Women shouldn’t lift weights! MYTH

I hear it all the time. I recently did a consult with a woman who said she didn’t do squats because she was petite and didn’t want to get “all big”

It’s HARD gaining muscle and getting big. It’s not even about what you lift or how often or how heavy but what you eat. Not only do you have to put the constant work in at the gym with the weights, you have to eat. And eat and eat and eat and eat. And it’s all gotta be protein. Then more protein and protein shakes and eggs and steak and chicken and fish and chicken and fish …etc.

Plus women lack the testosterone flowing through their bodies in the levels men do to help facilitate gaining all that muscle.

Basically women who lift regularly just get tight and fit and ripped and thin and strong.

So women grab the iron and start lifting those weights. It’ll boost your metabolism for longer periods than boring old cardio, it’ll strengthen your bones and basically make you bad ass!

Make sure you’re eating clean food. Have a cheat day but if you’re serious and disciplined eat clean veggies and protein. Don’t worry about calories if you’re eating well. Have a cheat day tho live your life! Cut sugar and cut way back on alcohol. They both cause inflammation in the body which leads to all sorts of health concerns! You should be trying to drink a gallon of water a day which is a lot! But just breathing on a daily basis your body uses 2 liters of water.

Stress

Working out! The stress you’re putting on your body is only healthy because of the adaptation it causes. Like stressing your body on a long ride. Your body uses the calories to fuel you and it will adapt by changing muscle tissue and your metabolism because it thinks you’re gonna keep stressing yourself which you are.

Recovery is KEY.

Sleep is when your body recovers and heals and adapts so 7-9 nightly is imperative!! Don’t take that lightly!

Keep it Simple!
