More good reasons to include weight training in your exercise routine!

Here are some of the major benefits of Weight and Resistance Training:

* Increases the number of calories you burn at rest, including plenty of fat calories.

* Lowers levels of homocysteine, a protein linked to dimentia and alzheimer’s disease.

* Reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease.

* Improves short and long term memory.

* Helps with bone density.

* Lessens oxidative cell damage, a key component of cancer and other diseases.

So whether it’s hand weights, barbell weights, exercise tubing/fitness bands, or your own body weight as resistance, incorporating this into your daily workout routine is essential.
