In India, there is a stigma surrounding lifting weights, especially for women. It is often presumed that women should not lift weights because it could make them “bulky” and potentially lose their “femininity.” Thankfully for all women out there, this is not true. For someone to get muscular, their body needs to produce a high amount of testosterone, which would increase protein synthesis in the body resulting in muscle growth. There is just not enough testosterone naturally produced in the female body to allow the muscles to grow to the size where it can be considered “bulky.”
Who doesn’t want to finish a workout knowing that they have not only burnt calories, but also bettered their health? However, zombie walking for forty minutes on the treadmill can hardly be justified as a ‘workout’ and certainly would not burn as many calories as you would like. Bottom line is the more stimulating the workout, the more calories burnt. If only there was a magic formula for you to follow that would ensure that you would burn more calories every single workout, right?
