6 reasons why women should be bodybuilding

Strength training is about much more than building muscle, it helps build a good physique for both men and women.

There is no doubt that women should work!

It’s not easy to find yourself well. Bodybuilding will show your curves in the mirror.

Lifting weights can transform you inside and out.

Introduction to our sports coach Melanie Ragonot:

I spend a lot of time training women on how to change their bodies, but I don’t just focus on their physique. For the best result I also teach them “how to improve the interior to change their lifestyle.

Strength training has changed my body and my life for the better!

I want it so you can feel the same and change!

Here’s a quick overview of the main reasons why you women should be bodybuilding.

Reason 1: Increase Your Confidence

Reason number one is the increase in self-confidence that bodybuilding gives.

I have much more self-confidence today, about 20 years old.

When I started exercising and went to the gym, I was frozen. If I wasn’t with my boyfriend or friend, I wouldn’t know where to start, what to do as an exercise, etc.

Even if I knew how to use this or that machine, I was more worried about the look of other people who watched me work with the naked eye or found the settings of the machines that are loaded for use, etc.
I was full of doubts, and this lack of self-confidence prevented me from training my muscles in an optimal way.

It will take time and it will take time, but if you keep going Diligently in the gym and bodybuilding, you will gain confidence.

Today I have been bodybuilding for many years, I am a sports trainer and I have the feeling of owning a room, I feel at home when I walk there.
I love that feeling!

The more you visit your room, the more you gain confidence in yourself. In time you will go to the hall, use the necessary equipment and blow up TV shows and rehearsals.
And you know why people keep you arderont? Maybe they need advice or are wondering how you are doing.
There is nothing more enjoyable than exercising with this type of self-confidence.

It is also very pleasant when you wear a dress or jeans to observe the curves of your body.

I feel good, just like me!

Reason 2: eat more carbs

Who doesn’t love to eat?
When you do strength training, you should be eating carbs. If you are exercising at a certain intensity, you must eat. If you don’t eat right, you won’t be able to do effective exercise.

However, many women are afraid to consume carbohydrates and wonder if weight will force them to eat. I have good news for you: NO if you work intensely and diligently in the room. You need these carbs to change your physique.

Therefore, if you consume carbs throughout the day (leg day, lower body, leg), your body will use every gram to grow and maintain muscle.

This is a very good reason to eat carbs to exercise.

Reason 3: creating curves

Weight training with weights or loads can help you build muscle, sharpen your body, and change the way you dress. Doing only cardio will never do all of this, you have to integrate it.

Many women spend hours at the gym on a treadmill, bike, or elliptical trainer and are frustrated not to reach their goals and / or see their body develop.
Make it clear that cardio is important.
I do it myself heartily, but lifting / pushing weights gave me curves that I never knew existed.

My buttocks have strengthened and developed. I have beautiful legs and I am not ashamed to show them.

I like to wear leggings, shorts, and jeans that accentuate my hamstrings and my quadriceps.

I totally assume!

Reason 4: bodybuilding to burn more calories

Of course, the best part of bodybuilding is burning calories even after exercise …

When you only do cardio, you burn fat, but you don’t actually build muscle.

When the cardio session ends, fat burning stops.

When you train with intensity, I like to say “intensity,” you burn fat and calories.
Your metabolism increases and you burn calories throughout the day – even after training and while you are recovering Aison.

I don’t know about you, but I love to know that I burn calories while sleeping!

The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn. , It’s that simple!

And don’t worry, you won’t have big muscles and you will never achieve a masculine physique, as this is fear number one. women who come to me for advice. /

Reason 5: bodybuilding to strengthen your bones

Even if you are not worried about it at the moment, women are more likely to be at risk of men having osteoporosis, which means a higher risk of future fractures.

A good way to minimize this risk is to do intense strength training.
I am not saying that it only takes a few repetitions here and there on machines and a little circular training; I’m talking about intensity!

Go to the gym – do some machines, use pulleys, use dumbbells or sit in a squat cage – choose whichever you prefer.
But Use weight, no matter what exercise you do, do that’s right!

You will build muscle, increase bone density and increase strength, which will greatly help you in your life. every day.

Reason 6: do it yourself

Lifting weights makes you independent.

The bodybuilder lets you do things yourself without asking someone.

Sometimes it’s fun when you’re at the gym and a guy ask if you need help or advice and say “no, I can do it!”
