Women should lift
1. Build strong bones.It's been well documented that women need to do weight-bearing exercise to build and maintain bone mass, and prevent osteoporosis. Just as muscles get stronger and bigger with use, so do bones when they're made to bear weight. Stronger bones and increased muscle mass also lead to better flexibility and balance, which is especially important for women as they age
2. Reduce injuries and arthritis.Weight lifting improves joint stability and builds stronger ligaments and tendons.
