Strength training is an important part of an overall fitness program. Muscle mass naturally diminishes with age so if one don't do anything to replace the lean muscles one loose then the percentage of fat will increased.
Strength training also helps to
· Develop strong bones. By stressing your bones, strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
· Control your weight. As you gain muscle, your body gains a bigger "engine" to burn calories more efficiently - which can result in weight loss. The more toned your muscles, the easier it is to control your weight.
· Reduce your risk of injury. Building muscle helps protect your joints from injury. It also contributes to better balance, which can help you maintain independence as you age.
· Boost your stamina. As you get stronger, you won't fatigue as easily.
Manage chronic conditions. Strength training can reduce the signs and symptoms of many chronic conditions, including arthritis, back pain, depression, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis.
