RESISTANCE training has been around since the dawn of time. Here are the reasons why we all need to do it in a one form or another, whether it be lifting weights or gardening!
It builds lean muscle and increases the metabolism
With a committed lifestyle approach, muscle growth eventually converts into visible muscle tone and definition. Resistance training also stimulates lipolysis (fat breakdown and release) and increases the body’s metabolism long after training is finished. Besides the calories burned during your session, you’ll continue to burn more calories over the course of the day, and if you keep it up, it will do it for the rest of your life.
Muscle is functional
Having more muscle means you’re stronger and fitter, which translates into better functional performance in everyday life, making lifting the kids up or that bag of compost a little easier.
