Body Should Start Lifting Weights
I think that it's great that women's bodybuilding revolution has
been building momentum over the past few years. There are
more and more women pumping iron and looking stronger,
better and leaner than ever before.
But there are still plenty of women who avoid the weights area
in fear of getting muscles like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Leave
that for us guys. Besides, that would never happen and you don't
even have to worry about packing on huge muscle mass either
unless you take steroids.
If anything lifting weights will make you look learner, stronger,
and more toned?
good bye to unwanted fat and those annoying love-handles and
get your body whipped into shape just in time for bikini season?
If so, then you’ll want to take a look at these seven awesome
reasons to lift weights. We'll start with...

fatigue, if you are using lighter weights. You won't instigate
boost, if you aren't challenging yourself.
Reason Number 4: You will achieve better body symmetry.
Too many women have really strong legs, but their upper body
is weak. With weight training, you build muscle evenly over
your entire body, not just your legs as you might with cardio.
This results in an overall healthier and stronger body that works
better, feels better, and looks better.

more toned body.
