A lot of women are afraid to lift weights or add strength training into their routine because they do not want to ‘bulk up’. Adding in a little weight training is not going to make you the hulk, so don’t worry. However, strength training, or resistance training, builds muscle tone which is GOOD because the more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn. Building muscle speeds up your metabolism and helps it stay revved up even after you have completed your workout.
Cardio, especially HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts) help burn fat which allows you to see that gorgeous muscle tone that you have built. So ladies, you really need both in order to get those sexy beach bodies that you want 😉 Remember ladies, strong, not skinny, is the new sexy 😉
