Weight Lifting for Beginners

In simple terms, this means you’ll look better and feel stronger. And if you need to lose weight, strength training is an absolute must. Low calorie diets lower your metabolism – it’s been known for years that trying to lose weight with a low-calorie diet alone will just put you on the yo-yo diet roller-coaster. If you want to get off the roller-coaster and lose your excess weight permanently, you need to do something different. You need to use simple strength training exercises combined with a healthy diet low in sugar and fat, because this regimen will let you lose weight fast – and keep it off for good.

You don’t need to spend tons of money on a gym membership or on fancy home exercise equipment. This routine uses light dumbbells that you can purchase at your local Kmart or Target store. You choose the weight that you feel comfortable with for each exercise, starting with light dumbbells and working up as your strength and stamina increases. For less than $30, you have all the exercise equipment you need for this weight lifting routine.

"I’m only getting started, but this is the best-illustrated, easiest-to-use weight-lifting booklet I’ve ever found. The fact that it’s female-centric really, really *made* the decision to purchase it for me."

The fat-burning benefits of weight lifting exercises actually go on working even when you’re at rest. How can that happen?

Because muscle cells burn more energy than fat cells, and strong muscles burn more calories than flabby muscles. They also store sugar as a source of energy for the next time they’re used.

The sugar stored in muscle cells doesn’t turn into fat. And the improved metabolism means that you don’t have to worry as much about dieting. If you’ve been dieting for years, weight lifting exercises are even more important, because they allow you to correct the metabolic damage caused by your low-cal diets.

"I just started the program and I enjoy it! The book is very easy to understand and the pictures are great! I go to be at night looking forward to waking up to lift weights to challenge myself. I feel a small difference in the way my clothes fit and a huge difference about how my muscles feel (tight). Feeling the difference in the way my clothes fit really makes me yearn to lift weights and exercise. I’m very pleased with the book and have recommended it to some friends."

Eat right, practice a simple weight lifting program three times a week. Walk a few more blocks to work. That’s all it takes to get the improved metabolism that helps you lose weight even when you’re resting and having fun.
