A guest post from GBG Health:
By choosing to do a resistance training program, you will be doing a workout
that will provide you many more benefits than are found in other programs. Your health with resistance training programs is greatly enhanced.
Physical fitness can come from many different forms of exercise including
aerobics, treadmills, and also by adding a strength building routine. As you
continue reading, you will see our discussion of some of the
resistance training can offer.
Not too long ago, most of the people attending the local gym were younger
people that were working out trying to get buff. It is now well known that
resistance training offers many health benefits including strengthening your
bones as you get older. Your body, starting in your 30s or 40s, begins to lose
bone mass throughout your skeletal system. To keep the weight off, you’re going
to have to exercise more and eat less compensate for your metabolism slowing
down. The solution is to do resistance training on a regular basis which will
help to increase your metabolism and make your bones more dense.
To get the maximum benefit out of any fitness routine that you do it must
incorporate many different elements. Creating a balanced routine can only be
done by incorporating aerobic exercise, proper dieting, and a resistance
workout. By combining half an hour of weight training with half an hour of
aerobic activity, you will have a balanced exercise routine. Dieting is
essential, especially when you are trying to build muscle mass and lose weight
at the same time.
Many women are afraid that they will gain too much muscle mass if they begin
a resistance training program. Building muscle mass using heavyweights and
supplements is something either sex should only perform sporadically if you only want to maintain your
current weight. Without significant intensity, long duration, and copious
supplementation, a female who incorporates resistance training does not have to
worry about building large “manly muscles”. To help postmenopausal
women retain and build bone mass, it is recommended that they do resistance
workouts. To fight the possibility of getting osteoporosis, resistance training
should be done by all middle-aged women.
The benefits of doing resistance training are numerous and should motivate
anyone to begin this type of routine as soon as they can. The belief that
resistance training will make you slow, clumsy, or unattractive are not relevant
especially in regard to the benefits that it can provide. The next thing you
need to do is begin your own resistance training program to make yourself
healthier and stronger.
