Why should women weight train?
Whilst all forms of exercise are beneficial, it is now known that resistance training comes with the most physical benefits for women at all stages of life, whether you’re simply looking to get in shape and stay fit and healthy, are pregnant or post-natal, or are moving into the menopausal years.
Proper resistance training is proven to make the body stronger, not just by building muscle but also by building bone mineral density and by strengthening ligaments and tendons. This results in stronger bones and more stable joints and therefore a lower risk of injury and general aches and pains as we age.
A further benefit to an increase in muscle mass is a faster metabolism, since muscle requires energy to function. If resistance training is combined with the correct balance of nutrition, this will lead to overall fat loss and improved body composition, creating the ‘toned’ appearance that is a goal for so many women.
