I’m NOT saying every woman NEEDS to resistance train (I understand physical limitations),
🤯but 90% of the coaching questionnaires I read say they want to get “toned” but they’re not doing any sort of training currently.
Resistance training causes micro tears to muscle cells which causes them to be repaired to grow stronger.
💛aids in weight loss/burns more calories over time
💛increases metabolism (!)
💛helps look “leaner” because your muscles are being built up/changes the SHAPE of our bodies
💛protection from injury as we age
💛enhancing flexibility & balance
💛prevents or controls chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease & arthritis
💛increased bone density
💛enhances performance of everyday tasks
🧐Does this mean you shouldn’t ALSO do exercise that you love maybe a little more? (Like classes or running)
🔥I just recommend most women add in at least 3 days of resistance training per week to start getting alllll of those amazing benefits listed above.
(PS yes endurance based activities are still super beneficial for your ol’ ticker ♥️ so don’t completely abandon them, just balance ‘em out)
💪🏻💃🏼It’s my mission to get every woman comfortable with resistance training. Don’t even get me started on being scared of “bulky”.
⏳It takes YEARS to build a good muscle base, so let’s get to werkkkk.
