All of my favorite workouts have a weight component. In the past I was intimidated by weights, and didn’t really know how to properly use them. I was introduced to the kettle bell and it was a game changer. I don’t know why but the shape of a kettlebell just looks more friendly. The most common concern I hear about weights is that it might bulk a woman up. This is just not true. If you have a really bad diet and then you are doing heavy weight and low reps, then yes technically you could look bigger. But if you maintain a healthy diet, lift weights that challenge you, and allow you to do enough reps it can actually lean your body out. Below are some essential weighted moves that will target your entire body. You can also shop my outfit… keep scrolling.
