I only added this one at the end because this is a typical thing of most sports magazines to do. False advertise. She probably lifts more than this in the gym. This is silly.
What you work out for; Below is a chart showing the difference in the number of reps you do for weightlifting, and what you achieve.
I train for strength, and do a 3×5, so aim for a max of 5 reps on the most weight I can do. Obviously if you are into having big muscles like bodybuilders you want to be doing about 10 reps, and so on.
Today is the day you can take control of things. The first step is always the hardest.
I can say it a thousand times over, girls do not get ‘massive’ muscles from lifting.
I hear this so often, girls shouldn’t be afraid to just pick up those heavy weights.
I have compiled a few videos that are pretty cool.
Also this is very similar to some older post I have made before;
Lola Jones- beyond reason;
