5 weight training benefits for females looking to lose body fat!
Weight training for females will not make you look masculine, it will give you the lean, tones physique you have been striving for!!!
We don’t need to tell you that strength training will really aid in you looking, feeling and preforming better as an individual. Not only will it carry over to you having an overall better quality of life and improve your confidence, it will teach you so much more about yourself and aid in you being a more positive human being.
The proof is in the pudding with the female transformations we have been putting out, so let’s look at a few added benefits below.
1: It’s Enjoyable
Now lets me real here, who wants to spend multiple hours a week on a thread-mill or cross- trainer? Lifting weights allows for a fun approach to fat-loss, not only will you be doing different movements in the gym on a daily basis to sculpt your physique, you will also see progress in each lift as the weeks go on. Nothing is more satisfying on your fat-loss journey than to see yourself getting stronger and fitter as the weeks go by. If there is one thing that will keep you motivated and make you strive for more it will be this alongside the changes in your physique, energy levels and mood.
2: It provides more bang for your buck
Weight training increase your metabolic rate which means you will burn more calories than doing standard cardio. Adhering to a good weight training program alongside some high intensity conditioning work to finish your workout 3-4 times a week will do wonders for your physique.
3: It improves your quality of life
Endorphins are released during weight training and exercise. Endorphins have a pain-relieving and anti-depressant effect on the body. Weight training can also increase anti-depressant chemicals in the brain such as dopamine and serotonin. Try starting your day out with a weight training session prior to going to work and I guarantee you will feel more energised and be buzzing for the day ahead.
4: Stronger body overall
Weight training won’t just make you physically stronger, it will aid in you having a stronger immune system, stronger bones and also a stronger mind-set. Weight training will help you developed healthier habits in terms of food choices which will help increase energy levels and also improve your quality of sleep which all play a role in decreasing stress levels.
5: Better sex life
Not only will training hard and eating good quality food help you feel healthier and happier it will also increase your sex drive. With the added confidence you will gain from living a healthy lifestyle this will correlate over to you feeling confident about how you look naked when trying to impress someone else.
