What Happens if I Stop Weight Training?
When I was a teenager my mom advised me not to lift weights. She said when you stop lifting weights you get fat, so it’s better not to start. This was before Arnold Schwarzenegger entered politics so I’m not sure where she got this information from. Mom was right, but only somewhat. When you lift weights, your muscles get bigger so you burn more calories. If you stop lifting weights and still eat the same amount of calories, then you will end up with more body fat. Bottom line, don’t be afraid of weight training. The only thing it will do is make you look awesome!
