With the risk of becoming lame, I will once again talk about women and weightlifting, and especially about weight training about your legs!

A couple days ago, a beautiful girl, with whom I train, came to me and said that she was worried, because her legs were getting too muscular. She said that they were already too strong from the dancing classes she was attending!

Completely shocked! First of all, I want to say that if you see her you will NEVER think anything bad about her legs! Besides that the heaviest weight that she has lifted so far is a 12kg kettlebell! Let me think that over… 12kg…too muscular! That’s an absurd statement!

I used this example, because I am aware that there are plenty of women, who are afraid of getting bulky or too muscular, without a real reason!

I’ve noticed that when it comes to women, their notion of their own appearance, is not based on the real reflection in the mirror, but more it is based on the illusion of how they probably look, which is fed by the mass media myths about women and weights!

What happens? All the popular media prints, state that women who lift weights, become too muscular… thus a woman, who has just started lifting weights, one day looks herself in the mirror… she completely neglects the real reflection and starts thinking “Oh, my God! I am lifting weights! I think my legs are getting too muscular!”

Truth is that they can not become too muscular! Truth is that your legs are not too strong! Exactly the opposite! They are not strong enough and you lack some necessary curves on them!

Most women have extremely undeveloped legs and tell you the truth some weight lifting wouldn’t be unduly!

Besides that I often hear how aerobics and dancing, has made your legs too strong!

How could you understand if your legs are getting stronger?

If you squat with a weight, which is equal to your bodyweight, then you are strong!

If you deadlift 1,5 times your bodyweight, then you are strong!

If you can do at least 1-2 pistols, then you are strong!

Strong! Not too strong, just strong!

Let me ask you, when was the last time that you squatted a weight that was half your bodyweight?

Never, right? Then you have absolutely nothing to fear about! Keep on lifting weights!

I recommend you read:

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
