I believe that: Women should do more weight training !!

You Won’t Get Bulky. Remember: your bodyweight depends on the amount of calories you eat & expend. Strength training will make you gain muscle & lose fat. But you’ll stay at the same bodyweight unless you start eating more.

Women have lower testosterone levels than men. Muscle mass & strength depend on your testosterone levels. The only way women can get as muscular as man is by using steroids or pro-hormones.

Benefits for Women.

  • Less Fat. More muscles, decreased body fat at the same bodyweight.
  • Balanced Physique. Many women are skinny in the upperbody & bulky in their legs. Strength training will balance your physique.
  • Increased Bone Density. Lifting weights prevents osteoporosis.
  • Blood Circulation. Helps combat cellulites on thighs & glutes.
  • More strength. Pregnancy, holding baby, householdery,… gets easier.
  • Fun. Women really like sports from my experience, especially when they have fun while getting results.
  • Physical Activity. Whether it is strength training or something else: you need physical activity to stay “sane”.

How Women Should Train.

Same as men. Same exercises. Same sets & reps. Same programs. If your goal is toning up & losing fat, strength is your tool.
