If you’re struggling to lose weight? Then now might be the time to introduce weights into your life.

Here are 4 reasons why:




















Your metabolism will soar: When you start to age you lose muscle mass. This causes your metabolism to slow down, which means you can start to develop unwanted fat in all the wrong places. “When you do weight-bearing exercises, you start revving up your metabolism and it keeps burning for many hours after your workout,” “That’s because after each strength workout, your muscles need energy to repair their fibers” says Wayne Westcott, PhD, director of fitness research at Quincy College.

  1. You’ll you burn fat
    Muscle tissue is more “active” than fat tissue. So even if you’re sitting on the couch or are stuck at your desk for eight hours a day, the extra muscle mass you develop will burn more calories, helping you keep the weight off.
  2. Your body will get tighter
    While cardio is important and will help melt fat, weights sculpt your body, creating curves and definition right where you want it. They also help fight the effects of gravity, helping you to get rid of those tuckshop arms fat.
  3. You’ll be happier
    Yoga isn’t the only Zen-inducing kind of exercise. Researchers found that people who performed three weight workouts a week for six months significantly improved their scores on measures of anger and overall mood.
