Another great blog from Dan that I have decided to repost...
I am so glad that our society has recognised the need for women to be fit and healthy. Not the old thinking that women have to be “thin” or “skinny” because that just promotes young girls to starve themselves, do too much cardio and become malnourished. Society has now shifted to the right way of thinking, which is, women need to be fit and lift weights just like men. This teaches a healthy lifestyle and encourages women to have functional goals that are more attainable, helps mobility and boost your self-confidence.
The main reason I got into strength training/body building was to see how strong I could become and control the way my body worked. I wanted to look and feel like a super hero (The Hulk to be specific) and that has always been my “strive for greatness”. Now that I am going to compete in my first powerlifting competition, I will be able to test my potential and see just how strong I am. I feel everyone including women, should be focused on building muscle and gaining strength. With this is a focus of building muscle mass all of us will see a huge positive change in performance and aesthetics. You will notice you dance a little better, swim a little stronger and run a little faster.
With the idea that all woman need to be lifting weights and gaining muscle mass I have listed some reasons as to why I feel “Ladies need to Lift”
Those are just a few reasons why Ladies need to lift and I hope you have learned how important it is to incorporate weight lifting into your gym routine.
