IMG_2666Getting straight to the point; those amazing bodies you see out there isn’t because they hang out on a treadmill, it’s because they know where to get the results.  A recent study done at the University of Alabama at Birmingham compared dieters who just did cardio and dieters who just lifted three days a week.

The results?  While they both lost the same amount of weight, it was those that lifted weights who lost more pure fat, while the cardio bunnies lost some valuable muscle and not just fat.  With that being said, those lifting weights shed more body fat while adding definition to their bodies.  (*Hint *Hint) So if you are looking to make some changes, then weight training is where it’s at.

Whether you simply want to lose body fat, earn a smaller waist, build your booty, gain muscle mass, or just get shredded; the secret ingredient is lifting weights.

3 Reasons Why Weight Training is Sexier than Jennifer Lawrence

 

– 3 –

Weight training is an ultimate fat blaster, especially while combined with a nutritious, high-protein diet. Those two combined right there will eat away fat much faster than cardio would. This is a no-brainer rule for the successful athletes and physiques out there.

 

Tip: Aim for weight training three days a week to hit your entire body, and feel like you don’t need to live in the gym.  Tag cardio or ab workouts on at the end of the training session. I prefer one day for legs, one day for chest, shoulders, and triceps, and one day for back and biceps.  While training, be sure to be refueling your muscles with BCAA’s.

Become stronger for a better quality of life and pursuing dreams.  If you are like most people and want to do great things before they die, then be committed to get strong now, build upon it, and maintain it for decades to come.  Turn that daydream into a reality!  Watching people go for their dreams is pretty hot in my book.

 

Tip: Start with a personal trainer to guide you around the gym and how to use the equipment to prevent getting hurt.  Watch trusted instructional videos, and visualize yourself executing a movement with perfect form before you even get to the gym, and make every rep better than the rep before. Don’t just go through the motions.  Activate the muscles you are isolating.

The number one reason why weight training is sexier than Jennifer Lawrence, is because muscle shows the underlying qualities it takes in a person to earn them beyond physical appearance. Sure, weight training is the secret ingredient to a faster metabolism and can make you visually appealing, but the people who are truly committed to it have deep soul-filled reasons why they love training with weights.

I conducted my own study, simply asking competitive bodybuilders and professional athletes why they find men or women with muscle attractive.  The results showed that they see more than just muscle, but the see inner strength that takes to get there, they see confidence, self-respect, motivation, mental and physical growth, positive mindset, character development, faith, discipline, maturity, and will power. Everything sexy.

If you gain all of this while weight training, imagine the kind of energy in other areas of their life. #unstoppable #sexierthanjenniferlawrence

Tip:   Love your body through the process of becoming stronger and healthier, because that confidence is sexier than anything else!  So dig deep.  Discover what you are made of.  Get strong, live life to the fullest, and go after dreams.

Be inspired by watching this video. 

Disclaimer: The article has nothing at all do with Jennifer, I simply wanted a more interesting title since this subject is written about a million times. Nothing but love! She is gorgeous and nothing personal at all. Of course, like I’ve said in other articles, even muscle and appearance isn’t the sexiest thing about a person…. but who they are, their confidence, and deeper qualities. Doesn’t make one person of higher value compared to the next.  People ask me about gaining muscle and shedding body fat, so here I hoped to make it as simple as possible how weight training does so. Nothing personal!

  1. Obviously I agree that a fit body is far sexier to me than an unfit body, I mean… c’mon. But I hesitate to agree with this article 100%. I think I’m at 90%. That 10% where I was lost is: why was J.Law’s name even dropped? The principles are as solid as your biceps but I was waiting for the explanation that justified her name being mentioned and saying that some thing or idea is sexier(this can also be perceived as “of higher value”) than a person.

    I guess what I do not understand is if you are expressing your point of view (and that of other body builders you surveyed) on body types, or what you believe is a fundamental truth about body types and used facts about muscle building and your survey in an attempt to back it up. If one of these or some variation of them is true, why use Jennifer’s name and not the subject matter at hand that she represents in your mind.

    Mad Love!

    • Hi Cami! The article has nothing at all do with Jennifer. She is gorgeous and nothing personal at all, but simply in search of finding an interesting title in the midst of a million other articles written out there about the same topic about weight training and muscle. Of course, like I’ve said in other articles, even muscle and appearance isn’t the sexiest thing about a person…. but who they are, their confidence, and deeper qualities. xoxo
