It’s OK to be strong & smart

Women of a certain age enjoy talking about being bombarded with less-than-empowering media messages when they were girls.

They’re right, of course. Madison Avenue’s idea of the appropriate aspirations for females tended to focus on bouncy hair and mastery of avocado-colored kitchen appliances.

But males have had their own challenges. And summer is the perfect time to bring this up.

Countless impressionable comic-book readers were confronted with the Charles Atlas bodybuilding ad, “The Insult that Made a Man Out of Mac.”

You know the story: Skinny guy, Mac, gets insulted by a big lunkhead on the beach. The bikini-clad girl Mac had been sitting next to immediately grows cold and distant. Mac orders the Atlas program and bulks up. Then, back on the beach, he decks the bully and hears that same girl coo, “Oh, Mac. You are a real man, after all!”

Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns for Women


“Step 1
Sit facing the lat pulldown machine with your knees locked under the roller pads. Grip the pulldown bar with your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and palms facing forward. Lean back slightly from the waist keeping your back straight. (Not sure how much weight to use?)

Step 2
Inhale and then exhale as you pull the bar down in front of your face until it reaches your upper chest.
Step 3
Inhale as you return to the starting position.” SOURCE

Different Training Needed for Different Body Types. What body type are you?

It is important for you to stick to the basics until you get to know how your body responds to weight training. People do not respond the same exact way to training and what works for one type will not necessarily work for another. One method of categorizing body types recognizes three different physical types and it is called “somatotypes”.

The ectomorph: short upper body, long arms and legs, long narrow feet and hands, and very little fat storage. This body type has a narrow chest and narrow shoulders and long, thin muscles.

The mesomorph: large chest, long torso, solid muscle structure and very strong.

The endomorph: short musculature, round face, short neck , wide hips, and heavy fat storage.

No one is totally one type but a combination of all three types. Any body type can be developed with the correct training and nutrition however people with different body types will need to approach their training with different objectives, even though they may all have the same goals.

Interview With Female Muscle Giant Lori Braun

Lori Braun is many things, but first and foremost she is the reigning queen of female muscle. Lori’s websites include Female Muscle, a power house female bodybuilding site, and of course the Lori Braun Blog.

Some call Lori eccentric, some call her wildly creative, but no one calls her dull. And if you don’t believe me, see for yourself. She can be found dancing on a bed or flexing in the shower on Youtube.

Downtownkate is interviewing Lori Braun.

DK: Did you jump on your bed when you were a kid?
LB: Always! Like a maniac with my brother we jumped from bed to bed singing Beatles songs.

DK: Were your parents hippies?
LB: Yes. But not dirty hippies. More like 60’s intellectuals.
