The Benefits of Resistance Training
If you are thinking of starting a weight-training/ resistance regime then well done! Weight training is great for building strength, mobility and developing long-term bone health.
The very act of weight-training will actually change the composition of your body, increasing your muscle mass and will help you become more “lean”. Muscles cells are also more compact than fat cells so you may even drop in dress sizes.
Increasing the amount of muscle mass you have will also increase your resting metabolic rate which will help you burn extra calories each day!
In addition, resistance training makes you stronger- which gives a boost to your daily activities and favourite sports.
In summary, resistance training should be an essential component of every woman's fitness schedule, to ensure long term bone health, mobility and strength. Why not talk to your PT or gym today and discuss how you can develop a great whole-body resistance program!
