    For losing body fat we are trying almost every precaution but most of the times getting failure so apart from only physical exercise we should learn some of the tricks to reduce our body fats such as physical workouts including weight lifting and diet plans including lots of water and lemon juice with fruits and green vegetables.

    Its an all around win-win situation when you lift.
    You know what? I never really thought of lifting that way! I know the increase in bone density wouldn't be a whole lot, but it is better than nothing! I am only 5'1 and definately would love to prevent myself from being a hunched back lady. I actually really LOVE lifting!! Ever since I was able to lift again (after foot surgery), I have been benching, squatting, and basically just lifting way more than I ever had. I used to do weights before but I never went heavy because of what all girls think: "lift heavy= look like a man or get too buff." I used to just do light reps thinking like it would do something, but it just made me stay where I was. Now that I do heavier weights, I noticed that I burn fat much quicker and I am more toned than ever!

    Come on ladies!! Don't be afraid to lift!

    This is a great thread. I love lifting as well, and it's great to be here where there are other women who live lifting too, and guys who encourage us to do just that! (Other sites are more....stone age? LOL! ) I have a lot of muscle definition on my arms especially anyway, because of my job, but it doesn't bother me. I also have hunched shoulders (a lifetime of bad posture!) and lifting (especially chin-ups) is really helping to straighten that out. I feel healthier than I've ever done, and lifting also makes my job easier. So, all round, it's a good thing!

    Hmmm...I wonder if we can get T-shirts made 'Ladies for Lifting (We Can Do It Too!)'?

    Lifting 85% of your maximum ability for eight reps burns about twice as many calories in two hours. As you build stamina, reduce the rest period between exercises to increase calorie burn.

    I agree, mixing strength training with a bit of cardio is a good mix.
