Muscular Women

This exploitation of female sexuality in advertising has negative consequences for women. Images of thin models seen, for example, in TV and magazine advertisements, and good-looking muscular men appear daily in magazines, films and television. Thanks to beauty pageants such as “Miss World” and “Miss Universe”, as well as locally organised beauty pageants, teenage girls now define beauty by the shape and size of their bodies with the impression that being skinnier is sexier...love you for you!

"Myth: If you want to put on muscle and burn fat, you should shun all carbs. Truth: Never mind the late Dr. Atkins - you need carbs to build a lean, muscular physique. Much of that, according to Skolnik, is because carbohydrates are the primary fuel for muscle cells during high-intensity workouts. A revved-up gym session burns a ton of calories and stimulates muscle growth, both of which translate into a leaner, meaner you. Take away all the pasta, rice and potatoes and your muscles may be forced to convert protein into energy - a definite contradiction to muscle growth. Carbs are also a must after training because they, along with protein, stimulate muscle repair and hypertrophy. “Carbohydrates consumed postworkout will boost insulin levels that help drive protein into muscle cells,” Skolnik says. So don’t hold back too much on carbs - just keep your choices healthy. After all, research now shows that women don’t burn as many carbs as their male counterparts do during exercise, so you don’t need as much as sports nutritionists once thought. Hers recommends that women involved in serious strength training aim for a daily carbohydrate intake of 1-1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight. Timing is important when your goal is to build muscle and burn fat. Breakfast, pre- and postworkout are the best times to consume carbs. In your post-exercise meal, take in 20-30 grams of fast-digesting carbs, such as white breads and sugars, to boost insulin levels and drive muscle recovery. Otherwise, make sure most of your carbohydrates come from complex sources like fruits, veggies and whole grains."

Women do NOT have the levels of testosterone necessary to “bulk up” the way men do. LIFT WEIGHTS if you want to be “tone” “lean” or “muscular”. Spending hours on the cardio will NOT “tone” you… Just like picking up a heavy dumbbell will NOT make you blow up the next day like Arnold Schwarzenegger. It takes YEARS to develop bodybuilder-size muscle and that is with intense, consistent training, diet, steroids oftentimes and an extreme lifestyle commitment!

This is something you do not expect in a woman. Yes, there are may muscular women out there, but if you are a woman and your muscles start to become like this picture...then it just does not look right.
