Benefits Of Strength Training

Benefits Of Strength Training

Benefits Of Strength TrainingStill on the fence about whether or not weight training is for you?

Cardio is a fun workout, but just doing cardio causes you to miss out on your body's other muscular needs. Over time, your body gets used to the same routine and will burn fewer calories. Your metabolism will also not be as high as it could be. Adding strength training to your workout routine can have major benefits.

Easier Daily Tasks

In everyday life, you will find yourself needing extra strength from time to time. Tasks such as moving furniture, lifting boxes onto a shelf, or picking up your child over and over again. Developing this strength will allow you to live an easier and safer life.

Metabolism Boost

Strength training causes the body to build lean muscle. The more lean muscle we have, the higher our metabolism gets.  The result: We burn fat faster even while we’re asleep!

Better Fitting Clothes

Strength training is one of the best types of exercise for toning muscles and losing weight. Studies suggest that weight training may burn solely body fat, whereas those who only dieted ended up losing both body fat and muscle. This results in a lower number on the scale and more inches lost.

Lower Stress Levels

Breaking a sweat has multiple ways of improving your overall mental health. Studies show it lowers levels of stress hormones in your body, improves feel-good hormones and helps keep your blood pressure in check.

Stronger Bones

Weight training isn’t only building new muscle, it’s also beefing up your bones, which becomes increasingly important as you age. Studies show that using weights can increase bone mass as well as elevate blood levels of osteocalcin, a marker of bone growth.

How many times do you weight train during the week?
