Putting Some Muscle Into It
A strong body is a healthy body. The benefits of building muscle mass or strength are many; decreased aging, better posture, better balance and endurance, increased energy, mood elevation, burn more calories, better weight control, increased immunity, greater self-esteem.
How to get stronger:
If you want to build muscles…you have to work your muscles until they’re tired. It is the principle of overload. When you work your muscles until they tire, your body sends signals for your muscle tissue to repair and build. Because your body is highly adaptable, if you train using the same amount of resistance over and over, you will maintain your strength, but not build muscle mass or strength.
Instead you’ll need to increase the amount of resistance or weight you’re using every 2 to 4 weeks to keep pushing your body to build strength.
