#TrainerTipTuesday: Should Women Be Wary To Lift Heavy Weights?

Published
08/30/2016

By: Marty Murphy, Personal Trainer

Of course not! It is a common misconception that if a woman lifts heavy weights she will get big and bulky. This is simply NOT true. The benefits of heavy weight training for a woman are stronger, leaner muscles that help speed your resting metabolism, which in return helps you burn more calories sitting still.  It also improves bone density, which is extremely important as a woman ages. As your body grows stronger you help reduce the risk of injury, back pain, arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes.  Women of all ages can benefit from weight training, it is never too late to start.
