Fitness for women or men for that matter should be the number one target for every
individual. By increasing your fitness level you will improve you’re over all health
and well being with the added bonus of improved body shape. On top of this women
should not only look to increase their cardiovascular exercise but also their resistance
exercise. Don’t worry you won’t turn in to a muscle bound Amazonian warrior by lifting
weights. A woman body is lacking in the levels of testosterone that would be needed
to build huge muscles. However one of the major benefits of combining resistance
training in your workout is that it strengthens your bones and helps greatly to prevent
the onset of osteoporosis in later life.
Body shaping is the wise use of certain principles of exercise combined with a healthy
nutritious diet to help make noticeable and desired changes in ones body shape. Some
body shaping programs attempt to combine the resistance exercise with cardiovascular
or aerobic exercise. While this is not easy, and most programs fall short of doing
this successfully, it is quite possible - especially when the body shaping program
uses body-weight exercise principles. The benefit of this type of program is extremely
conducive to what body shaping is all about. You won’t find this kind of work out
in the gym though, you really need to be working in a group and this is where TEAM

TWO MAJOR FAT BURNING MYTHS BUSTED!

wings and muffin top.’
IT’S A MYTH!There is no such thing as spot reduction! Fat is lost throughout the
body in a pattern dependent upon genetics, sex (hormones), and age. Overall body
fat must be reduced to lose fat in any particular area. Although fat is lost or gained
throughout the body it seems the first area to get fat, or the last area to become
lean, is the midsection (in men and some women, especially after menopause) and hips
and thighs (in women and few men). Sit-ups, crunches, leg-hip raises, leg raises,
hip adduction, hip abduction, etc. will only exercise the muscles under the fat.
2. ‘If I work at a lower intensity a higher proportion of calories you burn will
come from stored fat.’
IT’S ANOTHER MYTH! This principle just does not work in practice. The overall number
of calories you can burn from fat exercising at high intensities (while being a smaller
proportion of total calories burn) will be greater than the number of fat calories
burnt off at a lower intensity exercise routine. In fact by working out at a high
intensity you will raise your metabolic rate and keep burning calories even when
