As you already know, my personal mission is to convince as many women as possible, to start lifting weights and to get rid of the pointless fears, that weights will make them look bulky, manly and too muscular!

Some time ago, I posted a couple articles, where I shared some of the mistakes I used to make in my workouts, and the consequences from them! ( “3 Mistakes That Killed My Progress HERE“; 3 Ways to Get Rid of Muscle Imbalances)

Even though a lot more people start working out and eating healthy, my observations show me that most of them start doing it for the wrong reason, i.e. with the only goal of looking better!

The sooner you realize, that the main purpose behind working out and eating healthy should be your HEALTH, the sooner you will become fit, and the sooner you will start looking the way you’ve always dreamed! Besides that the better you will feel in your own body!

I’ve noticed that most women who go to the gym, usually pick up their exercises on the foundation of a really weird logic! I often hear them say “ I don’t wanna do pull ups, because my back will become huge”; “ I won’t do military press, because my upper body will become too muscular”; “ I don’t wanna squat, because my legs will get big” and so on.

And after all, exactly what are you gonna do? Walk on the treadmill and sit around the ab machines! Wonderful! If that is all, you are about to do in the gym, you better go for a walk in the park and stop every 10 minutes, to complete a couple crunches!

But in case, that you really wanna be in better shape, start choosing exercises, that will help you look better and in the same time improve your health! Look on your workouts as the ticket, which will offer you the best seats, in the theatre of life- those of the healthy, active people!

HERE I explained why it is so important to train your lower body! And today I will remind women, who are afraid of doing pull-ups, presses and push ups, why it is so important to actually include these exercises in your training routine!

Do you have back problems? Or do you have a bad posture? Do you sit with slouched posture? Then, there isn’t anything else, you would need, as much as you should do upper body exercises ( and I am assuming, that you have already started training your lower body, after my last “sermon” 😉 )

Why? The main muscles, which are responsible for the retraction ( the pulling back) of your shoulders, are those in your upper back. In your words, those that “ are gonna get huge from doing pulling movements”. By refusing to work these muscles, you are voluntary cursing yourself to contribute for your bad posture, which is gonna lead to a lot of pain!

How? The main muscles, which do the opposite function of retraction, i.e. take the shoulder forward are the pectoralis and your deltoideus( picture the muscles on your shoulders and your chest). As a consequence of too much sitting in front of the PC and many more activities we do on a daily basis, in a combination with not enough pulling movements to balance this, the pecs and delts become too short!

Thus, the lengthened, not strong enough muscles, which are responsible for retraction, in combination with the shortened muscles, which take the shoulder forward, you have the perfect formula for a bad posture, which leads to a lot of neck, back and lower back pain!

And why is all of this? Because you are stubbornly believing the myths, that exercises are divided into exercises for men and exercises for women! Because you keep on believing that women should not be strong and that women should not lift weights or do a variety of movements in the gym!

ИAnd as I love telling you, women are not the special part of the population! They are just the rest of the population! Women are normal human creatures and their bodies need to be trained in a way that will help proper posture and better functioning!

And I assure you that there ain’t anything scary with lifting weights! I do pull ups, I do weighted push- ups, push presses with over 50kg, different kind of rowing variations with HEAVY weights and my back isn’t huge, my biceps don’t tear the sleeves of my shirts! 😉 So, if you please! Don’t fool yourself and take care of your body! Quit repeating pick up lines from women’s magazines! Search for the logic and when you find it, you will realize how you are supposed to train!

That’s what weights have done for me! Why don’t you try it yourself?

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
