For women uninitiated in the world of lifting, one fear remains paramount: lifting weights leads to bulk. But that fear is simply unfounded.
In fact, lifting weights can burn fat and help you go from looking thin but soft to fit, trim and toned.
Here’s how lifting weights can help you burn fat:
So, now that you know this, where do you start? What size weight do you choose? Choose the weight that feels comfortable to you. It should allow for easy movement throughout the exercise and you should be able to perform the exercise correctly, with good form. Try 10 reps. If at the end of 10 reps you aren’t feeling tired or challenged, move up to a heavier weight.
What are you waiting for? Get lifting!
