We all love a good conditioning workout! Getting a sweat on and blowing off some steam.
Though a lot of people underestimate strength training and it’s importance!
Below are 5 reasons WHY you should start strength training!
🏋️ Muscle Hypertrophy – also known as muscle growth! The more muscle mass you have, the more efficiently you will burn calories, the better you will look!
🏋️ Increase bone density – By adding a structured strength program to your training you will help prevent significant bone density decreases as age increases. As the working muscles and their tendons pull on the bone attachments it causes mechanical improvements of the bone structure
🏋️ Prevent injury – The stronger you are, the more resilient you will be. Increasing strength and building muscle mass improves stability of joints and makes you less prone to injury during everyday activities.
🏋️ Improves athletic performance – Strong muscles will be better able to produce greater force, generate greater power and sustain for longer durations before fatigue or failure
🏋️ Makes you strong – Being able to lift heavier weights translates directly to day to day life! The ability achieve day to day tasks with greater ease will allow you to function longer without the onset of fatigue.
Also, what better way to show off how alpha you are by lifting heavy things!
