Power fitness for beginners: womens workout
Why we are talking about losing weight? The fact that the majority of women, going to the gym in the first place seek to get rid of excess weight. May it help the power bar? Yes, it’s one of its functions:
- Weight training burn a lot of calories.
- Resistance training significantly accelerates the metabolism, and it stays accelerated even after you graduate. And the more active metabolism, the faster calories are consumed.
- Strength exercises not just burn fat, they replace it with muscle tissue. And hard muscle tissue consumes calories even when the body does not make active actions, i.e. it is at rest. The more muscle tissue in the body, the stronger the energy, the smaller the chance to gain extra pounds.
