The Benefits of Strength Training
A paradigm shift has taken place. Strength training has traditionally been viewed as a form of exercise reserved for athletes, bodybuilders, and those interested in improving their physical appearance. However, decades of scientific research suggest that we have been dramatically undervaluing the effects of properly performed strength training. The research-proven benefits of strength training are broader than we have ever assumed. In fact, research shows that many health benefits can only be achieved through strength training.
