Misconceptions and Benefits of Strength Training (Part 2) :

Some people, especially women, have the fear that lifting weights will cause them to bulk up like a bodybuilder. Unless you're a power lifter and perform extremely heavy workouts, this is far from the truth. Strength training shapes the body, unlike aerobic exercise which may reduce the size of the body, but will not change its shape.

Many people believe that they have to spend hours in the gym to get the results they want, but it should only take about 5 hours of aerobic and anaerobic exercise per week! When lifting weights it is important that you push yourself to your full potential. If you don't, then you're wasting your time. People will realize gains from weight lifting when they shock their muscles with high intensity, which causes the muscle fiber to break down and grow back bigger and stronger.




However, high intensity doesn't mean blindly walking into the gym and lifting the heaviest weight, but instead, working out with slow controlled movements. To reach that high intensity level, I try to channel the feelings of stress and anger that everyone experiences in day-to-day life. If you can channel that energy into your workouts, you will become amazed at what you can accomplish. Channeling your negative energy into your workout will also help to manage stress.

Finally, it is also crucial that muscles are allowed to rest, because this is the period in which they grow. For that reason, I recommend that clients lift weights 2-3 times per week, and take rest days in between. Many people are unaware of their full capabilities. Weights may be an unfamiliar territory or even scary for some, but once they learn and see the benefits of strength training, they may become hooked! Pushing yourself to the limits and discovering your full potential can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Seeing your body make a positive transformation will only inspire you to continue.
