THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question:

How important is muscular strength to total body fitness?

Answer: 

 

 

People are starting to realize that aerobic exercise, while great for the heart and lungs and terrific for overall general health, is not an all-inclusive recipe for fitness. Possessing muscular strength is equally as important, and actually provides us with many of the same benefits as cardiovascular fitness such as lower blood pressure, lower resting heart rate, improvements in cholesterol levels and lower body fat.

Muscular strength exercises are the quickest way to reshape, build, strengthen and tighten all the major muscle groups of the body. These exercises are very effective in improving your overall appearance and posture as well as increasing bone mass, which means a lower risk of conditions such as osteoporosis. Having muscular strength also increases the strength of the joints decreasing the risk of injury.

If you are not including strength conditioning in your workout...you should consider starting.
