Benefits of strength training

Want to look good naked?

Here's how strength training will help you drop dress sizes and have you fitting into those tight sexy jeans that you always wanted to wear.

Weight training increases your bodies resting metabolic rate, which in turn, allows you to burn fat even while you are a sleep. Weight driven workouts also raise your metabolism for up to 20 hours after a session, where as when it comes to cardio exercise, the calorie burning stops soon after you stop.

Many people are concerned that they will build big, bulky muscles after just a few sessions of weight training, but rest assured this is not the case. Men can develop bigger muscles with an intense hypertrophy program but most women lack the testosterone levels to do so. In fact, the focus of strength training is not on building muscle mass or size, but developing a firm, "toned" physique while also dramatically increasing overall strength. You can't tone muscle you don't have.

The benefits of weight training are huge and include you becoming a fitter, thinner and sexier version of the you. Allowing you to feel more confident, positive and empowered. By creating a higher resting metabolic rate, improving your muscle tone and developing greater muscular strength and cardiovascular fitness, you will also be increasing your endurance and bone density. Plus, it has been documented that increased levels of dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine help to improve your mood and counter feelings of depression.
