The New Rules of Lifting for Women
By

Rating
If you believe what most women's magazines tell you, muscles can be 'shaped', 'toned' and 'sculpted' with nothing more than a little dumbbell that weighs less than a can of beans. But muscles aren't modelling clay, and the only way to transform them is to strengthen them. THE NEW RULES OF LIFTING FOR WOMEN is for the woman who's ready to throw down the 'Barbie' weights and start a strength and conditioning programme that will give her the body of her dreams. This book puts to rest the shop-worn notion that women who train with heavy weights will bulk up. Nonsense! Women simply don't have enough testosterone to pack on muscle like a body builder. Here's the truth: lifting weights not only makes you stronger, it also makes you leaner. In fact, most women would have to run twice as long to receive the same fat-burning benefits as weight lifters. A better workout in less time may sound too good to be true, but champion trainer Alwyn Cosgrove creates six months worth of workouts that will build strength, burn fat and rev up the metabolism. His total body workouts target all the major muscle groups and each exercise is accompanied by clear black and white photographs that illustrate proper technique and form. A nutrition plan is another key feature of the book. To gain strength you have to feed muscle and nutritionist Cassandra Forsythe has designed a regime to achieve this goal. She strongly recommends small, frequent meals and offers meal plans, along with fifty recipes, to satisfy women's special needs through breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
