Benefits of Weightlifting for WOMEN (That every woman should know)

1. Lose Body Fat

Weight training builds muscle, as lean muscle increases so does metabolism. A higher metabolism means that you will burn more calories all day long. Studies found that the the average woman who strength trains two to three times a week for two months will gain nearly two pounds of muscle and will lose 3.5 pounds of fat. For each pound of muscle you gain, you’ll burn 35 to 50 more calories per day. That can really add up over the long term; for example, 4 extra pounds of muscle can burn up to 10 extra pounders per year!

2. Gain Strength Without Bulking

One of the most common reasons women avoid weight training is because they are afraid of “bulking.” This is a misconception as it physically can not happen. Women simply don’t have the testosterone to build muscle like men. Women have 10 to 30 times less testosterone than men and have a much harder time gaining size from strength training. Insead women develop muscle definition and strength without the size.

3. Decrease Risk of Osteoporosis

Weight training not only strengthens muscles, it strengthens your bones. Weight training increases bone density, which reduces the risk of fractures and broken bones. Research has also shown weight training can increase spinal bone density to create a strong and healthy spine.

4. Reduce Risk of Injury

Weight training also increases strength in connective tissues and joints. Strong joints, ligaments, and tendons are important to prevent injury and can relieve pain from osteoarthritis. Strengthening muscles and connective tissue will make injury from daily tasks and routine exercise less likely, and can even improve sports performance.

5. Burn More Calories

Weight training has been proven to raise your metabolism for up to 24 hours after a workout. The more intense the workout the more calories are burned. After an intense workout there is more Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption, or EPOC, meaning there is an increase in oxygen consumption, helping break down fat stores in the body.

6. Improve Posture and Reduce Back Pain

Weight-training will strengthen your back, shoulders, and core, helping to correct bad posture so that you can stand taller, with shoulders back and spine straight. A stronger back and core will also prevent lower back pain

7. Enhance Mood and Reduce Stress

Exercise and weight-training release endorphins. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that prevent pain, improve mood, and fight depression. An increased in endorphins naturally reduces stress and anxiety. Endorphins also stimulate the mind, improving alertness and boosting energy. Weight-training can brighten your entire day or help you combat a bad one.

Kickboxing Personal Training (1-to-1) – In Orchard

Going to the gym is great, but what if there’s an alternative fitness training that you can take up to ramp up your progress?

Perhaps another form of training that is fun, exciting, intense and sweat-busting?

How about giving Kickboxing a try?

Active Red Kickboxing Fitness and Gym - Personal Training In Orchard

Kickboxing engages your body in a whole different way!

It engages your;

  1. Upper body (derived from the hard-hitting punches you throw)
  2. Core (from the rotational punches and balance in the exercise)
  3. Lower body (from those awesome power-packed kicks you throw)
  4. Heart (from the non-stop punching/kicking combinations we give you)

With your entire body engaged throughout the session, it is definitely something you wouldn’t want to miss out on!

Make the most out of your 1-hour training with us!

Apart from giving your body a really great workout, learn various kickboxing combinations to improve your motor skills, hand-eye coordination, footwork and stamina!

Did we also mention that the harder you hit the bags (or pads), the more calories you burn?

Another great benefit of kickboxing is that it relieves stress and gives you that ‘feel-good’ factor after finishing the workout!

While burning tons of calories in this jam-packed 1-hour kickboxing session, you also get to tone up your body with every punch and kick because all your muscles will be engaged throughout the session!

If you’ve been experiencing a plateau in your fitness journey, why not take up kickboxing and accelerate your growth!
