Pick up a weight! Women, need not be afraid of resistance training – “bulking up” is a myth. Lifting weights will make you look more tone, lead to a decrease in body fat, and boost your metabolism. Plus the lean muscle you develop will burn extra calories 24/7. For best results, use a weight that challenges you, so that you are only able to complete between 8-15 repetitions per set.
