I had a great idea for this post before I started to actually write it up. It’s a popular saying that “women should train like men” for the best results in the weight room. However, women’s strength training shouldn’t necessarily mimic the training of men.
Allow me to explain: there’s only one problem with the statement that women should train like men: most men don’t “train like men.”
In commercial gyms everywhere most men do exercises that aren’t the most beneficial for their physique, health, or goals. For example, if men actually train their legs they use the leg press, leg extension, leg curl, and even the inner and outer thigh machines.
