Weight training always makes me bulky 😑

I’ve often speak to women who come to me frustrated with their current shape and weight gain …🤦‍♀️

But when I ask questions around exercise I find out that most women don’t really know what they’re doing when it comes to training 🏋️‍♀️
And they just end up “winging it “
Go through the motions
Default to the easiest most convenient comfortable thing 🏃‍♀️
Which is usually some sort of cardio exercise

Maybe they overdo group fitness classes and do back to back classes every day
Maybe do a few weights to “ tone” the arms or legs but nothing heavy because they don’t want to look bulky

They rarely follow a proper training program…and if they do it’s an old program given to them when they first started the gym or something they found free on the internet 🤓

They might do a little CrossFit classes, or F45 Sessions which are brilliant .. but still have no idea how much if at all they are improving let alone what impact that’s having on their body or goals

Getting hot sweaty and feeling like you’ve achieved a good workout is great… but is it really producing the results you want 🤔

If you seriously want to regain your body shape, build muscle tone and lose excess body fat not muscle you MUST measure your progress to have the correct data in order to make the right decisions when it comes to food, exercise and rest

Otherwise how will you know if what you are doing is working? 🤷‍♀️

❤️💙Start by choosing a structured training program that’s in line with your goals, and stops you from “ winging it” on the gym floor hoping to “tone “ the flabby arms

❤️💙Plan your workout before you get to the gym so that’s you KNOW exactly what you are doing the moment you walk on the floor and know what improvements you’re aiming for .. know your intentions for this particular workout

❤️💙Track your workouts. Track the weights you use. The number or reps and sets, the classes you did, The distance and time you ran… track everything . Use a notebook or an app ( I use an app readily available on my phone within my program )

❤️💙 The big thing here is progressive overload.
Working towards getting stronger
Because when you get stronger you’re building muscle
Aim for 1% better every lift, every kilometer, every class, every week
Bit by bit

And how do we know for a fact we are improving? By tracking our progression. 🤓
Tracking the data
Tracking the numbers
Tracking food, workouts, improvements
Tracking sleep and rest 🧘‍♀️

That’s how we know

When we know that … we have become our own metabolic detective 🕵️‍♀️

Whether you do CrossFit, F45, or workout at the gym or home…
Remember that it’s not about the number of calories you “ burn” in a session
It’s not about how smashed your are
It’s not about how sweaty you are..
It’s about results

Join me here tonight at 8pm NZ time and I’ll share the 3 reasons why you’ll continue to fail unless you change these things…
