Female Fitness Muscle
Female fitness muscle building is not really muscle building in the same sense as it is for men. We all know that women lack sufficient levels of the male hormone - testosterone - which is essential for building muscle.
Thus, women who try to build muscle can't do so as easily. However, women who weight train are able to tone and firm-up their muscles and burn off unwanted fat. Remember muscle helps burn fat!
To build a well shaped and toned body there are no special secrets. In fact, it all comes down to hard work at the gym, being aware of what you eat (and when you eat) and being persistent.
In order to achieve fitness goals you need to have a long-term approach and realize that your goals cannot be achieved overnight. It may take months or more than a year, but if you remain constant the results will come.
When it comes to your diet the formula is very simple as well. If you eat more calories than your body needs, the excess will be stored as fat. Simple as that!
The first mistake many people make is trying to starve themselves when trying to reduce weight or burn fat. This is not good. To maintain a balanced diet we need to eat regularly, 4 to 6 meals per day. It's important to stay away from fast food and junk food because it does nothing good for our bodies. Having a healthy diet means eating fruits, veggies, meat and whole grains. More on this on our fitness nutrition page.
Female fitness muscle is incredibly attractive in that it transforms your body into a lean, strong and well-proportioned silhouette. If you want to achieve this you need to get used to working out with weights. Weight training is the key to getting results. Spending hours upon hours per week on a treadmill alone will not help much.
The three main pillars upon which your success will rest on are:
- performing a proper weight training regimen
- post-workout cardio (or cardio on your non-weight training days)
- proper diet
These three elements are the foundation of any successful fitness quest!
Female Fitness Muscle - Recommendations
Train with weights at least 3 times per week and incorporate cardio workouts at least 2 times per week. Cardio should be done either after your weight training routine or on your off days (non-weight training days). Your biggest meals should be before and after your workouts and for breakfast. As you approach your bedtime you need to start minimizing your serving sizes and limit carbohydrates.
Remember that eating properly is more of a lifestyle than a temporary adjustment. Fad diets are good examples of temporary "fixes" which do not create any long-term benefits. Eating properly and working out are both long-term lifestyle changes and have deep impact on your physical appearance as well as your overall sense of wellbeing.
