Weight Training Perks

Strength: Stronger muscles give you better joint support and lower your risk of injury.

Appearance: Weight training will help improve your appearance. Depending on your goals, you can tone up, add mass, or work on shaping specific areas of your body.

Weight Loss: When you add muscle to your body, you increase your metabolism, causing you to burn more calories and lose weight faster.

Bone & Muscle Health: After age 30, people begin to lose bone mass and muscle tissue. Studies have proven that weight training significantly slows bone and muscle loss and can help prevent osteoporosis.

Energy: Like all kinds of exercise, weight training will make you feel more energetic and can reduce symptoms of stress and depression.

To get the benefits of your workouts, you must:

  1. Exercise Regularly: To get the full benefits of weight training, you must work out at least 2-3 times a week.
  2. Rotate muscle group: To give your muscles time to rest and heal between workouts, avoid working out the same muscles two days in a row. Instead work different muscle groups on different days.
  3. Vary your routine: Don’t always use the same exact exercise to target each muscle. Instead, vary your routine; working the same muscle in different ways and different angles will help you progress faster
