Skinny Fat

I've been contemplating writing a blog post for women assuring them that using a weight lifting routine won't make them "HUGE".  But there are plenty of articles out there on the topic.

Anyway, today I came across a CrossFit blog post on "Skinny Fat", which I thought addressed this issue very well. So rather than recreate the wheel, check out the article below.

Check out Skinny Fat here... It's a great reminder for women not to fear the weights.

I should state that while GTS incorporates elements of powerlifting, olympic lifting, strong man plyometrics, high intensity intervals, multiple planes of motion, and sports specific training, it isn't (at least at the moment) affiliated with Crossfit.  If you're not local and looking for a similar style of training to GTS then Crossfit might be a good fit for you (assuming you know the core lifts, or have someone available to teach and progress them properly).
