Resistance Training

Resistance Training Is Better to Slow Aging and Shed Unwanted Pounds

Many people understand the benefits of hitting the gym and getting exercise; however, you may not know that you can achieve better results and even slow aging by doing more resistance training. According to a new article published in the Finnish journal Duodecim, studies show resistance training is a better method for reducing fat mass and abdominal obesity.
Furthermore, resistance training has also been showing promising results for reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease by improving insulin sensitivity. This is important because these are two of the most prominent killers in North America and other developed nations.

The article continued to discuss the ability to reduce frailty syndrome, which is the summary of musculoskeletal loss and dysfunction associated with aging, through resistance training. Resistance training also showed some great results with participants that were able to increase and maintain bone mineral density, which can help decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Of course, the benefits of resistance training are enhanced and amplified when combined with proper nutrition.

The final recommendation is that resistance training should be a “central component of public health promotion programs along with aerobic exercise." Your chiropractor can advise you on this and other important lifestyle changes that you are able to integrate into your weekly routine to maximize your overall health and exercise efforts.

By implementing resistance training into your exercise sessions, your musculoskeletal health, as well as overall health, can see some improvements.
