Funny Fitness Fridays Episode 4: Buff Beautiful & Bitchin’ with Vera De Milo

When getting in shape the biggest fear of most women is the loss of a few bra sizes or ending up looking like a man. Unfortunately there is no such thing as spot reduction and your body chooses when and where to take body fat from. However, that is no reason to avoid working out. Most female fitness competitors maintain a very low body fat in general so this is the reason for their smaller breast size. Also, have no fear about supposedly looking like a man. It is impossible for a female to begin to look like a man structurally without some performance enhancing drug help combined with some really hard core and strict training. So get in the gym and stop making excuses before I send Vera De Milo aka Jim Carrey to your door for some personal training.

Nike’s Big Butt Campaign | The Atlantic Wire

Get your butt in shape but spot the giveaway mistake

You’ve got to love Nike for this one. Coming from a guy who can not only appreciate the strength and power associated with strong glutes and also the aesthetic benefits as well, I have to say Nike is doing the world some good. Running, jumping and generally being stronger and more stable has a lot to do with glute strength. For women it’s especially important to have strong glutes to keep the knees in alignment during activity. The glutes are also one of the largest muscles in the body. The simple fact that in so many people the glutes are inactive makes me shake my head. All that fat burning potential wasting away. Well it took Nike 20 years but they’re finally gaining appreciation for Sir Mix-A-Lot.

It’s not easy to add muscle to your frame. For some men it can be a challenge. For women it’s very difficult and is one reason why women should not be afraid to lift weights. With all that said, let’s get down to the point of it all. You want to put on some muscle, but don’t know where to start. Well first of all, make sure you ask people who have experience with putting on muscle naturally. Obviously there are guys walking around that have taken banned substances and they’ll tell you how easy it is to pack on a little muscle. Wrong! Muscle takes time to grow and needs the proper care and nurture when doing it naturally.

So we have 10 tips to help you pack on more muscle. Read more of this post

Top 5 Fat Blasting Exercises (with a Thai twist)

Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t have to include weights although it should if you plan to build a strong and shapely body. In order to burn body fat the exercises you choose should be full body and/or include the larger muscle groups. Check out my top five fat blasting exercises for August.

5. Mountain Climbers- be sure to keep the back in a neutral spine position. In the video the spine is not neutral.

4. Squat Jump you want to tone those legs and tighten those gluts as well as add some shape then these are essential.

3. Plyometric Split Squat – be sure the knee does not go forward over the toes and that you land through the center of the front foot.

2. Burpee – Burpees are high intensity and require a full body explosive movement. If you’re looking to melt away some body fat his exercise is a must.

1. Squat & Press – despite the annoying music in the background this would be a squat & press. I decided to incorporate this particular VDO because we’re in Thailand and I just had to put a local twist on this article. It’s not often you see a woman in Thailand lifting like this and it shows that heavy weights are nothing to fear. If you want to lose body fat and tone then it’s a must!
