Here are more reasons for you to hit the weight training room:
4. Improve your diet
When you exercise, your brain sticks to a regular diet plan. Those who do not devote a three-hours-a-week training regimen are more likely to binge on snacks and unhealthy foods and end up consuming more than 1,500 calories in a day.
5. Sweating in a weight room helps to distress
If you want to stay cool under pressure, you must break a sweat in the weight room. According to various researches, fit and healthy people exhibit lower levels of stress hormones compared with those who were less healthy. Also, those who have more muscles return from a stressful situation to a normal situation faster than those who are less muscular.
6. Stay happy
People who perform at least three workouts in a week for six months are more likely to stay happy and score better on their anger and overall mood. Besides yoga, weight-lifting is also an excellent exercise that induces Zen.
7. Stronger bones
As you grow older, your bone mass decreases and the chances of having a fracture increase. To overcome this, weight-lifting is an excellent solution that can rev up your bone growth by nearly 20 percent.
8. Healthy Heart
Besides so many other health benefits, a three day/week weight lifting workout is a sure-shot way to decrease diastolic blood pressure by an average of eight points, thereby lowering the risk of a stroke by 40 percent and that of a heart attack by 15 percent.
9. Get into shape faster
If you want to save your time without sacrificing the results, go for circuit training with weights. This will help you to boost your heart rate 15 beats per minute and strengthen your muscles.
10. Become more productive
Needless to say, with so many benefits as mentioned above, weight-lifting is surely going to increase your productivity level. On the days you work out, you will notice that your productivity will be almost 15 percent more than those days when you don’t exercise. You will even be smarter and have a longer attention span if you indulge in regular sweat sessions.
11. Live longer
You can literally postpone your death from cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and other life-threatening diseases by weight training.
