Have you ever seen Hellga of American Gladiators? She is beautiful as well as freakin scary (6'1 205 pounds). I wonder how much she spends on food? Not only is being huge expensive it's also not practical in the real world.
American Gladiators is such a fun show but take Hellga or any of those other "gladiators" and drop em off at the Rim to Rim trailhead with limited amounts of water on a 100 degree day and I guarantee they wouldn't make it past mile marker 5. Drop them off in the middle of the Copper Canyon and I guarantee none of them would make it out alive. I might not make it out alive either but would probably have a better chance.
American Gladiator is all about who can lift more weight who can kick more butt or who can eat more protein. Sure in the studio those chics can crush average people like me no problem but outdoors they probably can't outrun, outclimb or outsmart their environment without help from a film crew, tons of supplements, and a mule carrying tons of water for them.
But why am I talking about this nonsense? What got me thinking about all this is how so many women avoid some of the toughest exercises because they think they're going to end up looking like Hellga or Chyna or any of those other hardcore bodybuilder chics that have pretty faces and bulky bodies.
The fact is it's incredibly hard to look like that. It takes years of super heavy lifting (90 lb dumbbell presses and pulling cars), tons and tons of food, supplements and for many steroids.
Remember that the toughest exercises are often the best for fatloss and a lean toned body because they burn so many calories and they boost your body's fat burning hormones. They're also great for total body strength, core stability, flat abs, and a killer butt which is why I try to incorporate them when I can.
