You know strength training is good for you. It increases your lean muscle mass which in turn helps you burn more muscle mass. It’s also an effective way to make sure your bones stay dense and strong well into old age. And that will keep you from breaking a hip or shoulder many years down the road.
Even though weight lifting sounds intimidating, it really isn’t. I used to think it was just for the girls who wanted to be huge and look like men. I was so wrong and realized that when I started to lift and see the changes my body was going thru.
Don’t let the thought of being bulky, or the pictures of the women who lift professionally to step on stage. Lifting is for everyone, no matter your age or fitness level as it just help your body ramp up your metabolism and burn more calories.
The good news is that you can do some very effective strength training with nothing more than a couple of chairs and cans of green beans. Lifting can be your best way to lose weight, here’s how.
