I see it all the time in the gym, women who are flying through reps thinking that they are lifting. I ask all the time do you think you could lift a little heavier, and I get the same response, I don’t want to bulk up!
Unless you have some sort of hormonal imbalance of testosterone, it’s impossible for you to bulk up! It is possible for you to tone up and show some muscle definition. Who doesn’t want that! Plus, muscle:
- Burns FAT!!
- Strengthens your bones
- Takes up less space that fat, so you look leaner
So, you need to stop flying through your reps and increase your weights. You ask? When do I know it’s time to increase my weights? Well, when you get to the last 2-3 reps and you feel like you can do 10 more, then you need to increase your weight. With that said, you should only increase when you can maintain proper form!!
So tell me, are you flying through your reps? Do you have any more questions, about weight training, I would to hear them? Just post a question below. I plan on answering a question every Sunday.
