I often get resistance from female clients after prescribing less reps and more weight. ”Won’t that make me get bulky?”

Too much resistance training is NOT going to “bulk” us women up, it’s just not going to happen. We’re missing the amount of testosterone that allows for that. We have a little of it in our bodies, but not the amounts necessary to create huge muscles.

Sure we’ve all seen the freaky man-women with bulging muscles, but she’s not in the gym two-three days a week for 45 minutes getting that body. She probably training for lots of hours a day, eating bucket loads of protein at each meal & probably ingesting something to grow muscles.

When you work a certain muscle, oxygen and blood flow to that area and can create a tightening feeling creating the sensation that you’re muscles are getting bigger but don’t fret, resistance training won’t turn you into Arnold Schwarzenegger. The sensation doesn’t last long and it’s only making you stronger and building lean muscle.

Here’s to you being Happy, Healthy, Lean and Fit
