How To Improve Muscular Strength & Definition

Question: I do your aerobic workouts along with my wife but I would like to take it to the next level. I would like to work on my muscular strength and definition. How should I proceed? My wife doesn't want to bulk up like a body builder.

Answer: Muscular strength can be improved by the use of free weights, weight machines, special bands and other resistance devices. In addition, many of my workouts work on muscle definition. Workouts such as 'Cuts & Curves' or any that have the words 'Sculpt' or 'Tone' in the title or description will work as well.

Improving your muscular strength will generally improve your muscular endurance too. Muscular strength can be improved by progressively overloading the muscles, or continually challenging your muscles with greater amounts of weight or resistance.

Many people, women especially, shy away from weightlifting because they think it will give them large, bulky muscles like the ones you see in bodybuilding magazines. It is important to remember that you can shape your muscles any way you want. If you would prefer toned, tight smaller muscles, they can be attained by tailoring your weight training program.
