Nice name. Why dont you insert your state and city so we can see what corner of the world you are from.
If a woman is lean (i.e. low body fat), then she wouldnt look bulky. A lot of women think the bulk is LEAN muscle when it really is fat, or muscle cells marbled with
fat cells. Lean muscle cells TAKE UP LESS SPACE than fat cells.
For example, many women are afraid to work tehir arms, for example, because they dont want their arms to be bigger. Well, if you lose the fat on your arms and replace it with lean muscle, then your arms will shrink, not expand. Also, remember that if you add muscle without losing fat
, then your arms may be bigger. That is why some women's right arm is slightly bigger than their left arm -- because the right arm is the stronger arm, with more muscle cells, but still has the same amount of fat cells as the other arm
. So it is stronger (i.e. more muscle cells), yet bigger/bulkier. Know what I mean?
In short, lose body fat, increase lean muscle, and you will shrink thighs, hips, arms, whatever and look nice and toned. And a calorie deficiit is of course also essential. Rememer that remember that muscle takes up less space than fat. Also, rememer fat cells can be marbled around with muscle cells. (Eewww, this just reminded me of a piece of a marbled steak. nasty!!) So that is my opinion on how a woman should go about losing body fat and retain lean muscle: both proper
/smart cardio AND weight training are key, in addition to calorie deficit and you are on your way to a lean, toned, sexy swimsuit body!
What is your body fat %?
I am no expert however. There are some certified instructors on this board which I am sure will take great pleasure weighing in on your questions and my answers. and I would have explained better if I had time but I am going to sleep now cuz I am tired and feel like I'm gonna pass out, even though it is only 6 pm here. So good night all!
