This is a full body resistance workout – it will tone up your body without making you look too muscular. This type of workout is designed to give you a leaner appearance :)
I know that so many women are told to do heavier weights as a part of their resistance training.
Lifting heavier weights will help you build muscle and prevent the skinny fat look. But if you prefer a leaner look, lifting weights can make you look bulkier than you would like.
I remember that my PT told me that I have to lift weight s if I want to give my body tone and definition. So I did it.
But I also remember how it made my body look. My legs were bigger and my upper back was really broad. I had defined abs but I felt like a was bigger and bulkier. I’m a mesomorph body type which means I can build muscle quite easily and become bulky. And that wasn’t what I wanted.
That’s why I recommend that you use lighter weights (1-2 kgs dumbbells, a resistance band, ankle weights) or just your own body weight.
Lower weight + high number of repetitions will help you build muscle and get toned but without unwanted bulkiness. :)
For this full body resistance workout, you will use just your own weight. And since you don’t need any equipment, you can do it anywhere!
Let me know if you give it a try :)
