Read a few of his hubs on the subject. Good information too. I never go to the gym because you either get pushed around by steroid robots or others are stomping the foot waiting to get on the machine. That's why I have a small home gym or outdoor activities to try and stay fit.
I think you gals should go to a diff. gym..the one I go to they hog the leg/weight machines..they hog all the weights. I just go up and say "Looks good, time to give those bad boys a rest" and they jump off and I'm good to go! Try my gym!
They don't need to...Look at any old man and you'll more than likely see scrawny legs and a sagging, tiny ass, both of which most women are jealous. Perhaps not a sagging ass, but certainly a small one. And why? Because it takes we girls hours of walking nowhere on treadmills and swimming for miles from wall to wall in order to achieve the same skinny legs and tiny ass.
My husband has the tiny ass, and skinny, muscular Scottish legs along with a larger-than-healthy belly where all his weight gravitates.
Perhaps it's because there seems to only be advertisements featuring upper body toning. I rarely see commercials for the lower body except those specifically targeting womens thighs. Maybe it's the macho male thing to concentrate only on the chest and abdomen for that eight pak look. I was athletic in school as a swimmer for long distances. That kept the lower body toned and muscular. Now, I alternate with biking, skating, and elyptical jogging to work on the lower legs.
