It seems that women are so afraid of looking bulky when it comes to lifting weights. In reality, our estrogen makes it so that we don’t build muscle in the same way that men do. And muscle burns way more calories than fat. That’s right, building muscle will help your metabolism to work faster … score!
Use a combination of strength training and cardio and you’ll have the best results. Find out about a new study supporting what we have known for years: http://www.usatoday.com/yourlife/fitness/exercise/2010-10-11-fabfitdoctorsorder11_ST_N.htm?csp=usat.me
There are many strength training classes and DVDs that are geared toward women. One of my favs is Chalean Extreme.
