WHY STRENGTH TRAIN?
Resistance training is defined as any exercise that causes the muscles to contract against an external resistance with the expectation of increases in strength, tone, mass, and or endurance. Sources of resistance can be things like: dumbbells, resistance bands, your own bodyweight, bottles of water, or any object that causes your muscles to contract.
The benefits to having stronger muscles are numerous! Not only does this type of training build muscle (which we lose as we age) but it also builds stronger bones which can help prevent serious issues such as osteoporosis. It also helps us with weight management, injury prevention, improved stamina, improved sense of overall wellbeing, improved sleep, improved mobility and balance which can help in fall prevention, and so much more!
