Hello Dollies,

I am super excited to share with you one of the websites that has helped me so much to not only loose weight, but tone up. I discovered this website perhaps about a year and a half ago. I was starting to get into weight lifting and was looking for a place to learn how to do the exercises properly. http://www.bodybuilding.com popped up and since then I have been hooked.

I mostly used this website to guide my way through weights. I was pretty confident on my cardio routine and did not use it for that. Now what is super awesome about this website, is that they give you full written out plans that any beginner can start using. In this entry I will show you how to find a plan.

  1. You launch the wesbite: www.bodybuilding.com  It will take you to something similar to this:

  2. You will want to go to your left hand side and click the FIND A PLAN link.

  3. Once you click there it will take you to a page that looks like this:

  4. Then it will be three steps…Click your gender (Female for me), what is your goal (muscle building for me), and Age (20-39 for me).











5. The website will then take you to a list of plans. Then it is up to you to find one that either fits your time or your interest.        My very first plan was the one from Jamie Easton 12 Week Tone and Define Program:




Now as mentioned before the AWESOME thing about this website is that it gives you the program ALL LAID out for you. Day by Day, week after week. Until the end of the program. This is how Day ONE looks for the 12 week program.


The next awesomeness is that this website tells you and teaches you how to do EVERY Single movement. So for example lets say I have no idea what the Freehand Jump Squat is. Then I would click on it and go to the Full Details page. Not only will they give me a video that shows me how to do the exercise:


They also give you pictures of how you should start and end each rep.


They ALSO give you a written description along with a body highlighting the muscles you should be focusing on during the exercise.


Then they provide you with alternatives in case you don’t feel like you can accomplish this exercise and need something different!


An to top it off they provide an option to print out the exercises! =O I mean isn’t that just COOL!

On the next entry I will look more into the detail of the exercise pages. On this entry I really just wanted to introduce you to the awesomeness of this website and encourage you to use it! This website has been my exercise bible. It is what I rely on. The great thing is that if I view the videos on my android I can download them directly to my phone which is SWEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTT!!!!! *giggles* I LOVE that part.

Please do check them out! What I mentioned is one little part of all they have to offer. They also have fat loss focused plans. I hope you guys give them a REAL try and then follow their plans. Once you get more comfy with them you can start creating your own. Which is what I am doing this week. =)

Happy weight loss my dollies.
