Weight training for women 💪🏼 ~
In the fitness industry, you hear a lot of woman say “I don’t want to lift weights, I’ll get too bulky”.
This isn’t the case, testosterone plays are big role why women won’t get “too bulky”
Testosterone Levels: Testosterone levels in men are much higher, testosterone allows the body to more rapidly build & repair muscle fibers after a work out. ~
While men recover a lot quicker, this means the next workout will come a lot sooner with more reps and a heavier weight. ~
Genetics: some women can be naturally predisposed to develop larger muscles, but even so, their bodies don’t produce the amount of testosterone needed to build men-sized bulk. ~
However, with an intense training regime and the correct nutrition, women can increase muscle size. ~
There are also many benefits for women lifting weights, such as: - lose of body fat
- gain strength - decrease the risk of osteoporosis - reduce risk of injuries
- burn more calories - improves posture ~
So for all ladies, don’t be scared of lifting weight 💪🏼🏋🏼♀️ #fitness#womenwholift#strength#conditioning#strengthandconditioning#liftbig#testosterone#genetics#power#athlete#focus#traininsane#weights#gym#nextlevel
Even though I always work on compound movements like chin ups, dips, rope climbing etc..I like to include isolation work, especially for my elbow flexors. Some say it is not useful, because the compound exercises already take care of everything. To me it is a too simple approach, because by the same talking you shouldn't do pullover or flies, which are two great isolation exercises, and I use them mainly to work on upper body flexibility. Elbow flexors are often the limiting factor in pulling exercises. So don't be set in one dogma, use the tools you need to reach the goal.
