So, why does strength training feature on top of their list?
Over the years, strength training has become a preferred medium to reduce body fat, build lean muscle mass, and burn calories! It’s important to understand that lean muscle mass decreases with age. Yes, as your body fat percentage increases over time, if you do not take steps to replace the lean muscle, you will lose it all. That’s where strength training can help you preserve your muscle mass.
Here are some reasons why strength training works:
1. Helps develop strong bones
When you practice strength training regularly, your bone density increases, and the risk of osteoporosis goes down.
2. Helps with weight loss
If you are looking to lose weight, make sure strength training is a part of your fitness regime. Not only does it help you burn a ton of calories, it will also rev up your metabolism levels, which means you can stay fit in the long run!
3. Enhances the quality of life
Strength training may enhance your quality of life and improve your ability to do everyday activities. What’s more, it can also help protect your joints from injury, and enhance your balance, especially during old age.
4. Helps manage chronic conditions
Strength training also helps reduce the signs and symptoms of many chronic conditions, such as arthritis, back pain, obesity, heart disease, depression, and diabetes.
So ladies, practice strength training regularly to see magnificent results!
