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!
Keep It Simple
Start lifting weights!
Get off the treadmill at the gym and start lifting those weights.
Aside from the obvious reasons of toning up and getting stronger, resistance training helps in ways you can’t even imagine.
