Building muscles isn’t just for a show. Sure, you look great all toned up and you feel confident about yourself strutting off your body. But muscles are also essential for good health.
Strength training, in fact, is just as important as cardiovascular workout. This helps slow down the process of muscle loss due to aging and at the same time, increase density of bone and strength of muscles and connective tissues.
According to studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, exercises that build muscles also prevent injuries, improve balance, enhance sleep quality, increase concentration, and lower levels of high blood sugar.
