John Basedow: For many women the thought of bodybuilding conjure of images of the big bulging muscles they see on male bodybuilders. Grush that mental myth aside and see how ladies can use bodybuilding to get the lean tone muscles they've always wanted.
Bodybuilding is fats' worst nightmare, the more muscle you have the more fat your body will burn. Just a few weight lifting sessions a week can literally turn you into a fat burning furnace. To start bodybuilding, go for lighter weights and complete 10-12 reps for exercise. Challenge yourself and make it a goal little bit more each day then you did the day before, with weight training try to commit yourself to three days a week for about 45 minutes with as much intensity as possible. And don't forget your cardio specially morning cardio which helps to boost metabolism and tore stored body fat that the rest of the day. Lean meats, fruits, veggies, nuts, fish, egg whites, and a whole grains should be a major part of your diet. And no matter what supplements claim, none of the pills, power, and bar on the market can do what exercise and proper nutrition can. However, whey protein powder which I consider more of an alternative protein source than a traditional supplement is an effective addition to any muscle building nutrition plan. If you're looking for toned muscles and slim figure a bodybuilding diet and exercise program maybe just what you need to reach your goals.
