…A person (female) will not bulk up with weight training, DON NIAM
Do yourself a favor and stop making excuses and start changing your life through fitness one step at a time!
When you go to many gyms today especially the well equipped health clubs, you will see loads of cardio equipment and various styles for use. People have been led to believe that it takes daily cardio of thirty to sixty minutes a day of cardio to lose weight and it’s just not true. If it were most of the people using the equipment would not be overweight.
Short intense bursts of high intensity cardio burns fat at an optimal rate. It takes strength training to add muscle tissue to your body which increases your metabolism and allows your body to burn fat. The need for weight training especially as we age is a must. As we age our bodies lose the muscle mass we have and it continues the older we get. This is why many people who never had weight issues, but also did not carry muscle mass at around mid 30’s to 40’s all of a sudden have extensive weight gain.
We all need strength training to help prevent injury, osteoporosis and keep us strong enough to enjoy our daily activities, family, loved ones and friends.
