That’s a direct quote from a friend. I am not the one to give unsolicited advice when someone clearly isn’t interested in my opinion. So I just left it.

But you’ve signed up for my emails, and I take it as an agreement between the two of us that I can preach to you with a clean conscience.

First, lifting weights does way more than build muscle:

  • Strengthens your bones
  • Reduces the risk of falls
  • Improves metabolism
  • Reduces the risk of most chronic illnesses
  • Improves brain health
  • It makes you stronger so you can do more awesome stuff in life
  • Increases life span and the quality of your years

 And second, building muscle is ridiculously hard.

Especially for women. And most men. Trust me, I’ve been trying for 25 years.

Thank you for giving me the permission to rant 🙂
