WEIGHT training is just as effective for fat loss as it is for building muscle, so fear not, ladies – working with weights for fat loss won’t turn you into a ball of rippling muscle… if you do it correctly!
Weight training will help you lose weight, get in shape and tighten up all those flabby areas you’ve been covering up. In fact, according to a study in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, women who complete an hour-long strength-training workout burned an average of 100 more calories in the 24 hours afterward than they did when they hadn’t lifted weights! At three sessions a week, that’s almost 16,000 calories a year… or more than 2kg of fat!
Take the right approach to your workout routine and you’ll not only develop a lean, clean fat-fighting machine but you’ll be burning more calories when you’re not in the gym, too. How good is that!
So what are you waiting for? Off you go!
