What is the effect of lifting weights on body composition? Here are just some effects:
Or maybe you do like lifting weights, but not just to obtain a certain body shape. Well guess what, there are many other reasons why women should lift weights.
What about that saying “lifting weights will make a girl bulky”?
Ladies you have nothing to fear. This is completely untrue and I am living proof. I have been lifting heavy weights for many years now and I am far from bulky. Why is this statement false?
So hopefully this has helped shed some light on your decision to hit up the cardio vs free weights at the gym. Remember, if you’re new to weights, its still a good idea to have a more experienced friend or trainer show you proper form or watch some videos from credible sources. And of course, always have the go-ahead from your doctor before making any major switches to your workout regime.
So go ahead, jump off that boring treadmill and hit the weight room. You will not regret it!
