Trying to lose weight, Look Younger and Feel Better?

July 27, 2016

The benefits of strong muscles are TRULY vast. In fact, in the hierarchy of health pursuits, building stronger muscles is near the very top. 

 

Why? Here are just a few reasons:

  • Strong muscles help you lose weight. And it's not just the exercise involved to become strong that matters. Muscle tissue burns as much as 15 times more calories per day than does fat tissue -- even when at rest! Nothing stokes your metabolism better than muscle.

  • Strong muscles are healthy for your heart. That's because they can perform better with less oxygen, meaning the heart doesn't have to pump hard when you are active. By extension, strong muscles are good for your blood pressure.

  • Strong muscles protect your joints and your back. More muscle power means you put less strain on joints and connective tissue when lifting or exerting. And that's awfully important both for treating and preventing arthritis.

  • Strong muscles improve your looks. Lean muscles are taut against your body, as opposed to flab, which hangs and sags. Let’s not lie to ourselves, most all of us want to improve our bodies appearance.

  • Strong muscles give you a mental boost. You feel more energized, and you feel prouder about yourself.

  • Strong muscles require active living. You can't get strong muscles from a pill, a meal or an herb. The mere fact that you have strong muscles means you are being active, and as we have been saying, nothing drags your health down like sedentary living.

  • Strong muscles help fight free radicals. Research shows that when regular folks lift weights regularly, they have less damage to their body from free radicals than those who are sedentary.

 

Its Offical.... Strong muscles are good for everyone!!   In fact, the American Heart Association now recommends that all adults’ strength train their major muscle groups at least 2-3 times a week!  So what are you waiting for?!  Ask JT about a personalized exercise program today!
