Dynamic to dynamite and all that goes in between speaks to an energetic explosion.
What a combination.
Most of us know a great combination when we see one and sometimes great singers turn it into a hit record.
England’s electric legendary Pet Shop Boys, one heck of a combination themselves, educated us with their hit song, Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money).
Love the lyrics:
I’ve got the brains you’ve got the looks
Let’s make lots of money
You’ve got the brawn I’ve got the brains
Let’s make lots of money

What a combination.
“Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)” was as a single in 1985 and then again in 1986, gaining greater popularity in both the United Kingdom and United States with its second release, reaching number 11 in the UK Singles Chart and number 10 in the US Billboard Hot 100.
Great combinations have that effect.
Men have always loved curves on women but not curves alone. Modern times that reflect a growth in the interest by women in fitness and muscle building has created a sexy and powerful combination.
Feminine muscle and shapely curves.
Sounds so sexy already. Train like a man and look like a lady.
According to the American Council on Exercise, 25-31 percent is the ideal body fat for a woman.
What we love about life is that valuable art and what is viewed as beautiful on a women is very subjective and depends upon the eye of the beholder.
That is why in our Session Girl industry when we view a female provider who defies the odds and brings her own brand of curves and muscle, she can instantly create a new definition of beauty.
We have found a new Session Girl who travels the world who has done just that.
Martita states that she can provide sessions in Barcelona, London, Paris, California USA, Dubai, and Singapore.
Muscling in at a sensuous 165 pounds, she smiles at her profile at WB270.com, “I am Martita Spanish, an athlete for more than 16 years working out like a bodybuilder. I am a big woman who is very strong with curves. My work is coaching and nutrition of sport (my life is sport).”
We love a big sexy woman and Martita fits the bill. We sense that you would love to wrestle with this gorgeous babe who sports the perfect combination of muscles and curves.

It is always nice to have a second opinion on a valuable subject so we are glad to turn our attention to a visiting writer who shares his thoughts about sexy muscles and curves on a woman.
Weight lifting has long been the preferred method amongst men to build lean muscle mass, help burn additional calories and change their bodies from flabby and smooth, to chiseled and toned, but for whatever reason, women have often avoided the weights and stuck primarily to cardiovascular exercise.
While cardio is effective for burning calories and reducing body fat (which is very important for developing muscle definition), it doesn’t help with building lean muscle mass. In fact, most of the steady state cardio performed is actually very catabolic. In other words, it promotes muscle degradation. This is why many people who perform a lot of steady state cardio find it very difficult to get the muscle definition they want. People often think of this as looking “skinny” but not “fit.”
So, how do you get toned, defined and looking fit? You add resistance training to your exercise regimen! There are a lot of myths out there regarding lifting weights, especially related to women, so the rest of this article is going to talk about some of these misconceptions and what you need to do to change your body.
When it comes to lifting weights, the goal is to build lean-muscle mass to increase muscle definition. While resistance training does burn calories, especially if you utilize supersets, compound sets, and Tri-Sets (more on that later), its primary function is to challenge the muscles in your body enough to make them grow.
The process of muscle growth (aka hypertrophy) is a complicated one, but one of the primary hormonal factors is testosterone. Testosterone is much of the reason why weight lifting affects men so much more than women. Normal testosterone levels in men are 200-1200 ng/dl while 15-70 ng/dl are normal in women. This difference is the reason women simply cannot bulk the same way that men do, no matter how they train. Even in men with the highest levels of testosterone, it still takes years of intense, strict training and precise dieting to achieve the muscle mass you see in many male bodybuilders. Considering that, when it comes to women with average levels of testosterone, there is literally no chance of them ever getting close to that size.
You may have seen female bodybuilders on TV or in magazines with large, bulky muscles. These women are likely taking some form of testosterone or anabolic steroid. Side effects of these drugs can be seen relatively easily and include deepening of the voice, redistribution of fat storage to a male pattern, hair of the face and chest, among others.
Women won’t see the same bulking effects men do from weight lifting, however, that doesn’t mean they won’t see increases in strength and muscle definition. In fact, the BEST way to get that fit, toned look is to lift weights, more specifically, HEAVY weights.
There are numerous research studies that show women who lift heavy weight during compound, multi-joint exercises show impressive improvements in muscle definition and strength, in addition to numerous other health benefits such as improved bone density, and lowers risks for metabolic syndrome. In other words, if you want more curves, put down the 5lb dumbbell, stop working with 20+ reps and start lifting heavy. Here are few excerpts that talk about this:
“A June 2013 study published in the journal Diabetes, both men and women became more insulin sensitive after 12 weeks of strength training, decreasing their risk of getting type 2 diabetes.”
“In one study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, women who lifted more weight for fewer reps burned nearly twice as many calories during the two hours after their workout than when they did more reps with a lighter weight.”
“The University of Alabama study found that the women who lifted weights lost more intra-abdominal fat (deep belly fat) than those who just did cardio. This not only helps you lose your belly pooch and look better in a bikini, but it also lessens your risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and some cancers.”
What qualifies as “heavy” weight? Generally, any exercise you can’t perform more than 12 repetitions of is a good place to start. As you build muscle and get more comfortable with the weight, you can start to mix in heavier weight with 4-8 reps as well.
Developing a fit-looking physique takes a combination of resistance training, calorie burning, and nutrition. When it comes to changing from flabby and smooth to lean and defined, male or female doesn’t make a difference. You should be doing a lot of compound, multi-joint exercises with heavy weight. As always, form is priority number one, especially as you lift heavier and heavier. The sloppier your form gets, the less effective any exercise will be, and the higher your risk for injury will be.
Resistance training takes many forms including machines, dumbbells, barbells and many others. To stimulate change as quickly as possible, you want stimulate as many muscle fibers as possible. This is done by incorporating those multi-joint exercises we talked about earlier. Here a few of some must-do compound exercises that will help develop that lean muscle mass:
The deadlift is a full body exercise that hits a ton of muscles including lats, traps, quads, glutes, hamstrings, abs and more. You can safely lift a lot of weight when performing a deadlift, so it’s a great exercise to recruit muscle fibers and build fat-free muscle mass. Deadlifts are a must for a well-developed body.
Do you want nice, toned legs and tight glutes? Then you need to be doing squats. Squats, more specifically barbell squats, are probably the best exercise for overall leg development. They target the entire upper leg including quads, glutes, and hamstrings. They also effectively strengthen the lower back. If you’re skipping squats then you’re missing out on some serious muscle definition.
The chest press is another great compound exercise that works a lot of the upper body muscles including chest, triceps and deltoids. It also works the core. The chest press is a key exercise for developing good upper body strength.
Pull Ups are one of the most important exercises for developing strength. They also hit the lats, rear delts and biceps to give your upper back and arms some serious definition. If bodyweight pull-ups aren’t possible yet, try an assisted pull-up machine, or use bands under your feet for help.
Like the squat, lunges are another quality compound exercise that will turn your legs and butt from smooth to toned and tight. Lunges can be done with body weight to start and heavier weight as you progress.
