Exercise Tip – Women and Weightlifting

Don’t be afraid to raise the bar! Many women shy away from weightlifting out of the fear of getting ‘bulky,’ which will not happen unless illegal performance enhancing drugs are used. Weight training has many benefits to include increasing bone mineral density and helping prevent osteoporosis. Men also need to lift weights to prevent muscle loss, which can begin as early as age 30 if not actively engaging in resistance training.
