www.t-nation.com Women like to say abs are made in the kitchen. Then why do so many struggle in that area? Here's where they're going wrong with their diets and how they can fix them for long-term leanness.

www.t-nation.com Women get curves by building muscle. They show those curves by losing body fat. Why then are they doing everything to make both those things so damn hard?

6 Reasons Why You Gotta Deadlift
by Charles Staley
No other single exercise provides as many benefits as the deadlift:
• Skillfully performed, heavy pulls provide an amazing stimulus for the entire posterior chain, the quads, lats, core musculature, traps, and grip muscles, among others. Simply put, no other lift develops so many muscles at once.
• The strength you develop performing deadlifts has significant positive transfer to almost every other lift you do in the gym. Again, killing many birds with one stone.
• Learning to pull is like earning your Ph.D. in movement mechanics, particularly core stabilization. You'll learn how to maintain a neutral spine under load, and also how to create the intra-abdominal pressure required to maintain a rigid torso on all of your heavy lifts.
• Because we have lots of powerlifting statistics on deadlift strength, you'll be able to rank yourself compared to other lifters. And, unlike the squat and bench press, the deadlift isn't artificially enhanced through lifting suits, knee wraps, etc. So when you see someone pull 800 pounds, you know you're looking at a beast.
• Deadlifts require minimal equipment. All you need is a bar, some plates, and enough space to perform the movement. And unlike the Olympic lifts, you don't even need a particularly good bar!
• The deadlift provides a sense of personal accomplishment not provided by any other lift. There's simply a raw, animalistic feel to it. - CS

Women, eat up your protein: "Choosing chicken over chocolate and hitting the weights hard won't turn you into an "overly ripped" version of yourself. Put your mind at ease and know that this simply won't occur."
www.bodybuilding.com Protein is an essential component of the muscle-building process. Yet, many women stray away from consuming enough protein for maximum results. Let go of fear, bust through myths, and learn about the power of protein!
Second breakfast otherwise known as post-lifting eats: scrambled eggs with chives and organic cheese on whole wheat waffles with grapefruit, v8, and coffee. -Erika

I love running but hate the treadmill but the cold more. So when I run at the gym I imagine Adam's chasing me yelling "commit" and I wonder why I'm running faster than outside...
Sounds like Adam...
