Health Tip: Don't Fear Strength Training
Some lifting guidelines

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Strength training helps you build more muscle and burn more fat, but women shouldn't avoid it out of fear of getting bulky.

The American Council on Exercise recommends:

  • If you want to increase strength, opt for heavier weights and fewer repetitions. To build endurance, opt for more repetitions with lighter weights.
  • Keep at it. After a few months, women and men will both see about a 20 percent to 40 percent improvement in strength.
  • Determine your body type, and set your goals accordingly. Don't compare yourself to others, because everyone is different.
  • Concentrate on the way exercise makes you feel, and less on your appearance. Accept your body, and focus on getting stronger, healthier and feeling better.
