For women it can build definition and strength more quickly than lifting light weights. But doubtful it will turn you into the hulk. Most women don’t physically bulk up through strength training alone, since they have less testosterone. Men have more testosterone and respond much quicker to weight training. Large bulk can be achieved with significantly longer training sessions (*for each person this may differ)and making drastic diet changes.
The toned muscle you are building will also help you stay strong for years to come. When you lift heavier weights, your muscles pull on your tendons, and your tendons pull on your bones, which has been shown to help increase bone mass, a major factor in preventing osteoporosis (bone density loss). So refer a loved one, friend, co-worker,…to Factory Square Crossfit!! Just one more reason their health depends on it.
Stay healthy my friends.
