New Rules of Lifting for Women
Sunday, September 21, 2014
I read this book and am giving the exercise plan a try beginning tomorrow. It is a 7 stage, 6 month long weightlifting plan. The gist that I got from it is stop lifting light weights and isolating small muscles. Heavy, full-body workouts are the way to go. I had already been leaning in this direction (Calves? Do I really need to work my calves?) in the weight room. I am excited to have some guidance and direction.
The book also has a food plan section that focuses on eating enough calories and plenty of protein so that your body has the fuel that it needs to build muscle. I was not a big fan of protein shakes, but after reading this book am giving them a go as well.
I'll do my best to come back and give an update.
(I wouldn't recommend the Kindle version. The charts for the workouts are difficult to read.)
