20×20 (20×20.ie) is asking all sections of Irish society to show their stripes and pledge one small action to increase the visibility of women’s sport
Here is my contribution. I’m hoping to see more women lifting weights. The benefits for women are for example:
- Lose body fat. Weight training builds muscle, as lean muscle increases so does metabolism.
- Gain strength without bulking.
- Decrease risk of osteoporosis.
- Reduce risk of injury.
- Improve posture and reduce back pain.
- Enhance mood and reduce stress.
See you at the squat rack! 🙂
