Females who lift heavy weights wont get big and bulky. Here’s why…
To answer this, we need to look at the difference between the male and female body.
In males, the primary hormone responsible for muscle growth and strength is testosterone. Males have approximately 10-30 times more testosterone in their bodies compared to a female.
When females use resistance training as the main method of weight loss, we can expect the muscles to become stronger but for the general population it is unlikely that the muscles will grow significantly in size. If a female were to increase the level of testosterone in their bodies and eat more calories than they are burning than there is the prospect of increasing the size of muscle. Female bodybuilders will have a strict diet and strict training regime which enables them to grow their muscles.
What we focus on at MHR Fitness is resistance training coupled with a calorie deficit. This is the sure-fire way to help the muscles become stronger and denser, it burns the layer of fat that covers the muscles and creates the lean, sculpted look that many of our female clients strive for.
So in short...NO, resistance training will not make you look big and bulky!
