As we celebrate mothers this month, May is the perfect time to focus on weight training for women’s weight loss. Many women believe that cardio is the only path to weight loss and that weight lifting will add bulk to their frames. However, that’s a misconception! Strength training builds lean muscle tissue that tones and shapes your body, helps you lose weight, and doesn’t add bulk but instead makes you look leaner! Weight training is often associated with big, muscle-bound bodies pumping iron – however, the super-slow strength training offered at Loyalty Fitness tones and shapes your body without building too much bulk.
Our research-based training methods focus on building lean muscle tissue that can both strengthen your body and burn fat. Super-slow strength training allows you to strengthen your muscles through focused, controlled lifting. Research shows that slow resistance training can strengthen muscles 50 percent more than standard weight lifting. However, that doesn’t mean that it adds bulk. Strengthening muscles allows them to perform more effectively and burn more calories instead of adding mass.
Strengthening Muscles Burns More Calories
When your muscles are strong, they need more energy. Turning your existing fat into muscle means that your body will burn more calories even at rest as those muscles require more energy than fat does. This turns your body into a fat burning machine! Super-slow strength training allows you to turn fat into muscle and tone your body without adding additional bulk to it. Weight lifting for women’s weight loss is the ideal option!
Our method helps you build muscle tissue faster by going slow. With super-slow strength training, you’re working muscles to fatigue in fewer reps in a controlled fashion which means there’s much less risk for injury. Whether you’re new to weight training, have a previous or current injury, or are just curious about weight lifting for women’s weight loss, let the experienced trainers at Loyalty Fitness help.
