Benefits of Strength Training
There’s a misconception about strength training that its primary function is to grow muscles. Thus, many women shy away from this type of training because they fear getting bulky or too muscular. While building larger muscles can be an attainable strength-training goal, this isn’t the only achievable result. Consistent weightlifting and resistance training can build strength, but it has other benefits as well.
Some of the many strength-training advantages include:
- Increased bone density: Your muscles respond to heavy lifting, which initiates a response in your bones. Strength training can help increase bone density and improve overall bone health.
- Easier weight management: Increased muscle mass leads to increased metabolism, which means calories are burned more efficiently, and calorie deficiency is reached more quickly.
- Improved posture and balance: For older adults or those with balance issues, strength training can improve both balance and coordination.
- Decreased adverse effects of chronic conditions: According to the Mayo Clinic, individuals with chronic conditions, including heart disease, arthritis, depression, diabetes, etc., may find symptom relief and a decrease in adverse effects through strength training.
Should I Do Strength Training Every Day?
Engaging in some physical activity every day is something we recommend. However, the intensity of the workout should be taken into consideration. Additionally, the frequency at which you do strength training truly depends on your goals and the type of exercises you’re doing. Very intense and prolonged strength training every day can cause issues, such as injury and physical and mental exhaustion. Your muscles need sufficient time to rest, so we recommend strength training either a couple of times a week or—if you are trying to bulk up—every other day.
