Ever wondered why girls should lift? Want to burn more fat, get healthier and look great naked just by changing one thing?
If the answer is YES. Then its time to start lifting!
Why girls should lift:
You Burn More Fat
Resistance training is king when it comes to fat burning. You metabolism is elevated as a result of the EPOC effect. This means that your burning calories for up to 24 hours after your session, depending on the intensity of your session.
You’ll Increase Your Metabolism
Lean mass contributes to around 90% of calorie expenditure. So the more lean mass you have, the more calories you need. Meaning more food for you without gaining body fat.
You Balance Out Hormones – Reducing Fat From Stubborn Areas
Oestrogen is the hormone which contributes to us storing weight around our hips and thighs, this fat is usually the most stubborn fat to shift. Intense exercise using weights, along with adequate protein and enough sleep will help balance out oestrogen, helping with the metabolism of these stubborn areas.
Strengthen Your Bones
As you get older, we are at a higher risk of osteoporosis, brittle bones. By lifting weights we balance out our oestrogen, helping to reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Create Killer Curves
As you start gaining lean mass, you noticed a smaller waist and “toned” legs, arms and stomach. This will give you curves in all the right places. P.S YOU WILL NOT LOOK LIKE A BODY BUILDER – EVER! Building lean mass takes a lot of time and dedication, its hard enough for guys and as women, we don’t have enough testosterone to build big muscles.
