Do you want to get stronger but are concerned about building too much muscle?

This is a common reason why many people avoid doing strength training, even though there are so many benefits that can be gleaned from lifting weights.

And, when people do go and strength train, they often end up sacrificing the parts of the exercise that will give them the best results out of fear of building too much muscle.

So, if you don’t want to build muscle but want the benefits of strength training, what should you do??

That is exactly what Julie and Charlie are discussing on this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast.

There are three principles you need to understand to effectively get the benefits of strength training without the risk of building too much muscle or injuring yourself, and this week’s episode breaks down what they are and how to implement them.
