2016 Model Mexico Melina Anahi Figueroa shares, “Exercise is a manifestation of what your body can do, not a punishment for what you ate. I love this phrase and it must always be to test your body and to make it stronger and more agile. Enjoy moving it and loving it. I do not say that it is bad if once we go out with the meals for a birthday or special party, the next day we do cardio and take care a little more with the food to compensate for the excess of the previous day. But what is bad is to punish our body every day for what we eat and to put it to the extreme limit all week, whether it is Exercise of more or Stop eating. Always balance is the best option, enjoy being healthy, and give us small tastes. To move the body and see little by little reflected in the mirror the results of that good lifestyle.”

Australian Fitness Model Naomi Luck says, “LADIES LIFT YOUR WEIGHTS
Strength training, builds lean muscle that burns calories at a higher rate even while you are resting.
You might technically burn fewer calories during a 60 minute strength training routine than you do running for an hour, BUT the lean muscle that you build from heavy strength training, is going to get you a higher net energy expenditure, because of the elevated after burn that lasts up to 24-48 hours post training. Meaning your body burns fat faster at rest!!
You are not going to get massive lifting weights! That is a whole other argument. You ARE however going to reshape your body, and find it easier to stay lean because your body burns through calories faster than someone who sticks to just cardio for exercise.
This being said- you still need to push past your comfort zone and LIFT HEAVY WEIGHT! If you are un-sure ASK someone to help you or hire a Trainer like myself, here in this pic, that actually knows how to lift, just ask them what a low bar back squat is… if they don’t know…walk away. If they put you on a 1000 calorie diet…run away!”
