Strength training is a critical component of fitness. It improves muscle, joint, and bone health, which in turn helps prevent injuries. A strength-training regimen can be done anywhere, from the comfort of your home to the convenience of your local gym.
The first and most obvious benefit of resistance training is its ability to help you maintain or increase muscle mass. Increased muscle mass means your body burns more calories at rest. This can help you lose weight, but it’s also beneficial if you’re looking to keep up your stamina as you get older.
When it comes to building muscle, it’s best to stick to the basics. This means lifting weights, doing compound movements, and doing cardio-based workouts. You can find free weights, barbells, and machines in many gyms, but you can also use a resistance band.
If you’re a runner, strength-training can improve your speed, stamina, and performance. It can also minimize the risk of running-related pain.
The federal government’s exercise guidelines recommend performing a muscle-strengthening workout at least twice a week. Other benefits of strength training include its ability to improve mobility. With increased mobility, you can better do daily tasks like carrying groceries or going for a run.
It’s important to remember that resistance training should be used as a part of a comprehensive fitness plan. It’s not a substitute for aerobic exercises, but it does help you stay fit and healthy. As you age, you may be at risk for osteopenia and sarcopenia, two of the leading causes of early disability.
