"I do not want to get bulky like a man!" That is the number one excuse I hear from my female athletes, hesitant to lift weights and strength train. But what so many do not realize is that weight training burns more fat and builds more lean muscle than just running on the treadmill alone. Both cardio and weight training are okay alone but when put together it is like a combination one-two punch. If you are afraid you will look like Arnold if you start lifting weights there is no need to worry, it takes many years, a lot of heavy weight and an extremely strict meal plan to look like those athletes, so there is zero chance a woman will buff up by lifting a few times a week for an hour. Especially since I work with women using a cardio approach, light weights, multiple reps, keeping the heart rate up. After lifting for a month, you can look forward to maximum fat burn, improved body composition, chiseled shoulders, legs, arms and killer abs.
