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.
Weight training in the gym isn’t a mindless act of working out on random machines and repeating the same exercises over and over again hoping for a different result.
When it comes to female weight training, myths and false perceptions abound. Many women are too intimidated to even set foot into a gym, imagining a terrifying scene of unfamiliar equipment and people’s perfect bodies. Some women worry that if they do begin strength training, they might turn into muscle-bound freaks. This will not happen. Strength training is as much about toned fitness as it is about building muscle.
