Why resistance training? It’s not just about looking great in a bikini, although this can be a great motivator. There is lots of research to suggest that it’s also got amazing health benefits as it:
- increases bone density
- builds lean muscle mass (muscle burns fat)
- boosts metabolism and assists with weight loss/maintenance
- regulates insulin and lowers inflammation
- makes you more resilient to disease
- improves sleep
Here’s a funny quote I heard a long time ago: “Cardio makes you look good in clothes, weights make you look good naked”.
