Strength Training

Improve your overall health and muscular strength by engaging in regular strength training.

Did you know that there’s a certain type of exercise that offers some of the best health benefits, such as enhanced balance, maintained weight, improved heart health, and strengthened bones and muscles? Studies have shown that strength training can help you get these benefits.

According to the American Heart Association, strength training is a physical activity devised to enhance muscular strength and fitness. It involves exercising specific muscles or muscle groups against external resistance, such as weight machines, free weights, and even your own body weight.

With the benefits offered by strength training, it’s essential that you do it right. Doing it correctly and efficiently ensures that you reap as many health and fitness benefits as you can. The good thing is that there are personal trainers who can help you with strength training. They can guide you to ensure that you perform exercises the right way.

We have a team of personal trainers who can help you achieve your goals, whether you want to strengthen your body for health purposes or for upcoming fitness competitions.

The Goals of Strength Training

Here are the goals of strength training:
Strength training helps you become stronger, hence the name. It allows you to do your tasks, such as playing with your kids and carrying grocery bags, much easier. In addition, it also improves athletic performance in certain sports that require strength, power, and speed. It boosts endurance by preserving lean muscles.

One of the best things about strength training is that it improves your metabolism in different ways. It increases your metabolic rate and allows you to burn more calories. Research also shows that you still have an increased metabolic rate up until 72 hours after you engage in strength training, so you still burn calories days after working out.

The fat around the abdomen is associated with the increased risks of different health conditions, such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer, developing. With strength training, you can reduce your abdominal fat as well as your total body fat, according to studies.
As you lose body fat and gain more muscles, you appear leaner. The reason for that is muscles are denser compared to fat, meaning they take up less space. By losing body fat, your body showcases more muscle definition, which creates a leaner and stronger appearance.
When you engage in strength training, you become better at supporting your body. One study even showed that there’s a 34% reduction in falls among adults who participated in resistance training and well-rounded exercises. Some of the best types of strength training to improve balance are weight training and tai chi.

Incorporating strength training into your routine can lower your risk of developing injuries. Besides improving strength, it also improves your range of motion and mobility of your tendons, muscles, and ligaments. These benefits result in having reinforced strength and added protection around major joints, such as knees, hips, and ankles.

Studies have proven that routine strength training helps lower cholesterol levels, improve blood circulation, and manage blood pressure. Research also showed that people experienced cognitive function improvements, specifically in memory and processing speed, after engaging in strength training.
Contrary to what many people know, strength training can improve your mobility and flexibility. Those with weak muscles tend to have a lower range of motion. Strength training is as equally effective as stretching in increasing the range of motion, according to a recent study.
Strength training is essential for bone development. When you lift weights, you expose your bones to temporary stress. It sends a signal to your bone-building cells to rebuild your bones stronger. With stronger bones, you are less likely to develop certain health conditions, such as osteoporosis and fractures.
It isn’t a secret that the body deteriorates as people age. However, you can fight natural aging through strength training. Studies have proven that strength training can improve health-related quality of life, even as you age. One study also showed a correlation between strength training and better physical functioning, mental health, and vitality.
