Strength Training and Weight Loss

Strength training during weight loss helps preserve and build muscles which
in turn helps maintain and even raise the metabolic rate. This can assist with
weight loss and weight maintenance in the long term.
Benefits of strength training include improved muscle tone, improved mobility
and balance, increased bone density and a general improvement in self esteem.
There are a number of different forms of resistance training including free
weights, weight machines, resistance bands or your own body weight.


Warning: Strength training can be dangerous if your technique is not
right. Make sure you have a proper assessment and program written by
a qualified exercise professional.
