A lot of women shy away from strength training, thinking they’ll develop enlarged, masculine muscles, but that is not the case! Women’s bodies lack the testosterone needed to build bulky muscles. Instead, muscles will be toned, and more defined. Training with weights can also help improve circulation, balance, and bone strength, thereby reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Other bonuses include lowering your blood pressure and resting heart rate, which is a sign of a healthier heart. Plus strength training increases your metabolism which will help your body burn more calories and develop a leaner body. Try strength training and watch the inches melt away!
