Strength training is a really useful type of exercise for improving both health and performance.
Here’s what you get from strength training:
- You get stronger (hence the name).
- You develop stronger bones, reducing the risk of fractures.
- You tone your figure, adding shape in the right places.
- You lose weight faster, because muscle burns more calories than fat. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn — even sitting at your desk
DNAFit Tip – You don’t need a gym membership to do strength training. Bodyweight exercises, such as squats and press ups, don’t need any equipment and can be done anywhere!
How much strength training do you need? It all depends on your goals and your genetic makeup. Find out what your body needs with gene testing.
