Attention Scale Addicts – Jason Seib
One of my female distance coaching clients sent me the link to this post the other day, and I thought it was fantastic. If anything, it drives home the point that scale weight doesn’t mean diddly squat in terms of body compositional changes.
In keeping with the “it’s okay for women to lift heavy things” theme from above, JC breaks down fitness marketing and how the mainstream media does nothing but placate many of the myths and fears that women generally have when it comes to lifting some iron. Awesome, awesome post – couldn’t have said it better myself!
Balancing Fitness with a Busy Life – Jim Smith
We’re all busy – and more often than not, the last thing on our to do list is “head to the gym.” Coincidentally, we always seem to find the time to watch, on average, 6-8 hours of television per day. Weird.
Anyways, here, Smitty provides a little insight on how to become more efficient with your gym time so that you’re able to maximize your results in the shortest amount of time
SPOILER ALERT: there’s no mention of eliptical trainers, aerobic classes, “arms day,” or yoga. Thank god.
