5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO LIFT WEIGHTS...
1) PREVENTS CHEAT MEALS GOING STRAIGHT TO YOUR BELLY FAT
Want to eat that extra piece of pizza without feeling guilty? Lift weights. When you lift weights, you improve your body's metabolism. Studies have shown that an increase in type II muscle fibers can reduce body fat without changes to diet and might be effective in the fight against obesity.
2) FIGHT SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION
Anaerobic exercise, such as weightlifting, show little difference between aerobic exercise, such as running, in terms of how well they relieve symptoms of depression. After training with weights, an instant release of "feel good" hormones called endorphins and a feeling of accomplishment after you finish your workout helps those feeling symptoms of depression.
3) PREVENT OSTEOPOROSIS
As you get older, you naturally lose muscle and bone mass. Just as your muscles adapt to the stress of weightlifting by becoming bigger and stronger, your bones also adapt.
4) BE A BETTER ATHLETE AT ANY AGE
Strengthening muscles used in any sport, will help push yourself to your limits when in competition and game mode. Plus, weightlifting also improves endurance and hand-eye coordination, all of which will help you be a more well rounded athlete.
5) EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES BECOME EASIER
Lifting weights not only builds strength, but it also helps to develop mind and body connection. Basic movements such as squatting, lunging, push ups and pull ups, help perform everyday activities such as climbing stairs, shovelling, gardening, lifting heavy groceries, with ease. Fun activities such as skating, snow boarding and hiking are more enjoyable with good core, lower body and upper body strength.
