Here’s why strength training is essential for women.

According to experts, squats help build leg muscles, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calf muscles. “Start by regularly doing weight squats and add additional weights as you progress,” said Sameeran Chetia, certified fitness trainer.

A deadlift workout can also allow you to lift heavy objects off the floor. When done right, it also helps improve body posture. Since it involves all major muscle groups, it is a complete workout.

Chetia suggested that one can incorporate strength training workouts like

* Shoulder press with dumbbells
* Alternating dumbbell rows
* Chest press with dumbbells
*Tricep push up
* Hammer loops
