STRENGTH TRAINING ADDS YEARS TO YOUR LIFE!
A new study from the University of Sydney found a correlation between strength training and a lower death rate of all causes, including heart disease and cancer. Specifically, the risk of early death from cancer decreased by 31%, and the risk from any other cause was lowered by 23%.
You’ve heard it before…strength training boosts your metabolism, burns a bunch of calories, and helps reduce your risk of injury. So if you needed one more reason to grab a pair of dumbbells, check out the study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. It’s true..strength training can add years to your life, and is just as important…if not MORE important…than cardio.
To give you a little jumpstart, try today’s 1-minute routine, where I guide you through a weighted lunge with bicep curl and balance. That’s right…it’s a functional move that focuses on multiple muscle groups at one time. Besides being an effective toning move, this functional method of training moves your body the way it moves in everyday life. And the big benefit? MORE TONING IN LESS TIME!
