FITFACT on HOME GYM
Strength training increases your physical work capacity and improves your ability to perform activities of daily living. Weight training improves bone density. One of the best ways you can control bone loss as you age is to add such training into your workout plan. It also promotes fat-free body mass with decreasing sarcopenia (loss of muscle tissue as part of the natural ageing process). The lean muscle mass that we all work so hard for decreases with age, so if strength training is not added to our routine then it will turn into fat. Weight training increases the strength of connective tissue, muscles and tendons. This leads to improved motor performance and decreased injury risk. And finally, strength training improves your quality of life as you gain body confidence. It will not only make you strong, but will also help with managing your weight.
