In this digital age where information is so readily available you’re likely aware of just how many fitness myths there are out there that are just dying to be busted. One of the most ludicrous fitness myths is that women should not lift weights because it will make them bulky. Say WHA?!! Well, the team at Chuze Fitness has created an infographic that explains not only why this isn’t true but gives light to all the benefits of weight lifting for women.
Did you know?
Many women are concerned about looking too masculine if they lift weights when in reality women only have 5-10% the amount of testosterone that men have in their bodies to even make muscle
or that only 18% of all women actually meet the U.S. Department of Human Services recommended health guidelines?
That’s crazy! I love lifting and it has helped with my overall appearance and strength! Are you inspired to try some weight training? Then consider joining the revolution of women who weight train and look great while doing it. This infographic sheds some light onto the wonderful benefits of weight training for women and addresses the stereotypical concerns that are more fiction than fact. Feel free to share!
