    Great list of reasons to strength train. It is insulting and misleading however to show pictures of women holding Barbie weights. Five related articles shown in the side bar and not a single woman is holding more than a 5-pound weight. - 10/14/2014 10:56:49 PM
  • I do not strength train, but after reading this article I am going to start! I am amazed at all the benefits! WOW! - 12/3/2013 10:43:27 AM
  • A sister article with more explicit instructions would be nice. These are all great points, but what counts as strength training? how much, how often?
    I'm confident that my program is giving me the gains I want, but I know too many women that thing heavy lifting is bad. - 12/3/2013 7:23:01 AM
  • Good information. I will push myself to do more strength training! - 9/17/2013 10:17:15 AM
    I have been strength-training at least five days a week for several months now, and have noticed a real difference. My arms have better tone, and I've done so many squats and lunges that my thighs and hips are much stronger. However, strength training will NOT get rid of the "batwings" any more than crunches will give you a six-pack. Those "wings" are just loose fat, and you have to reduce that, with diet and cardio, before you'll be able to see those triceps you've been toning! - 9/17/2013 1:14:55 AM
  • Great info. I have to start back with my strength training. - 8/8/2013 7:44:14 PM
  • Strength training is more than just "pumping iron" or using dumbbells. Once I realized that, I wholeheartedly embraced it! Don't get me wrong, I do use the weight machines at my Y, but I also take a group class in strength training and have learned many things I can do at home without having to fiddle with machines. - 5/28/2012 1:57:02 PM
  • Awesome article! Started Weights 3 months back and feel 1000x better! At 50, I have re-ignited a love of pumping iron lost since my mid-20's! - 5/21/2012 11:08:43 AM
    Don't understand why women are so afriad of strength training. And why many refuse to up their weights.

    love it and love the fact that this big girl uses weights that younger, guys can't use. Makes my day when I out lift them and no I did not bulk up .

    Why do women think they have to only use wieghts 10lb and under, come on over to the big wieghts.

    Don't really use anything under 20 lb, execpt for shoulders then its 15. - 1/20/2012 12:07:31 PM
  • Thank you for this amazingly informative article. I will think of this article the next time I am thinking of skipping my strength training session! - 1/21/2011 1:53:26 PM
    you got me! Great info and challenge. I'm gonna start strength training in the morning and now am really super motivated to do it! - 1/17/2011 10:08:04 PM
  • thanks for the terrific information. I recently increased my lifting. I have determined it has caused an increase in my appetite. I eat more on those days. I think it would be a good idea to add a tip on how to manage the increase in hunger int your article. - 1/17/2011 8:16:17 PM
    Thank you for a very interesting article with so much information included. I am saving it to my "favorites" file for future reference. I already follow a regular strength training routine (and have done so for years), and experience its healthy benefits on a daily basis. - 1/17/2011 7:33:46 AM
