Ages ago, Harry ordered me the most amazing, most orange pair of shoes I’ve seen for my birthday and finally they are in my size and in my house, excellent
Have scanned endless reading lists but don’t want to read up on a load of outdated / discredited works if they aren’t going to help my studies in any way. If there’s anyone out there that’s studied Anthropology / International Development: which books do you recommend reading before beginning a degree ?
I’m 22 now, the last couple of months have been great, the latest Batman sucks and if you like it you’re a moron, I’ve got a great tan, thanks
Matt took Harry and I to the best American diner on Brighton sea front for our birthday meal
Thought I’d post this given that there’s a lot of misinformation out there concerning girls lifting weights; most of it coming from assumptions made by people that don’t actually know much about health, fitness and nutrition.
Lifting weights, if done correctly, is good for you. You won’t turn into a huge bodybuilder type, you’ll just be toned and strong. The amount of hours you’d have to spend working out alongside the huge quantities of food necessary to obtain a ‘bodybuilder’ physique equates to being more or less a full time job.
I have the slimmest arms out of most people I know and that’s because I lift weights. I also manage my diet pretty well but for the sake of working out that should be a given for anyone looking to get fit anyway.
As with any other exercise, the way you execute weight lifting is a key factor in what the results will be. Heavy weights with a lower rep count will build muscle and lighter weights with a higher rep count will burn fat. Each will contribute to the other a little of course, but that’s your basic guideline.
ANY exercise will help you lose weight, build muscle and set you on the path to obtaining the body you want. It’s also important to remember that weighing yourself isn’t necessarily the best way to track your progress - muscle is heavier than fat and so measuring your waist, thighs, hips and arms also makes for a clearer indication of how much you’ve lost or gained.
