3 Benefits of Lifting Weights
There’s a lot of misconceptions around ladies and lifting weights. And unfortunately, it has robbed many from achieving simple and sustainable fat loss that lasts.
Ladies: lifting weights doesn’t make you bulky. Instead, it’s how you get lean, strong, and maintain fat loss. Here’s 3 benefits that you’ll definitely want to know for your personal fat loss journey.
1. Build a Lean Physique
Lifting helps you to build a lean muscle. This is extremely beneficial for two reason: 1) it builds some nice lean muscle shape, and 2) the more lean muscle you have, the more calories you’ll burn at rest, which will result in you maintaining your fat loss longer.
The last thing you want is to be rebounding and yoyo’ing. So by building lean muscle, you’ll help prevent that, while also looking lean and toned. If you’re just dieting and running, you’ll likely only end up a skinny-fat version of yourself, and in prime position to rebound later.
2. Improved Posture
In today’s society of sitting at desks and looking down on screens, our shoulders are rounded, hamstrings are tight, and our cores are weak. Lifting is a great way to restrengthen and reposition those areas, and restore posture. This also helps with opening up the diaphragm, improving breathing and circulation. Including lifts like the deadlift, squat, row and press, are all beneficial for total strength and posture improvement.
3. Bone Density
Not only will you increase muscle strength and mental strength, you’ll also improve bone density. This is helpful as we age. It’s common for bones to become weaker, so we want to combat that as long as possible, and lifting helps us to do just that.
Lifting weights doesn’t make you bulky – consuming too many calories do. Instead, lifting weights helps you to build and maintain a lean physique. It’s also a very empowering feeling.
Eat to lose the fat, lift to build a lean physique, and enjoy a sustainable fat loss – without the rebounds.
