I’m sure you know I’m a great advocate of weight training for both men and women. I know a lot of women avoid weight training because they fear becoming bulky and muscular. But let me tell you that most women who actually want to get muscular find it very difficult. You have to be very focused and work extremely hard if you want to put on a lot of muscle. For the ordinary weight trainer whose main objective is not to become bulky, then it just isn’t going to happen. Unless you have the right genetics, train extremely hard and regularly, eat every 2 to 3 hours, take in protein at every feed and take a long list of dietary supplements, then you’re going to get some nice tone and nothing more.
But the benefits of weight training go far beyond aesthetics. They are many and varied, particularly for women as they get older, both during and after the menopause.
