Notice anything new on my blog today? I’ll give you a clue, it’s on the right hand side of the page. That awesome Tribesports badge is my new pride and joy. Tribesports has given me the opportunity to be a blog partner, and I’m super excited. Don’t know what Tribesports is? It’s a social network for sports, fitness and healthy living enthusiasts. Members are encouraged to connect with others, take fitness challenges, share advice and recipes and log their training data and lifetime achievements. Sounds like something I’m interested in for sure! One of the cool things is that I will get the opportunity to spread the fitness love with you! I’m pretty excited about this, considering my blog has been lacking in the fitness area lately. Too much craziness!
Today on Tribesports, a great post by Nia Shanks was posted on the blog! The blog is about women and weightlifting. I know so many women are afraid of being swoll, huge, masculine beings by lifting. Totally not true!
In the post, Nia lists 4 reasons why women most definitely should lift! It also has this beginning lifting workout!
Starting with just four exercises is totally doable, and you can notice quick results that will lead to increased confidence! Sounds good to me!
I urge you to head over to Nia’s post for more benefits of lifting. I really know that I should be better about strength training. I used to do is 3 times a week when on the university swim team but let it fall behind. Definitely not good!
“The myth that women shouldn’t lift heavy is advanced only by women who fear effort, and men who fear women” – LOVE THAT!
Do you lift and strength train on a regular basis?
