A little history on me. I have been a Fitness Equipment Specialist and personal trainer for over 12 years and in all my research and dealings with training women I have found that the majority of woman have attempted to lose weight by dieting and cardio training. This is only a portion of the solution that you are looking for.
Here’s a break down of the benefits of Strength Training:
- Body Fat Loss
- Increased energy
- Efficiency of caloric burn
- Injury prevention
- Maintain Bone Density
- Weight Loss
- Improves your balance and coordination
- Helps to maintain a good cardio vascular system
- Enhance any sport you may play or do.
- Look better
- These are just some of the direct benefits of strength training
The way your body works is the more muscles you have, the more energy you require to make the body move. This is generally why men lose weight faster than woman. The Bigger bodies with more muscle for men means burning body fat faster.
The woman with the most lean muscle wins the game. You want to lose weight build and tone your muscle long with you cardio training. This is the ticket to victory and the missing link you seek.
