Have a read below as to why women should consider strength training and not be afraid of it 🙂

 Fortunately women these days are less reluctant to train with weights than a couple of years ago. Yet many of us decide to get fit by just doing cardio, taking part in mostly cardio based classes and avoiding the free weight area in the gym at all cost. Some of the reasons are that most people think that cardio is the way to go if you want to lose weight, other women might feel intimidated by the free weights and don’t know exactly what to do with them.

So why should women train with weights (and not just the pink 1kg dumbbell or 4kg kettlebell)? Here’s just a few reasons:

  • Most women want a “toned” look. Guess what,you can’t get toned by just doing cardio. Being toned means having some muscle definition and that can only be achieved by resistance training. And by the way due to the nature of our hormones us women can’t really bulk up, we simply don’t have enough testosterone floating around.
  • If you are into sports then you will very likely benefit from some kind of strength and conditioning for your chosen activity.
  • Pure cardio training has limited value for fat loss. If you include strength training into your gym routine you will increase your muscle mass, whilst reducing fat (with a calorie reduced diet of course). The more muscle you have in your body the more calories you burn at rest, so more muscle speeds up your metabolism.
  • It’s a pretty good feeling if you can carry all those heavy boxes etc all by yourself, no need to ask for help 🙂
  • Lifting weights, lifts your confidence. The more you achieve things you didn’t think you could do, the more it boosts your self esteem and confidence. It’s very empowering
  • As we get a bit older it becomes more and more important to ensure that we maintain as much muscle mass and bone mass as possible. We’ll stay much healthier and more active in our later years through resistance training
