9 Benefits of Strength Training
Strength training can be the cure for a lull in your gym routine! If you’re getting bored with the treadmill and elliptical, it’s time to switch it up. Implement strength training! Strength training provides many benefits to your overall health, your physique, and metabolic rate. Learn about 10 benefits of strength training. You’ll be motivated to start!

1) Boost Your Metabolism
After a few weeks of strength training, individuals notice an increase in their resting metabolic rate. Lean muscle burns more calories than fat tissue. This means you are burning more calories just going about your day, helping you slim down faster.

2) Improve Your Mood
Strength training, like cardio, releases endorphins. Strength training can elevate your mood and energy levels just after one session. It’s proven to de-stress the mind and improve the quality of sleep.

3) Tone Up
The most obvious benefit of strength training is muscle toning. It allows you to shape and define different muscles that is simply impossible to do that with a treadmill alone. There are varieties of programs for different strength training goals. Whether you want to bulk up, or grow lean and long, there are strength training programs for you!

4) Improve Strength All Over
Strength training isn’t only about muscle development. It strengthens ligaments, tendons, and nerves to prevent injury in your day to day life. After a few weeks of strength training, you will notice that you walk more comfortably, your posture is improving, and you feel great all over.

5) Beat Boredom
Run on the treadmill. Walk on the elliptical. It can get dull! With strength training, you have the ability to switch it up whenever you want. Work your legs one day, work your arms the next. Target your core, or spend a session on your glutes. With strength training, you can target different parts of the body to keep your routine from getting repetitive!

6) Boost Your Self-Esteem
Who doesn’t like seeing results in the mirror? We all love that feeling! It’s a great boost in self-confidence to see your hard work paying off. Strength training is one of the fastest ways to see results in muscle tone.

7) No Limitation
Strength training doesn’t require a gym! You can do a variety of resistance and strength training in the comfort of your home. How convenient is that?

8) Disease Prevention
Studies have shows that strength training leads to overall health and well-being. Strength training can diminish symptoms of arthritis. It can also help prevent diabetes because healthy muscles help regulate glucose levels within the body.

9) Burn More Calories
After you have been strength training for a while, you will burn more calories all the time. If you hop on the treadmill, it's will be a more productive cardio session with you newly strengthened muscles!
