Why You Should Not Ignore The Benefits Of Resistance Training

Author : Hydra Lunnti

As many health experts say, resistance training is a great way to complement your overall fitness program. By implementing strength training machines, or actually no equipment at all, you can create your very own resistance training program. Anybody, from teens to seniors, female or male, may benefit from establishing a resistance training program. In the words that follow, you will learn vital reasons that you should begin doing this exercise program on a regular basis.

Most people that do not lift weights on a regular basis claim that they do not have enough time to follow through. These people more than likely believe that they will have to spend too much time at the gym like a professional bodybuilder. However, the fact is that you can gain many of the most important advantages of resistance training even if you only work out twice a week. Your workouts should be brief, consisting of only 2 to 4 of them a week, allowing for rest in between so your muscles can recover. It is only necessary to do four short workouts, or 2 to 3 longer workouts, each and every week in order to see the benefits of this exercise routine. Therefore, if you only have or three hours a week to spare, you can improve your appearance, burn fat, and begin to gain muscle strength. As with any form of exercise, it is never too late to begin your very first resistance training program. Up to three times a week, a well-known study showed how about 100 senior citizens did a resistance program while they were in their 70s to 90s. It was shown to have improved their bone density, strength, and mobility. The effects of arthritis can also be helped in a positive manner by doing this form of exercise. Greater flexibility and mobility are just some of the beneficial side effects seen in older people that perform resistance training.

Many women are afraid that they will gain too much muscle mass if they begin a resistance training program. If you do not eat a lot of foods that will cause you to both, and you do not work with heavyweights, you have nothing to fear. A simple way to not build any muscle mass, yet get into phenomenal shape, is to do lots of repetitions with a lighter amount of weight. Women are now urged to do resistance training for stronger bones, something that's especially important for post-menopausal women. Lifting weights can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, something that afflicts many women around the time of middle age.

There are many health reasons that most people should begin resistance training especially if they are middle-aged. If you have fears that it will make you muscle bound and unattractive, or slow and clumsy, you're falling victim to myths that were shattered decades ago. All of the evidence presented in this article clearly shows that people of all ages should be doing a resistance workout routine.
