LIES!! Welded does not make women bulky. What does that even mean? Bulky?
Let me give you a little example, picture a 105 lb. runway model with 12-15% body fat and a 140 lb. elite Welded athlete with about the same amount of body fat. Their bodies both allow them to do something they enjoy.
Now, if we look at your average runway model who has no muscular development and almost no fat deposits she has just enough muscle on her body to walk her runway, but that’s about it. Then we look at your elite Welded athlete who has spent many years developing her muscle and strength to do some pretty amazing things with her body, and because of this she has 35 more pounds of muscle than our runway model. Between these two women there probably isn’t too much difference in their genetics but the big difference comes in their diet and training routines.
Do you want to know what makes a woman “bulky?” Fat. Fat is what makes women bulky. So how can we battle this bulk? Developing muscle to burn excess fat while also doing cardio would be a start. Then you would want to work on a diet that gives you the fuel you need to feed your muscles without aiding the fat.
Would you like to know what happens when you lift weights? Your muscles grow, your bones become denser, your hormones become better regulated, and your central nervous system becomes more resilient to physical stress because it’s learning how to recruit more muscle fibers to contract on demand. Another benefit of lifting heavy: that booty that Weldedters are famously known for. Do you really need a better reason than that?
So long story short, no, Welded does not make you bulky! Make sure to tell all your girlfriends and scream it from the rooftops because this is some groundbreaking information!
