Why Strength-Training is Important for Women

DID YOU KNOW…Over 80% of women forgo strength-training?  If you’re one of them, it may be one of the reasons your scale is stuck. You’ve probably heard that strength-training can boost metabolism, but here’s something you may not know: People who pair aerobic and resistance training eat less—  as much as 517 fewer calories a day less, than those who do only cardio. The combination may increase satiety hormones more and boost the body’s ability to break down food and stabilize blood sugar, so you feel full longer, says author Brandon S. Shaw, PhD.

QUICK TIP…Add weight training 3 times a week and you could lose up to 12.5 pounds in a year!
