Despite its reputation as a “jock thing,” strength training should in fact be a necessary component of everyone’s fitness routine. There are several benefits to strength or weight training and when combined with other components of a complete fitness program, these benefits are even more profound.

With the proper program, you will find that you

  • Build lean muscle
  • Lower body fat
  • Develop strong bones
  • Reduce the risk of injury
  • Boost energy and stamina
  • Sharpen mental focus
  • Lose weight

What Is Strength Training

Strength training is a series of exercises that use varying forms of resistance to boost power and in some cases, enhance size in different muscles in the body. While many people think that free weights and weight machines are the only elements used to build muscle, there are actually other means of improving your overall strength and power. For example, your own body weight can provide the resistance needed to build muscle and burn fat. Resistance tubes are also effective.

Why It Is Important

Strength training is very important because as muscle mass diminishes naturally with age, the percentage of fat in your body rises. No matter what your age or your fitness level, strength training can help you enhance and preserve the body’s muscles.
