There seem to be at least two Alexandras in Santa Barbara, and one of them wants to add some weight-training so she can drop that elusive last five pounds. And the other Alexandra? Meh! Not so much. She thinks a good exfoliant and scrub will slough it off. Women. Weights. Wow!
Women and Weights? Do they go together? Is it a myth or fact that women can get huge muscles from weight-training? Does just being in the same room with bars and plates turn women into bodybuilders? And is a tiny swimsuit the best outfit for weight-training?

How fabulous are you if you have a fantastically large number of shoes, yet an embarrassingly small amount of upper-body strength? If your upper-body workout consists of swiping your credit card through the machine and raising martini glasses, it’s time for a heart-to-heart about triceps, biceps, shoulders, chest, back and abs. Grab a drill and let’s start an upper-body overhaul!
Ready to wave bye-bye to flapping triceps? Or to 1920s flappers? And we’re not just flappin’ our jaws here people. You can get rid of that underarm overachievement that keeps going when you want to stop… but only if you follow Fun and Fit’s advice. Velcro is not enough.

Can you have strong legs and still fit into skinny jeans? Carolien wants to do some exercises that help her tone up and slim down. While studying American culture of the 1980s, she must focus on three things: body fat, strength training and her fashion sense. Dig out your leg-warmers–here come “legersizes.”
Doreen eats right and exercises. So is it age that is causing her to slowly gain weight around the middle? Is she suffering from “Betrayal of the Body?” Would a dip (or full-body plunge) in the Fountain of Youth help her? Will performing 200 sit-ups a day solve her dilemma or would a spritz of “Abs Be Gone” be more effective?
Tamie is grateful for her 30-Day Shred, but isn’t sure if her muscles are quite ready to go on tour. Her heart rate says “Truckin I’m a goin’ home,” while her muscles feel like they’re going to “Hell in a bucket.” Which one is best – muscle maintenance or cardio challenge?
WIld and crazy superwomen can do it all – cardio, weight training, getting fit, losing weight, shopping at glycogen stores. But in what order should we overachieve with our exercise activity? Weights then cardio? Wait on weights? Who’s on first? Fun and Fit has the definitive answer: “It depends.”
