A common myth purports that weightlifting is a male domain. In fact, many Olympic and powerlifting exercises are easier for women than for men, and with the appropriate selection of weight, sets and reps, weightlifting can deliver unparalleled benefits:

  • Tone your upper body rapidly without bulking up
  • Increase your endurance
  • Boost your metabolism
  • Lose weight and get stronger while getting smaller

My wife Kerry, for example, holds a PhD in social policy research and works in a research institute in the Bay Area. She follows a simple program of lifting kettlebells 3 days per week for 30-40 minutes and is truly an Iron Maiden
