Strength training that broadly covers body exercises such as deadlifts, squats, rows, and presses- is recommended by Four Fitness Personal Trainers as one of the best activities that a woman can undertake for their body. Strength training is a great tool that allows a woman to become the best possible version of herself in lots of different and amazing ways.
1. Exercise Enables Peak Performance at all Levels.
Everybody is unique different shapes, heights, an indeed nearly every aspect. This is the main reason why you must never use another woman’s body as your measuring stick to gauge success. Used correctly and consistently, strength training allows you to bring out and highlight your individual unique strengths.
2. Preserves Muscle Mass
It is a biological fact that with age, muscle mass tends to diminish. You can, however, counteract this natural loss of muscle through strength training. As you get older, the percentage of fat in the body increases if nothing is done to replace the lost lean muscle. Strength training is a proven way of not only preserving but enhancing your muscle mass, no matter your age.
3. Burns More Calories
As your lean muscle increases with strength training, your resting metabolism also increases and you end up burning more calories. Higher metabolism translates to more calories getting burned after your training session. In general, for each pound of muscle gained, you will burn between 35 and 50 more calories daily.
4. It Prevents Diseases
Pumping iron can reduce your risk of heart disease. You are less likely to experience heart disease risk factors like elevated blood pressure, elevated glucose levels, high triglycerides, and a large waist circumference.
Women who are postmenopausal stand at a greater osteoporosis risk as their bodies no longer secrete estrogen. This leads to bone mass loss and resistance training is a good method of combating such loss and decreasing osteoporosis risk.
5. Reduces Injury Risk
Strength training helps in building stronger muscles, stronger connective tissues and boosts your joint stability. This joint reinforcement helps in preventing injury. Additionally, stronger bones and muscles make your body more agile and stable, reducing the risk of injury.
6. Reduces Stress
Strength training is excellent at alleviating stress. Research has consistently shown that people who regularly engage in strength training tend to have better stress management skills and experience fewer negative reactions to stressful circumstances. Because strength training greatly reduces stress, it also improves the quality of sleep and helps you fall asleep faster as the body needs the rest after an intense strength training session.
7. It Improves Your Sex Life
When you have better body image, you are likely to be more confident in the presence of your partner, more open to experimenting with new “things” in the bedroom and perhaps even going really wild. Exercise is proven to boost testosterone levels in women, an important libido lifter! Try strength training and see your sex life take on a whole new dimension.
8. Improves Self-Confidence
Every woman wants to feel strong and confident in everything she does: from playing with the kids, to moving heavy furniture, to fitting into jeans, and to dealing with a stressful and demanding career. Resistance or strength training can greatly benefit all these aspects of life. Once you have made strength training to be part of your routine, you will not only feel stronger and more confident but healthier. It doesn’t matter how we describe it but what the majority of women want is to lose excess fat, look and feel better in their clothes, and build some beautiful curves. Strength training forms the best route towards “sculpting” the body every woman wants.
