"I want to lift weights, but I don't want to get bulky"

By Justin “Bunk” DeVane

This phrase reigns supreme in many of the women who come to try a class with us at Artisan. Most women, and some men, have been told that if they lift weights they will gain a ton of muscle and look like those elite CrossFit athletes on TV.

The problem is that to look and perform like those amazing athletes on TV, you would need much more than a one hour training session. These individuals workout 2-3 times a day, consume a massive amount of calories in their diet, and spend a lot of time sleeping to recover from multiple sessions.

We normal individuals don’t normally have that kind of time on our hands.

However, on an awesome note us “regular” folks can see amazing benefits from strength training with a good workout regimen that fits our schedules. Luckily, Artisan CrossFit uses life-changing fitness programs that can give these amazing benefits. Fortunately, Artisan has these programs ready to use in the gym and at home to fit your busy schedule.

The effect of these programs can be downright magical. Pushing, squatting, and swinging objects at different volumes, intensities, and loads shape our body in amazing ways. Using all this variation helps to crank up the calorie-burning and cause the opposite of bulking to occur.

  1. Our waistbands start to become loose.

  2. Shirts start to fit better, or we may even lower a shirt size.

  3. Posture improves, back pain leaves, even joints move better.

Take these awesome programs and add in a balanced nutrition plan and start to see the results even faster.

You want 6 pack abs? A clean diet paired with lifting weights overhead while bracing can often get you there without even a sit up.

Want a rounder bottom? Do squats and lunges holding objects and running in between.
