The Benefits of Strength Training 3
As mentioned before, lifting weights helps to improve your coordination, your balance, your muscle strength and your overall range of motion. This in turn will lead you to have better posture and ultimately to stand taller than you did before engaging in any resistance training routines. This will make your back straighten, your chin lift, and your chest push out with confidence; it makes you look taller, slimmer, and it makes you feel more confident too.
Like mentioned before, strength training and lifting weights is not only good for your body, it’s good for your mind too. Strength training helps to improve overall cognitive functions of the human mind and helps people accomplish tasks with greater efficiency and increased focus. This is because you really need to be focused and coordinated to execute a solid workout routine, and this will translate over into your daily life and all of the tasks that come with your life. Resistance training and weight lifting makes not only your physical life easier, but your mental abilities improve as well.
Improved Sleeping Habits
It is proven that strength training and weight lifting helps the body to sleep better at night time. This is in large because working out stresses your body and causes fatigue due to the large amounts of strain put on your body. Not only will it help you sleep longer, it also helps prevent and manage things like insomnia and sleep apnea too. On a side note, you should always do your exercising at least 2 hours before you wish to go to bed. This is because exercising will increase your heart beat and raise your body’s core temperature, which can make it harder to fall asleep at night time.
