Jeff: I want my wife to start going to the gym with me and lift weights not just do cardio while I’m in the weight area. She thinks she will get too bulky but I told her that isn’t true. What should I tell her??
Megan: The benefits of weight training for women are tremendous including warding off osteoporosis and osteopenia as well as burning fat. Weight training truly reshapes your body but women don’t have the same testosterone levels to achieve the muscularity that males can (from a natural perspective). Therefore, to be weary she could use lighter weights and higher repetitions to tone, not bulk. As a professional natural bodybuilder, putting on muscle is not an easy feat so she can rest assured getting too bulky won’t happen overnight.
