There has always been misconception that weight lifting can cause harm to our bodies and that it is exclusive to men. However, contrary to this belief, there are numerous benefits to weight or resistance training. Above all, it is for everyone and it is NOT gender specific. One thing I constantly repeat to clients is: “It’s never too late to start!”
No, you will not build enormous amount of lean muscle tissue in a week, month or even a year, so you’re safe for now!
As long as you follow a well structured strength program, learn and apply the correct techniques and move with intention, good things will start to happen. Therefore, good levels of strength training is advisable to be completed before you move into activities such as running, HIIT classes and team sports. This is to help you battle wear and tear caused by these activities and prevent injuries from occurring.
