It is common for people to fear weight-resistance training to their regular workout routines. This is particularly true of women who mistakenly fear sudden man-like muscle development. Some fear weight training due to previous weight training-related pain or injury which very often was caused by incorrect weight training practices. There are a host of benefits you will enjoy when correctly performing weight-bearing exercises on a regular basis. We can help you out here at our North Attleboro fitness center.
Weight-bearing exercise also builds and strengthens a person’s bones. When a person does weight-bearing exercise, his muscles pull on his bones as he does them. This helps make the bones both stronger and more dense. Stronger bones mean less chance of injury and can even translate into a reduced risk of osteoporosis, which is a disease marked by brittle, weakened bones.
An individual hoping to achieve better health and stamina may find weight-bearing exercises helpful. Exercising with weights helps increase a person’s overall stamina. It may also help slow the aging process, especially if a person also does exercises that are good for the cardiovascular system, such as walking and running. Since those who do weight-bearing exercises regularly tend to have leaner bodies, they may also have a decreased risk of developing cancer, diabetes, and many other health problems that are associated with being overweight.
Many people do weight-bearing workouts in order to enjoy a toned physique. Working out in this manner can replace flabby, fatty parts of the body with toned muscle. It also helps build muscle strength, boost coordination, and improve a person’s overall balance. As a person build’s his muscles, he can count on not only a more defined look for muscular areas, but also less risk of accidental injury. Adding muscle mass works to make the joints, bones, tendons, and ligaments hardier and more capable of avoiding injury
