If you want a lean, toned profile, there’s one thing you should not forget about – strength training. Not every woman wants sculpted arms, but strength training offers a much broader range of benefits.
As we age, we all naturally lose muscle mass, and this holds true for women as well as men. One result of this process is that your metabolism often becomes slower over time. .This can increasing your chances of gaining bulk weight and fat. Weight training can help stop and even reverse this loss of muscle mass, helping you to keep your metabolism running at the pace of those much younger than you!
A major benefit of weight training is the strengthening of bone tissue. Strength training is actively linked to improved bone density, helping to reduce a number of risks such as fractures and osteoporosis. Strength training can even offer better bone density along your spinal cord, which provides more protection for your nervous system.
Burn More Calories
Likewise, strength training is a great way to burn calories. Even after you’ve completed your strength exercises, your body will continue to burn calories, something many professions call physiologic homework. Aside from an increased metabolism (up to 15 percent faster), muscles simply require more fat to build and maintain. This makes such exercises an excellent way to stay slim or start a weight loss plan.
Become Leaner And More Powerful
When you want a lean body, it’s instinctive to turn to cardio exercises, but these offer a very slow process. Strength training, however, burns more calories thanks to your improved metabolism. The effect offers the desired lean results on a much faster scale. As an added bonus, it also supports your internal health thanks to the added bone and muscular strength.
When you weight train, you are focused on achieving a goal. And anytime you put your focus on achieving a goal, the more motivated you become. Strenth training helps you to reduce stress while focusing on a goal, helping your overall mindset to become more positive!
More than just getting toned, strength training can help improve your muscles, internal system, and mental attitude. It is a great way to support and enhance your overall health and makes strength training an excellent addition to anyone’s fitness plan.
