Women Fitness Myth

Fitness has always been an important aspect of life. There has been a growing trend towards more women getting involved in regular exercise. But the world of female fitness is absolutely cluttered with myths and it’s time to bust them! At Wizard Athleisure [1] we believe to identify, raise and direct our energy where it’s needed the most. We cast our spell inspiring and impacting positive changes. One of those positive changes is in debunking [2] some myths so you can accomplish all of your fitness goals!

Myth #1: Weightlifting makes women bulky

Weightlifting will make women bulky. This is simply not true. Women have lower levels of testosterone than men, which means that they are less likely to develop large, bulky muscles. Instead, weightlifting can help you build lean muscle mass, which can help boost metabolism and improve overall body composition. So, ladies go grab our Wizard Athleisure Vent 2 in 1 shorts with Seamless Fitted Tank top and get some weights lifted.

Myth #2: Women should avoid carbohydrates

Carbohydrates have been vilified in the diet industry, with many of us thinking that we should avoid them to lose weight. But if you want to accomplish all of your fitness goals, you’ve got to have fuel for your workouts. If you’re cutting out carbs, you’re instantly eliminating your body’s favorite source of fuel. To lead a healthy lifestyle, you’ll want to obtain the majority of those carbs from sources rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as fruits, veggies, and whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, and whole-grain bread.

Myth #3: Cardio is the only way to lose weight

Firstly, cardio is a good thing. It is a great way to burn calories and improve cardiovascular health, but it is not the only way to lose weight. Strength training can be just as effective for weight loss, as it can help increase muscle mass and boost metabolism. A combination of both cardio and strength training is likely to yield the best results. Mix and match Wizard Athleisure Vent Mid Waist Legging with our Seamless Support Bra for your long Cardio and training sessions.

Myth #4: Women should only do light weights and high reps

If you’re new to training, you’ve probably been brought up under the age-old theory that men need to lift heavy to get huge and women need to lift light to get “toned”.  Unfortunately, this simply isn’t the case. While this can be a good approach for some women, it is not the only way to train. Women can benefit from heavy lifting and lower reps, just like men. It all depends on your goals and fitness levels.

Myth #5: Women don’t need to eat as much protein as men

Women don’t need to eat as much protein as men, sure. But that’s only because men and women have different caloric needs. If you are looking to lose fat, you should keep protein consumption rather high relative to your overall calorie consumption. Having a high protein consumption while trying to lose fat will help you preserve lean muscle while also helping you feeling full. Taking a whey protein powder post workout and/or eating a protein bar can help you reach your daily protein requirements.

Myth #7: Women shouldn’t workout during menstruation

Can You Exercise on Your Period? It’s a simple answer: Yes, you can exercise on your menstruation [3]. Exercise can be beneficial for reducing cramps and other menstrual symptoms. You should choose low-impact exercises and listen to your body’s needs during this time. But it’s worth knowing that while your brain might be saying “Netflix and chill,” your body might benefit from a little gentle exercise.

Myth #8: Women should do specific exercises to get toned

Toning is strength training with weight loss. But exercise physiologist Whittney Thoman [4] says muscle toning is a marketing ploy and you don’t need special classes. He also adds, “The term ‘toning’ became popular when trainers wanted to market their classes to females, because females have historically had a fear of strength training and getting bulky”. However, it is important to focus on overall fitness and a balanced workout routine. Doing a combination of cardio and strength training, is a key part of staying healthy and pain free as you get older.

In conclusion, there are many myths surrounding women’s fitness that can be harmful and misleading. Women should focus on a balanced workout routine, incorporating strength training and cardio, lifting weights with proper guidance, and consuming healthy carbohydrates. It is important to listen to the body’s needs, choose low-impact exercises during menstruation, and avoid targeting specific areas of the body.
