Women: Make a Workout Easier
 
My wife was reading a fitness magazine last night and came across an article: "Women: 3 Ways to make Your Workouts Easier."

"Way" number one was: drink an iced coffee drink during your workout.

Intra-workout frappuccino anyone?

Number 3 on this list was not to get too warm. It recommend dipping your toes in the pool during the middle of a workout.

wtf ???

Yeh my gym has a handy ice pool, just incase my toes get warm too lmao...

The women could always just all strip off to keep cool, now thats a gym i could get to grips with ;)

This is the type of information that is being handed to the masses in "fitness" and "men's" magazines.

Articles are tailored to their needs, and aren't about effectiveness.

Imagine putting "lazy fitness" on the cover. Must sell many magazines.

Hahaha, I was thinking the exact same thing! We all have those handy, just in case we want to dip our toes.

So, the whole concept is on staying cool!

What was number 2? "Don't open your coffin lid!"
