Collected Fitness Wisdom #5

Women are just really terrified of weights. They're on cardio machines, elliptical for 60 minutes and wondering why they don't see definition and tone. The missing link is strength training.

Normally, arguing with a pilates instructor over the internet is about as exciting as playing Marco Polo with Helen Keller, but I’ll play along and make this short and sweet. For the love of god, pilates DOES NOT lengthen (or elongate) your muscles.

Consistency is key. Challenging yourself 2-3 days per week, week in and week out, is much better than going all out for a couple months and then completely burning out, getting injured, and falling off the wagon.

Effective doesn't mean excessive. This applies to cardio AND weight training. Strive to get the best results from the least amount of work.
