6 Reasons Women Should Lift Weights

6 Reasons Women Should Lift Weights | Power :: Endurance :: Fitness | Scoop.it

Eat clean and lift heavy.

 

If there’s one constant thing we say across Nerd Fitness, it’s that if you want to lose weight, gain muscle, or just look better than ever for an upcoming event, the one thing you must absolutely do is eat clean and lift heavy.

Today that changes.
