Hundreds of women have seen good results with a program called Bikini Body Workouts by Jen Ferruggia. What is it that makes this workout so effective for women? It all comes down to the basics, really.
One thing that Jen emphasizes is weight training for women who want to lose weight or get the “toned” look. Women sometimes shy to do weightlifting because they are afraid of getting to big or looking masculine. That’s really a shame, because resistance training is one of the absolute best ways for girls to change their bodies. This has been proven by both science and experience for decades. You can see plenty of athletic, lean women who got that way by doing squats, etc.–the same types of exercises that a man might do. So don’t fear the gym, ladies–get ready to pump some iron with the boys without fear of looking at them. But speaking of boys, don’t be surprised if they start noticing you a little more after you develop a toned, feminine physique.
Bikini Body Workouts guides women through complete, total body workouts designed to build muscle and burn fat. Most of the training is composed of doing “supersets,” meaning training muscle groups in succession with little rest in between sets. A set of squats, for example, may be followed by an upper body exercise. This allows the trainee to work two muscles groups that don’t “compete” with each other. In other words, the heart rate is increased and calories are burned without one particular muscle group getting too tired.
These types of workouts are great for the objectives I have described: lean and sexy, not big and bulky. But remember something: doing these kinds of routines is not easy. They are designed for results, not ease. Any good workout that gets you in shape and burns fat is going to be pretty intense. Bikini Body Workouts is no exception!
Diet is also a major component of this program. Trainees are encouraged to increase their intake of protein and cut back on calories that are consumed in the form of carbohydrates. This is not some kind of gimmick or fad diet–it just comes down to achieving a negative calorie balance. Women will find that they can build a sexy body without depriving themselves of delicious food.
It is very important that you follow Jen Ferruggia’s diet advice carefully. It is very common to see people go to the gym without seeing any results. In many cases this is simply a matter of lack of planning in terms of diet. If you follow the diet carefully you will see results. But if you don’t implement this important component of the program you are likely to be very disappointed. Great physiques are made in both the kitchen and the gym. Don’t forget that.
What about cardio? Well, Ferruggia discusses it in the program. It is not as important as weight training, she argues, but it can help you burn additional calories and improve your overall health and conditioning. She encourages her followers to consider doing more intensive form of cardio training (often called “HIIT“) instead of doing more traditional treadmill type training. HIIT, or high intensity interval training is quite different from just walking on a treadmill or peddling a stationary bike for an hour. It is designed to jack up your heart rate for a short time period then allow yourself a short rest period. You alternate between the two, burning lots of calories in a fairly short amount of time. One nice thing about this way of doing cardio is it is a lot more interesting. It is also a lot more time efficient than the before-mentioned steady-state style of training.
I need to repeat something I have said before: Anyone who wants to try this workout should be prepared because it is not easy. The training is designed to be safe and effective, but it is intense. Any program worthwhile is doing will require hard work and sweat.
In the end I think you’ll be quite satisfied if you order this program and fully implement everything Jen Ferrugia advises for three to four months. You’ll be amazed at the changes in energy level and your appearance.
