Weights for women

Lifting weights will make me muscular – I don’t want to look like a man. Errr, ladies, you won’t. Why? Because you don’t have enough testosterone in your body. Yes, there are women bodybuilders who have incredible physiques – but they are training and eating in such a specific manor that most of the female population would never do.

The twice a week body tone/pump/weight session isn’t going to get you to that level! Weights will, however, give you strength, improve posture, increase bone density and make you look leaner/slimmer/fitter. Ignore the grunting men in the corner of your gym – they are just focused on what they are doing – learn the techniques from someone qualified and pick up some weights, use resistance machines or just your own body. Do what suits you and enjoy it!
