The Importance of Weight Training
So many women think that weight training will make them bulky or that it is just for men. However, building lean muscle can increase your resting metabolism by approximately 200 calories per day. Also, you will burn approximately 200 more calories during your weight-training workout. If you do that 3 times per week, and keep building lean muscle, you will burn up to an additional 2,000 calories per week from weight training and your metabolic response to it.
Not to mention, building muscle will increase your stamina and you will feel more energetic during normal, everyday tasks like walking up the stairs, cleaning the house or playing with the kids!
