So whats the problem?
Australia’s obesity rate is the second fastest growing in the world with over 63% of Australians being overweight and it is expected that as a country we spend over 1 million dollars PER DAY on fad diets.
With statistics such as these, you would think that more women would know the benefits of weight and resistance training can have on every aspect of their health and wellbeing!
1: More effective weight loss- Resistance training burn calories! The advantage to lifting weights helps your body burnfat during AND after exercise.
2: More muscle = more calorie expenditure: As you increase your strength and lean muscle your body burns calories more efficiently .
3: Killer Kardashian Kurves- What women doesn’t want that Kardashian hourglass? With increased strength training women develop that desired hourglass shape.
4: Better sleep- Strength training greatly improves sleep, helping you sleep faster, more deeply and wake less often during the night.
5: Increased energy- A study published by the National Institute of Health suggests that the increase in energy expenditure, even after a minimal resistance training session, may favorably effect energy balance and fat oxidation. So rather than an afternoon cup of coffee, pick up a dumbbell.
6: Heart health- Reduced risk or heart disease and lowered blood pressure and resting heart rates. Whats not to love?
7: Bone health- Resistance training combats the loss of bone mass and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
