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. Keeping your body in motion and exercising regularly is a great way to keep your body young, strong and fit, and incorporating strength and weight training into your routine, has many benefits.
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 lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, helping fight off depression, keeping you mentally sharp, preventing diseases such as osteoporosis, arthritis and chronic pain, and improving heart health.
In a new research study published by Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, they found that lifting weights and doing strength training, even just one day per week, strengthens your most important muscle - your heart. Even if you aren't doing any cardio, strength training and weight lifting can help prevent heart attack, stroke, and heart disease. It can even help prevent death from a cardiovascular event.
