Benefits of strength training part 1



Increased Fat Burning

Performing resistance based exercises a few times a week through a structured a progressive approach we increase our chances of building lean muscle mass.

With increasing our lean muscle mass, we burn more calories at rest along with calories being burnt for a longer duration after strength training opposed to a traditional cardio session.

This with the right nutrition approach dramatically increases our chances of burning more stored body fat.



Higher bone density

As we age the prevalence of osteoporosis and sarcopenia become higher.

Osteoporosis being decreased bone mass while sarcopenia is a reduction in skeletal muscle mass function and strength.

Research has continually showed that performing resistance based exercises in which mechanical load exceed daily activities are highly beneficial for the preservation of bone and muscle mass.

As mentioned before just 1 hour of resistance based training has shown to provide benefits but here at EMP we always say 2-3 sessions a week is the sweet spot




Did you know strength training helps increase longevity...

Inactive adults experience a 3% to 8% loss of muscle mass per decade accompanied by resting metabolic rate reduction and fat accumulation.

Research has shown that with just ten weeks of resistance based training you can increase lean muscle mass, resting metabolic rate by 7% and reduce fat weight.

The important factor when talking resistance based training and longevity is the increase/maintenance of lean muscle mass.

With the right nutrition approach and a few sessions a week of resistance based training we can put our best foot forward as we age.

Stay tuned for part 2...
