Understanding Your Body

This is a topic I have to remind myself.  As. Much as I love working out I have to remind myself how my body responds to certain exercise.  I do not know if others experience this, but I am thinking at least one or two people experience the workout cut back.
A workout cutback is when you know a good exercise is great and give you that adrenaline flow but you get a bit bulky in an area of your body than you want.  Bulky is good as I know and love building muscles, however certain exercises will bulk and shape my already thick thighs (they have decreased) and I must say shapely.  I love working out on the elliptical machine when that urge to run is throbbing and this Texas weather is saying no.  The treadmill is great but the adrenaline flow and caloric burn is with greater satisfaction on the elliptical.
I have to make certain that I don’t use my elliptical machine or any greater than once a week because my thighs will bulk greater than desire.  Of course chest press, rotating press has decreased my breast but I can deal with that. Just the bulking of my thunders I am not fond of.
I am aware of the desired slim, tone and bulk (back and arms) for me I am aiming for. I hear many females complain about bulking of arms and back, some of us like to bulk …..however you can decrease your weights increase your reps to get the body you are aiming for.
I recommend understanding and knowing your body this will keep your workouts FUN and excitement as well as keep you Focused and make those goals closer each day.
To a healthier you and a great workout week.
