WHY WOMEN SHOULD CONSIDER LIFTING WEIGHTS…
The first thing women worry about when we discus lifting weights is the fear of getting HUGE and BULKY…
Unless you have some freaky genetics or you start taking steroids this WILL NOT happen.
You have probably heard the term ‘tone’ or ‘tonning’ used in the gym or when speaking with personal trainers and what this actually means is building the size of the muscles.
As a side note, nobody ever woke up one morning and went “Jesus, i’m soooo HUGE and bulky” – it doesn’t happen over night.
AND just like any thing else, it WILL take time, you don’t pass your driving test and then think you’re automatically qualified to take part in formula 1…
If you have ever considered lifting weights and worry that you will get too big then please get that thought out of your head.
IT WONT HAPPEN…
The benefits of women lifting weights are vast, here are just a few:
1. IMPROVE BONE DENSITY…
Women have a much higher risk of osteoporosis then men and lifting weights will go along way to improve bone density.
2. YOU WILL BECOME STRONGER…
Day to day tasks will become easier. Not only that but you will reduce your chances of injury too. Light to moderate weight lifting can increase your strength by up to 50% in less than 12 months.
3. YOU WILL BUILD MUSLCE (BUT NOT LIKE A MAN)
You WONT get big a bulky, and there is a reason for this; TESTOSTERONE, as a woman you don’t have the same levels of testosterone that a man does and although you will grow and increase strength at the same rate you WONT end up getting HUGE.
4. IMPROVE CONFIDENCE
Weight training has been shown to improve confidence in both men and women and you will find the confidence you gain from weight lifting will transfer over to everything in your life from work to your social life.
5. IMPROVE POSTURE AND REDUCE GENERAL ACHES AND PAINS.
Weight training when performed correctly will help to improve posture and reduce general aches and pains. Be sure to learn how to lift weights correctly before following any plan.
