Whether you’re a cross-fit junkie, dedicated triathlete or three-day-a-week treadmill walker, there’s one thing everyone who works out regularly has in common: you eventually get bored. After weeks or months of doing the same exercise, in the same place, at the same time, not only is your body no longer challenged, but your mind starts craving something more. The solution is simple. To get the most out of fitness, you’ve got to switch things up!
Reluctant to try resistance training? Many women think it will make them look too muscular or that their routines are tough enough without it. But strength-building exercises are a smart addition to a healthy fitness plan, and they can be easily incorporated into anyone’s weekly workout. In fact, two to three 20-minute sessions a week are really all you need to start seeing benefits!
If you’ve shied away from strength training because you think it’s going to blow up your arms, making you look like a cartoon-character bodybuilder, you’re not alone. Many women avoid using weights because they don’t want to get “buff.” But the truth is, adding strength and resistance training to your workout routine comes with a number of benefits, with toned, attractive muscles being just one of many.
