Training time with Anne Freitas

Training tips from Anne Freitas

The abdominal muscles are like any other, so you also need to work heavy that is, put a lot of weight and rest to get the hypertrophy. But this hypertrophy is not worth it, if it is hidden below a fat layer. So the only way to get lean abs is by having a balanced diet and aerobic exercises, decreasing the body fat percentage. The abdominal muscles have a very good fibrosis recovery, this way they can be stimulated 2 or 3 times a week, making sure there is a 24 hours rest. Demystifying some very common & frequent facts in the gyms, there is not a certain type of exercise that work only isolating one specific abdominal muscle. There are certain angles and movements that work a bit more certain abdominals areas. So is it very important on the training elaborations to mix different exercises, such as:

  • Abdominal Crunch on the bench
  • Leg Raise on the incline bench (lifting the pelvis)
  • Lateral Crunch on the bench

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.

Bent Barbell Curls for Women


THENEST: “Step 1 Hold the barbell with an underhand grip. Your palms should face away from your body as you stand erect with your arms extended at your sides. Set your hands shoulder-width apart. Step 2 Exhale as you raise the bar to your upper chest by bending your elbows. Your upper arms should remain still for most of the lift, but they can move forward slightly at the end, to allow your forearms to reach a vertical position. Step 3 Inhale as you lower the bar slowly to the starting position. Perform at least eight repetitions.”

Renne Toney: Bodyweight Training

Well, this is my second Renne Toney post of the week. The first post was about the 200lb bodybuilder proving her 20″ arm claim.

As we see in the video below – Renne puts them to work bench pressing Linda – after doing squats with Linda as bodyweight.

Female. 20 Inch Arms. Proven

renee toney front doub bi

Renee Toney is one the largest female bodybuilders in history. At a competition weight of over 200lbs [yes I typed that correctly] she boasts arm measurements of just over 20 inches.

For anyone who isn’t a hardcore bodybuilding aficionado, claims of 20 inch arms are regularly disbelieved from male bodybuilders.

Don’t believe me? Hop onto a bodybuilding forum and post you have 20″ guns and wait for the onslaught of “STFU/LOL/WTF/Liar/Bullshit etc“. Despite outlandish claims made by many, 20″ arms are pretty hard to obtain and very rare…for males.

That measurement is generally thought to be not even feasible for females [discounting the obese of course].

Well Renee had her arms measured proving her claims of 20 inchers, and with the wonders of modern technology shared it with the world. Watch below…

If anyone cares, my arms are 10.5″, however in my defence my quads are 20″ so please take that into consideration.
