The “Goods” about Strength Training

Its “Good” Friday, why not be “Good” to your body?  Below are some very important reasons why strength training makes a “GOOD” difference in your quality of life:

 

Regular Strength Training:

Improves your ability to do everyday activities: The stronger your muscles, the easier it is to get groceries out of the car, get a package off of the top cabinet shelf, push the lawnmower, etc.

 

Improves your balance and stability: The stronger and more resilient your muscles, the more studier your balance. This will help keep you safe in daily activities as well as decrease the risk of injuries from falls.

 

Builds muscle strength: Adults lose between five and seven pounds of muscle every decade after the age of 20. Strength training helps prevent loss, and aids in rebuilding what you may have already lost.

 

Decreases your risk of osteoporosis: Inactivity and aging can lead to a decrease in bone density, leading to brittle bones, so brittle that even a cough could cause a fracture. Regular strength training can increase bone density and help prevent osteoporosis.

 

Reduces blood pressure: Strength training can be beneficial for the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure by strengthening the heart, allowing it to beat more proficiently.

 

Increases caloric burn: Strength training increases the body’s metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories throughout the day.  The more muscle you have the more fat you burn!
