I saw a link to the story, posted by Tony Gentilcore (so we should be asking, "Does Tony Gentilcor really read Womens' Day?), and replied to the post with a witty (well, an attempt anyway) comment. Of course, the dozens of people who are FB friends with Tony are pretty much in agreement about resistance training. So I wanted to find the source of this nonsense and reply there, adding the strength of the M.D., just in case that might impress any of the readers there. Of course, I don't really believe that the millions of gullible women who read this cheap rag bother to read the comments of their web stories, but I was angry and wanted to vent.

When I logged onto their site I managed, through a combination of a poorly-designed interface, my ineptitude and blind luck to link my logon there with my FB account, so that all my FB friends have seen that I commented there! My comment got replies from a few people, including the redoubtable Eric Troy, one of my cyber friends (whom you will all recognize), a real life friend and a relative. Anyway, here's the link:

The link to Doc on Womens' Day

where are you in the Men's Health forums for that matter.
I'm surprised you can get any rest with all the bad info being spread

I don't go looking for trouble. It doesn't look like it will be much of a fight, with my friends and relatives commenting to agree with me!

I had commented on your facebook post after reading that second page, and I just now went to the end of that article and saw that my comment is there too.

What Makes You Look Older - Anti-Aging Tips - Woman's Day wrote:
No, you shouldn’t stop exercising. But overworking large muscles, such as the triceps, quads and biceps, can cause sagging in the long run, says celebrity fitness instructor Tracy Anderson. “As connective tissues loosen with age, an overworked aging muscle produces an undesirable skin tone,” she explains. Focus on accessory muscles around the larger thigh and belly muscles, which can give you a more balanced look. For each group of muscles, use weights under three pounds each and do more reps, Anderson adds.

Tracy Anderson gets way too much attention.


True

Amazingly, someone who considers biceps and triceps to be large muscles is making a comfortable living dispensing her weight training "advice."

Anyone training with three pound weights will spend most of their golden years in a nursing home.

Good reply to this nonsense on your part, Jungledoc.

Wow that is one breathtakingly stupid, mythology spewing moron. It's a shame people listen to her.
