Why Lifting Weights Will Slim You Down, Not Bulk You Up

October 01, 2015 2 min read

Contrary to popular belief, weight lifting doesn't turn you into a behemoth-looking body builder. Many women shy away from wanting to start lifting because they fear this result, but it's simply not the case. Lifting will slim and tone your frame. Here are two unconventional reasons to start lifting: #1 Shed Pounds Easily "Whatever weight you're bearing — if you're doing five pounds, if you're doing 10 pounds — if you're not tired by [rep] number 10, then you need to go a little bit heavier. If you are consistently doing that, you're going to see changes in your strength and in your muscle mass." says Katy Clark, expert trainer and healthy chef. The more muscle mass you put on, the more your metabolic rate is revved up so you can squash calories like a champ. This means supercharged fat burning within your body so you can see a significant drop in pounds in no time! #2 Reshape Your Bod "You're not going to change the shape of your body [with cardio], you're just going to be exactly like you are but you'll be a smaller version." says Tia Falcone, expert trainer to Miss America 2013, who shed over 50 pounds. "All your flaws will be the same, everything will just be smaller." Weight training routines are pivotal for sculpting and toning to get more of the look that you want. Giving weight training a try will help you reach those body goals and become satisfied with your overall figure. So don't be afraid to hit the gym and give lifting a try!
