All physical activity is generally positive for your health, but there is a type of exercise that is often neglected and should be practiced diligently. It’s muscle training.
A recent Australian study shows that regular weight training is associated with a significant decrease in the risk of premature death.
Training the muscles reduces the risk of developing diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular problems, decline in cognitive functions and others. This positive impact of muscle training is well illustrated by a large study of 80,000 adults over 30 years old.
Being a top fitness athlete is not necessary to notice the benefits of bodybuilding on your health.
