For some, weight training can seem a little intimidating. People commonly associate weights with “bulking up,” therefore it’s reserved for the bodybuilder types or those chasing 20-inch biceps. The LIFTONIC method is here to shatter this fallacy. Sure, if you are vying for stage-worthy muscles, simply turn up the weight on your adjustable dumbbells. But if you’re looking to burn fat, build lean muscle, improve your posture and elevate your mood, then listen up! Weight training can do the following wonderful things for you:
- Studies show that weight training is proven to help women lose body fat. On average, if a women strength trains only 2-3 times a week, she will gain 2 pounds of muscle and lose 3.5 pounds of fat in 2 months
- You’ll get stronger, sans bulk. Because of the hormones in women’s bodies, women are not able to bulk up the way men do, but they will gain tone and definition
- A Harvard study proves that women who regularly train have higher mood and confidence levels
- Studies show weight training will reduce a woman’s chance of osteoporosis by 13%. It also reduces the risk of back pain, injury, heart disease and arthritis.
