Can You Really Afford to Not Be Strength Training?


strength-training-getting-startedWhat is strength training exercise and why is it so important to our health?

Strength training exercises are those that use resistance of some form…they either involve the use of barbells, dumbbells, machines and or other equipment that work to improve strength and keep your body at its maximum health and overall fitness.

The basic premise of strength training is to make muscles, bones and tendons work harder than they are accustomed to working in our everyday activities.

When we do this, it stimulates the body to increase its strength in order to meet the demands we are placing on it.

Resistance training is another term often used in place of strength training but neither resistance nor strength training should be confused with competitive sports like weightlifting, power-lifting or bodybuilding.

As a bonus, strength training also exhibits anti-aging effects because it stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, a hormone that has actually been shown to reverse the aging process and rejuvenate and renew old worn out cells and tissue.

Because the muscle of both men and women deteriorate at almost every stage of life we must perform strength training exercises to rebuild what we have lost.

Strength training works to reduce signs and symptoms of many diseases and chronic conditions in the following ways:

Arthritis: Helps to reduce pain and stiffness and increase strength and flexibility.

Diabetes: The more muscle tissue you have the lower your risk for diabetes. If you do have diabetes, extra muscle allows for better control of blood sugar.

Osteoporosis: Builds bone density and reduces risk for falls.

Heart Disease: Reduces cardiovascular risk by improving lipid profile (blood fats) and overall heart/lung fitness.

Obesity: Increases metabolism (your bodies engine), which in turn helps burn more calories every minute of every day and night and helps with long-term weight control.

Back pain: So many people suffer from some sort of back pain and could benefit from strength training which strengthens the back and abdominal muscles and reduces stress on the spine.

Not only will strength training work on your physical body, but it is the perfect solution to reduce depression and boost self-confidence as well as self-esteem…in other words, it makes you feel better about yourself and gives you a sense of well-being.

Truth is, no matter what age you are, things can change…you truly do not have to get weaker as you grow older. Proper strength training will help you stay vital, strong and independent throughout your life.

As you work to tone up your muscles, you feel healthier from the inside out and you’ll experience exterior results like a slimmer and firmer tummy, arms, legs and improved posture.

You’ll be a calorie burning machine as the more tones your muscles are the faster your metabolism (your body’s engine) and the more calories you burn.

And, last but not least, when your muscles are toned, you will be able to eat a reasonable quantity of food without worrying about gaining excess fat weight.

Strength-training…it does a body good!
