I help women like you ditch the confusion and build strength, confidence, and a body they love. And I do this by making them lift heavier than they thought possible.

Forget bulking up! Women naturally have less testosterone, but you can still achieve outstanding results. I use weight training that focuses on lean muscle buildingboosting metabolism, and weight loss.

Here’s the secret: Muscle burns more calories, even when you’re resting. This translates to a stronger, more energetic you that achieves your goals faster. And you can get the toned, confident look you crave without restrictive diets when using a body recomposition program.

Here’s how it works: We’ll focus on exercises that target big muscle groups, short rest intervals, and heavy lifting. This training method, called German Body Comp, is intended for body recomposition, which is burning fat, and building muscle. Prioritizing lean muscle building is the most efficient way to lose weight.

Why Women Need Heavy Weights for Lean Muscle

Many women unknowingly hold themselves back from achieving their fitness goals by using weights that are too light. Lifting heavy is a game-changer for building lean muscle and sculpting a toned physique. It’s been said that women lift weights 30% lighter than optimal for muscle growth, tone, and definition.

Having personally trained numerous female clients, I’ve witnessed firsthand the transformative power of proper weight selection. To get the most strength benefits, you must lift heavy loads.

Benefits of Lifting Heavy:

  • Boost Metabolism: Heavy weight training builds muscle, which burns more calories at rest, leading to a faster metabolism.
  • Strength & Confidence: Getting stronger translates to better everyday activities and a newfound confidence in yourself.

How I Train Women to Become Stronger and Lose Weight

Workouts designed for body recomposition can alternate between full-body workouts targeting your upper and lower body. This keeps things exciting and maximizes calorie burn.

What’s the trick? Lactic acid! That burning feeling you get during the workout is actually your body working hard. Don’t worry; it’s temporary and a sign you’re pushing yourself to the right intensity. And the muscle soreness that you will get later, think of it as a badge of honour!

The video below is a body recomposition workout of a client who smashed her fitness goals! Get inspired by this workout and see what you must do to get fast results. Watch the whole routine (and many more!) on my YouTube channel.

This workout will feel like a mix of cardio and strength training. It’s a powerful combo that gets your heart pumping and builds lean muscle.

Training in this circuit manner will cause your growth hormone (a natural hormone) to increase, allowing you to burn more fat post-workout and as you sleep. Growth hormone facilitates the building of proteins, slows carbohydrate breakdown, and triggers fat burning. It’s released depending on how hard you exercise. 

The Best Way to Use Weight Training to Lose Weight

Body recomposition workouts (like the video) are designed to sculpt and tone your entire body thanks to powerful compound movements, such as squats, deadlifts, and lunges. These multi-joint moves are like a one-stop shop for toning! They engage multiple muscle groups at once, maximizing your workout efficiency.

Take squats, for example. Forget boring leg extensions that only work your quads (front of your thighs). Squats are a total body move that works your glutes, thighs, and core all at once, giving you that sculpted, toned look you’re after. 

Another benefit of using compound movements in favour of isolation movements is that you can lift heavier weights to achieve the full benefits of weight training previously mentioned.

In conclusion, ladies, you can unlock the true potential of your fitness journey with weight training as your ultimate ally. Beyond the misconception of bulking up, it’s a powerful tool to sculpt your body, rev up your metabolism, and achieve your weight loss goals with grace and confidence.
