Ladies, you’ve heard that you should lift weights
But do you know the reasons why ?
Here are the top 7 reasons why women should strength train:
#1) Stronger people are harder to kill and more useful in general
Life is easier when you're stronger
Think about the daily tasks you do in everyday life
No need to call for help or struggle to get that 50lb bag of dog food moved around
Carry a heavy object up a flight of stairs
Having to start and stop over again because the groceries are weighing you down
In general, when you're stronger, everyday life is easier
#2) Less chance of injury
when you build strong muscles, you’re also building stronger bones, ligaments, and tendons..
making you less prone to injury doing things you love like playing tennis, running, even walking
#3) Helps combat age-related muscle loss
Having muscle allows you to remain independent longer
No need to rely on someone to help you in daily tasks down the road
#4) Eat more
People with more muscle burn more calories at rest than those who don't
which means you can eat more and get away with having a “cheat”
#5) Reduce pain
having a strong body makes living easier reduces pain in common pain areas
Because of strong muscle, you can hold a better posture, and reduce back / hip pain
This is a personal preference and you can choose to build more muscle in specific areas
Ever wanted that hourglass shape?
Or having amazing arms and back to show off in that little black dress?
Through strength training and building muscle, you can now change the way your body looks
#7) Live longer
There are so many benefits to working out and adding in strength training to your routine just aids in helping you live a long and healthy life
