My wife (Tammy) asked me a few months back what was the best workout for women. She has always loved reading celebrity magazines like US Weekly and People that always have the latest celebrity gossip. She likes to look at the pictures of the celebs and see what shape they are in. A tight stomach and toned arms are always something that impresses her.
She’ll say things like “I want to have arms like Jennifer Anniston or Madonna.” She likes to see nice triceps on a woman and asks me what exercises she should do to get the same look. It is funny how easy it is for women to compliment other women. Most guys aren’t as quick to dish out the compliments about other guys.
[Here's a great example of Jennifer Aniston looking lean and sexy but not too muscular.]
My wife has consistently worked out on the treadmill for well over ten years now, but never had any interest in resistance training. Over the last few years, she has done some Pilates, but never any weight training. When she wanted to know what the best workout for women was, I was really excited. I always wanted to show her how to strength train with weights and the proper form for each exercise.
Best Workout For Women
A few months back, Rusty Moore from Fitnessblackbook.com came up with Visual Impact For Women. I went through the entire men’s version of Visual Impact last year and am currently on the second go around. As I have stated in numerous posts, I am a big fan of Visual Impact as well as anything that Rusty puts out. When my wife asked what was the the best workout for women, I immediately thought of Visual Impact For Women.
I got a copy of it and read through it when it first came out. As usual with Rusty’s stuff, I was really impressed and knew that it would work wonders for any woman that followed it. Like most woman, my wife doesn’t want to look like a woman bodybuilder or some freaky looking musclehead in a dress. (Thank you for that, honey!)
Visual Impact is the only program that I know of actually teaches woman how to not gain muscle and even how to lose muscle if they are too bulky. A lot of woman that have been athletic their whole life or do a lot of running get a little thick in the legs. This program will show you how to gain muscle in the right places and not gain it or even lose it in other areas. The result is a femine, sexy, and in shape look rather than a bulky or thick look.
[Remember Jim Carrey when he was on "In Living Color?" He was hilarious!]
I went over this program with Tammy and she read through the entire course about a month ago. She has been following along with it and has really loved it so far. I always thought that she looked great, but getting more toned and more athletic looking works for me! I can already see a difference in her body as well as her attitude. She just seems more confident.
I really think that Visual Impact is the best workout for women. As my wife goes through the program, I will keep you guys posted about her progress. If you have been looking for a new way to train and want to look lean and sexy versus a dude in a dress, you should check out the women’s version of Visual Impact. Rusty gives a ton of free information away on his site and explains it way better than I ever could.
