I have noticed at the gym and on the internet discussion boards, that many females don’t get the respect of hard-training athletes like most men do. So many women have fallen victim to the mind set that they don’t have to train hard to get “”Toned”" Or maybe most think there are certain exercises that are MAN exercises and there are those that are “Girl” exercises.Click here to continue reading
