Posted by Samantha Rentz on May 31st 2012
  • We know that increasing and maintaining adequate muscle mass is one of the best ways to keep body fat at bay and to improve overall fitness, particularly as we age. We also know that weight lifting is the best way to build muscle mass. Still, the number of women who actually participate in any formal or consistent weight training workout is still extremely low. Most women who exercise are spending most of their gym time on cardiovascular exercise. Whatever your reasons for avoiding the weights, if you are a woman, here are ten reasons why you need to take strength training seriously.

Some of the many benefits:

  • You Will Be Physically Stronger-women can develop their strength at the same rate as men.
  • You Will Lose Body Fat-the average woman who strength trains two to three times a week for two months will gain nearly two pounds of muscle and will lose 3.5 pounds of fat.
  • You Will Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease and Diabetes

It Is Never Too Late To Benefit.
