The Importance Of Woman Bodybuilder Fitness
REGULAR LIFT HEAVY!
A lot of women don't know exactly what to do when they're trying to lift heavy. With all the machines and free-weight options, it's understandable if you feel overwhelmed. Once you're armed with a little knowledge, it all becomes easier to manage.

This is why it's important to keep a training journal. You might feel like nothing's happening, but glancing at your training journal and seeing how heavy you squatted today can be a big motivator.

To me, intensity is giving each workout your all striving for those two extra reps after you stop to take a deep
