Lifting heavy?!! ☠️🙅🏻🙅🏻☠️
A common worry among clients, especially my females is if you lift too heavy, you will get bulky.
With my body type I naturally gain #muscle easily. In years past I was often concerned about #lifting too much or too heavy because I didn't want to gain too much "bulk." Even when I was competing this was a concern of mine.
I used to go lighter weight with higher reps and didn't aim to reach "failure" at that time. Plus I was also overdoing it on the #cardio.
This approach was not effective and ended up backfiring. I didn't love the way I was looking/feeling and my #metabolism wasn't strong like I wanted. I was softer and less #toned than I wanted to be.
As of the last year tho, I switched It up and went heavier #weights each set, decreasing my reps each set and aimed for #failure at the end of each set. Mainly 12,10, 8 reps for the three sets.
I have found that my body has responded much better to that type of program vs the lighter weight + more cardio route I was doing before.
