  • Strength training makes me feel good!
  • I'm going to give this a try
  • Been going to gym for 2 weeks now feeling better already
    Just joined a new gym and got a personal trainer and work out few times a week
  • Strength training has increased my endurance and has made me look more fit in my clothes as well.
  • excellant pointers and places for a newbie to start at.
  • Great article. It's so important for women! I need to do more of this!
  • This article is a must read for people........I enjoyed it so much. I LOVE my group power weight lifting classes. The owner of the gym I go to called me the group power junky as I go as often as I can.....usually 3 times a week. I also hit the weight machines 2 times a week on top of that. I just want to build serious muscles. I have noticed that it has helped my arthritis be less painful and I like that. I love the sore feeling I get from working out. I would recommend strength training for anyone who has their doctors ok. Just find a level that works for your health and fitness desires.
    I have noticed it is especially good for my posture. I feel it has helped keep me from getting a thick middle and rounded shoulders that middle aged women can sometimes get.

    The reason I don't like doing it is because my mind can't wander. Needs all of my attention. I was doing 30 min. 2x per week but was not getting it done. I have switched to 10 min. a day. Hoping this will help get it done.
  • I am one of those who actually wishes he COULD lift weights, but the doctor has said I shouldn't.
  • I am considering this. Have not every worked with weights before.
  • Yes, yes and YES! Nothing has changed my body like strength training has even though my weight hasn't changed for over two years. Trust me, there's nothing to be afraid of with strength training--your body will thank you!
  • What are your recommendations for people with hip issues that deal with pain and it increases with strength/weight training? I have hip dysplasia, just recently had surgery, and I am still in the recovery process. I want to do strength training again, but I want to avoid the "pain". I do know the difference in soreness and pain. I love soreness. Hate pain.

    That one about "I'm afraid of bulking up" always makes me smile. If people knew how much work it can take some of us just to achieve some attractive muscle definition, they'd stop worrying about turning into The Hulk.
