Top Reasons Why Women Should Do Strength Training and Its Benefits

Strength training is often associated with bodybuilders and other athletes, but I encourage women to take it up as well. As a personal trainer with a decade of experience, I’ve seen the positive impact it has had on my female clients’ lives and their overall quality of life. Strength training goes beyond just building muscle; it offers holistic benefits. In this piece, we will explore why strength training is important for women, how it impacts hormones, how it should be done during the menstrual cycle, and how a trainer can help.

Importance of strength

Strength training is essential for women as it encompasses many physiological and psychological health benefits. Resistance training helps maintain or build bone density, resulting in fewer cases of fractures and osteoporosis. As discovered by Verywell Fit , simple weightlifting positively strengthens bone density; therefore, it should become a regular part of life.

How Does Strength Training Influence Hormone Production Levels?

Strength training positively influences hormone concentration. It helps produce growth hormones and endorphins, which play vital roles in muscle repair, growth, and boosting mood. Although women produce less testosterone than men, strength training can still effectively increase strength and lean muscle mass.

Additionally, strength training helps regulate other hormones like insulin. Increased insulin sensitivity makes managing blood sugar levels easier, reducing the chances of type 2 diabetes. The benefits extend beyond physical health to emotional well-being; exercising, including strength training, helps manage depression and anxiety by stimulating serotonin and dopamine.
