Remember back in the day when doing just cardio was all the rage? As you may be aware, the strength movement has exploded over the past decade. 🏋️♀️
I always tell my clients that cardio is GREAT for your heart ❤️ but not really for changing your body.
Basically, cardio alone will make you a smaller version of the shape you already are. And if changing the shape of your body and shedding fat is something you desire, then weight training is where it’s at!
But there are even more incredible benefits to being strong…
1️⃣ It improves your hormonal balance. If you’re struggling with fat loss, energy, cravings, and more, this is so important!
2️⃣ It boosts your confidence. Trust me on this one! How you look transforms but so does how you FEEL!
3️⃣ It protects your bones. Strength training actually increases bone density, decreasing your risk for many age-related diseases.
4️⃣ It decreases your risk of injury. When you’re strong, you can more easily complete daily tasks like bending and lifting.
5️⃣ Your posture will improve. Enough said! You’ll have less pain and good posture just looks better!
6️⃣ You can rely on yourself. Whether you need to store a suitcase overhead on a plane or carry in eight grocery bags at once, having physical independence and not asking anyone for help is an incredible gift to give yourself.
The key to getting all of the amazing benefits related to strength training, however, is doing it properly and progressively. And that just happens to be our specialty here at push!
