Ever have the feeling no matter what you do, you aren’t getting the results you want? Maybe it’s time to take a look at your routine and see if there are things you can change.
Isolating small muscle groups – Doing isolated exercises like bicep curls and tricep kick-backs will NOT get you any significant results. These one-muscle-at-a-time moves simply don’t stimulate enough muscle fibers to build lean muscle or expend enough energy to maximize your calorie burn.
Too much cardio can be an issue with many women who are not as comfortable lifting weights or fear they will get too bulky. I promise you; you won’t get too bulky, you need a ton more testosterone and if you aren’t supplementing that – don’t worry.
If you want to build lean muscle while burning fat so you can get serious definition, you need to perform exercises that stimulate as many muscles and expend as much energy as possible at the same time.
Try super settings moves or adding jump rope, jump squats or a cardio boost between sets.
Try doing full body moves that work both and small muscle groups. Ex. Lunge with over head press, step ups with lateral raise.
For added difficulty try adjusting your balance – the smaller the the base the more challenging the move.
