Ladies listen up! If you’re not doing so already, it’s time to add strength training to your routine!
Being fit and strong has quickly become the new skinny. Women are no longer aiming to be model thin, instead they are working out to gain strength and muscles. Strength training is known to boost self-esteem and body image. Knowing your body is physically capable fosters a healthier self-image than focusing on being thin. Something about being able to carry your own luggage or open a stubborn jar without help feels liberating. Many people are unaware lifting weights before cardio will actually cause your body to burn more calories during cardio. More muscle tissue burns more calories, even when you are walking or simply being sedentary.
Ladies, decrease time on the elliptical and add weights, it’s good for you!
