I'm a member of this community for a while now, not an active one though. I don't regularly workout, but when I do its usually beginner running and nothing else. It has happened to me more than once that I start a workout session thinking that its for men only and find myself skipping through some exercises or quit the program altogether during the session because I think that that some exercises, essentially where the video of a female trainer is used are only meant for women. And because I've never found any filter option where we can set the workout for a particular gender, I'm confused. Am I supposed to skip through those exercises? Are those meant for women only? What do you do?
Hey there! :) workout doesn't discriminate women and men, both genders can do push ups, pull ups, splits, cartwheels, handstands etc. Fitness has no gender :)
Yeah I understand that some exercises are meant for both genders but there are some exercises created only for a specific gender. So my question is, when would you know that "this" particular exercise is not meant for a man or a woman at any point of time during the workout session?
No there aren't lol every exercise you see can be done both by a male and a female, as I said, fitness has no gender. That means that you can do both the exercise with the female sample and the male ones :)
In the videos it shows sometimes a man sometimes a woman. But either gender can do it
Men and women have the same body parts with the same muscles, hence they can do the same exercises. I get that one might feel like an exercise presented as butt-shaping or whatever might be perceived as for females, but that's just presentation. Men work their glutes too.
In the workouts I've done so far there's been both male and female visual instructors in the same video and I draw the conclusion that this is to show the workout is gender neutral and can be done by anyone.
