When I asked her about her gym routine she said she was spending 30-45 minutes on the elliptical trainer, followed by some core and arm exercises. Sound familiar?
So many women today are so fearful of “bulking up” and becoming “too muscular” that they oftentimes avoid the weight machines, barbells and dumbbells completely.

In the automobile world there are 4 cylinder, 6 clyinder and 8 cylinder engines on the market. With the current price of gasoline, many would prefer the economic 4 cylinder engine car. The 8 cylinder just uses too much fuel. But if we could think of our metabolic rate (or the rate at which we burn calories) as a car engine, we would all want to be an 8 cylinder engine.
