Wether your overweight,underweight, Chinese or Irish, if your train here, your lifting. Any female who says they don't want to ,"get bulky" will politely be asked to train elsewhere.
Saying that, what we have come to realise over the past few years is that Woman actually DO want to weight train but some, not all,feel uncomfortable doing it in a busy mixed commercial gym. No problem.
Area 5 Fitness is a private facility. It's boxed off. One to one with a Tainer in a comfortable studio environment. Now lets look at why girls should lift.
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO BE STRONG?
Metabolism and muscles: First, and perhaps most cogent, is the effect that lifting weights has on fat loss. The more muscle a woman has, the more calories she will burn at rest. So, basically, muscles speed up your metabolism, resulting in more effective fat loss.
Bone health: Many studies have shown that lifting weights regularly can increase bone density. Those of us in our 20s and 30s don't think about this often, but someday you will. And won't you be so proud of yourself that you lifted weights and cared for your bone density before you even knew you needed to?
GIRL, YOU WON'T GET BULKY. HERE'S WHY.
Hormones: Most women simply do not possess the level of testosterone necessary to support a bulky physique. Furthermore, any woman who does have a massively muscular physique is probably supplementing with hormones. While we all have different genetics, and some of us are prone to having more muscle density than others, as a general rule you have to train for bulk to get bulk.
Ask any bodybuilder and they will tell you that gaining muscle isn't easy. You won't turn into a she-hulk just because you perform squats with your body weight, but you will end up with a righteous backside.
The key is to utilize as many compound, combination, and full-body movements as possible, so that we're increasing lean mass and decreasing fat simultaneously, rather than isolating muscle groups to increase their size.
Of course, much of this is dependent upon your diet, and a bulking diet looks far different than a solid nutritional protocol for a woman on a fat-loss program. The bottom line is that the way you eat and train will determine how your body develops. A full-body training program and a diet rich in protein, veggies, and healthy fats is an effective path toward fat loss and strength for most women.
