Weight Lifting for Women
By Lottie Olson
Weight lifting can be as important to your overall health as
aerobic exercise -- and it’s not just for men. Lifting weights can help women
build a toned, sculpted, feminine body, and build stronger bones. Plus it can
boost your metabolism, making you not only look great but feel great, too.
In this article we’ll show you more than 40 weight lifting exercises for women. These exercises are designed to tone your arms, legs, waist, back, chest, and shoulders. Warming up is essential before starting any kind of exercise, so we’ve included several warm-up exercises and stretching exercises to get you ready for your weight lifting workout.
Each exercise is broken down into easy-to-follow steps and illustrated with helpful photos. Incorporate these weight lifting exercises into your workout routine and enjoy the results.
