A lot of women believe that lifting weights during their workouts will make them look like hulks, however the truth is that lifting weights will not make you get big, bulky, or look like one of those muscle clad women on a cover of a bodybuilding magazine, not even close! Unlike men your body does not produce enough testosterone to stimulate large, bulky muscle growth.
Now what you will get by lifting weights workouts is a super lean, toned and fit body, and that’s because your muscle is metabolically active which means it burns more calories. In fact one pound of muscle can burn up to 20 calories a day.
Replacing flab with lean tone muscle keeps your metabolism running on high (day & night) and women who have discovered this secret have been lifting weights for years, to keep the fat off and get rid of cellulite without getting manly looking muscles.
