Is there anyone who shouldn’t participate in strength training? Short answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Think about it this way — What part of a daily routine that you participate in would not be amplified in a positive manner by being stronger? Could yard work, snow removal, carrying groceries be helped with an increase of strength? Nearly every aspect of life could be impacted positively by being stronger!
People frequently misconstrue strength training as something that it isn’t; an activity people do to get huge and bulky. Not all strength training is bodybuilding and vanity driven but can really be a huge health benefit. Think of some aches or pains you have daily; lower back pain, neck pain or tension, or even foot or ankle pain? Strength training can correct this!
Strength training can be programmed to benefit anyone in a way that can enhance their daily lives and long-term health. It’s more than just looking good and increasing overall strength. It’s proven that strength training can prevent or improve things such as posture, insomnia, controlling or managing blood sugar, heart disease and an endless list of other afflictions humans see daily.
Getting back to the root of why many people head to the gym, strength training impacts fat loss aggressively and inches lost can be noticeable. And think of how being stronger could have helped you today!
