Installing muscles.


Monday, September 30, 2013



One of my goals for my new healthy lifestyle was to add more muscle to my frame. Muscle burns more calories & helps protect your bones, among other things. It is also more sleek & compact than fat. I'm beginning the 10th week of a 12-week intensive strength training program. While doing this program, I have built more muscle, lost a few pounds, lost lots of inches & I feel so much stronger. My chiropractor & massage therapist say that I have more muscle around my spine which better supports my posture.

Don't be afraid of strength training. Ladies, you probably don't have enough testosterone to get bulky. I don't look bulky at all -- just much more toned.



Consider adding strength training to your exercise. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm working on adding strength training now. I have a resistance chair with graduated "weight" cables. I've been trying to decide on which weights to buy. I saw a set with a stand that came in 2, 3 and 5 pounds. Would that be enough for starters? Or should I go with 3-10? I just don't know much about it. And, of course, I want pretty colors! emoticon

    I have got no idea where to start with strengh training - can you help point me in the right direction? The only dumbells I have weight about 500 gms each. And I have a treadmill for cardio which I love to use. Any advice on strength training is appreciated.
