Are there any drawbacks of having muscle?

Having muscle offers a myriad of benefits that extend beyond physical appearance and societal standards.

Simply put - it looks great and feels great.

Mentally, strengthening your muscles can boost your confidence and self-esteem. As you challenge yourself to lift heavier weights or perform more challenging exercises, you develop a sense of pride and accomplishment in your abilities. This can translate into greater self-assurance in other areas of your life, empowering you to tackle challenges with a positive mindset.

Emotionally, building muscle can be a source of resilience and stress relief. Engaging in strength training or resistance exercises can help release endorphins, the feel-good hormones that elevate your mood and reduce feelings of anxiety or tension. The sense of empowerment that comes from seeing your physical strength improve can also enhance your emotional well-being and overall resilience.

Physically, having muscle as a woman offers a range of health benefits, independent of body size or appearance. Strengthening your muscles can improve your functional capabilities, making daily tasks easier and reducing the risk of injury. Building muscle also supports healthy bone density, which is crucial for long-term skeletal health and resilience.

Additionally, increased muscle mass boosts your metabolism, helping you support overall metabolic health. Having a strong and resilient body can enhance your overall quality of life, enabling you to engage in activities you enjoy and maintain independence as you age.

By focusing on the mental, emotional, and physical benefits of building muscle, we can cultivate a deeper appreciation for their bodies and capabilities beyond external appearances. Embracing strength training as a means to improve overall well-being and functional strength can empower women to prioritize their health and vitality, independent of societal beauty standards or diet culture influences.

But do you also know what - I don't think I have to convince you about this. A quick Google search will pull up this information - and all the science behind it - pretty quickly.

Usually what's stopping us is that we have a concern about starting:

  • not enough time

  • not feeling confident enough

  • too busy

  • not well enough/injury

  • it's too hard/I don't enjoy it

  • it hasn't worked in the past

Well, we can work with that too. In fact, that can be where we start together - let's talk about these things.
