5 Strength Training Myths Stopping Women From Lifting

Myth #2: You need a lot of equipment.

For most women, strength training with just a barbell set and power rack is sufficient. Because they “only” had that minimum equipment they couldn’t mess around with worthless exercises. They would squat, deadlift, lunge, perform presses and pulls, push-ups, pull-ups, inverted rows, and other bodyweight exercises.

But the results were evident – they lost body fat, sculpted more sexy muscle where they wanted it, and got stronger. Even better, they only worked out an average of three days per week.

A recent test was conducted by a California based personal trainer, Mary Tanner who tackled a bodyweight workout program where she used nothing but her bodyweight for several months. The results were great and she didn’t even use a single barbell or dumbbell.

So, it doesn’t matter if you have access to a gym with all of the latest gadgets, gizmos, and state of the art equipment or you want to work out in the comfort of your home with nothing but your bodyweight, you can get results.
