Train like a lady

A lot of ladies are able to radiate their beauty because they train, either in the weights room or with the activity that they love. Beautiful here means they have inner beauty that manifests in how they carry themselves. Ladies who train to improve their physical strength and abilities have a certain aura of confidence which sets them apart and makes them outstanding. There may be a lot of pretty faces out there and a lot are so unattractive due to their vain or other unlady like characteristics. Here are eight things that a lady should do when training be it in the weights room, boxing gym, or anywhere else:

 

  1. Practice good hygiene habits. Putting on makeup, having colorful nails and the latest hairdo are useless if you stink. Lipstick won’t hide teeth stains and plaque. Beauty cannot shine out if it is covered by lousy grooming. Good grooming is beautiful.

 

  1. Shave armpit hair especially if you wear sleeveless shirts. This is obviously a part of hygiene but has to be emphasized since it really stands out. Visualize a lady with make up wearing sleeveless body hugging shirt doing pink dumbell presses while seated on that red stability ball. Zoom in on her armpits as she raises her arms. You see thick forests hidden under each armpit. Instead of emitting fresh oxygen, those dark forests emit fumes rich in sulfur and nitrogen. Now zoom out you vision and look at her face. What do you see? Definitely not a gorilla. That’s an orangutan.armpi

 

  1. Dress modestly when you train. It takes two to tango and girls who wear clothes that reveal their internal organs are inviting a lot of attention. It is good to show off your assets but do it in the right place and don’t overdo it.

  1. Lift weights first before you do your cardio. Most ladies say they do not want to be muscular and want to trim off that bulge. They also want round, firm butts. The way to do that is to train big muscle groups with enough intensity so that they would increase your metabolism. The squat exercise trains the gluteus maximus,  gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, adductor magnus and longus, quadriceps femoris, rectus femoris, erector spinae, and around a dozen more muscles with latin sounding names. I intentionally used those anatomical nomenclature since people want things to sound sophisticated so they would buy into it and feel it makes them so complicated too. Then after your strength training, you can do those cardio exercises while snapping selfies with pouty lips. That burns 2.738% more calories. Selfies with teasing cleavage burns 3.28% more.how a lady trains

 

  1. Use less make-up and ornaments. The gym is not a place to show off jewelries. They would only be damaged, be lost, or cause unnecessary injuries.

  1. Long hair should be tied in a pony tail. Long and untied hair can get into your eyes or anybodies eyes. They can get entangled in cables. And they distract you every time you execute the exercise.

  1. A lady, or anyone else, should not starve herself just before training. Yes, most ladies are obsessed with decreasing their body weight and most starve themselves to do that. If you have not eaten for the past 6 hours or so, have a sandwich and drink a glass of water or fruit juice 30 minutes to 1 hour before you train. Good food is good fuel. You need to fuel your neuromuscular system to be able to focus on what you are doing. Ok, you are looking for those words: You need to have enough GLUCOSE so that you can ENGAGE your CORE, FIRE UP your GLUTES, ACTIVATE your POSTERIOR CHAIN and STABILIZE your glenohumeral joint.

  1. A lady is not afraid to become physically strong. Strong but not necessarily big and muscular. Sometimes ladies may hold themselves back due to perceived “norms” that ladies cannot lift heavy. Ladies can definitely lift heavy without becoming too muscular. It just comes down to a well guided strength training plan. Whatever your fitness goal is, increasing muscular strength helps you reach that goal- be it to lose body fat, to be able to cope with taking care of children, or to be among the best athletes in the world in your sport.

The lady athletes who train need not be told about these a lot of times or they find out the hard way. It may be a bit different in commercial gyms but if you plan to train in any gym, remember that good grooming is a must. I remember one time my wife and I were in a group Muay Thai Class. One time, there was a lady in the group who had a terrible body odor. It was already an embarrassing situation so everybody was trying not to make a fuss about it. But when the instructor told us to pair up, the tough looking guy closest to her was so quick in grabbing a partner at the opposite end of the gym. No one is that tough against a terrible body odor. 

Ladies who truly want to be stronger and better at what they do are some of the best trainees to work with. They acknowledge their weakness and listen to feedback. They are truly beautiful since they know how to take care of themselves- with good grooming and a healthy lifestyle. These ladies Train Better! Live Better!
