Should women train with weights?
Women should avoid this type of training, or was it just a myth?
Works as reinforcement for the joints and connective tissues preventing injuries
We now know that increasing and maintaining adequate muscle mass is one of the best ways to ward off body fat and still improve overall physical condition, especially as we age.
Introduction to John Barban
Through science we conclude that performing exercises with weights is the best way to build muscle mass.
Despite the evidence, the number of women who actually participate in any formal or consistent weight training is extremely low.
Most prefer to use your time doing cardiovascular exercises such as treadmill or bicycle.
Whatever the reasons for avoiding the weights, if you are a woman, here are some reasons why you need to work out with weights.
Become the physically stronger
Increase your strength, making it less dependent on others in everyday activities.
The studies conclude that even moderate exercise training with weights can increase the strength of a woman of 30 to 50 percent and that women can develop their strength at the same rate as men.
Will lose body fat
Studies conducted by various scientists in the field of physical activity and fitness, found that women who train two to three times a week for two months, earning about 1 kg of muscle mass and lose 1.5 kg of body fat.
