Don’t avoid lifting weights, Ladies! Weight training can help you tone your muscles, decrease body fat, increase bone density, improve posture, increase muscle mass which helps to maintain a healthy metabolism, improve overall physique and much more.
“Healthy muscles matter! They let you move freely and keep your body strong. They also help to keep your joints in good shape. If the muscles around your knee, for example, get weak, you may be more likely to injure that knee. Strong muscles also help you keep your balance, so you are less likely to slip or fall.
And remember—the activities that make your skeletal muscles strong will also help to keep your heart muscle strong!”
