Weight Training for Weight Loss


Weight training combines building muscle tone and working the cardiovascular system. Weight training tones your muscles and raises your metabolism, which helps yourbody burn more calories not only when exercising, but also while you sleep.

Weight training reverses the natural decline in yourmetabolism, which begins around age 30 therefore this issomething to think about for all those who have reached thatage.

Working with weights can produce a great deal of energy,and a full workout works almost all of the 650 muscles in yourbody. Looking toward long-term benefits, weight trainingstrengthens bones, which can reduce your risk of developingosteoporosis. This of course is of very big concern amongstwomen, since osteoporosis afflicts women much more than men.

Many women worry that weight training will make them muscularand bulky like a man but you must keep in mind that men andwomen have different muscular structures, therefore weighttraining will not develop big muscles on women, just tonedmuscles.

Not only is weight training a routine that makes youstrong, it is a routine that trains the body to build muscleinstead of fat, takes stress off key areas of the body such asthe lower back, making you less prone to injury in that area.

Since high blood pressure or hypertension is a big concern withthose who are obese, it is welcome news that weight trainingdecreases your resting blood pressure.Weight training has alsobeen proven to increase your blood level of HDL cholesterol,which is commonly referred to as "good cholesterol.Overallhealth is definitely improved through weight training.

It is best to start with a plan, which may be joining a gymwhere you can regularly go to get a full workout, or purchasinga home workout system that uses resistance instead of weightsbut produces similar results. You must assess what type ofperson you are, and make the appropriate decision from there.

If you like the idea of going out somewhere daily for yourworkout, welcoming the change of scenery and benefiting from the comradery of others who are also training, then you may want to opt for a gym membership. However, if you know you are thetype that enjoys working alone and will not work out unless its in the convenience of your home where you do not have to getdressed and go out, then the home gym system option is for you.Only you can make this assessment of yourself.

Some popular home gym systems include CrossBarTM and BowFlexTM. Many quality home workout systems exist, but of course none work when not used, so be sure that you remain focused and dedicated to your plan.

Whatever you do, make your exercise experience one you look forward to each day.
