the secret is out...

I lift weights
really I do, the secret to my arms are lifting moderate to heavy weights, I do about 2 sets with 16-20 reps. I say moderate to heavy weights because the amount u lift will vary and depends on the person. YOU WILL NOT BULK UP! You will be rewarded without only better bone density, but lean arms, and lean muscles. Did you know that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn just existing and your body with more muscle on it functions better and burns fat more efficiently

Ok, I know its hard to add anything more to our already busy lives, but it is worth it.  I lift weights in my spin class that I go to at least twice a week. In that class toward the end while on the spin bikes we do weights. Its fabulous. We also through in core. the whole class lasts about 60mins- 65mins. I love it! I dont know what is available to you all, but if you have something like this class. TAKE IT. They play bumping music, and you dont get bored. And usually the instructors are bad ass and tough, so you will burn calories. Someone told me, not sure how accurate, but some one told me you can been an average of 500- 800 calories per spin session. 

get hooked, its worth it.


  1. i have been wanting to try a spin class for such a long time - but am scared cause i have knees that are iffy from playing basketball back in high school (over 11 yrs ago) - but maybe one day i will.....i've heard nothing but great things about it.

  2. spin is perfect for bad knees. Its surprisingly low impact!

  3. I just added weight training into my gym routine today, after conquering my fear of the equipment!
