Strength Training For Fat Loss

Name one woman without dreams of beautiful body… you can’t. From NY to Moscow – fit body is always wanted and appraised by opposite sex. But there are right ways do exercise, make diets and set goals and there are wrongs ways… there are easier and there are harder ways… I will try to help as much as I can just to make sure that you will have the best shortcut available!

Strength training for women (let me finish..)  is one of the most effective ways to get and stay fit amongst men and women.

It helps to lose fat, shape body, increase bone density, improve balance, delay aging processes, it helps to IMPROVE you, it makes you feel better and be better! But remember to always consult with your doctor if you want to start weight training or some diet, or anything, because only doctor can truly say what is best for you (not me, not some “smartass” from neighbor house). And follow the tips your doctor will list down to you! That way you will keep your body and soul in perfect condition.

So some tips from me:
  1. When you perform some strength exercises let your muscles (those who you worked out that day) rest for at least 36 hours (or more) – this will help to avoid injuries and over training.
  2. You can’t lose weight constantly. And you can’t lose weight doing only one kind of exercises (crunches for example) even if you do them 300 reps a day. You can lose your fat only by considering good diet, getting good rest and exercising right way.
  3. You must follow your training program every workout. Concentrate on the exercise you are doing and forget about anything else on the world… that exercise, THAT muscle is the only thing that matters!
  4. Regular training programs. Follow your training program in long term too! Don’t try new and new program from time to time… stick with yours and results will come. Replace your bad habits with good ones!
  5. You can change your workout program after doing it about 2 months. This is the time you will get bored with the routine… so switch it! It will help you keep focused and help your muscles not to get used to that load.
  6. If you want to lose fat combine you strength training with some cardio. Strength training first, cardio after (not counting warming up). Your body starts to burn fat only after 30-40 min of exercising… so 30-40 min weight training and afterward cardio with fat burning!
