Strength Training Tips for Women
It's an emerging trend... today’s women want to be strong, with lean and athletic physiques.

Once considered a "man's sport," strength training is gaining popularity on the female front. In fact, men can learn a lot from women and the exercise science that has come out recently regarding how important strength training is for women... not just for weight control, but for longevity and even cognitive health.

But, this means more than slaving away at weight machines, day after day.

According to special guest Lou Schuler, certified strength and conditioning specialist and the author of several popular books about diet and strength training, it's easier to burn fat and lose weight when you get OFF the machines.

A few moves can keep your health in check over the holiday season, as well as all year long.

Listen in as Schuler joins Naturally Savvy host, Lisa Davis, to share why strength training is so beneficial for women... not just for their waistlines, but for overall health as well.
