Are you a teacher? Or perhaps happen to know one?
The reason I’m asking is that today is national teacher walkout day at a nationwide level. However, as much love I have for all teachers- especially coming from a line of teachers and professor myself- it is not what I am sharing with you today. Today is about the G.A.B.A. You probably never heard about it. But if you struggle to get your inner thigh tones and looking strong- keep reading.
As always, in an effort to make all the proven science applications simple and applicable to you, the video below shed a light on why you need to start or keep lifting weights as a woman- especially if you are over the age of 35. When have you done a diet that effectively got your inner thigh or even your legs looking toned and stronger? Your answer is likely, never. The reason has been that no diet or cleanses will.
However, if getting your legs summer ready is one of your upcoming goals then you know we got to talk about stress, strength workout, and mindset conditioning.
And 9 outta 10 times when we say stress, we mean cortisol hormone. And in your particular case, it’s counterpart, growth hormone.
Now, hundreds of case studies continue to validate that women over the age of 35 begin to “dump” estrogen leading to the pre >>post menopausal symptoms.
These studies also showed that having a workout program where the growth hormone level was altered does boost your lean muscle-leading to a toned and stronger looking body.
That’s where GABA comes in. It is a simple neurotransmitter primarily associated with the nervous system. The key factor to remember about it is that it highly relates to your stress level and how well your brain/mind keeps the anxiety levels down and consistent good night sleep.
So if you struggle with jitters, anxiety level or simply living less overwhelm, your GABA release rate is through the roof. That leads to more estrogen dump and less lean muscle retention “via the growth hormone”.
If that sounds like you, here are a few suggestions.
* Take the Fitlab Method Self-Assessment.
* Then look at your most recent blood work- specifically your TSH levels, and creatinine.
* And of course, consult with your primary OB-Gyn if you are eligible for strength conditioning level given your current results.
