ToningLocation: Atlanta, GA • 20 May
Hey ladies! Did you know that the biggest MYTH of weight lifting is that you will get bulky? It’s impossible! Many girls tell me that they don’t want to lift heavy weights because they don’t want to get too “muscular”. They just want to be toned. Well, the toned look actually requires building muscle and cutting fat!
Weight lifting is very different from other sports, as I have had some girls complain that they were bulky during their years as athletes. Toning is another story all together.
The bulky look of your high-school years included higher amounts of body fat and less dense muscles. As you lift heavier weighs and the muscles mature, they become more dense and defined. Through diet and cardio, you can reduce your body fat to show off that lean muscle mass you’ve built at the gym! You’ll love your new toned look!
