Ladies! Listen up! You can get lean and toned without getting bulky and buff!
To do so is simple.
For weights: You should be able to do 30 reps but the last ten and last 5 reps of each set should be difficult. Difficult to where you’re pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. Do 2 sets of 30 reps
For your workouts: Don't be afraid to work the whole body! You aren't maxing out your muscles, so they can recover faster than those who want to look like 50 cent. Hit all the points: hamstrings, quads, back, shoulders, biceps, triceps, and abs (upper, lower, and obliques).
For cardio: Yes, cardio. If you want to get leaner, you'll need to kickstart fat burning. Start off your workout with cardio, and mix it in between muscle groups. You can do jumping jacks, mountain climbers, sprints, jogging, jump rope, line jumps, fast step ups, etc. Start workout with 3-5 minutes cardio warm-up and mix one minute intervals between your muscle groups. If your heart rate isn't getting up there, do 3 minutes between muscle groups.
Keeping these three things in mind will definitely get you on your way to a leaner body. If you want more information, or want to learn more about your health, schedule a free fitness assessment and we'll show you exactly how it's done!
