Lifting Weights Won't Make You Bulky or Manly
One of the main concerns of women who are considering trying out strength training is the false assumption that weight lifting causes you to get bulky or overly muscular. We know for a fact that this is not true and we want to show you why.
Top Three Takeaways:
1. Women Lack the Testosterone Necessary to Get Bulky
2. My Personal Story of Building Muscle
3. The Muscle You Build Will Always be Tasteful For Your Frame
Women Lack the Testosterone Necessary to Get Bulky
Testosterone is the main hormone that drives muscle growth, and women have about 10% of the testosterone that men have. It doesn't matter how much you workout, you will always be limited by your hormones.
All these women you've seen online or in magazines that are super muscular and look like a many, they're taking steroids. When professional bodybuilders want to get bigger, they take steroids. If you're not taking steroids, and especially if you're a women, you just can't build that much muscle.
My Personal Story of Building Muscle
I started working out 8 years ago with the goal of getting as muscular and strong as possible. I'm definitely more muscular and much stronger than I was when I started. But I still look normal. In fact, some may even call me skinny.
And remember, I'm a young male with lots of testosterone who has been eating and training with the goal of getting big. If you aren't a male intentionally trying to get bigger, you won't.
The Muscle You Build Will Always be Tasteful For Your Frame
The muscle you build will never look weird, disproportional, bulky, or make you look manly. Your frame will only support so much muscle. Add the fact that on average women have smaller frames than men to the fact they have 10% of the testosterone and you're left with the fact women have a disadvantage when it comes to building muscle. Again this should come as good news if you're worried about getting too bulky.
Oh and get this, muscle takes up less space than fat. So here's what happens when you focus on building as much muscle as possible:
- You get stronger.
-You finally get the muscle definition you're after (AKA- you'll look like you workout).
-You get smaller all over and will lose a dress size every few months.
-You're metabolism increases.
If you're ready to really transform your body, health, and lifestyle, it's time to focus on building as much muscle as possible!
