For anyone working on reaching that next level of weight loss and muscle toning, you must use weights.

A lot of women avoid using weights out of a fear of getting bulky, however this is a serious misconception and you need to understand the facts before running away from the dumbbells.

Ramona Braganza, fitness guru and personal trainer to the stars, told us, "Usually when you say weights to women they freak out and say, 'Oh I don't want to get big and bulky!'

Well, hello you have to work out so hard to get big and bulky.

Most women have to train very hard to get muscle tone."

And remember, just using your muscles burns fat and speeds up your metabolism - the key to weight loss.

Ramona wants women to understand that, "the main thing is using weights for working out and then definitely protein for strength training to build muscle tissue.

The circuits I use are strength training and I mostly use weights, for shaping a body, that's the quickest and best way.

If you just use body weight, that's OK, but you actually have to tear the fibre and rebuild it and the only way to do this, is to hold some kind of weight."
