The Workout You Should Be Doing But Probably Haven’t Tried Yet

There’s this myth in the fitness world that weightlifting (aka strength training) will make you bulky if you’re a woman, and the fear of “bulking up” is what keeps a lot of women from picking up a barbell. But that’s all it is—a myth. Unless you’re mainlining protein and training like a CrossFit Games athlete, it just isn’t going to happen.
