Why should women lift?; here’s our top five reasons
Weight training is the key to loosing fat
By weight training you build lean muscle. It’s a pretty simple formula; the more muscle you have the quicker you metabolism will be = more calories you’ll burn
It’s more effective than cardio exercise
As cardio won’t build muscle in the same way as weight training. It will also improve your abilities in other sports; as having a solid strength base really helps improve many other areas of athleticism
You’ll develop muscle tone and definition
The biggest fear of many women is that they’ll end up bulky. Don’t worry because of low levels of testosterone, you’ll develop muscle tone but not bulk
It helps build bone density
Weight training increases bone density and decreases the chance of developing osteoporosis later in life
Improve your strength and boost confidence
Weight training can have such a positive effect it’s incredibly satisfying and motivating to see your strength soar!
