Female Weight Training

Men and women can train in a similar manner to gain muscles. Body fat decreases and the strength and endurance levels are enhanced. Weight training, cardio and diet play a vital role in weight control. Most of the physiological processes in men and women are similar. Testosterone is essential for muscle packing in the body.

Hence women lose fat and tone up, whereas in the case of men, the muscle gain increases.

Workouts in a gradual manner are important, as improper workouts can be injurious and have a negative effect. Building and protection of the muscle mass, during old age is helpful. The greater the amount of stimulation, the greater is the density of the bones, thereby preventing the risks of osteoporosis and fracture. Different sizes of the weights are used during the weight training session, in order to put more force on the various muscle. Gradual increase in the weights, during training is of immense help. Bone diseases are prevented in women, by taking up weight lifting.

Weight training in women increases the resting metabolism or the amount of calories burnt in the rest. An individual's moods are made better and the strength increases. Muscle endurance is increased, thereby resulting in increased strength.
