What Women Can Get From Strength Training (Part 1) :

There was once this girl I knew who worked out a lot, doing cardio exercises almost every day of the week for at least one and a half hours each day. She was not obese or even overweight but she did not have firm or toned muscles. Like many other women out there, she was slim but flabby.

It was obvious that she wanted to look better and be healthier. Otherwise, she wouldn't have been spending so much time at the gym. But when I suggested that she go into strength training, she replied that she didn't want to look like a female bodybuilder with all the muscles that she might gain.


This is actually the most common misconception that women have about strength training. They think that working out and lifting weights will automatically make them gain huge muscles and look like a female version of Arnold Schwarzenegger. That is not the case at all.

Unless you dramatically increase your protein and carbs consumption, you will not become bulky through strength training. You will only have more toned muscles and your body will be able to shed the excess fats that you may have. Furthermore, women are naturally not as prone to muscle gain as men because women have much lower levels of testosterone in the body, which is essential for massive muscle gain.
