The Beauty of Muscle

True: any effective weight loss regime requires more attention to diet than exercise. However, as we hit our 40’s and beyond, working out, becomes crucial if you want to keep your skin tone as firm and taut as possible.

However slim you may become through diet, there are a range of common complaints affectionately referred to as bingo wings, muffin tops and thunder thighs, to name but a few, that can only be dispatched through quite intensive cardio, but more importantly heavy weights.
