Intense strength training not only burns calories during exercise. It also increases your calorie burn over the next few days.
All-round body strength
Weight training is equally good when it comes to strengthening your muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments. If done intensively it also helps prevent fractures by building new bone and preserving bone density. This makes your whole body stronger and more resilient. If you lift weights on a regular basis you’ll also find everyday activities such as carrying heavy shopping bags or removal boxes easier.
Fountain of youth
As you age, your muscles reduce in size and get weaker. Systematic strength training helps retain muscle mass and can slow the ageing process. It’s also a great way of preventing cardiovascular disease, strokes and diabetes.
Weights make you smarter and happier
Strength training increases alertness and improves long and short-term memory. And because it stimulates the body to produce “happiness” hormones, it also helps combat stress and anxiety, making you calmer, more satisfied, and more resistant to stress.
The more you do for your health, the more you get back.
