“Don’t lift heavier or you’ll get bulky.”
This is a common misconception for women around weight lifting (and especially, upper-body).
Fearing that it will only cause them to get bigger, and bigger, And Bigger, AND BIGGER.
But we know,
that you know…
The answer to the question:
Should women train their upper body?
Here’s why -
#1: All muscles in the body should be trained for structural balance, posture, strength, joint stability and health.
#2: Just like the lower body, we want to train the upper body in multiple planes - horizontal push and pull, vertical push and pull. So…
Even if you don’t have the specific goal
of growing your upper body.
Don’t skip upper-body day!
Think about it from another perspective -
Would you not brush your teeth
because you brushed them yesterday?
Would you skip spending time with your family because you saw them last weekend?
Those questions don’t make sense, right?
And neither does not training a certain body part just because you don’t have a specific goal to grow it.
This all depends on:
Your plan (if you’ve got one),
And your goals.
But just like you wouldn’t skip other acts of self-care:
Like spending time with your family.
Or brushing your teeth.
So too, you want to treat your body (including your upper-body) with the same care.
The same devotion.
It’s about balance.
Both the training itself,
And your mindset around why you take care of each part of you.
Because how you do one thing, is how you do everything.
