Benefits of Strength Training

Strength training and building strong muscles can help an individual lose weight. Exercising in general is a great way to burn calories and improve fitness levels but, muscle tissue can burn as many as 15 times more calories per day than fat tissue, including during rest.

Building strong muscles can also help protect an individual’s joints, especially the back. when the muscles are stronger, the body places less pressure on the joints and connective tissue during physical activities, including exerting activities such as weight lifting. Building strong muscles to relieve strain on the joints is also essential for preventing and/or treating arthritis. Also, building stronger muscles can help improve an individual’s posture.

Strength training and building stronger muscles is also healthy for the heart. Muscle tissue is able to perform with less amounts of oxygen, in other words, the heart doesn’t need to pump harder when being active. Additionally, building strong muscles can be good for managing blood pressure. 

Strength training can greatly benefit individuals as they age, helping to prevent injury or certain conditions. As we age, the body undergoes natural physical changes, such as degeneration of the joints, causing the development of certain health conditions, such as a degeneration of the spine or arthritis.

Building strong muscles through strength training is essential towards maintaining overall health, fitness, and wellness. 

By learning how to participate in strength training workouts, a majority of individuals can ultimately benefit from their body’s natural functions in order to prevent, improve, and maintain, their ideal fitness goals.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Strength training is a type of exercise which specializes in resistance training to build muscle strength and size as well as increase endurance. Besides building strong muscles, strength training offers several other benefits for both men and women, and especially for people above the age of 50. For individuals seeking to improve their overall health, fitness, and wellness, strengthening their muscles should be a top priority.
