Magazines, social media, and word of mouth have discussed how helpful resistance training is for the body. But what does the science say about it? A study conducted back in 2012 summarized the following: inactive adults lose between 3-8% of muscle mass per decade resulting in increased fat development and reduced metabolic rate; adding resistance training increases lean muscle mass, reduces body fat, and also increases metabolic rate.
Not only were there fat loss and muscle changes, but there were improvements in overall body control, reduced biomarkers for chronic diseases (like Diabetes), and cardiovascular health.
The great thing is that muscle is denser than fat. Meaning that 10lbs of muscle takes up less space than 10lbs of fat. Lean muscle the functional units in our body that facilitate movement and improve health. If you are concerned about walking around like a refrigerator or have the appearance of being ‘bulky’, you can rest easy because to take on that type of muscular size takes a lot of work (not with 1 hour of training per day).
So if you feel like you want to make a change to your health and wellness, and want to make some aesthetic changes to your body, then start implementing resistance training to your workout routines.
