Fitness Fact Not Fiction

It's time to set the record straight & get some real information about how women should be training in the gym out into the open.

Last week Richard Tidmarsh's client Millie Mackintosh posted a gym selfie which lead to a general "she is too thin" outcry from 3 or 4 international magazines, all talking about the "worries" of Millie's "extreme weight loss".

So here are the facts.

Mille actually weigh's 1kg more than on her wedding day back in September. How is this possible when she looks smaller?

Simple, Millie has been training hard with Rich and LIFTING WEIGHTS. This as changed her body composition.

In her training with Rich, Mille has actually gone from 23.4% body fat to 17.2% and yet still she weigh's more now than in September. How is this possible you ask? She has added lean mass, and yes, this is a good thing. Looking skinny, but with high body fat isn't what you want!

Millie's training hasn't and never will be about losing weight. It is about becoming stronger, improving her posture and being lean. The lower your body fat percentage, within a safe range, the better your overall health, and yes you do get some lines of definition in key areas that most people like to have.  

Here's what Rich had to say; "Losing body fat, isn't about training hard and not eating. You have to fuel and refuel your body to achieve results. Initially, Mille was pretty scared of lifting weights. But now she wants to know how much weight is on the bar when we do Deadlifts and beat her previous lifts. This shows a huge change in Millie's mentality around training and is why she has got such good results."

So what are the key points.

1) Weight on the scales and BMI are pretty irrelevant. Your Body Fat % is much more important.

2) Ladies need to lift (heavy) weights in their training routine to add Lean Mass.

3) To burn fat, cardio training should be short and sharp interval work NOT long steady state work.

4) Eating well and refuelling after training is another key factor to burning body fat.
