If you have been wondering if weights training is something you should consider as part of you weekly workout regime, then let me help sway you by saying; Yes! Lifting weights will have a remarkably positive effect on your physical and mental wellbeing, as well as help you achieve your fitness goals faster!
Here are 5 compelling reasons why you should consider reaching for the dumbbell!
Burn Fat - Everyone thinks of cardio as the ‘go to’ fat burning exercise and not without good reason, you will burn a ton of calories going for a soft sand run. However when you lift weights you are actually building your muscles stronger, the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn just performing simple everyday tasks. So the calorie burning doesn’t stop after you have finished your workout, it continues on for the rest of the day and more.
Overall Toning - There is a lot of misconception about lifting weights and becoming bulky. It just isn’t so. If you want to bulk up then you would have to work hard at lifting heavier and heavier weights. But you don’t need to be lifting 100k to get fantastic toning results! Lifting weights can work to tone your whole body, including your legs, glutes, core and arms, giving you that sleek, sexy female shape.
Improved Strength - I love feeling strong. Being able to lift things without having to get a guy to help me! Lifting weights and general resistance training is a great way to improve your overall strength so that you can feel strong, capable and independent.
Feminine Curves - Contrary to the popular belief that lifting weights will make you look more masculine, weight training will actually help you build those sexy female muscles and help give you a feminine hourglass figure.
Improved Energy And Better Sleep - Strength training will both increase your energy levels and alertness as well as greatly improving your quality of sleep. Not to mention it will improve your overall health, so that you feel better than ever!
So mix up your workout regime and incorporate some resistance training into your week and reap the rewards!
