Resistance Training Improves Mental Health
Research has found that taking part in regular strength training can help to improve cognitive function or your mental health. How? When you train with weights and push your body, it helps to enhance the neuromuscular system, making it work more effectively and efficiently. Your neuromuscular system is all the muscles in your body and the nerves that help them to work. Our cognitive function can start to degenerate as we get older, so strength training can help to offset cognitive diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Exercising is a great way to boost your body’s metabolism, but especially when strength training. Through strength training, you can enhance your body composition, and develop muscle mass, which all contributes to an increased metabolic rate. Many people do not realize that building muscle speeds up your metabolism, which is the process by which you process food and burn it off faster.
