Benefits of Strength Training for Women

Why Women Should Lift Weights – Infographic

After 25 years of training, I am still often puzzled as to why some women are reluctant to train with weights. Most women seem to spend most of their time doing cardio. I always try to explain to my girlfriends that the benefits of strength training for women often exceed the benefits of doing cardio. This does not mean that cardio is bad, but it can be done along with a sensible strength training program.

I stumbled upon this infographic that does a great job of explaining some of the key benefits that strength training offers women. The infographic is well done and makes it easy to understand why women should lift. Women who lift weights are not going to become big and bulky.

If you are a woman who has never picked up a weight in your life, you should try it for at least one month. That is all it will take for you to begin to see positive emotional and physical changes.

The biggest concern from women about lifting weights is that they will become big and bulky with bulging muscles. What I can assure you is that this will not happen. Men and women are physiologically different. Men get big muscles because of testosterone. Unless you start shooting up testosterone you have nothing to worry about.

So why do you see bulky women with big muscles on magazines and on the Internet?

The media has always taken things to extremes, gaining muscle like that is not the norm and the women who do are usually taking performance-enhancing drugs (steroids). Even lifting heavy weights will not make you big and bulky. In fact, it has been my own personal experience that some of the strongest women tend to be very lean and thin.

The infographic sums up some of the benefits that strength training has to offer women and how it can improve your health.

Female Bodybuilding Side Effects

Female bodybuilding side effects and steroid use

There is no mistaking the physical traits of women, these include, breasts, shapely hips, and a curvy body. And yes, some women are curvier than others. But every woman shines and has certain features that make them unique. Most women who lift weights do it for health and to transform their body. Other women take things to extremes and often go too far, many of them begin taking steroids. In this article, I will discuss female bodybuilding side effects.

There are many benefits to female bodybuilding, that is if you take a “natural approach”. Some of those benefits include the following:

  • Increase strength
  • Increase toned muscle
  • Burn Fat
  • Increase energy
  • Boost your self-confidence
  • Burn more calories
  • Prevent the onset of osteoporosis
  • Improve balance and coordination

There are still many women who believe that lifting weights will make them bulky and masculine looking, but this is not true. Strength training is one of the best ways for women to transform their body and strengthen the skeletal system including bones, joints, and muscles.

There are a lot of women who like lifting weights, it can be a challenging and rewarding experience, but there are some women that want to exceed the female bodies natural capabilities. When this happens women begin to slowly take on masculine traits.  Men and women are physiologically much different, men are stronger and produce the hormone testosterone, this makes it easy for men to gain muscle.

Winstrol for Women

Of the long list of anabolic steroids out there, Winstrol is perhaps the kindest to women. What that means is that while men often use Winstrol during their cutting routine, women can use it for both cutting and bulking. One of the reasons that men rarely use Winstrol for bulking is that they have access to more potent anabolic steroids. For women, those steroids would amplify the virilization process and cause a more rapid onset of virilization. Read more
