Seriously ladies… learn to love lifting. Your bodyÂ doesnâ€™t produce testosterone soÂ you wonâ€™t bulk. Weights are whatâ€™s going to give you that tight, muscle tone thatÂ you donâ€™t achieve from cardio. You donâ€™t have to go crazy and start takingÂ supplements. A balanced diet with enough protein in each meal will allow you toÂ build muscle. If you donâ€™t have a gym membership,Â you can buy a few different sizedÂ weights and do lifting at home. A rep should feelÂ like work, but you should neverÂ strain. Use a weight that youâ€™re comfortable withÂ and when it starts to feel easy, upÂ the weight by 5-10lbs.
Here is what my at-home, full body, weight liftingÂ session looks like… it also includes some bodyweight exercises.
Warm upÂ (5 minutes) run in place, high knees, jumping jacks and a quick stretch.
Donkey Kicks 5×10 each leg
Bicep Curls 5×10
Skill Crushers 5×10
Squats (with weights in hands, low or high) 5×10
Flies (laying flat on your back) 5×10
Rows (standing up, bent at the waist 45 degress) 5×10
I always finish off with 5×10 abs for good measure.
