Does weight training make you bulky? - Function Fitness

As a fitness pro with over 20 years in the business, I have noticed more women wanting to get "strong," as opposed to strictly having a weight-loss goal. I think there's been increased visibility of muscular women in popular culture--people frequently cited Michelle Obama's "guns" as attractive. There's also an increased awareness that being muscular is healthy, and that adding muscle won't cause you to "bulk up" unless you follow very specific (and potentially unhealthy) nutritional and exercise plans.

Supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet. More calcium will not necessarily help if you’re not getting the other nutrients necessary to make use of it. It will also not help very much if you’re consuming other things in your diet that actually hurt bone health. [ 351 more words ]
