Women Can Be Bodybuilders, Too

If you walk into the gym, you might notice the men and the women doing completely different kinds of exercises.  Still in this day and age there is a stigma associated with women who are strong, so women avoid lifting weights.  But lifting weights is the best thing for both sexes.  It is good for your muscles, including your heart, it strengthens your bones, and it relieves stress.  What’s more, it can help you burn calories like an incinerator.  So why aren’t women doing it?

One word: stigma.  One person might say it will make a woman bulky.  Another might say all that muscle will turn to fat once you stop working out.  As it turns out, neither of those things is true.  Learn all about the myths and facts of lifting weights from this infographic.  You might be surprised that what you thought you knew about women’s fitness is completely wrong after all.
