Lean, Sexy, and Hard - Weight Training for Women

If you want to be lean, sexy, and hard, you should train with weights.

A desirable female physique is one that can only be achieved by moving some serious iron in the weight room! But what about all the talk about weight training making women big and bulky? First, it is physiologically impossible for you as a woman to put on large amounts of muscle mass; you're body's hormonal makeup is not one that will allow you to do so. God never intended for women to look like men (go figure), so he made the chemistry of each gender's respective bodies different. Regardless of how you train, how often you train, how much protein you eat, etc, you're not going to even come close to the big, bulky physique of a female bodybuilder. It will not happen. That look is only obtainable by one means: steroids. Because their natural hormonal profiles would never allow them to get that "big," they resort to changing their body's chemistry through the use of illegal drugs. Secondly, if the right training method is chosen, the hypertrophic (growth) response to resistance training can be even further reduced.

In short, the article talks about Deadlifts, Pull-ups, Dips, Military Press, Sit-ups, Bench Press and Squats.

If you want to build muscle the right way to get a lean, sexy and hard body then there are a few things you must consider- and resistance weight training is critical. The article is focused on dispelling the myth that if women work out they get big. We will talk more about this and weight training in the future, but I thought this article was a good read- just click on the link above to take you to the Lean & Sexy article.
