Today, I want to talk CARDIO, as so many people ask me how much cardio I do or what I recommend they do. This all depends on where I am at in my personal fitness goals, either pre-contest or off-season.
I have a very strong love/hate relationship with lunges. I know the effectiveness of a lunge workout, but using dumbbells increases the intensity and makes the workout more challenging! With this love/hate relationship of lunges, I make sure to incorporate at least one lunge exercise every week to my leg routine!
Today we will talk about two forms of still-leg deadlifts that are highly effective in building your glutes and hamstrings when done with proper form.
Even though 2013 tank top and competition season is coming to a close, it is important to keep a consistent training regimen to make improvements and keep muscle development strong. Today's focus is training rear delts! You can train rear delts with the rest of your shoulders or separately. I will occasionally add them into back day to hit them twice a week for more development.
Top 5 IFBB Figure International and Top 4 IFBB Figure Olympia champion, Heather Dees shares her training journal with us. Check out everything this top Pro does for her glutes, arms, back, legs, chest and abs!
I hear a lot of women complain they don’t want the lower part of the arm (triceps) to wave when they wave goodbye... LOL! While this is partially due to higher body fat, we can mitigate the issue by developing the triceps muscles!
Today I want to do a strict glute-training workout! Having shapely glutes not only looks nice, it also gives your physique symmetry and strength. I’ve seen women who have over-dominant hamstrings, which makes their glutes appear small or underdeveloped. This workout, whether done alone or added into your quad day, will maximize muscle hypertrophy for the derriere (wink)!
Today we are going to train chest! It’s very important to know the exercises that are safe and effective for training chest as women! It is a common muscle group I hear a lot of women skip, but that’s a mistake.
This week, I want to put you through a great abdominal workout! When it comes to ab muscles, you need to train them in a similar way to all your other muscle groups—excessive ab workouts is not the way to go.
Follow my quad routine for maximum muscle hypertrophy, and I'll give you the exact weight I used during my quad workout. You can adjust weight to avoid injury, but if you like to train heavy, load it up! ;) You will experience some serious delayed onset muscle soreness 24 to 48 hours later! Woo woo!
