Exercising regularly can keep your heart, body and mind healthy. Exercise can also increase endorphins, which are what keep you happy. Breaking a sweat is the best way to keep your metabolism in check, and keep any excess weight off. While keeping your body in motion and exercising regularly is a great way to keep your body young, strong and fit, incorporating strength and weight training into your routine can also help you lose weight and fight aging naturally.
Strength training and weight lifting is important for you physically because gaining muscle helps you burn calories and fight fat, keeps your bones and joints strong, and can help prevent injuries. Lifting weights can actually help you burn more calories than doing a cardio workout. Strength training can also help keep you young by improving heart health, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, helping fight off depression and keeping you mentally sharp, and preventing diseases such as osteoporosis, arthritis and chronic pain.
A few basic strength training exercises to try out include squats, push-ups, lunges, planks, and dead lifts. Adding these five exercises into your regular fitness routine will give you a full body strength workout, keeping you looking and feeling great!
