Strength training provides women with many benefits. Increases in bone mass, muscular strength, metabolic rate and weight loss are common results of a well-designed training program. Many women avoid this form of activity because they believe it causes them to "bulk up." However, a vast majority of women can't build large muscles because they don't have the genetic inclination to do so. There is a small percentage of women, however, that can gain noticeable amounts of muscle size. Don't let this keep you from giving strength training a try. The benefits greatly outweigh the risks. Your strength training routine doesn't have to be complex or time consuming. It can easily fit into your lifestyle. Free weights, strength training machines, rubber tubing or your own bodyweight can be used to enhance muscular strength and endurance with as little as 30 minutes of training per day. You can achieve these benefits by using relatively light weights and performing 12 to 20 repetitions of five to 10 strength exercises.
