Why should you strength train?

This is a simple feature that highlight some of reasons why everyone, but especially women, should strength train. For years women have avoided anything that might add ‘bulk’ to their frame, but there are so many health and functional benefits to having some muscle, bulking up is really unlikely (you need to follow a very specific weights and nutrition programme for that to happen). In fact, most trainers you will see have some definition but even though they train regularly they don’t look like bodybuilders, why? because they aren’t training to be one. Simple.

So once you have read that – what is strength training? Try this plan – adding in extra reps or weight as your body adapts (you find it easier).
