Here are 5 benefits to including strength training in your fitness repertoire:
- Boost your metabolic rate. Optimizing your metabolic rate helps you efficiently use calories to maintain muscle mass, and it helps you lose weight more quickly.
- Reduce the risk of injury. Building muscle also happens to strengthen ligaments, bones,
and tendons. By doing so you can reduce the risk of sustaining injuries.
- Strength training is versatile. You don’t have to go to the gym to build muscle! Bodyweight exercises, dumbbells, kettleballs, and resistance bands can all easily be used at home to aid strength training.
- Enhance your shape. Toning your body is really defining your muscles.
- Improve your health. Weight training can have a major impact on overall health. It can improve cardiovascular functions to reduce the risk of certain diseases and can improve your overall well-being.
Of course, no one exercise regimen is right for every person – just like nutrition, your body is unique and has its own needs – and you should listen to how your body feels during and after working out to determine the best fitness routine.
