  • I love this article! Very informative and truthful!! I have been lifting for 3 years now and all you say above is so true! It’s a work in progress but, IMO it’s the best approach to build muscle and lose fat. It helps with bone density like you mentioned, so when we get older we won’t have as many problems. More ladies need to stop being afraid of strength training! Thank you for this!
