Please describe a good weight training program for women?

Please describe a good weight training program for women?

Multiple muscles: A weight training program for women does not necessarily have to be significantly different than that for men. I favor exercises that work multiple muscle groups rather than isolated muscles - for example, push-ups, rows, lat pull-downs, and exercises using a cable system. In general, these types of workouts will give you more functional benefits. ...Read more

Looking for a weight training program to get stronger with better endurance. Could you suggest any please?

Balance!: Weight training with more repititions will give your both a resistance and cardio workout at the same time, particualrly if you lift for at least thirty minutes. You will also burn more calories, but you will gain less strength for the time put in. This is called circuit weight training. Having a heart rate monitor is good, so you can make sure you are in your "target heart rate.". ...Read more

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting resistance/core/weight training program if diet remains same. Losing wt b4 now gain?

Many variables : Not knowing your current weight, dietary macronutrient ratio, caloric intake, genetics or hormone ratios (very important in a 56 year old). It is common for resistance training to halt weight loss and in many cases to increase weight gain given the effects of resistance training on Insulin sensitivity and muscle development. See a nutritionist, sports physiologist or a sports medicine physician. ...Read more

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting weight training program if diet remains same? Muscle weighs more than fat....

Weighs the same: A pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle. Fat is less dense, takes up more space. As you get leaner, clothes tend to get looser, even at the same weight. Add muscle mass to that and clothes may get snug, e.g. Broader shoulders, bigger biceps. Want weight gain? Will need to increase calories in, and/or decrease calories out. ...Read more

A good gym is less expensive than buying everything at home, and probably safer. Take a few lessons from a personal trainer to learn proper form. Be persistent, watch others, ask questions, stay hydrated. You'll see results! ...Read more
