You’ve probably heard the concept being used very often in the past year and closely related to diet-opposers and groups such as HAES (Health At Every Size) that’s a trademark of an hypothesis started within the Fat Acceptance movement and promoted by the Association for Size Diversity and Health.
This post will be part of a Strength Training sequence that aims at introducing and encouraging women to lose the fear to the heavy weights in the gym and build a strong foundation for their body to function in diverse situations. I have personally been asked on tips and guidance for beginners by women that want to give strength training a try and see results, hence I will take this post to draw an introduction or guide into strength training, its basics and how to start making a change by yourself without the need of expensive coaching. Please remember to check with your doctor your own conditions before lifting, pregnancy, etc. This post is merely informative and not claiming to be of official guidance.
