The idea of strength training scares a lot of women. There's this notion that you'll gain weight and become large/bulky. This is a myth I need to break down for my clients regularly. And I argue so passionately for the incorporation of strength training in your weight loss regime because it WORKS. And it works WELL.
Here's sOME Fitness Nerd science for ya...
Strength training can burn just as much as, if not more, fat than cardio. Yes, cardio can shrink you down. But this shrinking includes not only fat but MUSCLE. Strength training yields a high EPOC (or Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption). To put it simply, this means that your metabolism is revving. If done correctly, your EPOC can stay elevated anywhere from 24-48 hours after your strength training session. (AKA you are burning calories for up to TWO DAYS after you're completed a strength training workout!)
My program 100% destroys this "strength training makes you bulky" myth! In fact, if you follow my program, along with a clean diet, I guarantee you'll experience weight loss. You'll look and feel better, your clothes will start to feel loose, and you'll SEE how the one thing you may have been avoiding like the plague can be the best fat-busting tool you have in your arsenal.
