THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
Question: OK, you have convinced me. I am going to start training with weights. What can I expect?
Answer: So now we can all lift weights! What good will that do? Well, for starters, your strength is not the only thing that will improve. Your body is going to look different as well. Your body fat will drop, and you will increase your lean muscle mass, so you will have a longer, leaner look. Also your chest, back, abdominals, arms and legs will become stronger. Your posture will improve, your bone mass will increase, your resting heart rate will probably drop and you will decrease your risk of injury to your joints and bones. Not too bad for a little weight training two or three times a week, and you can do it in as little as 30 to 45 minutes per workout.
