Benefits of Strength Training

By Donna Stark

You make sure to stay on top of your cardiovascular exercises by going for a jog every morning and taking an evening walk after your dinners, but are you staying on top of your strength training exercises as well? If not, you may want to consider making some changes to your daily fitness routine! By simply adding a couple of strength training sessions to your workouts each week, you can reduce the risk of fractures, sprains, strains, muscle loss, osteoporosis, back pain, and arthritis.

Benefits of Strength Training

The conditions listed above are not only associated with pain but can also limit your mobility and daily function, which can have a huge impact on how well you can take care of yourself. If you want to improve your overall well-being and live more independently, strength training is a must! Here's how it can make such a huge difference in your life.

  • Offsets the natural decline in muscle mass as you age
  • Increases bone density
  • Improves cognitive function (problem-solving, decision-making, and critical thinking)
  • Improves balance, coordination, and posture
  • Restores mobility
  • Reduces the risk of falling
  • Increases metabolism to burn calories more efficiently
  • Reduces body fat
  • Reduces the symptoms of many chronic conditions

Simplicity of Strength Training

Don't over complicate the process of gaining strength. Sure, it is always nice to take advantage of the different machines and weights at your local gym, but they aren't always needed. If you are working out at home, use what you can find! Take a walk around your house and look for weighted items, such as detergent bottles, gallons of milk, or canned items in your pantry. You can also stick with resistance bands and even your own weight! That's right. Lunges, squats, planks, and push-ups, as well as household chores, yard work, and stair climbing will all help you build your strength.

Getting Stronger With Each Passing Day

Stronger muscles will definitely help create stronger bones, but that's not all! Strength training can also help boost your confidence, encourage you to keep active, and deepen your connections with others. You can't go wrong by incorporating a few sessions into your week, so don't delay! Give your body the gift of strength and start looking forward to healthier days ahead! You won't regret it. And if you need some guidance on where to start, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. They are more than happy to help!
