No weight lifting won’t make you look manly! I’m sure you’ve heard this several times. In fact, what weight lifting will do for you is make your muscles nice and strong giving you stronger bones, leaner muscles and a nice toned body giving you more definition just where you need it.
Weight lifting will aid in body fat reduction and shape your body unlike cardio your body will benefit from the strength. Lifting weights not only makes you look fabulous but it also helps stimulate the brain releasing endorphins which make you happy.
Whilst exercising you will be burning 100s of calories but even after exercise your body still continues to burn even while resting giving you an increase in your BMR.
