As a demographic – women have unfortunately been socially programmed to believe that lifting weights will cause them to grow huge, bulky muscles.
In fact, this hysteria and avoidance of resistance training has actually led to many women finding it very difficult to burn body fat. They are scared of the very styles of training needed to create the body they want!
