RE: Toned but not big myth sorted
Rachel it takes a lot of effort and in possibly 99% of the cases drugs to get anywhere near to what you are referring. However, if you consider your body's muscles, they are the only thing that can give it shape. (Imagine just a skeleton with fat, fluid and skin....YUK). BB is the only form of exercise where you can actually change the shape of your body. Forget sopt reducing diets etc BB is the way to go!
I can guarantee that once you start training and notice the changes in your physique that you will start to like it. You do need to use heavy weights, what's the point otherwise...I always compare people using light weights to riding on a bike for CV work and only going downhill! Waste of time and effort.
Start with the basic compound exercises as they will increase your core strength and an overall effective workout.
