8 Proven Health Benefits of Strength Training

1. Less Abdominal Fat

Having more visceral abdominal fat puts you at greater risk of heart attacks.

Strength training has been shown to reduce more visceral abdominal fat compared to cardiovascular exercise.

2. Reduces Cancer Risk

Visceral fat not only presents a higher risk of heart attacks, it’s also linked to increased risk of cancer.

3. Stable Blood Sugar

Better control of your blood sugar means less risk of developing diabetes.

If you already have Type 2 diabetes, then you should include strength training in your exercise routine.

4. Faster Metabolism

Strength training helps build muscle which is 3 times more metabolically active than fat.

Also, your body burns more calories for up to 72 hours after intense strength training exercise compared to cardiovascular exercise.

5. Better Flexibility

Contrary to popular belief, strength training through a full range of motion can help improve your flexibility.

6. Stronger Bones

Aside from giving you stronger muscles, strength training will also strengthen your bones. This helps prevent and manage osteoporosis which is prevalent in females.

7. Better Cognition

If you want better brain health and protection against age-related cognitive decline, then strength training may help with this.

8. Live Longer

Strength training may help you live longer. A study showed that people with strong grip strength were less likely to die from all causes.
