In The New Rules of Lifting for Women, authors Lou Schuler, Cassandra Forsythe and Alwyn Cosgrove present a comprehensive strength, conditioning and nutrition plan destined to revolutionize the way women work out. All of the up to date studies prove that strength training, not aerobics, provides the important thing to losing fat and building a fit, strong body. This book refutes the misconception that women will “bulk up” if they lift heavy weights. Nonsense! It is tough enough for men to pack on muscle, and they have got a lot more of the hormone essential to build muscle: natural testosterone. Muscles wish to be strengthened to succeed in a lean, healthy look. Properly conditioned muscles increase metabolism and promote weight loss — It is that simple. The program demands that women put down the “Barbie” weights, step away from the treadmill and begin a strength and conditioning regime for the natural athlete in each and every woman. The New Rules of Lifting for Women will change the way women see fitness, nutrition and their own bodies.
