There are many positive benefits to strength training and these are not only physical. Physical exercise has a mutually beneficial result on your psychological welfare as it does on your body’s physical health. Physical benefits to strength training begin with reducing, avoiding or rehabilitating any tendon damage, any muscle damage and maintains the strength and integrity of the muscles and tendons surrounding complex and highly vulnerable joints which can have a significant impact on joint stability and preventing any ligament and/or cartilage damage within the joint. First of all, strength training, if done correctly makes you stronger in more ways than you’d expect. Which ultimately makes every aspect of your life easier, increasing happiness and efficiency whilst reducing stress and exhaustion. IF, you’re proactively engaging in correct strength training – past the first month or two of nothing but pain and fatigue! You will get better, it will get easier AND you will thank yourself in the long run.
