⭐️FAQ’s + TRAINER TIPS:
► What if I don’t have dumbbells at home? Try subbing filled water bottles, soup cans or jugs of laundry detergent.
►Will this workout make me ‘bulky’? NO! Women getting ‘bulky’ from strength training is a fitness myth. Lifting weights will NOT make you bulky — just stronger!
► What are the benefits of STRENGTH TRAINING for women:
➕ Strength training increases metabolism.
➕ Strength training builds lean muscle (without getting bulky).
➕ Strength training effectively burns body fat to help women lose weight.
➕ Strength training reduces the risk of heart disease (the number one killer of women).
➕ Strength training enhances mood and reduces stress.
► Is this pregnancy-friendly 🤰 ? YES. I originally filmed this during my first pregnancy, and we went back and added this full-length video when I was postpartum! If you’re not comfortable on your back, take moves 6 and 7 from a medicine ball.
►How many days a week should you do strength training?
Aim three days a week of strength training. Include full-body workouts, like this strength training routine for women, that focus on compound exercises.
