Every women wants a ripped and defined body, but no one quite knows what to do, and what really works. And when they do know, they prefer sticking to the known and boring routine. Weight training is the answer if you are looking to get leaner. As we age, our muscle mass tends to decrease, and fat increases. That is why it is imperative to do weight training to maintain the muscle mass.

  • Improves coordination of muscles
  • Helps to regress obesity and resolve metabolic disorders
  • Increase strength and endurance in one’s body
  • Weight training causes muscles to grow and pull increased amount of glucose from the bloodstream, cause lower blood sugar levels and decreased chances of diabetes.
  • Weight training helps to melt away visceral fat that builds around organs in the body, decreasing cardiovascular diseases.
  • Weight training reduces greatly the chances of joint pains, and keeps the bones healthy for the long haul.

 

AND THE BIGGEST BENEFIT OF ALL

  • The more muscles you build, the more calories you will burn! MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

I need not say anything anymore 🙂 GO get your workout in, and make sure to incorporate weights!
