So, why all the hype around Resistance Training? Read on to find out why you should incorporate this style of training into your schedule – get the idea of grunting men at the gym out of your head!
First up, Resistance Training will NOT make women bulky, overly muscular or look like anything resembling Arnie! We are built differently to men – we can't bulk up as men can!
Regular Resistance Training increases overall bone health – which is so important as we age. No old broken bones for us!
Resistance Training will also help preserve the amount of muscle you have as you get older. From the age of 30, our muscle mass starts to decrease naturally – the more we can combat the effects of ageing, the better!
The more muscle you have on your body, the more energy your body burns throughout the day. This makes resistance training a great thing to incorporate if your goals are weight loss or you like the idea of eating more to fuel your days!
This type of training is very empowering! There is nothing better than feeling strong, seeing your fitness increasing and being able to increase your weights in workouts!
With regular resistance training, you will start to notice muscle definition and body composition changes! For this reason, we recommend not tracking your progress using the scales – your weight may not alter, but your body shape will start to change. Take a look at our DediKate member's testimonies on our 'Ditch the Scales' page for more about this!
Resistance training will increase your overall health and fitness, making everything you do on a day to day basis easier. Think picking up your children, gardening, lifting heavy objects, etc.
Resistance training is more than lifting heavy weights – resistance bands and body weight are also great! Try adding pulses to bodyweight movements, or holding exercises like squats, lunges or push-ups for longer. Take a look at this blog post for some household alternatives to weights too!
Adding one to two resistance training sessions to your weekly workout plan will benefit your health in so many ways, not to mention it will help you feel more confident, capable and STRONG! DediKate offers these and many other types of workouts, with new workouts added every week.
