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.)

    Hi Amanda! I'm gonna check this out and I'll be interested in hearing your comments about the program. I switched from group ST classes to Art of Strength and then Crossfit classes at my gym about a year ago. Quite a different program. I'm probably the strongest I've ever been. Hope all is well with you.
