One of the most commonly asked questions women ask me when starting a weight training routine: “Should I use free weights or machines?”
The gym can be intimidating for some women particularly if you are a novice still building up your confidence around working out in the gym and learning how to use all the equipment.
A toned and flat midsection is what most of us aim for so we can fit into our swimsuit.
For a long time it was believed that when a woman became pregnant that she should give up all forms of exercise for the full duration of pregnancy. It was thought to be unhealthy for the woman and unsafe for the unborn child. Now, it is believed that keeping fit and staying active right up until you give birth is essential for the health of the mother and unborn child.
Relaxing and learning to switch off from the daily stress that you encounter from daily life in Vietnam is just as important as regular physical activity for optimal well-being.
