TONE AND BULK: LIES THE FITNESS INDUSTRY TOLD ME

STRENGTHEN ALL YOUR MUSCLES (NOT JUST THE ABS!)

SO, WORK YOUR MUSCLES

GET YOURSELF HUFFING AND PUFFING

So, here it is: Build your muscles by stressing them, but don’t forget to rest. Get your heart rate up at least a few times a week, for about 20 minutes at a time.

That’s, umm, it.
