Strength training is not just beneficial to athletes looking to improve their performance. It is vital for health, and everyone should incorporate resistance training into their weekly routine.

• It increases bone density to help prevent osteoporosis unlike non weight-bearing activities such as cycling and swimming.
• It helps to reduce body fat and boosts your metabolism by increasing muscle mass. If you are looking to lose weight, don’t waste hours on a cross trainer which can break down muscle tissue and slow down your metabolism. You will probably lose weight initially, but ever wondered why you can’t keep the weight off?
• Reduces injury risk.
