Top 2 Weight Lifting Myths for Women

1. Lifting Weights will cause you to Bulk - False
    Truth: Women have 10 to 30 times less testosterone than men, because of that women are much less equipped to gain muscle mass. BONUS: You will however, develop muscle tone and definition.

2. Weight Lifting won't help me burn fat, so I'll just stick with the treadmill- False
     Truth: Strength training 2 to 3 times a week for two months can help you gain at least 2 pounds of muscle and lose at least 3.5 pounds of fat. BONUS: Also, as lean muscle increases so does your metabolism and causes you to burn more calories all day long.

Want to gain mass this fall? Try GOMAD

"Everyone on these heavy squat programs who drank enough of it (milk) gained weight. Yes,  everyone we've heard of." -Dr. Randall J Strossen

Adding 1liter to 4 liters (roughly a gallon) per day is the simple GOMAD (Gallon Of Milk A Day) approach to mass gain. It is generally known as a suggestion to add a single liter per day each week and keeping a close monitor on fat gain, which can accelerate. For many people this is the only dietary change needed to stimulate growth.
