We have it tough, right?

Ladies we have it tough don’t we? Our bodies are wonderful things but as women they have to endure a lot, and after 30 biology is not on our side. 

Research shows that our bone density starts to decline after the age of 30. This can lead to things like osteoporosis and osteopenia, but can also affect our general sporting performance, speed, balance and control. 

The supply of estrogen helps to keep our bones strong, so when estrogen dips as we age, our bone density falls further, especially around menopause. 

💪🏼🏋🏼‍♀️ Resistance training is a proven method to help mitigate the reduction in bone density, and protect us against muscle loss.

So if you’re not already, then around your thirties is a brilliant time to start doing resistance training to benefit your long term health. 

Not only that but resistance training also helps keep weight off by building muscle and increasing our metabolic rate. I.e. the rate at which we metabolise calories (food!) 

I’m not saying you have to pump iron for resistance training (although it’s advantageous), there are many ways to build resistance work into your weekly training routine. 

Training Tips

  • 💪🏼I recommend 2-3 strength based workouts per week.
  • 💪🏼Remember to be patient as it takes time to see progression.
  • 💪🏼Consistency wins over perfection and pbs!
  • 💪🏼Remember also your training will be greatly affected by your menstrual cycle
