Is Your Training Program Preventing You From Seeing Results?

Over the last 9 months, we have been working on something very exciting — a comprehensive training and nutrition resource for women:

The Modern Woman’s Guide To Strength Training.

It will be available next week, and we are SO excited to share it with you!

TMWGTST manual cover

As a little precursor to the release of our program, and to build some excitement, we have filmed a couple of videos for you with fantastic content we think you’ll really enjoy.

In the first video, we discuss:

– The biggest myth in women’s training programs

– The anatomical reason that women’s programs should differ from men’s

– Why most popular exercise programs actually slow fat loss after an extended period of time

===> Is Your Training Program Preventing You From Seeing Results? <—–

 

You see, it’s absolutely heartbreaking to watch so many women absolutely killing themselves in the gym, day after day, while getting minimal results.  Not to mention, this level of intensity cannot be maintain over the long haul.  This is critical information that could keep you from wasting hours of time in the gym doing the wrong programs — so be sure to check it out!

And if you think anyone else you know could benefit from this information, please share it with them!

As a thank you, everyone who watches the video will be entered to win one of 3 prizes:

1. An entire GGS wardrobe  for FREE (valued at $350)

2. A FREE copy of The Modern Woman’s Guide To Strength Training (up to 10 winners)

3. A FREE Girls Gone Strong Manifesto Tee (up to 10 winners)

Oh, and after you watch the video, you’ll see an option to share it.  The more you share it, the more times your names goes “into the pot” to win one of our prizes, and the more women you can help break this vicious cycle of killing themselves in the gym.

Winners will be announced Monday night, April 28th on the Girls Gone Strong Facebook page!

    love this! You girls are a big reason why I started getting serious about lifting and it’s now my favorite way to workout. Can’t wait to hear more!

    • Molly Galbraith

      Abi – AWESOME! So glad to hear this!

      Stay tuned for Friday and Sunday’s videos and we will share much more with you! :)

  • EvBailey

    I watched the “First Video” that mentions staying tuned for another video that talks more about this subject. Where do I find the next video? I’m having serious issues with working out like crazy (with weights and cardio/boot camps) but just cannot lose weight. Lots of excess fat in midsection, have to assume it’s Cortisol….so what is the solution!????

    • Molly Galbraith

      EvBailey – thanks for watching. We are excited that you want more info and can’t WAIT to share it with you!

      And keep in mind, depending on the intensity/frequency of the workouts, they might be part of the issue. But stay tuned for Friday (and especially Sunday’s) videos as we should be able to give you the solution! :)

      • EvBailey

        The workouts are fairly intense, some of them are Boot Camps done at the HIT Center (High Intensity Training Center) in Jax… an hour long workout led by a trainer, usually very intense. The weights workouts are fairly intense as well, and I keep them varied every couple weeks. I eat fairly clean, mostly lean protein, veggies, and only a few complex carbs early in the day, and drink a ton of water. I’m eating and working out great, but I have gained 12 lbs….and my midsection is more fat then it’s ever been. I’m 25 lbs over where I was 3 years ago when I competed in TriFitness, and I don’t know what to do. I know alcohol is bad for weight loss, so I only have a couple drinks with friends every week or two, so it can’t be the cause of this ridiculous plateau. I’m a single mom with 3 kids, and a reasonable amount of stress, but this isn’t NEW…. I don’t know why my weight is 20 lbs higher than it was 3 years ago when I was doing the same things! ARGGHHHH!

  • Luzmin Fernandez

    This is a great topic and I am glad it is being addressed since we are hormonally different than men. I do have the midsection weight gain and it has been a struggle to obtain the results I want (build muscle, get stronger and lose fat) as I progress through my 40’s . All this in spite of intense workouts and mindful nutrition. Looking forward to getting more info on this.

    • Molly Galbraith

      Luzmin – thanks for watching. We can’t WAIT to share more information with you! And keep in mind, depending on the intensity/frequency of the workouts, they might be part of the issue. But stay tuned for Friday (and especially Sunday’s) videos as we should be able to help! :)

      • Luzmin Fernandez

        I signed up for the email notifications and will be sure to watch Friday and Sunday. Thank you Molly!

  • Amanda

    When can we expect the second video?

    • Molly Galbraith

      Hi Amanda! Second video is Friday, third on Sunday! :)

  • esagle

    This is such great information – I’m a Physical Therapist and have to explain exactly the importance of mobility/flexibility vs stability and how there needs to be the right balance to be safe, strong, and fit. Looking forward to video 2 :) Plus, I’d love to actually win something some day – that would be awesome :)

    • Molly Galbraith

      esagle – We are SO glad you liked it! We are hoping to make it easy to understand for every woman (and man!) so they can stay healthy while getting strong! There are so many chances to win this time around… fingers crossed! :)

    I am in this vicious cycle now… work out…keep calories down…nothing happens….work out more….nothing happens…. more hungry…eat more…nothing happens….stop eating more…work out less…now I’m in the totally unmotivated phase…frusturating to keep trying with no results. I need loose about 10 lbs,and loose fat from midsection. I’ve done several beach body programs, even all weight ones. I find more weight I add the more my shoulder hurts. I’m glad you mentioned something about this in video. I know I might need increase my weight, but it hurts and not in a good “feel the burn” way. I know weights are the key, but how do I increase weights without pain. I’m on the rollercoaster and want to get off!

      First off, I hear you. Your frustration is understandable, but your efforts are applauded. Now, to dig deeper (pardon the Shaun T echo).
      When you try these different “cycles”, we’ll call them, how long are you giving it? A few weeks or a few months? Fitness is such a practice of patience. Giving your body enough time to adjust can be key to any new routine. Shoulder issues; I really hear you. Seek the advise of a PT or chiropractor, preferably someone who specializes in sports medicine. You could have a minor tear which needs months of rest in some cases.
      Hunger: stop right there. No program ever succeeded long term, with an athlete who was hungry all the time. The three key components to any fitness lifestyle are movement, fuel and rest. Anyone can workout 3 hours a day and get 8 hours of sleep, but what that person puts into their body makes or breaks the effort. Don’t sabatoge a hard workout with bad refueling habits. Be sure to get ENOUGH fuel as well. Far too often people push themselves physically but then don’t fuel enough to repair the damage done. Protein is your repair friend and exercise damages muscle tissues. That’s how we get stronger. Just how a marathon runner needs enough good carbs to run, someone who wants to create more healthy muscles needs enough protein to repair. How much? Take your body weight in kilograms (your weight x 0.454) and multiply it by 1.2 (low-mod activity) – 1.7 (very active). That number is the amount of protein you should be eating daily.
      Try to think of your body in terms of health and not vanity, and those last 10 pounds are likely vanity pounds. You want a healthier, more physically fit you, not “I need to get rid of my mid section” (I’m sure you’ve heard that you can’t spot reduce). All the sit-ups in the world aren’t going to give anyone a flat stomach. With a solid exercise routine, healthy eating habits, and quality sleep, you will feel your best. Focus more on healthy organs, a fine tuned respiratory system, strong muscles, less on mirrors and scales. I see marathon runners and triathletes all the time. Not a ONE has a “supermodel” figure. But they are all in the best health of their lives.
      Remember: it takes 3 cookies to erase a 5K.

  • Paula Eagan Noble

    I really wanted to watch this video and the bullet proof your body videos because I didn’t get a chance last week on vacation, and now both links just go to the promo for the strength training guide. Which is a great video, yay GGS!, but I want to watch the others :-(

    • Molly Galbraith
