Most women who exercise are spending most of their gym time on cardiovascular exercise, and less time using resistance that challenges their bodies.
Stop doing the same old routine without progressive resistance if you want to get lean and toned!
Weight training will help you lose body fat. As your lean muscle increases so does your resting metabolism (the rate you burn calories all day long).
Women who lift weights regularly can gain strength without bulk because unlike men, women have less of the hormones that build muscle. You will however develop muscle tone and definition.
Research has found that weight training can increase spinal bone mineral density (and enhance bone modeling) by 13 percent in six months. This, coupled with an adequate amount of dietary calcium, can be a women’s best defense against osteoporosis.
It’s never too late to benefit!
