Marilyn Monroe Working Out

Marilyn Monroe used to hit the weights and known as one of the

Most Beautiful Women in our History!!!

 

Regular strength training will:


**help you in day to day activities around the house and in your yard. It will keep you independent which is especially important in the older population. Imagine not being able to lift a 5 pound bag of flour or take the garbage out by yourself.

**lower the risk of osteoporosis, hypertension and diabetes.

**help you avoid lower back pain.

**increase bone density which is important for post-menopausal women.

**increase muscle mass which burns more calories throughout the day than an equal amount of fat.

Even with all these benefits, many people are reluctant to start training with weights. Concerns include injury, incorrect form and for women; not wanting to grow muscles and look like a man.

If you are a beginner and have no idea what you are doing either start with the circuit type machines or take an aerobic class that involves weights so you can become acquainted with how to do the different exercises.  Another great way of feeling more comfortable is bringing a friend to workout with you.  If you are not 100% sure how to do a movement either asks for help of skip it until you figure it out, you want to put yourself out of any sort of injury risk. If you want to stick with the machines, know that they will give you the same benefits as free weights.

Sometimes when we think of being healthy, we think of eating and running. While these are important, strength training should never be left out. Strength training provides benefits to your health that cannot be found with any other mode of exercise and shouldn’t be forgotten.

Next time you’re at the gym head over to the weights side of things and try doing a circuit.  2-3 sets of each exercise 15 reps with a weight that is not too easy but also not so heavy you cannot accomplish the 15 reps.
