This Is What The Ideal Woman’s Body Should Look Like + Common Mistakes Women Make When Trying To Get In Shape

The main way cardio hinders your fat loss efforts is through the increased production of the hormone cortisol.

Cortisol is catabolic, i.e. it uses up muscle tissue and slows down protein synthesis.

Less muscle mass equates to a slower metabolism and a slower metabolism leads to your body burning fewer calories during rest.

Other effects of high cortisol include:

  • Increased insulin resistance making the body unable to tap into fat stores for energy.
  • Imbalanced ghrelin and leptin levels (hormones that regulate hunger).
  • Suppressed growth hormone and testosterone levels (associated with increased fat gain).

Avoid running on the treadmill at the same speed for prolonged periods of time.

Numerous studies have found High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to be most effective for fat loss2 3 4.

A typical HIIT session involves a brief period of sprinting followed by a longer period of walking.

 

Sample HIIT workout:

15 second sprint followed by 45 second walk, for a total of 15 minutes.

Fear Of Getting Broad

Most women either use weights that are too light or they don’t lift weights at all.

Sure, diet and cardio may help you drop a some fat.

But what will be under it?

The answer is:

Not much! You will still feel flabby.

Lifting weights is what will develop tone and reveal the overall appealing shape of your body.

You will not develop curves using 5lb dumbbells.
