Non practicing women’s relation to Resistance training : About Knowledge, Prejudices, Employer encouragement and Man smell (English)
Abstract [en]

In this study it has been investigated what is missing in non-strength training women to begin exercise regular strength training. It has also examined the level of knowledge about the health benefits and the employer's encouragement to maintain good health. The study was designed in a qualitative methodology and data collection was designed in form of semi-structured interviews. Six women were interviewed between the ages 22-51år. The results showed that women possessed a very low level of knowledge about strength training and also fears and prejudices existed among them. It also showed that the employers encouraging to them to be concerned about his health did not exist beyond that some of them had access to health care contributions. The results also showed that few of them were interested to start strength training as a preventive measure, but only on their backs would be too bad or a strong weight gain would occur.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studie har det undersökts vad som saknas hos icke-styrketränande kvinnor för att de ska börja med regelbunden styrketräning. Det har även undersökt hur kunskapsnivån kring hälsofrämjande effekter och arbetsgivarens uppmuntran sett ut. Studien utformades efter kvalitativ metod och datainsamlingen skedde i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Sex kvinnor intervjuades i åldrarna 22-51år. Resultaten visade att kvinnorna besatt en väldigt låg grad av kunskap kring styrketräning och att tydliga rädslor och fördomar fanns bland dem. Det framgick även att arbetsgivarnas uppmuntran till att de skulle vara måna om sin hälsa inte existerade utöver att några av dem hade tillgång till friskvårdsbidrag. I resultaten visades även att få av dem var intresserade att börja styrketräna i förebyggande syfte utan endast om deras ryggar skulle bli för dåliga eller en kraftig viktuppgång skulle ske.
