Strength Training For Women

Strength Training

Just because you're female doesn't mean you should shy away from using weights or engaging in other types of resistance workouts. You don't even need to be a body builder! In fact, you don't even have to use weights to perform strength-training exercises!
Strength-training exercises are essential to muscle growth, improving strength and tone, and developing muscle endurance. For best results, these types of exercises should be performed at least twice per week. It is a good idea to consult a certified personal trainer to learn the proper techniques for these exercises. If done improperly, muscle strain or injury could result.
Examples of strength-training exercises include push-ups, pull-ups, bicep curls, and bench presses. Even carrying a full laundry basket around the house counts as a strength-training exercise!
