Muscle-building hard truths…
Are any of these news to you?
If you want to TONE UP = BUILD MUSCLE
If you want to GET LEAN = BUILD MUSCLE
If you want to SLIM DOWN = BUILD MUSCLE
If you want to LOSE WEIGHT = BUILD MUSCLE
If may seem counterintuitive, but to lose weight, you need to build (or maintain) muscle.
But you can’t do this if you are…
🔹Focusing on burning calories
🔹Using only booty bands to grow your glutes
🔹Avoiding heavy-for-you weights because you think they’ll make you bulky
🔹Not eating enough to *actually* build muscle (muscle isn’t created from nothing)
🔹Doing random workouts with no goal in mind
More muscle mass = A healthier body = A more toned, lean, slim look and easier, more sustainable weight loss.
My number one tip?
Choose heavy-for-you weights and focus on a simple strength training circuit including exercises like squats, deadlifts, bicep curls, and shoulder presses, 2-3x’s per week, rather than logging an endless amount of hours on the treadmill.
