My Current Workout – For A Feminine Physique
Visual Impact For Women by my favorite fitness blogger Rusty Moore is the current workout that I’m following.
Previously, I did Turbulence Training which helped me get on track with my fitness. But for a number of reasons, which I explain below, I prefer Visual Impact.
I have to admit that I initially bought the course mainly because I love Rusty (and his incredibly helpful blog) so I was curious to see what he was talking about in the book. Since getting it though, I’m really impressed with all of his advice. In my opinion, it’s the best exercise program for women out there (and I’ve gone through a fair number of these books!)
Visual Impact For Women Review: What’s It All About?
Visual Impact For Women is a women’s workout course. Actually, the course covers more than just working out – Rusty also talks about diet and nutrition. But he doesn’t get into too much detail about diet, it’s mainly about the workout.
Visual Impact covers both cardio and strength training.
Visual Impact By Rusty Moore – Only For Women Who Want A Slim Physique
Most women, including me, want a slim, feminine physique. That is, the kind of physique you see in Hollywood – models and actresses who have an athletic and slim build, without any excess muscle.
Personally, I think muscle on a woman is unattractive. And the men I’ve known all feel the same way – they say it’s a turn off.
If you are a woman who wants a muscular body, you should stop reading right now. The course is actually a bit controversial because of this viewpoint – I guess it’s considered impolite to point out that big muscles on a woman are unattractive. I respect female bodybuilders, but I don’t want to look like them!
Every other fitness course just tells women, “Do strength training! You don’t need to worry about being muscular!”
But then, why do women everywhere stress about things like bulky calf and arm muscles? Why do women tell their trainers that their jeans are getting tight, they don’t want muscles?
The truth is that the wrong kind of weight training can lead to big muscles on a woman – big enough to be unattractive and manly.
Of course, few people will admit this – they’ll keep touting the line that any workout regimen can be used by a woman as well as a man.
But Visual Impact is different – Rusty explains how a woman’s muscles can get big, and how women who don’t want muscles should work out.
Strength training is an absolutely essential part of being fit. I mean, what’s the point of being weak and skinny? There are a lot of health benefits to being strong, and strength training will also help you lose weight. But for women, there’s a right way and a wrong way to things.
One reason I admire this course so much is because the workouts are quick and not long drawn-out sessions. Also, Rusty is very practical and understands that not all women have a gym membership, and not everyone wants to build a massive home gym! The workouts can be done at the gym or at home. If you choose to work out at home, then you can do so with just some free weights.
The workouts are also broken down into an alternative between how many days per week you can exercise.
Does Visual Impact For Women Work?
I can definitely say that this program is working well for me. I still have some more to go before I consider my physique to be as good as all those other fitness bloggers’, but this course has helped me go a long way towards that goal. I’m also feeling like I’m getting a slim, sexy “Hollywood” physique (lol!)
One final reason I love this course is because it’s helped me to finally get rid of my belly. My tummy was the thing I used to be most embarrassed about but now I can wear tight tops again, yay! If you’re a woman, you know that most of the sexy clothes are skin-tight and having a “pregnant”-like belly means you can’t wear many things. I used to be perpetually scared that someone would ask me when I’m due!
I’ve also slimmed down my arms a fair bit. And I definitely haven’t gotten bulkier
Gaining muscle was a big concern for me previously, but I can relax about that now. Rusty really knows what he’s talking about and I’m confident that as I lose more weight, I’ll still stay slim. So far this course has helped me look more shapely.
Negatives Of Visual Impact For Women
I don’t think there’s any course out there like this, that’s particularly for women. Most courses don’t have a focus on women getting slim and remaining slim without getting bulky muscles.
That’s why this course is a bit controversial – for instance, there’s a section specifically dedicated to reducing the bulkiness of your muscles, if you’ve bulked up and want to reduce the size of you muscles (some trainers train women incorrectly and they get bulky muscles). If you’re offended by this kind of discussion, and don’t care if you put on some muscles, then it’s not for you.
