Strength Training for Women—the Shocking Results
Strength training for women is an established fact. Whoever said that it's only for men is sadly misinformed. In fact, regular exercise and, more importantly, weight-bearing training, has many health benefits that are unique to women.
No, we aren’t talking about the typical “build lean muscles and burn stubborn belly fat” benefits, we’re talking about the benefits that you actually care about.
Here is a short list of just a few of the ways that exercise can enhance your life and empower you to feel comfortable in your own skin.
Strength Training for Women Promotes Glowing Skin
Ladies! What’s the number one reason that women (and men) want to get into shape?
They say that beauty is skin deep. We bet that you didn’t know that regular physical activity can actually beautify the skin on your face. An increase in physical activity can actually help you improve not only the health of your body, but also the gleaming glow of your skin.
How, you ask? Exercise helps to promote blood flow to your skin, bringing nutrients to promote collagen production while unclogging your pores. Let’s call that a win-win situation. Who knew getting in amazing shape can double as an all natural facial cleansing treatment. It’s important to remember to clean your skin after your sweat session so you can keep those toxins out of your body and off of your face.
Gain Confidence Beneath The Surface
Not only does exercise make you feel beautiful on the outside, but it will also help you feel amazing on the inside. Studies show that physically active women tend to have more positive self images when compared to women who do not partake in physical activity.
Exercise has a profound effect on combating depression and anxiety and can even improve your self image. This is due to key regulatory hormones that act to promote a greater sense of well-being. Plus, it’s really hard to not be self-confident when you’ve put in the time to earn an amazing physique.
You want that fit but sexy figure with curves in all the right places, right? Well, performing gymnastic exercises are a fantastic way to accomplish that. The GB Foundation Series was specifically designed with that goal in mind. To build long, lean muscles that irradiate confidence.
Develop Age Defying Muscle Strength
If you are worried that strength training will make you “too big and bulky”, you really shouldn’t. It’s physically impossible for the vast majority of women to gain serious muscle mass without hormonal assistance.
Due to hormonal differences, women have an increased chance of developing osteoporosis. A disease that results in diminishing bone density. Weight-bearing exercise can help reverse the effects of bone loss, while reducing your chances of developing this common condition.
The GB courses effectively combat onset osteoporosis and its distant relative, osteopenia, by strengthening your muscles and bones to withstand even the greatest of forces. Even your tendons and ligaments will become strong and mobile, thanks to the best gymnastic exercises and stretches. So, say goodbye to brittle, frail bones and say hello to a strong flexible physique.
Let exercise become your gateway to better physical and emotional health and reveal a new and improved YOU with GymnasticBodies training for women.
