Many women I talked to are staying away from the idea of weight lifting because they think they will “get bulky”. This is a big concern for a lot of people. Are you one of the women who are thinking this way? ⁣

If you are – I totally understand where you’re coming from. I used to think the same way. I don’t want to look bulky either! But after learning about weight lifting my perspective totally changed.

First of all, you are not going to just blow up and become a “beefcake”. A lot of people are trying to get bulky and it’s not that easy. 🙂 Whatever your goal is with weight lifting, you can set it and go after it. I personally wanted to get my arms toned a bit and get rid of the flabby area on my arms. And I absolutely love what I was able to achieve relatively quickly. Weight lifting can make your body into any shape you want. (Well, almost any 🙂 )

Second of all, weight lifting is boosting your metabolism. What it means is the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn while you sleep. I am sure no one is going to argue that it’s a pretty sweet deal :)⁣

Additionally, weight lifting is strengthening your bones, which is very important for us when we get older, because we want to avoid osteoporosis. And it also aligns your posture – if you are, of course, doing proper exercises. ⁣

Also, you can do cardio exercises with weights as well. And you are getting the double benefit.

⁣And there are so many more benefits to strength training. So, if “I don’t want to get bulky” was your limiting belief, I would suggest trying out some weight training exercises.

And you don’t even have to get a membership to a fitness club. I am doing my exercises at home. And no, I don’t have a gym at home. (Maybe one day 🙂 ) All I have is a small set of dumbbells. ⁣

⁣So I definitely recommend starting some kind of strength training, as there are numerous benefits to that.

Love and Take Care of Yourself! Because You are Absolutely Worth It!

Have a Fabulous Day!!!
