HOW STRENGTH TRAINING HELPS WEIGHT LOSS (FOR WOMEN)

Strength training/weight training will make me look masculine !! . If you assumed the same until now, then this blog will help you shift that perspective. Strength training to lose weight fast might be the best way to gain your fitness goals. Why? Because it helps to gain lean muscle mass and helps lose overall body fat content (combined with calorie deficit diet).

Let’s take a deeper look into it and understand how  strength training programs help with weight loss.

  • Weight training helps in fat loss

    One of the best ways to keep body fat at bay and to improve overall fitness is by  increasing and maintaining adequate muscle mass, which is done by lifting weights.  As and when you gain lean muscle, it will help improve your resting metabolism, that helps you burn calories throughout the day, even when you’re not physically active. 
  • Strength training helps gain strength without bulking

    Women have around 10% of testosterone which  increases levels of growth hormone. That makes exercise more likely to build muscle. That is how  unlike men, women typically don’t gain size from strength training. You will develop muscle tone and definition without the size. Eventually your muscle tissues will tear down and rebuild themselves to build new muscle. You will gain physical strength and the confidence that comes with it. 
  • Strength training reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes

    When you’re lifting weights 3-4 times a week, your cardiovascular health will be improved by lowering bad cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol. this will eventually  will help to lower blood pressure. Furthermore, the way your body processes sugar will be developed, which may reduce the risk of diabetes.
  • Strength training enhances mood and improves mental health

    We all know by now that when you exercise , your brain releases happy hormones called such as endorphins, dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. This hormone helps to fight stress, pain, depression and elevates our mood. Personally when I started lifting, it made me more disciplined and gave me a sense of control over my body. 
  • Weight training improves bone health

    Our bones lose density with age and after menopause women are also short on estrogen that protects bone density. With lifting weights, the stress caused on the bones will slow down the process of bones losing more calcium and help to sustain bone strength and reduce the risk of osteoporosis (Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both. As a result, bones become weak and may break from a fall or, in serious cases, from sneezing or minor bumps.)

So ladies, don’t hesitate and lift those weights !
