Knowing that you are responsible for the results and you did it on your own is one of the perks of lifting weights.

Other than the obvious fact that lifting weights will increase your muscle strength and endurance, it also has numerous side effects that will change your life.

According to a study, “strength training is increasingly promoted for its many health-related benefits including a lower risk to all causes of mortality, fewer cardiovascular events (i.e., heart attack, stroke), improved body composition, better glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity, and lower blood pressure in persons with pre-hypertension and hypertension.”

Weight lifting will help form a better version of you, mentally and physically. Improve your bone density, increase the strength of your muscles and gain confidence.

Whether you are looking to start a strength training regimen or just looking for a new hobby, lifting weights is the way to go.
