MUSCLE MANIA: STRENGTH TRAINING CHANGES EVERYTHING
Now before I go any further, I know most women are afraid to hear the word muscle, because that means getting bulky like men. One must realise, muscles can get stronger without getting bigger. Women have very low testosterone (the hormone responsible for making men bulk up). This is why when women weight train, their result is a natural lean and tone shape. For men who crave to get big: increasing the size of the muscle almost inevitably increases strength. So it all comes down to the specific training technique as per your body’s need.
Why be obsessed with muscle?
Muscles are essential for maintaining how we breathe, how we move, metabolism, and posture. It’s simple, the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism.
