A well rounded workout routine, one that includes strength training, will help prevent the onset of many health issues including osteoporosis, stroke and heart disease. Often when people hear the term strength training they think only of lifting weights; however, there are a number of ways to perform strength exercises without weights; for instance, the use of resistance bands or your own body weight.
Incorporating strength exercises into your workout will help increase your overall strength as well as your muscular endurance. Additional benefits include stronger bones, increased flexibility, better stamina and improved circulation.
Strength training is a necessary part of any well rounded workout routine. Keep in mind that as you age you begin to lose bone density which is typically much harder to improve or maintain the longer it is overlooked. The best time to start strength training is now!
