Fitness coach shares why lifting weights is the secret to a perfect toned figure women dream of 

An Australian personal trainer has revealed why women should swap cardio for weight training in order to achieve a toned physique.

Dione Boryczewski, from Perth in Western Australia, shared a series of videos on TikTok explaining how lifting weights is the ‘superior’ training method when wanting to build toned, lean muscle.

‘It is a myth that weight lifting is going to make you look manly – it takes years upon years upon years to build that much muscle,’ Dione said in one video, adding: ‘Testosterone is the main muscle-building hormone and [women] have less [of it] than men do’.

Unlike cardio, Dione said weight training will create shape, burn calories from 48 to 72 hours after a workout and make you feel strong.

Dione has been lifting weights for five years and incorporates little cardio into her weekly workout routine.

By switching from walking on the treadmill to weight training helped Dione burn calories faster and create shape without looking ‘bulky’.

‘Cardio is simply going to make you look like a smaller version of what you already are, [so] to build toned lean muscle, you need to be lifting your weights,’ she said.

‘I’m not saying cardio’s bad, but I am saying that weight lifting is definitely superior.’

Dione said shifting your routine from cardio to weights is only the start of multiple changes that should be implemented into a regular exercise routine to build a ‘dream’ physique. 

In order to gain lean muscle, she said it’s not only important to lift weights but to eat protein every day. 

‘Protein is virtually the building blocks to our body, our mass and our muscle,’ she said.

‘[It’s] the only micronutrient we cannot live without, [and] eating protein will not make you “bulky”‘.

She said protein will also make you feel fuller for longer and help you recover faster after a workout. 

Dione said in order to build lean muscle, it¿s not only important to lift weights but to also eat both protein and carbohydrates

Dione also said the key to losing fat is to be in a calorie deficit, as cardio and exercise only burns calories.

‘Implementing cardio into your routine will help burn through more calories, but it’s not cardio itself that burns fat,’ she said in another TikTok video.

According to Healthline, a calorie deficit occurs when an individual burns more calories than they are consuming in order to lose weight or fat. 

The trick to building muscle while burning fat is to lift heavier weights and obtain a well-rounded diet by eating protein, carbohydrates and vegetables.
