RE: Leigh Peele - Defining "Bulky"

Thanks for the post (shorewife) about Leigh Peele. I know I've heard Breezy mention her before, and I finally looked up her website over lunch.

Interesting stuff on her blog...

Bulky Muscles Post - http://www.leighpeele.com/bulky-muscles-and-training-females-the-definition

My favorite quote from this one is

"Realize that no training will make you look like someone you want to look like. You have to look like the best version of yourself."

She seems to truly take an honest, common sense approach to what different exercise and nutrition will make you look like. You just need to make decisions based on what your goals are. I've decided I really like blunt and honest info like this. Yes

  • I think this should be a new badge!

    Something like "I want to be the best me" or "be the best version of yourself"

  • Yep that message has been stuck in my head for a while.

    She is very common sense, no sugar coating, down to earth when it comes to approaching body composition goals. I have seriously learned SO much from her. She is an excellent researcher, writer, and general myth-debunker.

    If you guys want to hear more from her she has podcasts - I recommend listening to them all. She is also on the Fit Cast podcast. Again...great free resource!
