Girls & Weights

Thought I’d post this given that there’s a lot of misinformation out there concerning girls lifting weights; most of it coming from assumptions made by people that don’t actually know much about health, fitness and nutrition.

Lifting weights, if done correctly, is good for you. You won’t turn into a huge bodybuilder type, you’ll just be toned and strong. The amount of hours you’d have to spend working out alongside the huge quantities of food necessary to obtain a ‘bodybuilder’ physique equates to being more or less a full time job.

I have the slimmest arms out of most people I know and that’s because I lift weights. I also manage my diet pretty well but for the sake of working out that should be a given for anyone looking to get fit anyway.

As with any other exercise, the way you execute weight lifting is a key factor in what the results will be. Heavy weights with a lower rep count will build muscle and lighter weights with a higher rep count will burn fat. Each will contribute to the other a little of course, but that’s your basic guideline.

ANY exercise will help you lose weight, build muscle and set you on the path to obtaining the body you want. It’s also important to remember that weighing yourself isn’t necessarily the best way to track your progress - muscle is heavier than fat and so measuring your waist, thighs, hips and arms also makes for a clearer indication of how much you’ve lost or gained.
