How Important Is Strength Training, Really?

How Important Is Strength Training, Really?

Strength training is an integral part of a well-rounded exercise program, and is recommended for both sexes of all ages, including kids and seniors.  Unfortunately, many ignore weight training when devising their exercise plan, thinking they don't want to "bulk up."


But gaining more muscle through resistance exercises has many benefits, from losing excess fat to maintaining healthy bone mass and preventing age-related muscle loss as you age.  The intensity of your resistance training can achieve a number of beneficial changes on the molecular, enzymatic, hormonal, and chemical level in your body, which will also help slow down (and many cases stop) many of the diseases caused by a sedentary lifestyle.


Therefore it's also an essential element if you want to prevent common diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, or weakening of your bones (osteoporosis), limited range of motion, aches and pains.


While it's never too late to start exercising, the earlier you begin and the more consistent you are, the greater your long-term rewards. Having an active lifestyle is really an investment in your future well-being. Interestingly, strength training has been found to have a beneficial impact on your gene expression — not only slowing aging but actually returning gene expression to youthful levels in seniors who start using resistance training. 

With the information age that we live in, it’s hard not to get confused by the countless conflicting answers and opinions on what way is really the best way to get real (and lasting) results.
