The Training Methods of Vince Gironda

Figure Athlete Bodybuilding

Gladys PortuguesMany years ago one of my students, a young lady named Gloria, was perplexed. She wanted to lift weights. She wanted to look good, but she was just terrified that she’d end up looking like a man.
I advised her that as long as you are not taking any kind of anabolic steroids, like most of the women in contests today do, then looking like a man should not concern you.

Most of the women competing in today’s competitions look like men because they have been using testosterone enhancing drugs. It appears to the public that a women’s head has been placed on a man’s body, and sometimes it doesn’t even look like a women’s head.

I tried to explain to her that she could never look like that because women manufacture more estrogen and more progesterone they do testosterone. I told her that she was a pure woman, and a very lovely looking woman at that, and that she would never look like a man.

How To Gain Muscular Bodyweight

Rick Wayne Vince's Gym

The great majority of people who come to be our students are those who have a need for greater body weight.

Our improved system of body culture has allowed us to increase body weights of solid flesh on individuals who have such needs.

Every case can gain. Some do take longer, but in the final analysis, results are assured.

I repeat: Everyone Can Gain!

Abdominal Spot Reducing

Contrary to popular opinion, you cannot produce localized spot reduction by performing a few sets of sit-ups every day. Only nutritional dieting and high activity training with minimum rest periods will cause weight loss. Heart and lung function are very important to emulsify fat.

Because they obtain the best blood supply in the body, the abdominals do not have to be worked with dozens of sets of high reps every day. Simply work the abs using 8-12 reps with 4-5 sets per exercise.
