Before we get into the nitty-gritty of why women should lift weights to lose weight, first let’s clarify what is weight lifting, or resistance training. We usually associate it with men and big muscles. But you know what? This stereotype is holding back best results!
Although it is correct that when men lift weights they gain muscle and get bigger in stature, the same is not true of women. Why? Because of the differing sex hormones in men and women.
