Why Women should Lift Weights


Benefits of Strength Training

There is misunderstanding about weight lifting among most women. The first misunderstanding is that heavy weight training will make them bulky. Well known fact is that a female doesn’t produce so much testosterone so there is no reason for her to be afraid of.

Men can build muscles much easier than women because their testosterone’s level is higher.

The second reason is about weight loss. Lifting weights boosts metabolism and the most important is that prolongs fat burning processes. One hour after strength training your body burns 25 percent more calories trying to recover the muscles. You melt 250 additional calories.

The great news is that for every 3 pounds of muscle you build you will fry 120 more calories per day. And just by sustaining muscles you’ll lose extra weight without changing your eating habits.
