Lift heavy…Trust me.

If there is one thing I have learned from my experience doing Chalean Extreme is that Muscle burns fat, makes you lean, healthy and sexy! I  was stuck in a plateau after my baby was born. I was only doing cardio, and no fat was leaving my body. I then started Chalean Extreme and I watched the fat melt away…

It is a common misconception that women will put on mass if they lift heavy weights. Unless you consume large amounts of supplements, consume steroids, or ingest testosterone… you will not put on mass. Women lack the one crucial element to putting on mass TESTOSTERONE! If you want a lean, strong, sexy body, lift weights. And not just some dinky 5lbs weights here and there, LIFTY HEAVY. Push your muscles to failure. The more your muscles have to repair the more calories your muscles have to burn post work out. Did you know that even after you lift weights your body is burning calories while repairing your muscles. Thats right… while you are sitting on the couch your body is burning fat… isn’t that incredible?

I have made the mistake in thinking that the only way to get lean is to do a ton of cardio. Cardio only burns fat while you are working out. If you mix cardio and weight lifting you turn your body into a lean, mean, calorie burning machine all day lone. Well, what about improving the health of your heart, and your anarobic threshold you ask? If you lift heavy weights you will experience a cardio affect. While doing my fitness program, Chalean extreme, I was squatting 45 lbs on both legs, my heart was pumping out of my chest, and I could barely catch my breath… talk about one heck of a cardio experience.

Fit, lean muscle is the new skinny. Lean Muscle on men and women is sexy. Muscle makes you look younger, stronger, healthier and radiant. Do you want to reverse aging? Gain muscle. Do you want a more efficient, and healthy body Gain muscle. I am not talking about getting huge and bulky people, I am talking about turning your fat into muscle. Unhealthy does one thing to your body… it kills it. Slowly but surely fat will wear you down and age you.
