Women & Weights
Women: Lift some weights!
There is this huge misconception that if women start weight-training at the gym then they’ll develop loads of muscle and become “bulky” or “big”.
This, I think, comes from the image of males hitting the weights hard and developing muscle. The truth is, guys have a hell of a lot more testosterone and growth hormone, therefore find it easier to build muscle. I can’t tell you enough how much I recommend women to pick some weights up and begin changing their body composition. Most women seem to stick to the treadmill, bike, cross-trainer etc. and of course there are huge benefits to aerobic training, but these benefits can also be accomplished by hitting the weights, whilst also improving the shape of your body through small increases in muscle.
Included in my 12 week plan is a range of weight training sessions…
