Weight Training Is A Must For Women!

As our bodies change over time, it takes a bit more effort to maintain our muscle mass and our metabolism than it did when we were younger. Fortunately, when we incorporate weight training into our overall exercise arsenal, we jumpstart some incredibly positive changes in our body.

For those of us going through the rollercoaster of menopause, there are even more benefits that are worthy of their own post.

Heavy weight training is crucial for a whole host of reasons:

Strength: Not only do we need to stay strong for everything we do, but weight training also helps balance out our muscle tone in areas we experience weakness to enhance our shape.

Bone Health: Weight training can help prevent osteoporosis and improve bone density in women, reducing our fracture risk and supporting our overall bone health.

Metabolism: Resistance training with weights can boost our metabolism – which means burning more calories even at rest – contributing to fat loss and a more defined and sculpted appearance.

Injury Prevention: Strengthening muscles and bones through weight training can help prevent injuries which becomes increasingly important as we age.

Balance & Coordination: Beyond simply improving aesthetic symmetry, weight training can improve balance, coordination and stability, which are essential for overall physical health and injury prevention.

Hormonal Improvement: Surprisingly, weight training can actually help regulate our hormones, such as reducing levels of cortisol and increasing levels of growth hormone.

Adding weights to our workouts is a super effective way to optimize our overall physical and mental health. If you don’t have weights, you can also use body weight exercises or resistance bands to kick your workouts up a notch!
