I can't see the photos either but based on what she has written I suspect that these are bodybuilding women, and I think I know where she is trying to go with this.

Let me set the record straight before things get out of hand. Muscle can NEVER turn to fat! That is an absolute myth. If these are bodybuilding women, and they stop weight training, the muscle size will simply decrease. Most likely these women will remain tight, but just not as muscular. They will still look defined, but certainly the bodyfat will NOT go up unless they slack on the diet, and then that would be the cause for any additional fat being added.

Weight training for women is a GOOD thing and I highly recommend it. Don't be afraid to add some muscle mass to your body. Muscle burns fat as an energy source, and the more muscle you have the more fat it burns 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

John

I have to agree with John C. Hill on this one. If they stop working out, they'll lose definition and the muscle tissue will gradually shrink. The muscle to fat thing is a myth.

I'm NOT a body builder, but I do work out with weights on a regular basis and have for a very long time. Personally, I don't like the bodybuilder look and I work for long lean muscle mass, but I hate it when I hear women who are afraid to up the weights that they use for fear of bulking up. Women bodybuilders work their asses off - it's literally a lifestyle for those who are serious. You aren't likely to get there using 10 or 12 lbs dumbells to work your biceps and triceps!!!

Oh gosh, my boo-boo! I deleted those pics from Photobucket after I posted here forgetting that the pics were linked to Photobucket. grrrrrrrrrr

Yeah, you all guessed it, but you probably wouldn't be able to guess or even comprehend the last pic. I'll have to redo it.

Thank you John and Katee! There is a difference between getting some daily exercise and intense bodybuilding. The benefits of a little weight lifting is astronomical. Women lose a lot of bone density and muscle mass as they age. Lifting a little bit of weights helps with this. Also, jumping on a mini-trampoline is good too as it stimulates the Lymph glands and helps with bone density.

i have to agree with katee and john on this. but i disagree on the weights mentioned above. you can more than double this (if not triple) and still have long lean muscles. i did this when i was rock climbing and barely hit 93 on the scale. when i had to stop due to job constraints, i sadly lost all the beautiful definition but i never got flabby.

to build up to what i'm sure those pictures showed is something i highly doubt anyone on this forum (except you, john, heh heh, saw your pics, you sexy beast) will ever get to. this is absolutely NO (expletive) reason NOT to exercise, bkkgirl!!!

I agree with you on the amount of weight la vie en rose. I train with weights that are alot heavier, but I also work out consistently. I think the recommended weight per dumbell for someone who isn't particularly fit is something like 3-5 lbs per.

Somewhere in my forties I decided maybe it was time to try this whole exercise thing..I've always been thin so...anyway, I wanted definition. I bought the Tony Little tapes (anyone remember him?) and maybe 5 lb weights tops. After a month, I had muscles in my back (nice!) my shoulders squared (loved it!) and I had the calf thing going. I also had some biceps...BUT...my arms were bigger!! Hated that! I wanted thin, toned arms. That was with 5lb weights. Tried quick reps with lighter weights-nothing....gave up on the whole thing.

Fast forward 10 years, still thin...something's happening around my abs..this is not me. Now trying pilates. I'll never go back to weights...aside from the fact that Tony was getting a wee bit annoying Rolling Eyes

Speaking of muscle turning into fat, did anyone see WWE's Chyna on Larry King live the other day? She was talking about the movie she did with Anna Nicole Smith. Hubby had to point her out to me, I didn't even recognize her!!! Shock She looks quite different now that she's not all pumped up!
