You can build muscle precisely
Balanced strength and endurance training works on all parts of the body, it is not uncommon for personal trainers to put together a program divided into two parts (upper and lower body). When you want to lose fat in a certain part of your body, you have to obey physiological rules.
You have a big belly, but you are starting to lose weight in your face despite the effort you make while exercising your abdominal muscles. Muscle training is more linear – grow the ones you use. And vice versa: you tend to lose what you use.
The best medicine for bones? Weight…
As we age, bones lose density. If the dietary supplement calcium and vitamin D becomes irreplaceable at some point, you can act preventively in the prevention of osteoporosis from a young age by working on the muscles.
In fact, weight training your limbs (think kettlebell squats) helps your bones maintain their density, become stronger and more durable over time.
Exercise with weights reactivates and accelerates the metabolism
- A particularly active metabolism will allow you to burn more calories and more fat.
- It has been scientifically proven that weight training allows you to burn more calories due to the growth of muscle mass. The effects also spread in the hours after physical exertion.
- If you can’t lose fat with regular aerobic activity, you need bodyweight training.
Weight training allows you to do more sports
The beauty of physical training is that it gives you strength and motivation to do more. It is certainly no coincidence that training in the gym is part of the athletic training of sports such as football, tennis, basketball, swimming and so on.
Because? Because strengthening muscles and bones can lead to better results in other disciplines. So if you play football with friends or dance, after some time you will feel the positive effect of strength training: more breath, endurance, muscle strength, agility and power.
Your daily routine will improve and you will have more energy
Strength training will release your energy and allow you to better organize your daily routine. How? Simple: with sleep. Sleep is the most powerful tool we have at our disposal to “rejuvenate” our bodies.
And as part of a training cycle, the body uses sleep to repair muscles, restore strength, and restore available energy. Those who stick to a strength training program organize their day better, sleep better, wake up more rested, and have more hours and energy to do more.
Improve your immune defenses and protect your body
A sedentary lifestyle is one of the causes of many chronic diseases that affect metabolism. It is necessary to prevent them, because aging increases them. Strength training protects against cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis. Strength training is one of the therapies for restoring weight and muscle mass in cancer patients.
It is an anti-aging factor
Finally, the last but not the least benefit is that due to the combined effect of all the benefits I have listed above, strength training is an anti-aging strategy. Many people think that loss of muscle tone is a result of aging, but the opposite is true: aging is a result of loss of muscle tone.
Working on strength and endurance means ensuring a more active, viable, vitality full of old age. Longevity only makes sense if you can move and be independent in old age.
