Most women avoid lifting heavy weight while working out due to the fear of bulking up their muscles (which is an absolute myth). One can reap many health benefits of lifting heavy weights. Trainers recommend that you choose a weight you can lift for 6-10 reps. What’s more?

Let’s look at some of the benefits of weight lifting-

 

  1. Helps build lean muscle: Women don’t have enough testosterone to naturally get muscles that big. So get that fear out of your head! Weights are great for toning and much more effective for achieving a tighter body
  2. Good for your bones: it’s one of the only ways to increase bone density and stiffness of the connective tissues
  3. You burn a lot many more calories: increased metabolic rate = losing more calories
  4. Good for your mental health: women are found to have felt more positive after seeing the transformation in their body since regularly lifting
