The Myth: Weight Lifting Makes You Beefy
Big, bulky guys and thick, veiny gals may be the first images that come to your mind when you think about lifting weights. If that’s not your ideal body aesthetic, we understand that adding strength training to your routine can seem a little bit scary.
The models on the cover of those bodybuilding magazines didn’t get that way by accident. They spend a lot of time training, eating, and supplementing to get those cut physiques.
Trust us, weight to your workout isn’t going to result in a beauty-to-beast transformation unless that’s what you’re hoping to achieve.

A Healthier You
Cardio is essential, but weight lifting may be the form of exercise that really gets you moving. When you start incorporating strength training into your gym exercise routine, you not only burn calories but increase lean muscle mass, which stimulates your metabolism. This means you burn more calories, even when you’re not pumping iron. You can reap the long term benefits of controlled blood sugar levels, lower abdominal fat, and a healthier heart.
