Let me tell you a bit about what inspired me to start this blog.
It's the countless times I've heard that a woman shouldn't lift anything heavy or else face the consequences of being too bulky. It's the rail-thin models I see in women's fitness magazines demonstrating a 2 pound dumbbell curl on a bosu ball with a smile on her face and no hint of sweat. It's that 1 piece of good information sandwiched between just plain lies. It's men's magazines that tell you squatting is bad for your knees and that you need the hottest and latest new supplement to get those six-pack abs.
And this all terribly upsets me.
Hi, my name is Kat and in this blog I'm going to try to delve into the pages of men's and women's health magazines, infomercials and fitness as portrayed by TV and movies to see what bits of truth we can get from it, and what we can toss as, well, bullshit.
Hopefully you'll learn something new, or at least enjoy me getting on my soapbox from time to time.
