So I am still on MC today. That tummy bug has yet to go away completely and I do not like the idea of having to walk a decent distance from my parking space to the office building. And with work that involves a lot of thinking, going to the office with less than 100% is akin to not going to the office at all.
So I'm not going to the office at all.
To while away the tremendously boring time staying at home, I surfed YouTube looking for various fitness videos to give me ideas on how to make my workouts more interesting. Yes, doing the basics (i.e. squats, deadlifts, military press, benchpress) are good enough to make you strong, but it does get boring. Variety is the spice of life.
But I digress. I wanted to talk about how there are so many vids out there tailored for women. Bodyweight for women. Kettlebell for women. Bla bla bla.... I personally think there should be NO difference on how men and women train. You exercise to increase functional strength and both men and women function the same way. So why must there be a difference on how a woman should train compared to how a man trains?
So you want a hot butt. Do deadlifts.
Firmer chest, so your boobs don't sag? Yup, benchpress.
Triceps that don't flap in the wind? Presses. Any kind. And dips too.
But of course, some of it could be marketing. Because there are STILL women out there who think they'll turn into incredible hulk if they lift weights. I've been lifting weights for three years and I'm still a skinny twig. Albeit a stronger twig.
