It's day 4! You're getting closer and closer to the end of week 1. You should be feeling pumped and having fun.
Today you're going to work your Legs (quads, hamstrings, and calves) as well as your Abs.
Today's workout should be intense and fast paced.
Before going over the workout, I'd like to talk about two major misconceptions in regards to working out with weights.
1 If I Work Out, I Will Look Like A Bodybuilder
The truth is you can use the same techniques that professional bodybuilders do to achieve low body fat, boost metabolism, and shape their bodies - and you can do all this without looking like a bodybuilder!
Ladies, the idea of lifting weights may scare you into thinking you'll get "bigger" rather than "leaner". Just know that women are not designed to build big muscles - hormonally it is very, very difficult and it is a very slow process.
Muscle is what gives desirable curves to the ladies and brawn to the guys. In fact, muscles take up less room on your body than fat and will only improve your appearance.
2 It's Genetics - That's Why I'm Fat
Let me tell you why that's not true. Yes, there are extremes in which genetics plays a large part in someone's ability to be fat or thin.
But no matter what - your situation can be helped with balanced nutrition and exercise.
Everyone can improve!
There's a good chance that you're going to feel a bit sore after that leg workout today so make sure you do some stretching after your workout. Leg workouts do really take it out of you, so aim for at least 8 hours of sleep.
