Why Women Should Train

You here all the time women saying, “I’m only going to run because lifting weights will make me look like a dude!!!”

Question: Is this true?

Answer:  NO, Women only look like the one above if they are on roids.

Guys generally produce at least 10 times as much testosterone as women so that is why guys gain the size they do when they train.  Women are capable of putting on muscle, it’s just not going to be at even close to the same rate as guys which is good because then you won’t “look like a dude.”

If you have no idea what you are doing start off easy by doing body weight movements/exercises.

Pushups, assisted pullups and dips (until you can do them on your own), inverted rows, squats, one-legged squats are just a few to start out with, and work your core, hamstrings, lower back, and GLUTES . Once you get a fundamental base of strength, bump up to resistance training.

 

Would you rather look like this….

Or this…

    

 

You be the judge.
