WHY IS RESISTANCE TRAINING IMPORTANT?





Why is resistance training important?

It is recommended that the average person accumulate up to 150 minutes of aerobic exercise, with a combination of 2-3 days of resistance training per week. Many times people tend to prefer one mode of exercise such as running or cycling or only weight training, but do not realize that a combination of both cardiovascular and resistance training is the most optimal for health. Resistance training not only conditions the muscles allowing for more strength and power, but also strengthens the bones. If you load the bones by resistance training, they will also respond to the loading by remodeling and depositing more calcium. Resistance training is important for a young population to prevent osteopenia and sarcopenia as you start to age, but also for an older population. People as young as 30 start to decrease muscle mass, and increase fat mass as each year goes on. So stay ahead of the game and incorporate resistance training into your exercise program, 2-3 days a week. It is never too late to start, as improvements can always be made no matter where you are in your fitness journey.
