Make your body tingle with energy Just try walking briskly at a rate fast enough to make your thighs and rear-end tingle. That way, you know you are stimulating fat while simultaneously massaging skin. Moreover, you are raising your external body temperature. You can spend $100s of dollars at a spa trying to get same effect in some body wrap or massage machine. Spare yourself hassle and get real results from gym or on trail.
3.Make most of weight training The most ridiculous fear that arises from women when I suggest weight training is unfounded cry, “But I don’t want to get bulky and muscular!” Please. Too many women in gym today are hardly in any danger of developing muscle simply because they are not properly training or eating to gain muscle.
The only way to get “bulky” with muscle is to consistently train for years lifting heavy weights and eating a generally bland diet that’s rich in protein. With that, it’s critical to make most of your muscle training minutes in gym. Granted variety of weight lifting techniques remains endless, here’s some basic steps for increasing your muscle mass:
Eat before lifting Eat at least 45 minutes before lifting weights. While, your stomach should not fill bloated with food, having some nutrients in your stomach will ensure that you have enough energy to actually lift weight and perform enough repetitions to promote muscle growth.
Lift enough weight to feel your muscle burn after 8-10 repetitions. The whole point of lifting weights is to tear down muscle you have so that it will repair itself and grow back stronger and more plentiful. If you are not burning, it’s likely that you are not breaking down muscle.
Refuel your muscles with protein and carbohydrates immediately after lifting weights. Professional bodybuilders strategically plan their day to ensure that they get their protein within at most 45 minutes after having lifted weights. This is because muscle needs fuel to repair itself. If you skip feeding a repairing muscle, it will not grow, or at best you’ll reap minimal results.
Moreover, a resent study published in June 2004 edition of International Journal of Sport Nutrition & Exercise Metabolism confirmed that after resistance training, a meal containing protein and carbohydrates produced more muscle growth than a meal consisting purely of carbohydrates.
Consistent dieting habits, exercising and resistance training effectively eliminate cellulite. This three-tiered strategy reduces excess fat and tones skin- collectively revealing a smooth, bump-free backside. Though you may hate method, it produces visible results four to six weeks with regular usage.
