On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, we’re answering the often asked question, should women workout the same as men, or should women lift differently?
This is a hot topic that is widely debated within the fitness industry.
So before you read any further, we want to hear from you.
Should women and men workout differently?
Quickly scroll to the bottom of the blog post and leave your answer in the comment section below.
Brad and I have discussed this question, and we both completely agree that gender should not be the only determinant of how you’re going to train, or what training program to use.
Rather than training based on your gender, we believe both men and women need to train specifically for their goals.
It all comes down to your goals baby.
You need to first decide if you’re looking to:
Then you need to take the Live Lean Body Quiz to find the best training program that is right for you and your goals.
Luckily we now offer an entire library of different training programs for different goals.
For example, one of our most successful programs to date is Live Lean Afterburn 2.0.
This is an excellent example of a training program that has delivered amazing results from both males and females.
Go here to see the success stories and witness how one training program can do wonders for both genders.
You probably asking how come women don’t get bulky, or gain the same amount of muscle that guys do, by using our lifting programs?
Well, getting bulky is actually hard for anyone to do, regardless if you are a guy or a girl.
Getting bulky doesn’t happen on accident, because muscles don’t just grow by themselves.
Females are even less likely to put on muscle from exercise alone.
The reason for this is simple.
Women do not naturally produce the sufficient amount of testosterone to build large muscle gains.
Now I know you’ve probably seen girls that look bulky at the gym.
When it comes to females getting bulky, it’s usually the result of either:
So don’t worry, you will not accidentally get bulky.
Then you see fitness girls like me for example.
I’m a women who has been working out for years.
I also continuously push myself to lift heavier and harder with each year of training.
Based on this, my results always comes out leaner and more toned, rather than ever looking bulky.
This is the natural result most females experience when they follow a training program.
Even though this question was really about how women should train, I have to mention calorie intake as well.
It’s very easy to mistake fat gain for bulk, but it’s not the same thing.
It’s important to understand that lean muscle is more dense and takes us less space, when compared too fat.
So make sure you are eating correctly for your goals.
With the right amount of calories and the right training program for you, you are going to get exactly what you want, regardless if you are a guy or girl.

Hey, Brad. Thank you for the great blog and the interesting article. Share more like it.
Man, I’m so glad that most people voted to keep these videos together on
one channel! That would have sucked to separate you two!!
I Like having it all on one channel that way I can see what both of you are
I vote A
I vote A too. Keep it together! Which is the best program to buy…I am
just starting out…want to lose lots of weight and start weight training.
They do in CrossFit!
Hi, I think they should be kept on the same channel, be a real team. There
are more positives than negatives for keeping on the same chan, I think one
of the worries people will have is the ‘manly’ content being sacrificed for
the girly stuff, this does not need to happen at all, I believe simply more
videos will appear on the chan, so rather than 2 new vids from brad on this
chan, and 2 new on the other chan, simply 4 videos will appear on this chan
(titled appropriately) – just an example.
A real team both contribute and quite often information is useful for both
genders so it’s always useful for a guy checking out this chan who may see
an interesting video (title) he may have missed, targeted at women, who he
could then inform a lady he knows that may be interested, or even
interested to learn himself! (maybe he’s a personal trainer!?) I dunno
there are like 10+ positives and 1-2 negatives – same chan!
A for sure. It’s easier to have all in one place but maybe think about 2
days brad 2 days Jessica.
I vote A!
I think B
I vote A.A.A!!
Have either of you trained someone who had a diasteses recti?
A! Or B, it doesn’t matter, but I wanna watch both!
I Vote A
i vote A
Both in same show, thanks.
yep.. right 🙂 Train like a BEAST ^_^
Hi brad, I’m 13 and am trying to lose weight. I have a few questions. Do
weights stunt teens growth? Is the paleo diet safe for kids?
I would vote for A. Although a second channel would of course get some good promotion, keeping all the content on the same channel but posting videos on different days would make it much easier to find everything in the same place.
Congrats with the success!
I like the idea of keeping both shows on the same channel, but on different days. Congrats on the expansion!
Same channel <3
Vote A without a doubt!
Nice job by the way Jessica.
Queremos la versión del blog en español!!!!!!!!!! xD
How old r u guys?
Keep it together! It’s nice to have everything in one spot.
A – Make it easy for us keep it all together 🙂
I vote a! keep it all in the same place so my girlfriend and I can do these
Reason 1 – There’s enough shit in my sub box
Reason 2 – I think it would be great way to self promote and keep a steady
flow of videos coming. Plus it will dissipate any “man channel vs women
A – have it all in one channel 🙂
A! Whatever, it’s your work, do as you please! Thanks!
A !! Good to see you here Jess! 🙂
Women should workout just as hard as men…if not harder…balls to the
Please bring Jessica on Thursdays!!
All in one please and this is exciting news. I dig your style Brad, however
Jessica will bring a different flavour to the mix. I will be very
interested to hear from her =)
Yes! Same channel I need both of you….lol
I vote A!!!!! Yes! finally!!!!!
I like this!
A!!! I’m so excited for this!!
A! I’d prefer a “one stop shop” kinda deal 🙂 Really excited for Jessica’s
I vote A. It’s smarter to have everything from your brand on one channel.
But, I’m really excited because I really respect Jessica! I’m so glad that
you brought her on regularly. I would love to know her take on how much to
workout. Also, I do not count calories anymore because it was making me
crazy. Maybe she has ways to keep what I’m eating in check without counting
every single thing I eat.
I vote C = unsubscribe. You used to have actual content on your videos, now
they’re pretty much just commercials….. Done.
I think the reason women don’t train the same as guys is bcoz they think
they’re goin to get big not realising muscle takes time to grow! I think
all women n I’ll add men to this aswell should squat and deadlift no matter
what they’re goals r! All round solid exercises with unbelievable benefits!
I vote B
