There’s no denying that muscle building is the fastest way to burn calories and stay in shape. Resistance training will help to boost your metabolism, build lean muscle and increase joint stability. If you have not yet seen results from your cardio fitness workout, it is worth combining your cardio exercise with some resistance training. The best part is, you don’t even need to spend all your time at the gym – there are plenty of exercises you can do with resistance bands and free weights in the comfort of your own home.

Muscle Mass

is a well-known fact that muscle mass reduces as the age increase. The best way to counter this loss is muscle and strength building. The fat percentage increases with your age, and if it is allowed to increase, you start losing muscle mass. Strength training supports preserving and improving muscle mass.

Weight Loss

Strength training is a great way to burn the calories and achieve healthy weight loss while building lean muscle. The calories burned during resistance training may not be as much as a cardio workout but you will continue to burn calories after you stop working out. You will burn more calories in the 24 hours after resistance training than a cardio workout.

Reduces risk of injury

Strength training can help improve balance and coordination. Strength building not only strengthens your muscles, but it also protects your muscles and joints from damages to potential injuries. 

Helps to prevent Osteoporosis

Women are more likely to experience lower bone density and a rapid decrease in muscle mass, which means there is a higher risk of suffering from Osteoporosis. Strength building helps in slowing down of bone corrosion and weakening. These exercises not only make your bones stronger and maintain bone density, but it also slows the effect of Osteoporosis.

When it comes to strength building, start slowly and increase the weights or resistance gradually.
