😃 BETTER MOOD:
Resistance training stimulates the release of endorphins, which contributes to reduced stress and enhanced overall well-being.
With the hormonal changes, women are more likely to be affected by osteoporosis. Weight-bearing exercises promote bone density by exerting force on the bones promoting the production of osteoblasts, cells responsible for bone formation, ultimately making bones stronger and more resilient.
💪 STRONGER MUSCLES:
As we start aging, we also start losing muscles.
(3-5% each decade after age 30 😱)
Lifting weight can help to prevent or reverse the effect of natural sarcopenia (muscle loss).
Having stronger muscles also means moving better, burning more calories and better bones.
✨ INCREASED CONFIDENCE:
The psychological benefits of resistance training include improved body image and self-esteem. Achieving physical goals through training can positively influence one's perception of themselves, fostering confidence.
Muscle tissue has a higher metabolic rate than fat tissue. As resistance training builds lean muscle mass, it contributes to an elevated basal metabolic rate, enhancing overall calorie expenditure.
Resistance exercises targeting core muscles and the back contribute to improved posture by strengthening the muscles that support the spine. This helps maintain a neutral spine alignment.
🧠 BOOST BRAINPOWER:
Physical activity, including resistance training, has been linked to improved cognitive function. It enhances blood flow to the brain, and may contribute to better memory and cognitive abilities.
🤸♀️IMPROVE OVERALL HEALTH:
Regular resistance training positively impacts cardiovascular health, insulin sensitivity, and metabolic function. It contributes to a healthier body composition, reducing the risk of chronic diseases.
🌈 IMPROVED MENTA HEALTH:
Lifting weights helps regulate hormons level. With exercise, the brain releases "happy" hormones like dopamine, serotonin and endorphins. Regular exercise can help reduce depression, anxiety and other common mental health conditions.
