Many women shy away from weight training.
I have heard all of the reasons. "I don't want to get bulky." "Cardio is better to help me lose weight." "I don't have time." And the list goes on.
The truth is that we ALL need to incorporate strength training into our workouts to increase our metabolism, increase our muscular endurance and decrease our risk of injury.
Here are a few of my favourite bloggers who offer fantastic weight training advice and workout routines for women of all ages and abilities.
In a word, Suzanne is fabulous. She offers straight up weight training tips and motivation all infused with her drive. I love her energy, I love her spirit and I love her passion. She is taking her fitness knowledge to the next level and getting certified as a personal trainer (yay, Suzanne). You are going to want to follow her on Twitter, too.

Melinda's Fitness Blog
I just recently discovered Melinda's blog and so far I am liking what I see. She is also studying to become a personal trainer and offers great workout options for women. This is a new favourite that I am going to keep coming back to for motivation.
One final note...
