10. Women will get bulky from lifting weights
Let me be more specific – women are afraid that lifting HEAVY weights will make them bulky. Crappy fitness videos abound with women performing biceps curls and triceps kickbacks with dumbbells that should only be used as paper weights.
Women can not get big and bulky for one very good reason…their bodies don’t produce enough testosterone to build the large bulky muscles you’re likely to see in bodybuilding ads. Testosterone is a key ingredient to putting on muscle mass, and the only way women can get this type of big bulky look is by taking steroids and hormone injections.

When it comes to burning fat over the holidays, many people make 3 big mistakes with their workouts:
Mistake #1) Too much cardio
Cardio is always the first form of exercise that people try when they want to lose belly fat. But the problems are that cardio workouts take TOO LONG and cardio is also ineffective for fat loss. Research shows there is a much better way to burn belly fat.
Mistake #2) Too many machines
Most people think you need a big, fancy gym full of expensive equipment if you want to burn fat. But that’s not true at all. Instead, you can workout in the comfort of your own home – even with just your own bodyweight and still have a powerful fat burning workout in just minutes.
