I’ve been thinking about strength training, but then I read about how it’ll only work if you’re like, already thin and if you’re still fat you shouldn’t bother until you loose more weight, because then you won’t be toned. But then I’m told that this helps boost your metabolism so it can actually help you lose weight. Then I read things about how women should be lifting “heavier” weights (this is apparently the popular workout among feminists) and I can’t help but think, “but, I can’t even do a push up, how am I lifting really heavy weights?”
It is usually results in my being really confused, giving up, and just sitting on the couch watching TV because I can’t figure out what the hell anyone is saying. And I find strength training so boring. SO BORING.
I immediately discount anything that comes out of Fitness, Women’s Health, Shape, etc. because I feel these magazines are all bullshit and guess what? MAYBE I DON’T WANT A FUCKING THIGH GAP. Yeah, that’s right, you read me. NO THIGH GAP. HA.
So, does anyone strength train? What’s some good reading I can do that’s not just shaming me and yelling “PICK UP HEAVY WEIGHTS”?
