Yes, Women Need to Lift Weights Too

Posted by Garcia Weight Loss on 12/10/2014

Come on ladies, yíall want to look good donít you? You want to be fit, strong, and active for as long as possible, donít you? You want to have the metabolism you had in your younger years, donít you? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, the solution you are looking for is resistance training.


Weight resistance training is a key part of a womanís fitness plan because females lose muscle as they age. Studies have found that from the ages of 30 to 70 the average woman loses more than 20 percent of her muscle. This trend can be fought with weightlifting.


Boost Your Metabolism

Lifting weights will speed up your metabolism. After all, fat uses many fewer calories than does even resting muscle. In fact, a pound of muscle at rest burns 30 calories or so a day. However, when you workout, your muscles burn calories at an elevated rate for many hours.    


Tighten Your Body

Are you tired of your butterfly wings, you know the flabby underarm that we women are often stricken with as we age? Resistance training can replace those wings with stoic pipes of muscle. Moreover, weight training also helps the other jiggly parts of your body tighten up.


You Will Shrink

Believe it or not, lifting weights makes most women smaller. This flies in the face of the conventional worry that many women have of weight lifting making them bulky. Muscle cells are compressed, while fat cells are not, so one pound of muscle is much smaller than is one pound of fat. Even if you gain body weight by lifting, your body will be smaller and easier to fit into that cute summer top.    

Your Health Will Improve

Weight lifting will strengthen your bones, a very important outcome for women, and fight off type two diabetes and protect your heart and circulatory system.
