Why Build Muscle? I Don’t Want to be Bulky.
But first, to put many of the differences between men and women in context, it helps to understand the evolution of gender differences. Throughout evolution, a classical division of labor between men and women has existed. While this may bring to mind a stereotype of women as inactive, just-stay-at-home mothers with no physical prowess, this is completely unjustified. The activities of hunter-gatherer women would in our modern times be seen as heavy manual labor. To quote a review on this topic :. The more endurance type tasks women did for millions of years resulted in significant differences in what the genders are best adapted to. Women burn more fat, less carbohydrate and less protein than men at the same exercise intensity.

Have you ever felt frustrated in your attempts to burn fat, change your shape, and improve your body composition? Whether you are young or old, this is something that a lot of women struggle with. It does not have to be as difficult as it seems though.
Muscle is beautiful. Muscle is powerful. And muscle is darn right magical when you think about it! A muscle contracts or releases in order to pull our bones closer together or farther apart, which creates movement.

So now we have a population of women who are not only afraid to lift, but afraid to admit they are afraid to lift. Womp womp.
