Before we even start with the reasons why, just take look at the image.
From left to right is 4 WEEKS change! Now that is what you call toning and this is just the start of her journey. It’s becoming increasingly popular amongst women, but many still fear they’ll end up too big or resemble body-builders, rather than create the lean physique they desire and end up doing endless hours of cardio (No No No, i'll cover that in another post)
So My Top 5 reasons are:
1. Weight training is THE KEY to losing fat
By weight training, you build lean muscle. Muscle requires more energy which raises metabolic rate so the more muscle you have, the higher your basal metabolic rate which means more calories will be burned over the course of a day.
2. No more slogging the cardio out like there's no tomorrow
The way the majority of women slog out cardio and wonder why they haven't lost much fat is the way our bodies energy system works (I'll explain this in another topic).
3. Curves and Toning
Build more muscle to create a physique that you acquire which increases the curves and tightens the skin.
4. Energy Increase
Weight training causes an increase in energy expenditure hours after you train. (Even up to 48 hours in some women from a published study)
5. Stress Relief
Exercise in general is a very good way to manage stress. Women who regularly strength train tend to manage stress a lot better and experience fewer adverse reactions to stressful situations as those who do not exercise.
So women, if your seriously wanting to lose fat get in the weights room and do more resistance training. The woman above in the picture hasn't even touched a cardio machine since she started and look at the difference in her physique.
With a correct tailored nutrition plan and program in place you WILL and I repeat you WILL acquire the physique your looking for and fit into that wedding dress or into your new beachwear for your next holiday!
