintaining proper form should be your first workout when you first enter a gym. Then, perform each of the aforementioned exercises 8 times with that weight. The weight is too light if you can perform 8 repetitions with ease. Choose a heavier weight and perform 8 more repetitions with it. A lighter weight should be chosen if you can only complete a few reps with the heavier one. The correct weight is one where you can complete 5 reps fairly easily with good form, but where reps 6, 7, and 8 are challenging to complete without a struggle. With a piece of paper and a pen, make a note of the exercise’s name and the weight. Apply this to all the exercises mentioned above.
The majority of beginners discover they are unable to complete even one pullup. Don’t worry if this applies to you. You’re not alone; it took me a year of performing the other 7 exercises before I could complete my first pullup. Just focus on the other seven, and you’ll get somewhere.
Then, on your subsequent visit to the gym, you begin with the appropriate weight for each exercise and superset two exercises together, which means you perform one exercise for a set, then the next exercise without a break in between. Next, take a two-minute break before performing that superset a final time for a total of three times. Complete this workout –
1/(a) Pullups x 8 reps
(b) Lateral pulldowns x 8-12 reps 3 sets
2/(a) Deadlifts x 8 reps
(b) Machine Rows x 8-12 reps 3 sets
3/(a) Pushups x 12 reps
(b) Bench Press x 8-12 reps 3 sets
4/(a) Squats x 8 reps
(b) Forward Lunges x 8-12 reps 3 sets
Perform three sets of lateral pulldowns in a row as a warm-up to the other three sets of exercises if you are unable to complete any pullups. Do this exercise three times per week, for instance, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Remember your nutrition, too – eat lots of protein and have 5-6 smaller meals a day instead of the usual three “square” meals.
You’ll soon achieve the curvy physique you’ve always desired if you follow these steps.
