Bodybuilding and Weightlifting are great ways for women to boost their metabolism, sculpt the body, and keep the body toned. Weight training will also help build healthier and stronger bones. Many women have the misconception that Bodybuilding and weightlifting are only used to build bulky muscles and therefore, a lot of women are turned off to the idea. When you weight train, your body actually will burn fat during your workout and continue to burn fat even after you completed your workout routine. This is a huge benefit to using weight resistance training.
Bodybuilding To Get That Hour Glass Figure:
Do you want that beautiful hour glass shape? That is how Bodybuilding and weight lifting can transform your body. By building muscle, your body will begin to transform into that hour glass shape that will make you feel and look beautiful. Strength training can help you maintain that beautiful hour glass shape. If you lose too much fat and do not continue to strength train, your body can start losing those beautiful curves. It is very important to continue your weight training routine to maintain a beautiful and healthy body. Bodybuilding is the perfect way to start. As with all workouts, healthy eating is a must. What should women eat to build “non-bulky” muscle mass?
Bodybuilding For A Better Nights Rest:
Women who weight train fall asleep quicker and get a better nights rest. They tend to go into a much deeper sleep and wake up less throughout the night, allowing for a better quality of sleep. You will feel so much more refreshed. A study published in the International SportMed Journal suggests that morning resistance training or high intensity training greatly affects the quality of sleep and lengthens the time of sleep the night after training.

Bodybuilding Will Increase in Energy:
Weight training will give you more energy hours after you finish your weight training workout. If you are feeling sluggish don’t reach for that cup of coffee or that soda loaded with caffeine. Make the healthier choice and reach for that dumbbell instead. You will notice an increase in energy and will not experience that caffeine crash a short time after.
Bodybuilding For A Healthier Heart:
Women who weight lift have less risk in developing heart disease, including high triglycerides, high glucose levels and high blood pressure. This is according to a study done by The Journal of Strength and Conditioning.
Bodybuilding For Healthier Bones:
Unfortunately, as we become older, so do our bones. We start to lose muscle and bone mass. This applies even more for Postmenopausal women. Postmenopausal women no longer generates estrogen and therefore, are at a larger risk for developing osteoporosis, which is a disease that weakens bones, increasing the risk of sudden and unexpected bone fractures.
Final thought About Bodybuilding and Weight Training:
