Why is there so much fear of using weights in training? There are a number of "false beliefs" that remain with many of us when the idea of including weights in our workouts is presented. Phrases like "I don't want to get muscular", "cardio is better to lose weight" or "I'm going to injure myself with the weights" are still heard and believed to be true. However, exercise with weights brings great benefits.
1. HELP BURN FAT
People tend to opt for cardio when looking to lose weight, ignoring the benefits that good weight training can bring. Strength exercise combined with a proper diet will create muscle mass. It must be taken into account that muscle mass is the best "fat burner" because the muscle needs energy for its maintenance. Therefore, already at rest there is a consumption of calories. A good combination of both exercises, both cardio and strength, helps us reach our goals sooner.
2. HELP YOU RECOVER AND PROTECT YOU FROM INJURY
Using weight in training improves the strength of tendons, joints and ligaments as well as helping to correct body posture. These benefits avoid and prevent injuries from other types of sports training. In addition, to help you perform better in sport.

It manages to improve our body composition as it helps to tone and increase muscle mass and reduce fat levels. There is a false belief that exercises with weights will give you a body similar to that of a man, but it is totally untrue. In the case of women, our body tends more to tone than to increase muscle, while in men, muscle growth is much easier by having more testosterone (a hormone that facilitates muscle growth). In fact, just as it is more difficult for a woman's body to increase its muscle mass than a man's, it is more difficult for her to lose body fat.
HOW TO START?
At Chic&Love you will find products that will challenge you and make your body work even more with materials such as 1.5kg or 2kg dumbbells or bangles (for both wrists and ankles). Here you will see ideas of exercises for different muscle groups that you could do with this material. As for the elastic bands, they allow you to strengthen the muscles progressively since you can include a more resistant band as you progress. In addition, elastic bands allow you to perform more natural movements. They get muscle activation as you allow them to work in a movement where it is already designed to work. In this link you can find exercise ideas. At Chic&Love we have both fabric and latex bands and 15kg and 25kg resistance bands.
Lose your fear of strength because weight training has a lot of benefits!
