Strength Training Benefits from ACE Fitness


The current issue of ACE Fitness has an extensive article on strength training. On a local tv interview I mentioned that endurance athletes who just can;t seem to find the time to fit in strength training should give up a run, bike or swim. I know, blasphemy, but it's true. According to the article here are some of the benefits:

increased resting metabolic rate (burn more calories 24/7)
improved self-esteem
improved systolic and diastolic blood pressure
increase in bone mineral density
improvement in blood lipid profiles(higher HDL and lower LDL)
enhanced functional fitness for daily activities
slowing of sarcopenia
improved insulin sensitivity
heightened cognitive abilities
management and control of depression
