In the last decade empower women is one of the strongest movements taking over India. And it is Be Fitastic™ 's vision to get that same energy and zeal into bringing fitness to women.
Research proves that strength training exercises are both safe and effective for women of all ages, including those who are suffering from arthritis, osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes, back pain, depression etc. and not in perfect health. In fact, people with health concerns often benefit the most from an exercise program that includes lifting weights a few times each week and also give a positive impact on your mental and emotional health.
Few myths and fiction about women’s fitness which we would like to call out and bust are:
Lifting heavy weights does not make you bulky, your muscles get stronger and not bigger. If you lift heavy and eat caloric deficit healthy diet, your muscles will get stronger and denser and you will burn fat
We all have fat pads in our body and we are genetically predisposed to store fat in these areas. Doing side bends and countless sit ups will not make fat disappear from your sides and stomach.
Hours of cardio will definitely make you use calories and lose weight, but strength training provides a more efficient weight loss effect than an equal amount of cardio. Your body’s metabolic rate is kept high even After a strenuous strength training session as its rebuilding all the broken down muscle – translating into a higher metabolic rate throughout the day.
Irrespective of what you might have heard of the fad diets, fancy gadgets, and hours of fitness DVD’s; in our experience one program may not be suitable for all as we all have unique bodies.
It’s a known myth that women should do higher reps and lower loads as compared to men. Male and female endocrinology is different and no matter how heavy a women lifts, she wont get bigger. She will only get a dense, tight, and lean look
Studies have shown that in post-menopausal women, strength training aides in preserving bone density and at the same time improves muscle mass, strength, and balance. In short giving an anti-ageing boost to your body.
