When you think of “women’s fitness” you probably think ankle weights, pink + purple dumbbells and Zumba. The other elements of the fitness world: kettlebells, boxes and squat racks are the daunting uncharted territory of the gym. Just the thought of trading in your step counter for a pull-up bar is enough to make your stomach churn. I mean, we’re looking for the lean body look, not the Mr. Olympia look. So, if you’re not jacked up on testosterone and whey, then there’s no need to unchain yourself from the treadmill, right?
Wrong. You are so, so wrong.
