Excuse No. 3 DON’T WANT TO GET TOO BIG
This is probably the lamest excuse you can find and the one that’s least substantiated. People who use this excuse to foul weight training have this idea that a couple of weight lifting sessions can magically pump up their muscles.
No they won’t. And the chances that you’ll get big in the monstrous sort of way are simply very small. Getting ripped and shredded takes years and years of moving serious iron, and sometimes even that’s not enough.
So if you think that you’re some super-gene exception to this rule, you’re only deluding yourself.
Excuse No. 4 DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN
In the gym. That’s where you begin. Of course, before you start lifting weights aimlessly, you’ll need to do some research. But nowadays that is fairly easy and mostly free.
There are tons of information online, and I bet you can find a complete suitable work out protocol, with free tips in no time.
The information is so plentiful that you can even draw up a work out protocol connecting all the bits and pieces. You’ll need to know what you’re doing, though.
Excuse No.5 WEIGHT TRAINING IS FOR IDIOTS
Many people think that weight training is only for idiots and that people that have muscles are dumb. Well, truth is that building up your muscles doesn’t mean you are a brainless idiot. After all, when you improve your physical health, you’re brain also works better.
Weight training provides a large number of health benefits for your body, activating your nervous system, blood flow, and increasing your ability to concentrate for a prolonged period.
It also increases your motivation, and improves your general mood. Many people who have been training for a while experienced diminished concentration after making a couple of days brake.
Weight training improves your focus, making you sharp and agile. After all, is there anyone that would turn down increased strength? Weight training exercises will improve your muscles strength for life.
The increased muscle strength will allow you can pick up your kids off the floor, or move your furniture, or lift the grocery bag even when you are older. Think about that.
Now tell me again that you don’t need to be big.
