Pick up a weight! Women, need not be afraid of resistance training – “bulking up” is a myth. Lifting weights will make you look more tone, lead to a decrease in body fat, and boost your metabolism. Plus the lean muscle you develop will burn extra calories 24/7. For best results, use a weight that challenges you, so that you are only able to complete between 8-15 repetitions per set.

Christian Bale is once again transforming his body for a movie role.
This time he’s gaining more muscle to play Batman in the new film, Dark Knight Rises.
Said a source:
“Christian prepares for every role as if it will be his last,” says a source close to the actor. But with Bruce Wayne and Batman he feels this is his last chance to really nail the role. He’s pouring over comic books and he’s started the kind of diet and exercise regime that is more in line with an Olympic athlete than an actor. He’s going to be in the best shape of his life by the time he gets the Bat suit on again.”
The first two movies have been amazing — we can’t wait to see what he brings to the next one!
