The Benefits of Strength Training for Your Health, Healthspan, and Longevity

Sometimes I feel like a broken record.

You’re constantly hearing from me how important the benefits of strength training are to your health and longevity and how so many of your health problems will improve or even disappear as the result of a consistent strength training program.

Why do I continue to give you the same lecture?

Because I’ve seen strength training change lives. I’ve even seen strength training SAVE lives.

Here are the Top 4 Health Improvement Factors that come as a result of challenging, consistent strength training:

1. Benefits of Strength Training: Boosts energy levels and you feel great.

I have noticed that most people don’t realize how bad they feel. They get used to feeling bad. Then when they start strength training, they feel so much better. Your energy levels soar and you feel excited about life again.

2. Benefits of Strength Training: Your muscles and joints feel better than ever.

You’ll notice a reduction in aches and pains once you’ve been sticking with a strength training program for a few weeks. That chronic muscle and joint pain that you’ve lived with for years may begin to fade. For some, joint replacement surgery is postponed. For others, arthritis pain is reduced.

3. Benefits of Strength Training: Your risk of heart attack or stroke is reduced.

I like to remind my clients of this one, since it’s not something they can physically feel, but it’s the one that saves lives! Strength training has the power to remove two of the major risk factors that lead to heart disease: 1) physical inactivity and 2) obesity. Strength training also increases your good cholesterol (HDL) and lowers your blood pressure.

4. Benefits of Strength Training: Your blood sugar levels are better controlled.

Clients of mine with type 2 diabetes see substantial benefits from strength training. Strength training improves the body’s use of insulin, and the related weight loss improves insulin sensitivity. For many, strength training becomes the natural, permanent antidote to their type 2 diabetes.
