A lot of trainers would say no. In fact, I disagree, and I believe that in a few specific ways, men and women need to train quite differently. Firstly, the idea that only the hormones are different is flawed, fundamentally. So, while I agree that on just about any level that there are many similarities in the way you can approach training, I recognize that there are some things that need to be taken into.
Forgive me for generalizing, but men and women typically have very different goals.
Even when a man and a woman have the same goal—fat loss, for example—they will still have different micro-goals within the context of that macro-goal. Keeping those micro-goals in mind is of the utmost importance…especially if you want to keep the client happy. In most cases, your warm-up should bear a fair similarity to your actual training.
And yet, more often than not, you see women getting ready for fast-paced, intense workouts warming up with a lame minute walk on the treadmill, or an even lamer series of stretches. Both are time wasted that could be spent getting you to your goals. I always have my clients warm up with full-body exercises and dynamic bodyweight circuits. Skipping rope and performing calisthenic exercises like jumping jacks work the entire bodyand prepare you neurologically for the workout to come. This will allow you to get more out of each exercise, as your body will be primed to perform as a unit—this is especially true if you do a lot of full body movements in your training.
In addition to that, dynamic warm-ups also get your heart rate up over a shorter period of time, and allow you to burn more calories and get into the groove faster. Given that I maintain that men and women should train differently for differing goals, it stands to reason that I assert there should be certain aspects of training that carry over when goals are similar.
One goal that men and women have in common is that we all want a firm, toned, sexy look. One of the best ways to get that look, for men or women, is with heavy weight. How heavy and how often will depend on the goal. I train a lot of women who focus purely on gaining strength and almost always train using close to their maximal weight.
It pains me to even have to bring it up. Gaining muscle is a result of a few factors: training methods, dietary considerations, and—as alluded to above—hormonal environment. In terms of diet, it is exceedingly difficult—not to mention unlikely—to gain ificant muscle mass without purposefully eating a Caloric excess.
This is why athletes and bodybuilders eat more than their daily energy needs: so that excess will be used for the building of lean body mass. Regarding hormones, women will always have a harder time putting on mass than men because of certain sex hormones; mainly testosterone. Speaking of training, that brings us back to my main point.
And THAT is exactly what we want: to keep the weight and volume in the right balance to allow us to reap the benefits of heavy training without putting on mass. To that end, I recommend that women spend at least two days per month doing some heavy training. To determine the correct weight, just pick a weight you can lift roughly times. If you can get all 3 sets for 5 reps, increase the weight next workout. Again, I said at least two days per month.
This is the minimum. Speaking generally, I have my female clients train heavy at least once per week; further, there are a lot of women who train almost exclusively with near maximal weights reps. So if you are trying to reduce the size of your thighs and hips, your fat loss will come from all over and you just have to let your body determine how much visible reduction occurs. What if that assessment is only partially true?
I contend it very well might be. A few years back, I attended a seminar led by Dr. John Berardi, who is an expert in the field of sports nutrition.
He is also a world-renowned trainer who works with some of the most elite athletes around. During the seminar, Berardi made a remark about some Olympic athletes he was training; he had an interesting finding regarding fat loss. JB and I discussed this, and although he had a lot of data to back this up, no studies had been done.
Instead, we just had an interesting factoid. That was about 8 years ago, and in that time I have had a lot of opportunities to work stationary bike sprints into a good of my programs; generally for women who found that losing lower body fat was a hardship. And you know what? None at all…at least, none that I can base on anything but broscience and black magic. For most, this is an acceptable risk, and for the rest, an unexpected benefit. Huge legs is not something women typically ask me for when they want to sculpt their version of a sexy body.
If you are struggling with this area of your body and you have access to the equipment, you MUST give this a try. Variables such as training frequency, set and rep schemes, and the aforementioned volume and load weight are the most commonly manipulated facets of training. With regard to training, density can be described as the amount of work you do in a given time period. Density is actually one of the easiest variables to manipulate for progress: simply do more in less time.
Doing more work in less time has a of incredible benefits: increasing the rate of fat loss, aerobic and anaerobic training, and an increase in work capacity. Over time, increasing density will make you stronger, leaner, fitter, and MORE capable of performing. That has carryover to nearly every other type of training and will have implications for accelerated progress down the line. One of the simplest ways to increase density is to shorten your rest periods.
If you normally rest 45 seconds between sets, try cutting it down to 35 or less. If you are going to squat, rather than just do 15 reps, perform squats for 30 seconds and see how many reps you get. On your next set, try to beat your of reps; maintain good form, but try to in increase speed. These methods are great fat loss, but because of the increased work capacity, often also help to increase neurogenic and myogenic muscle tone: so, increasing your workout density can increase your body density.
Well, we made it this far without me getting too graphic. I like it when a girl has a nice, well-formed, athletic booty. Either way, this is an article intended to help women build sexy bodies, and to me, nothing is sexier than a good backside. Well, write your own article then. You already know two of the best exercises for your glutes: the squat and the lunge.
Here is a quick way to make them more effective at least for your butt. Wide stance squats with your toes pointed out place a greater emphasis on the glutes ; make sure to focus on flexing and squeezing as you perform the movement. For lungesgo back, not forward. Forward lunges place a lot more emphasis on the section of the quadriceps at the base of the knee—most specifically the vastus medialus—especially eccentric emphasis. Conversely, when you lunge backward, your glutes get a lot more work on both the moving and non-moving leg and the section of the qu that run up and down the length of the femur rectus femoris get a bit more work.
Of course, I should mention that most of the time this is majoring in minutia, but there are those who do put on muscle in the thighs a bit more easily so this is relevant to some. On a side note, those people would do well with the cycle sprints mentioned above.
Our progenitors subconsciously credited desirable traits like maternity, productivity, and fertility to corresponding physical attributes. Certain physical traits are what we call mating qualifierswhich means that from an evolutionary perspective, these traits are attractive to members of the opposite sex because of what they imply. Just as a man with broad shoulders instantly projects an image of strength in our subconscious, a woman with a narrow waist and shapely hips makes us specifically men more attracted to that woman because she is built in a way that implies fertility.
The cool thing about this is that even though our perception of what is sexy changes as a society, because of the way these qualifiers work in terms of attraction is based on unchanging ratios, they are still relevant. The reason for that is the golden ratiowhich in this case is going to refer to hip-to-shoulder comparisons and hip-to-waist comparisons. With women, we want the athletic shoulders to taper into a small waist and then bloom out into sexy hips.
This is something called the Venus Factor. The commonality behind those s is the ratio of the waist to the hip and shoulders If you truly want to have a sexy female body—in the truly evolutionary and procreative sense of the word—train in a way that helps you develop a body that falls within those ratios.
This means spending more time focusing on building strong, sexy shoulders using exercises like the push press and lateral raise, as well as worrying less about making your butt smaller and focusing on the strength-building, multi-t movements that will improve its shape.
