Myth #4: You need to lose weight first and then “tone up”
Many women have exclaimed, “I need to lose fat first and then I’ll start strength training because I don’t want to bulk up.” As a result they devote hours per week to cardio exercises all in the name of fat loss.
Just doing cardio with the goal of building a leaner, stronger, and healthier body is a big mistake.
Not to mention, there are several other amazing benefits to strength training than building a better looking body. Resistance training is excellent for preventing osteoporosis and improving self-confidence, among many other things.
The answer to the “When is the right time to start strength training?” question is today. It is everyday that our body needs a workout.
