ant to do a physique transformation?
Want to burn fat and improve muscle definition at the same time?
Physique transformations can be complicated and hard but as people say if you do it from the heart, nothing is difficult. We’ve all seen those women body transformation stories and impressive ‘before’ and ‘after’ pics on Insta – when someone you follow is proudly sharing an incredible achievement.
But, often, behind the wide smile and fresh gym kit, there’s an inspiring story still to be told about how they embarked on their journey to a healthier self but at the same time, women make big transform mistakes that they should take care of.
Mistake #1: Choosing the wrong training modality for specific goals
When a woman decides she wants to “get in shape,” she often gravitates towards cardio-heavy activities like running, spinning, or kickboxing, and shies away from pure strength training.
Strength training can help you improve your posture and increase your bone density. It will also help you add muscle mass, which is metabolically expensive especially when recovering from exercise, making it easier for you to lose body fat. Not to mention, getting stronger is one of the most effective self-confidence boosters around!
Yes, there has been a huge shift over the last five or six years with more women choosing the weight room than ever, but as long as there are still “fitness experts” spewing BS about women “never lifting more than three pounds” there is a lot of work left to do.
Of course, we would never tell anyone to refrain from doing an activity they enjoy, however, if looking and feeling fit, healthy, and strong is on your list of goals, strength training is a must!
