Lift Your Way to Your Dream Body




How many hours have you spent scrolling Instagram and wishing you had a flawless body like one of those models? While beauty is all about celebrating your individuality and being confident in your skin, exercising surely comes with a lot of benefits and as such, is something you must engage in, no matter what your body goals are. If you have contemplated hitting the gym every now and then, but have been put off by the myths surrounding weightlifting, you are not alone.  Most women have a lot of misconceptions regarding lifting heavy weights at the beginning of their fitness journey. Lifting weights can help you get toned and lose at easily, while improving your bone density. In order to help you reap all these benefits, today we have busted some major myths regarding weights:
Increased bulk: This is probably the biggest myth out there. The blind belief that lifting weights will make you bulky is what keeps most women away from the gym. “Bulk” to the common eye is actually increased muscle mass, which comes from a higher level of testosterone (than is present in female bodies) and a high-calorie diet. So, unless you have drastically increased your calorie intake and training with weights every day, weights will not only not add to the bulk but also help you stay lean.
Lift light for lean muscles: Many women believe that in order to build lean muscle they need to lift lighter weights and increase the repetition of the exercise. But this actually makes the body get used to thus strategy and at this point, it is no longer actually adding to building strength. You want to lift heavier and change the repetition as your strength develops, in order to surprise your muscle groups with new challenges.
Cardio for fat loss: Most women swear by cardio for losing fat. They tend to believe that the sweating from cardio is what causes the fat to melt off. Since weightlifting always doesn’t make you break out into a sweat, it is probably not that effective. This could not be further from the truth. While cardio makes you burn more calories on the spot, you stop burning the moment you stop exercising. After lifting weights, your body is torching calories long after you have stopped working out. Thus, you get a leaner and toned body along with a great metabolism rate.
Now that we have busted all the major myths related to lifting weights, hit the gym and lift away like a boss!
