10 Benefits of Weight Training for Women
From weight training expert Wayne Prestcott, PhD.
1. You'll Lose More Fat Than You'll Gain in Muscle. Compared to men.
Compared to men, women have 10 to 30 times less of the hormones that cause bulking up.
6. You Will Fight Heart Disease. Strength training will improve your cholesterol profile and blood pressure, according to research.
2. Your New Muscle Will Help Fight Obesity. As you add muscle from strength training, your resting metabolism will increase, so you'll burn more calories all day long. 7. You Will Be Able to Beat Back Pain and Fight Arthritis. A recent 12-year study showed that strengthen the lower back muscles had an 80 percent success rate in eliminating or alleviating lower back pain.
3. You'll Be a Stronger Woman. Moderate weight training increase a woman's strength by 30 to 50 percent. 8. You'll Be a Better Athlete. Whatever your sport of choice, a strength training may not only improve your proficiency but also decrease your risk of injury.
4. Your Bones Will Benefit. Research has found that weight training can increase spinal bone mineral density by 13 percent in 6 months. 9. It Will Work No Matter How Old You Are. Studies show that strength improvements are possible at any age.
5. You Will Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes. Adult onset diabetes is a growing problem for women and men. 10. You'll Strengthen Your Mental Health. A Harvard study found that 10 weeks of strength training reduced clinical depression symptoms more successfully than standard counseling did.
