Developing and maintaining strong muscles is essential for our health. The best kind of exercise for strengthening our muscles is called Resistance Training. Resistance Training exercises often involve lifting handheld weights or using your own body weight for a specific number of repetitions.
This type of training can provide significant functional benefits and improvements in overall health and well-being.
These improvements include:
- increased bone density
- improved muscle mass and joint function
- reduced potential for injury and falls
- increased metabolism
- improved cardiac function
Performing resistance exercises at least 2- 3 times a week consistently can help manage and treat many conditions including peripheral vascular disease, stroke, diabetes and raised blood pressure.
