Lifting is about more than building muscle, although it undoubtedly helps carve a killer physique.
There’s no question about it; women should lift. It’s about more than looking good in the mirror, although it’ll likely make your curves pop. Lifting weights can transform you from the inside out and change things for the better.
- TO BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE
The number one reason women should lift is for the confidence boost.If you just keep going to the gym and keep lifting, you’ll build up your confidence. You’re going to walk into the gym, use the equipment you need, and kill your reps and your sets. And you know what,!! So what if people are watching? They probably want tips or want to know how you’re doing what you’re doing. Nothing feels better than when you’re in the gym with that kind of confidence…..For Example..It’s so rewarding to put on a dress or your favorite pair of jeans and have those curves. You feel good about your body and walk out there in the world knowing that you look and feel great.And espically when they ask you what you do, you give them the answer:I lift.!
- TO EAT MORE CARBS.
Who doesn’t love to eat? When you lift, you get to eat all the carbs. Well, maybe not all the carbs you want, but a lot of carbs. If you’re lifting with intensity at the gym, you have to eat. You won’t have a successful workout if you aren’t properly fueled.
Still, a lot of women are scared of carbs and wonder if upping their intake will cause them to gain weight.Some good news for you: It won’t if you’re lifting with intensity and have consistency in the gym. You need those carbs to change your physique.
- TO SCULPT ALL THE RIGHT CURVES
Lifting weights is going to put muscle on your body, change your shape, and change the way you fit into your clothes. Cardio alone is not. A lot of women get caught up in spending hours in the gym on the treadmill. Don’t get me wrong..it’s important to do cardio..but lifting weights will definately add curves,ur butt and glutes will grown..you will have awesome legs and you will be not scared to show them.!
- TO BURN MORE CALORIES
The best part of lifting is the EPOC(excess post-exercise oxygen consumption.).When you do cardio only, you’re burning fat but not really building muscle. When that cardio session ends, the fat burning stops. When you lift weights with intensity, you’re burning fat and calories, too.Your metabolism rate has increased, and you’re burning calories all day long,even after your gym session is over and you’re home resting,even ur sleeping.The more muscles you have, the more calories you burn.
- TO STRENGTHEN YOUR BONES
While you might not be concerned with it just yet, women are at higher risk than men for osteoporosis, which means a higher risk for fracturing and breaking bones. A great way to minimize that risk is by lifting weights with intensity…Go to the gym and use machines and heavy weights.!!GO HARD.!.You will build muscle mass, increase your bone density, and increase your strength, which will help you later in life.
- TO DO THINGS FOR YOURSELF
Lifting weights is empowering. Whether it’s carrying your groceries,or doing house work or anything ur doing in ur daily routine, lifting gives you the choice to do things on your own rather than waiting for someone to help.Its never too late to get started.!!.Everything is in ur mind.!!
