One of the biggest misconceptions about CrossFit, next to the idea that doing CrossFit will lead to injuries, is the fact that women lifting weight will automatically make them big and bulky. The fact of the matter is that weights to not equal bulk. There is a particular way to lift in which you can grow your muscle mass but that is generally only used in the bodybuilding realm. In CrossFit training the weights, the rep schemes, the rest time, and the general workout times vary to elicit and all over body response to be good at everything. When you’re looking for just straight bulk you are looking to do a hypertrophy workout that is designed to only increase the size of the muscle. This doesn’t mean that size is the only predictor of strength. Also to increase size you must eat mass quantities of food along with your muscle building workout. Our training is designed to definitely increase the density of the muscles but also to generate a heavy capacity of muscle endurance, and increased strength and explosiveness, while keeping flexibility in the muscle fibers and joints. Now ladies, if you do anything athletic you will increase the muscle tone and musculature of your body. But getting a tighter toner body does not mean that you will look like a Bulgarian shot putter from the 1980s. If you look at many of the women Olympic lifters you will see that the vast majority of them do not look like bodybuilders or over masculine men, yet they can lift more than most men their same weight. Lifting weights for women is one of the best things they can do for themselves. With an increase muscle mass you are able to burn more calories when you do any athletic activity. Knowing that you are able to pick something up off the ground by yourself increases personal confidence. And I can promise you that there won’t be very many of your admirers that won’t want to see you looking fit, strong and sexy. If they really don’t like it, would you really want to spend your time with someone like that anyways?? So don’t be afraid of the weights ladies! It’s the best thing out there for you!
