Workout Wednesday: Strength Training


What will strength training do for you?

Strength training is one of the best ways to… build muscle, lose fat and build insane strength.  Strength training is the main form of weight training for athletes, especially those in sports like football, wrestling, track, gymnastics and power lifting (any physical sport really…).

If you’re a woman, strength training will help you…

  • get a tight, toned fitness look through your arms, thighs, butt and stomach
  • make you stronger, and give you more energy
  • stay lean ( You will NOT, I repeat NOT get big and bulky)

What is Strength Training?

Strength training is about working your body’s large muscle groups in natural movements (squats, deadlifts, bench press etc..) that result not only in an improved physique, but also a noticeable increase of strength and improved athletic ability.
