WHY WOMEN SHOULD LIFT WEIGHTS

I was reading an article on theptdc.com and it really caught my eye. A lot of women seem to think lifting weights will make them “bulky” or “too muscular”. I have been lifting weights for over 7 years and I managed to still look like a woman hahaha. The article is called “77 Trainers Explain Why Women Should Lift Weights“. Women do not have the testosterone to become “bulky” and it’s a common misconception I hear. Below are a few reasons I really liked off this article:

“Strength training can increase the amount of muscle in your body, which in turn will decrease your body fat percentage, and improve your overall body composition” – Cynthia Redford

“Lifting weights means you can eat more without getting fat” – Reece Mander

“How much does your father weight? If he falls to the floor, how could you help him? Can you lift him or you will need to call someone??” – Antonio Ventin Cptrainers

“You don’t have the balls to bulk up” – Steven Hicks [this is funny because it’s true, not enough testosterone.]

“Lifting heavy will change your life like nothing else. Not only will you become stronger physically, but mentally and emotionally stronger as well. You will be able to handle anything that life throws at you.” – Kimberly Mills

“Well, going to the gym in your nice little workout outfit, with matching shoes and earbuds, wearing your hair down with makeup, walking on the treadmill for 20 minutes sure as heck ain’t gonna cut it sista’!” – Jason Ryan Edenfield

“Woman shouted for equal rights,u got them,now lift it bitch,lol,” – Wendy Mitchell

“With only cardio you will go from a big pear to a smaller pear but you will still be a pear. Weights will help change your bodyshape not to mention all the health benefits.” – Claudia Popoviciu

“Everybody wants a bikini body, but nobody wants to lift no heavy ass weight. If you want to look average, train average, ill wave to you on the stepper… Want to look above average?… Ill see you at the squat rack” – Callan Headrick

For the mama’s out there:

“Women are made to be able to lift her child and run when there is danger. Being able to lift heavy stuff without getting hurt makes your life a lot easier, if speaking beyond survival.” – Nattha Ploy

“Do you have any children? How heavy are they?” – Michael Park

“Did you know heavy weight lifting is the best defense against aging, keeps shopping for clothes enjoyable, and gives you the ability to lift and play with your children and grandchildren?” – Erika Nall

“What does your child weigh ? How many times have you lifted and carried then and for how long.” – Gerard Sheehan

WORKING OUT FOR BUSY MOMS

  1. If you work, try to to wait till after work to get your workout in. It probably won’t happen. So, get your workouts before you do anything, whether it’s work or before the kids wake up. Even as a stay at home mom, you are more likely to workout if you get it out before the babies are up.
  2. Schedule it as part of your day as a non-negotiable. You are more likely to keep an appointment if you have it blocked off in your calendar.
  3. Planning helps but knowing what you are going to do when you get that time to workout is also very important. When you have your workout ready beforehand you have a chance of getting your workout out faster.
  4. If you get a lunch break or if you are a stay at home mom and you are eating lunch, take a walk or run during that free time. Make sure you get your meal in first.
  5. I believe having your kids as part of your workout routine helps mommies stay in shape. Have fun with your babies or your toddlers. While they are lying down next to you do planks, sit ups, squats, lunges, etc. You get the point. If they are toddlers play a game of tag or push them on the swings. Make it fun for both of you.
  6. If you go to the park or jungle gym, use the benches for step ups, run with your stroller, or walk around in the sand.
  7. I said this before but running with your kids is the best way to get a work out in. Play tag with them. Soccer is a good sport to incorporate toddlers. You get cardiovascular benefits because of this.
  8. Be a ninja. Get a workout in when you get 10 minutes of free time from your kids. Run around for 10 minutes, do lunges for 10 minutes, jumping squats etc.
  9. Go outside. This is especially important for new moms. A lot of new mom’s are so excited and love their new babies so much that they just sit and watch their kids. Remember sitting down does not expel that many calories. If your kids are awake, put them on the stroller and walk around the block or go to a park.
  10. Don’t beat yourself up. You are a mommy and time with your kids is very important. Sometimes you are going to miss a workout and that’s totally okay, just don’t make it a habit. Remember being healthy allows you to give your child more.

BENEFITS OF COMPOUND EXERCISES

What is a compound exercise? A compound exercise incorporates several muscles or muscle group at one time.

  1. They burn more calories. Since you are using your more than one muscle group, your body will burn more calories doing compound exercises.
  2. They improve intermuscular coordination. Meaning it allows muscles and joints to work together to improve how they work together.
  3. They elevate your heart rate and can work to improve cardiovascular fitness. Your body is using multiple muscles at once so your body is working harder to keep up with the movement which elevates your heart rate and improves your cardiovascular fitness.
  4. Can be considered a form of dynamic flexibility. 
  5. Improve movement efficiency. They can actually help improve movement skills and dynamic balance, which can actually help improve overall quality of life.
