Long Term Benefits of Strength Training
There are so many benefits to strength training. Whether you need to lose 50 pounds or that last 5 pounds, this is the most effective way to get rid of that unwanted fat and build muscle! Strength training has also been shown to help stop the reduction of skeletal muscles that occur with age. When we keep our skeletal muscles, we stay more independent and live longer.
You want to look good whether you are wearing your bathing suit, jeans and t-shirt or business suit. So how can you accomplish this with the utmost benefits? With strength training, of course! Strength training helps you lose weight while retaining muscle, especially when teamed up with fewer calories consumed during the day. Plus, strength training will help you in the following ways:
· It takes a lot of energy to replenish your body after a workout. What this means for you is that you can boost your metabolism for up to 38 hours after a workout. Imagine all the fat you will burn during and after strength training!
· Strength training can also boost your metabolism by speeding up your resting metabolic rate (RMR). The reason behind this is that it takes your body more calories to maintain muscle than fat. It is estimated that for every one pound of muscle you have, your RMR raises 30-50 calories!
