Ladies please stop worrying about becoming to muscular; it’s not going to happen. Lifting weights is not going to make you look like a man. People have the wrong idea about lifting weights.
Let me set the record straight: 34% of a woman’s body weight is comprised of muscle and it would be impossible for you to do anything without your muscles. Absolutely everything that you conceive of with your brain is expressed as muscular motion. Skeletal muscle is the type of muscle that we can see and feel. When a body builder works out to increase muscle mass, skeletal muscle is what is being exercised.
Aerobic workouts are great for burning fat but as soon as you stop so does the fat-burning process. Weight training increases muscle density, which keeps you burning calories 24/7, and the more you have, the more calories are burned without you even having to lift a finger. So many individuals go on that crash diet and spend hours doing cardio only to find themselves in worst shape then when they started. They lose fat and muscle at the same time. This is not good. Often this creates the appearance of loose skin.
Adding weight training to your program will allow you to eliminate those problem ares and sculpture your body into a work of art. There is nothing you can’t do with the right training program. So don’t be so quick to blame those problem areas on age. With the correct weight training program your body will amaze you.
