A lot of girls are nervious about lifting because they think they may ‘bulk up’ or become too muscular. They think that they should only do cardio. But, I’m here to tell you none of that is true! Since I’ve begun lifting, I’ve been scultiping my body, leaning out (aka getting smaller) and losing inches…and these changes are visible FASTER than cardio and crunches alone.
Check out this great article on Bodybuilding.com on 8 Reasons Women Should Lift.
1. More effective fat loss
2. More muscle, more calorie expenditure

5. Increased energy

Trust me. Take the time to read into each point and you’ll see why lifting is so important.
