Y’all, I teach 10 year olds all day (I know, bless my heart) and I’m used to repetitive/annoying questions, but this one annoys me most. When I talk to people about Crossfit and men AND women say “um, but lifting all that weight, won’t you look like a man?” Seriously? To my face.
3. Because looking like she-hulk doesn’t happen on accident
Those women bodybuilders you see that look like they’re about to hulk smash something? They didn’t do that by accident. They have specific plans, diets, and take specific supplements (legal and illegal) to force their bodies to look like that.
2. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn…doing NOTHING
It’s a proven fact: the more muscles you have, the more calories your body can burn even when you’re not exerting yourself. Your muscles need to eat all the time, including the time when you’re not exercising. I don’t know about you, but I like knowing that I can be lazy as f*ck and still burn calories.
1. Because muscles make you sexy. Duh.
See what I mean?
