Women’s Health Lift to Get Lean: A Beginner’s Guide to Fitness & Strength Training in 3 Simple Steps

Research shows that building muscle helps the body burn more calories 24/7 and that resistance training is the most effective way to torch body fat. Yet that message is still lost on many women who fear that weight lifting will make them bulky, turn their skin green, and give them Incredible Hulk muscles like their boyfriends’. Women have more options than step aerobics or running on a treadmill to shed pounds: They can weight-train in a very specific manner designed to make the most of a woman’s unique physiology.

Lift to Get Lean is the first beginner’s guide to strength training from Women’s Health that is written specifically for women by a woman. Holly Perkins is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) who has been teaching the fat-burning secrets of weight training exclusively to women for more than 20 years. Perkins doesn’t follow men’s rules when it comes to building muscle. Her Lift to Get Lean delivers a three-step system: Technique, Movement Speed, and the Last 2 Reps Rule, which make all the difference in developing the kind of strong, lean, and sexy body women want. Perkins offers four different 90-day training programs that efficiently build functional strength along with leaner legs, stronger arms, and a sexier butt.

BESTOYARD Folding Trampoline – 48″ dia with Safety Handle for Indoor Garden Workout Cardio Training


Whether you’re a fitness buff looking to add a new workout method to your repertoire, an elderly or sedentary person looking for a safe and low-impact way to ease into exercising, or something in between those extremes, the folding fitness trampoline workout will suit your exercise needs. And it will also be some of the best fun you’ve had in years.

There’s nothing to compare with the feeling of weightless flying you get from bouncing on a trampoline. You won’t even feel like you’re exercising or working out — you’ll just feel like you’re having fun like a little kid.

But a trampoline workout is a great form of exercise. It’s low impact, excellent for cardio/aerobic fitness, for building strength in your legs, buttocks, abs, and torso, and for developing balance and coordination. It’s also a wonderful stress-reliever, promoting your emotional health as well as bodily health. You can find lots of articles and videos on the web with exercises and routines for the mini-trampoline or rebounder.

So the BESTOYARD mini-trampoline is your ticket to all these terrific benefits. It features rugged stainless steel construction, a foldable design for compact storage, an optional and adjustable handrail, and much more. It’s one of the best mini-trampolines available, and at a great price.

Note: Trampoline supports up to 290 lbs; recommended maximum user weight is 150 lbs.
