Women Working Out With Weights in New Orleans for Fat Loss

Have you always wanted to know more about how lifting weights can help you lose fat, but perhaps you weren’t quite sure where to start?new-orleans-healthy-woman

Not a problem! I will be more than happy to assist you with that.

Women working out with weights have a huge fat loss advantage over women who don’t lift weights.

The reason for this is that working out with weights helps give your metabolism a major boost.real_women_lift_weights_Doing just cardiovascular exercise is certainly better than nothing. However, doing both cardio and lifting weights is definitely a winning combination for New Orleans fat loss.

Working out with weights in particular really helps to get rid of fat. This particular type of exercise will transform your body like nothing else can. Many women are reluctant to work out weight weights.

This is because they’re afraid that they’ll develop these huge, bulky muscles and start looking all manly.
However, please rest assured that there is no need to worry about that. When women lift weights, unless they’re lifting extremely heavy weights, they’re definitely not going to get all big and bulky.

Instead, women typically experience fat loss along with nice, sleek muscle tone.


Getting started with a strength training regime may seem a little overwhelming if you’re new to it. However, this is easier than you might think. If you’re a woman that is brand new to working out with weights, I’d suggest starting out with 5 pound plastic neoprene dumbbells. Those aren’t too heavy too be uncomfortable, yet they are heavy enough to give you a good workout.

Once you get comfortable with the 5 pound dumbbells, you may want to gradually progress to using 8 or even 10 pound dumbbells.
This will continue to challenge your muscles which will enable you to continue seeing great results. In addition to using dumbbells,
I’d like to encourage you to do some Full body and core strength training exercises as well. Abdominal crunches, Planks, Push ups, Lunges and Squats are just a few examples of this.

If you are trying to get the most out of your workouts, then I suggest doing full body workouts like we do in my New Orleans Boot Camps.

We like to work each major muscle groups three to five days days a week in Boot Camp to get Maximum Results!

For example, below is a schedule that will allow you to get a full body workout 3 days a week by working all Major muscle groups directly and indirectly.

  • Monday: You might decide to do Upper body strength training with dumbbells with some heavy cardio for the legs.

  • Wednesday: Focus on Lower and Upper body strength Training mixed in with light cardio.

  • Friday: You can focus on Lower body strength training and core/stomach with some added cardio in between

As you can see, we strategically sprinkled in the cardio with each workout so we can give certain muscle groups rest from the strength training but still give the body the benefit of a full body workout because we are still working out those muscle groups with the cardio.

In Closing, once you grasp this concept you will see that it pretty simple to come up with endless combinations of workouts to use for accelerated fat loss.

However, some people rather leave it up to me and my New Orleans boot camps where we do a different workout each day and actually pay you to lose inches and pounds !
