    HEY! I POWER WALK G-DAMMIT! ;P 45 min to 1 hr 5x/week (~4 miles). Or I'll hop on a treadmill and incline it to 10 (out of 15) and get my stroll on at 3.4mph.

    And if you're a girl and you "workout" and don't sweat, you suck. You're not even doing $hit. Get raunchy in the gym or get out.

    If you're a dood and you don't break a sweat.....piss off. Get off this forum ;D GAYZORES!!! GAY BALLS!!

    .


    Tripdog, boxmeman, and guesjn, (and many others): why quote the entire OP for your one sentence responses? They usually consist of "way to go" "rock on girl!" or "oh yea baby I like it like that" and quoting two pages of material does not seem necessary. I love scrolling with either my scroll bar or, if I am feeling crazy, my down arrow, as much as the next guy and I also like to re-read articles that I just read three more times, just for fun, just to see how it feels, but isn't the quote function supposed to be used to clarify what a response is referring too? If you are really feeling like when you say "Great Post! Keep rocking on!" people are going to have no idea that you are referring to the original post, would it not be easier on me if you would just add a simple "OP" to your response.

    Ex. - Great article! Thanks OP! Check your PM.

    I think that would work. I think people would get it. I would. I would not ask, I know you all are excellent contributors to the forum, but my scroll wheel is down to like a nub and I spent the last of my paycheck on lube and a subscription to dogloveXXX . com. So please do your part to save the wheel. My visa's maxed out.

    Wow crader, as a young female that just started working out, I'm absolutely awed by what you said in this post!

    I'm 5'4.5" and around 102 lbs...but very very week. I started working out a mth ago and only recently mastered using 5 pound dumb bells. But when it comes to working on my triceps, i still have a long way to go...

    I never knew that working on heavy weights helps you get leaner and lose body fat! I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what's wrong with the changes in my body ever since I've started working out. I do alot of cardio but as well as weights with my personal trainer!

    I really want to get rid of my love handles, lower abs and tone up my hamstrings and bum!

    Any advice?

    My first advice would be to make sure you are getting at least 110 grams of protein in a day. If your protein levels are to low you will not build muscle.

    For your lower body I recommend 4 sets of walking dumbell lunges. Squats are good and deadlifts of course are a staple. Abs are all diet. If your diet is locked in then they will show. But the muscle you build under it will come from leg lifts, crunches , walkouts and all the fun things your trainer should already have you doing.

    When you say 110 grams of protein, should I take those protein shakes or just any type of food that has protein like chicken? My diet is really bad...I eat cold cut sandwiches soemtimes, lots of carbs and occassionally junk food. Ever since I started working out, I never seem to be full! Is that normal?

    When you say abs are all diet, doesnt that mean I should eat less in terms of portions? I have severe bowel movements and I'm not sure if that's the reason my tummy's been extremely bloated.

    I'm seeing my personal trainer today. I'll ask her to show me what walkouts and deadlifts are (cuz I dunno what they are). Thanks for the tips so far crader!

    For the protein get as much of that as you can from natural foods, but protein drinks are fine to fill in the gaps. It sounds like the foods you are eating are higher in sodium. Maybe try eating a meal with 30 grams of protein say every three hours. Try to keep your carbs things like oatmeal, sweet potatoes and whole grain rice. Get Gut Health from Nutraplanet to help with your bloat and bowels.

    When I say its all diet for abs its in terms of the healthy foods you choose to eat. To much salt and bread type carbs and high sugar will keep your abs from showing.

    You will lose more weight from weight training with light cardio than you will heavy cardio and little weights.

    Thanks for the article. I know I am a little late. I showed it to my girlfriend, b/c she feels she has hit a plateau with loosing weight. She was very responsive and is going to give it a try. She said she has always been weary of lifting like the article mentioned, b/c her trainer said that if she had any fat on her and then gained muscle, the muscle would push the fat and cause cellulite(sp?). And this was her volleyball coach, either her AAU or college coach(she played Division 1). Any truth to this. I mean I dont buy it, but what do i know.

    cellulite has to do with genetics. Want a bigger bum? Squat heavy. and try some deadlifts.

    Cellulite , not so much. But as far as the butt shaping goes, its got muscle also so you can build the muscle there.
    Do squats, walking barbell lunges and exercise like that to hit that area!

    Deeeep squats.


    Squatting deep puts you in that bucket that uses your glutes to get out of.

    I'm currently logging my progress with Lipotrophin-PM. I just started it on Wed. (8/05/08) so you could keep up with my log to see if you think it would work for your girlfriend. I love the supplement so far.. it's working well for me.

    Women at the gym
    By Kristin Reisinger

    Let me explain. Through the years I have seen many women in the gym lifting these rinky-dink, pink and purple hand weights barely breaking a sweat. I see the same girls do three cardio classes in a row and spend countless hours on the treadmill like hamsters on a habitrail pondering why their bodies look exactly the same as they did six months ago. These are the same girls that come up to me and ask me repeatedly what I do to look the way I do or what do I eat or do I even eat. I even overheard a girl once say, "I'm doing so good today... I only had a bagel and a salad." The list is endless and it is endlessly frustrating.

    I wish I had a megaphone right now. Ladies... you need to lift HEAVY to have a physique like the chick from Terminator! When you feel like you can't squeeze out any more reps... do two more! Get calluses on your hands... your man will love it. So many of you comment on how much you'd love to have a body like Madonna or Angela Bassett or Gabrielle Reece but most of you don't do anything to get it! Do you think these women work out with tiny little dumbbells and their bodies look like that by mistake?

    Do you even know how hard it is and how much meticulous planning and preparation (and testosterone!) it takes to put on muscle and "bulk up" like a professional bodybuilder? I've been lifting as hard and heavy as any guy I know for two years and I keep getting smaller and leaner! I look sexier and more feminine than ever before, too.

