16 Reasons Why You Need To Start Strength Training Excercise

It has been proven that strength training for less than one hour every week could reduce heart attack or stroke risk by up to 70%, and just about 2-3 sets of bench presses which takes less than 10 minutes to complete, could be very effective. Having said that, below are 16 reasons why you need to start Strength training as soon as possible.

  1. Building Muscles Weightlifting can help build muscle fast. It also helps in keeping the body in shape.

  2. Increases Productivity This may sound funny but a study shows that squeezing in a quick workout may help you stay focused throughout the day.

3. It Reduces Risk Of Cancer Research shows that visceral fat cells produce high levels of a cancer-triggering protein called fibroblast growth factor-2. Resistance training helps convert the Visceral fat cells to muscle thereby reducing the risk of Cancer.

4. Risk Of Getting Injured Is Reduced Studies show that resistance training can lead to stronger ligaments and tendons. This means you will be less prone to tears or other injuries in everyday activities.

5. Lower Abdominal Fat From personal experience, before I started weightlifting, I had to undergo a series of popular home workout sessions just to reduce abdominal fat. But ones I started strength building it proved to be more effective at preventing increases in abdominal fat than cardiovascular exercise.

6. Get Stronger Bones Strength building helps to toughen up bones, which in turn reduces the risk for fractures in the body.

7. Improves Brain Power It is said that any exercise will keep your brain healthy, but researchers found that weightlifting helps improve cognitive functioning in older adults.

8. Reduce Depression Symptoms Strength building can release feel-good endorphins. Endorphins help to reduce symptoms of clinical depression and anxiety. When you are working out, nothing else seems to matter than getting into that perfect shape.

9. Improves Mental Health Studies from Harvard Medical School shows that Strength training provides an opportunity to overcome obstacles in a controlled, predictable environment, thereby increasing mental resiliency.

10. Look And Feel Better Weightlifting is the fastest and most effective way to get a lean, toned, fit body for both men and women. Before I started weightlifting, I didn't feel comfortable exposing my upper body outside.

11. Boost Self-esteem Strength training can help improve a person's perceived body image. Weightlifting and a healthy diet will result in a fit body, which is what most people want for their body.

12. Reduce Heart Disease Weightlifting has cardiovascular abilities capable of protecting us from potentially harmful heart disease.

13. Improve Sleep A good night rest helps improve productivity in activities. Researches suggest that weightlifting, in particular, can lead to a better night's sleep.

14. Controls Blood Sugar Levels Researchers of a study report that strength building encourages the growth of white muscle, which aids in lowering blood glucose because the process utilizes glucose for energy.

15. Control Blood Pressure Regular exercise, including moderate weightlifting exercise, provides many health benefits, including helping to lower blood pressure in the long term.

16. Prevents Back Pain Weightlifting may help strengthen the muscles of your core (muscles that support your spine) and reduce back pain.

Having seen the benefits of strength building to the body, it is only practical that you startup something little. You do not need to dive all in as a beginner. Also, ensure you eat right and train your entire body if you decide to start strength training. This does not only ensure balance in strength and coordination but also brings the body to perfect shape. That is, not having a broad upper body with little (chicken) legs.
