Top 10 Exercises For A Full-Body Workout For Females

Fitness can be intimidating. Even small, mom-and-pop gyms are usually full of weird-looking machines, the equipment you don’t know how to use, and unapproachable sexy people lugging around milk cartons full of pink water.

Most of us new to the world of weights will walk into a gym feeling immediately overwhelmed. There’s so much going on it’s difficult to even know where to begin!

Many women worry that weight training will somehow transform them into Hulk-ettes, so they spend hours doing cardio in order to maintain their “feminine” figure.

The truth is, women just don’t have the hormonal support to gain muscle mass like men. The hormone testosterone is responsible for large increases in muscle mass. Women’s testosterone levels are a fraction of men’s. That means you can bench press without concerning yourself about how much chest hair you might grow.

Thanks for sharing. Can the exercises (in the order you have mentioned) be done daily? In that case, what would be the reps and sets?