    By really lifting weights and stressing your muscles you will increase your lean mass, and since it is this lean mass (muscle tissue) that burns fat, you will have the capacity to burn more fat even at rest. Combining this with a moderate amount of cardiovascular activity (not three step classes in a row) will turn your body into a fat burning machine. Too much cardio works against you and will eventually begin to utilize your hard-earned lean muscle tissue for energy which is NOT the desired goal.

    "It's all about ATTITUDE," says Fortress, and I agree wholeheartedly. I would venture to say us women need to dish out even more of it than men...."

    You also need to EAT. Your need to fuel your body with the appropriate foods for energy as well as protein for the build up and reparation of muscle tissue. Starving yourself is NOT the answer and is more detrimental than most of you realize. It will slow down your BMR (basal metabolic rate) and hang on to every last bit of bagel you consume as stored energy (fat).

    By eating small, low-fat meals throughout the day incorporating a protein source with good sources of fibrous and complex carbohydrates will stabilize your insulin levels and sustain your energy levels. This will prevent your body from going into starvation mode while giving you all the building blocks you need for developing and shaping your muscles. Plus, you actually get to eat more!

    "...the gym is our domain as much as any man."

    "It's all about ATTITUDE," says Fortress, and I agree wholeheartedly. I would even venture to say us women need to dish out even more of it than men. If I had a nickel for every time I witness some girl feeling intimidated in the gym because of the presence of a man or give up a machine or a bench because some dude is waiting for it, I'd have a bank account like Arnold. I have gone up to girls in the gym and yelled at them for doing that.

    Where's your damn backbone?! Self-esteem, confidence and an all-around, I don't give a **** attitude are all part of the package that go along with my philosophies on training like a woman which is far more attractive than a whole heap of mascara, lip gloss and eye liner. And the gym is our domain as much as any man.

    Training like a woman is a synergistic framework allowing everything else in life to fall into place that much smoother including relationships, career or whatever you allow it to flow into. Having a great body is merely a fringe benefit. So ladies, to quote a very wise person, "Go hard or go home," especially if you're a woman
    is article and enjoyed the read:
    Awesome...I love asking the boys to step aside while I grab the 45lb DBs for presses. I also love asking for a spot with 45plates on the rack. And when I have these cardio queens ask me these questions about how do I have what I have...I ask her to excuse me while I rep out a set of wide-grip pullups. I find it to be satisfying to live as an example for working hard in the gym but looking like a woman.

    It sends the message..."not only could I steal your man if I wanted him...but I could kick your @$$ if you objected to it." What woman doesn't want that power

    Wonderful post!

    This is too funny and great!

    There's a girl at my gym that puts me to shame on the BB squat - I saw her doing about 300 lbs the other day.

    I actually just today saw a girl doing curls with one of those damn baby blue weights. Does that even do anything? I mean what is the f*cking point of even going to the gym when she probably lifts more weight when she picks up her gym bag.

    It sends the message..."not only could I steal your man if I wanted him...but I could kick your @$$ if you objected to it." What woman doesn't want that power

    Wonderful post!
    Leave it out sheman, no normal man wants a women built like a bloke.. Nor does he want a women thinking she’s boxer!

    Your post is really immature, and it suggests to me you’re very insecure, and spoilt.

    I think you all are missing the point. She never said that she would do something like that, only that she could. Confidence is a good trait if you can back it up. Some people are just intimidated by a confident woman I guess.

    And by the way, a lot of men in the gym do act this way and can't back it up. Neither would they "steal" someone's woman, nor would they win the fight. Us guys talk a lot of s**t but are quick to complain when a woman speaks up. Ridiculous.

    Hey guys, calm down a little bit. I wasn't saying I would do anything like that...I'm married, and it's just not in my nature. My point was that women always want to feel this confident about themselves, but always take the seemingly easy road out which leads them back to the same thing...no results. Crader was saying that you need to work hard, I work hard...and I get results.

    And no man wants a cocky girl...but every guy could use a girl that is sure of herself and not always asking "do I look fat in this."

    I agree. Big difference between doing something and knowing you could. That is confidence to me and not cockiness. I want a confident woman but not a cocky woman. Just like a girl doesn't want a guy who's ego is coming out of his ass. It was just a figure of speech not saying,"I am going to steal this girls boyfriend."

    So true! I do not want a girl who thinks she can get any guy she wants and she is god's gift to men. I would rather have a less attractive girl who is confident than a total babe who is insecure. I hate it when you compliment a girl and she is like,"Thanks...I guess." UGH!!

    I've been around long enough to know that a woman like that will never be satisfied, no matter who she is with or what you give her. When women act like that, I stay FAARR away. Not saying LJ is like that, but I can't stand that type either. A woman confident in how she looks no matter what she wears is very attractive and doesn't care what other women or men think.

    f I had a nickel for every time I witness some girl feeling intimidated in the gym because of the presence of a man or give up a machine or a bench because some dude is waiting for it, I'd have a bank account like Arnold. I have gone up to girls in the gym and yelled at them for doing that.

    I actually give way to a woman if she wants to live Heavy just because I am impressed that she in in there throwing up HARD just like the rest of us. Even if she is not lifting as heavy if i can tell she is lifting Heavy for her she gets all my respect. But i do the same thing for guys too sometimes i'll see new guys etc and they are lifting small weights or whatever but you can see them struggling or really giving it there all and I remember when i was lifting what they are lifting women or men if they go hard they get respect from me

    Please note the part where I said "Not saying LJ is like that".
    This wasn't directed at you, just women like that in general.

    I love lifting at the gym. For me, it is true that the heavier the weights the better my curves. Besides, it just feels better and sometimes it encourages other women to try it as well.
