Weight training is one of the most important elements to losing weight. No matter how old you are, you are responsible. This will help improve their health, balance and strength.
Weight gain is much easier as you grow older especially in motivation to exercise also decreases, but can turn it around, no matter how old you are. You must begin to weave a kind of exercise into your daily life.
One type of exercise you should consider doing is weight training, also known as resistance training or resistance training. Weight training not only helps you lose weight, but also trim and tone your body.

Weight training is an important element in the fight against fat, is perhaps the most important. If you do aerobics only burn fat during exercise, but with weight training to burn fat, even when finished. The body is still burning fat for up to twelve hours after exercise while you are building muscles worked, which may still be burning fat while at rest. But that's not the end of the story.
A body full of muscles use more calories than a body full of fat, so you find you have to eat more to maintain your weight and muscle. You need not worry about it much like a body builder, as composition is not correct to do so, as a woman you only lengthen and define your muscles and strengthen lean muscle.
When starting to weight train you might find that your weight will actually increase. This is because muscle is heavier than fat but muscle is smaller so you must observe the shrinking body, even if the balance is not a decrease in weight.
Additional benefits of weight training are: --
1. Helps strengthen and increase bone density because the act of muscle tension and bending of the bones helps to set the bone fibers.
2. Stronger muscles helps your body to be more constant and thus helps prevent falls.
3. Has also been found that can combat the accumulation of abdominal fat by weight training at least twice a week.
Finally, when weight training to make sure that you change your routine around which the body can not get use to the routine. It only takes the body about six weeks to learn to work effectively if to keep the same routine and therefore fail to see any changes in weight or body.
So have fun and start weight training to lose weight and tone your body.
