Women Weight Training 

Yes a woman also needs weight training as along with a balanced diet weight training often becomes important in losing weight. Many women actually fear from weight training because they think that they would turn in to some super bodybuilder famous women overnight. That is not correct, a women's body is not build up to put too m any muscles, the famous women body builders have build their body with extensive and vigorous weight training for years and some have even taken steroids to get that shape. When a women has high percentage of body fat it tends to get stored in more obvious regions like arms, hips, abdomen and also between the muscles. These fats actually take up lots of space in the muscles and give a larger look to the muscle.

When a women starts on a weight training the intramuscular fat from the muscles starts to melt and the muscle mass is remained unchanged. So there is no actual muscle building in women as seen in men, however if she continues the weight training for more than 2-3 years on regular basis then she may actually begin to put on some muscles. Thus weight training is a very good option along with appropriate diet to lose weight in a healthy way.
