In a recent Time magazine report, a monitored weight-training programme was found to have been one of the most successful ways of getting into shape. Strength training re-shapes the body, helps increase your metabolism and therefore burn more fat and according to researchers it helps prevent osteoporosis. And not just that, there were plenty of other benefits too. For example, improved libido (more testosterone in your system), higher energy and drive, better complexion, better concentration spans and interestingly, a powerful anti-ageing tool. Not bad for working out on a few machines in the Gym or doing some basic resistance training at home with little or no equipment.
‘Hold on’, scream the females, ‘We don’t want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in drag’. This is a common concern. But it’s actually impossible for that naturally to happen. When ladies train, they gain that lean muscle toned look.
