Strength Training changes more than just your muscles

There is still a belief held by many people that strength training is just for young people who want to bulk up and look good in a mirror. And while there are some benefits to the size of muscles and how you look the benefits are so much more than that. One of my missions in life is to try and change this perception and thinking and educate people in the community that strength training is an absolute must for their health. If you are a female over 50 strength training is critical because it will protect you against the rapidly forming osteoporosis by increasing your bone density. But it does not stop there as it is also proven to improve chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, heart disease, cancer and even depression. Instead of a long drawn out article to explain this I have created a very quick to read info-graphic with some compelling statistics and information about the true benefits of strength training that you can share with your friends and family. Enjoy.
