"Lifting makes women bulky."
It makes them awesomely attractive.💪😍😥
Girls be like: "I just want to tone.." If I had a dollar for every time I heard this...🤔 That one's probably my favorite.😂
You will NOT look bulky or like a man if you pick up weights. It's actually incredibly difficult for women to build appreciable amounts of muscle, the main reason being that you have approximately 1/20 the amount of testosterone of the average male. The weights will add firmness and roundness to your physique. And that's haaaawt!🔥😍💪
✔Prioritize strength training (over cardio) with an emphasis on the compound movements. Squats, deadlifts, hip thrusts, push-ups, pull-ups, and all the variations thereof should be the mainstays of your lifting sessions.
✔Utilize progressive overload by using more weight or doing more reps. Don't be afraid to add more plates onto the bar and get stronger. Contrary to popular belief, you don't "bulk up" overnight.
✔Stay properly fueled and consume sufficient protein. There's no need to fear carbs, and protein is important for muscle growth. To lean out, you should be in a mild caloric deficit - no crash dieting - or alternatively, you could stay at the same weight via maintenance calories, get stronger, and pack on muscle over time while slowly shedding body fat. This phenomenon is called body recomposition, and it works especially well in beginner trainees.
✔Ladies, getting serious about lifting weights is where it's at. Ditch the pink dumbbells, chase strength in the gym and be smart about your nutrition to get that "toned" look.💪
