You work hard in the gym, or so you think. You eat right, or so you think. You're pretty strong, at least for your size, or so you've been told. So why are you still stuck looking like someone who doesn't even lift?
Apart from weight loss and toning, weight lifting has other positives; it makes you feel strong, and who doesn't want a strong body? It also does wonders for your confidence, especially as you start to see noticeable changes to your body, and girl you did that!
Weights aren't just for powerlifters and strong men. Strength training keeps us structurally sound and underpins all other physical activities - whether you're in the gym, running around after your kids or sitting at a desk all week long.
Setting short term goals is very important; these help you to get closer to the long term goals you want to achieve down the line- as we know we cannot run before we walk. I think one of the major problems with us is that we want everything yesterday.
Endorphins should be the new buzz word for 2015. That is what exercise does for you and they are free. Endorphins boost your mood, leave you feeling happy and give you that feeling of really being alive.
