Why strength and conditioning is important:
When it comes to working out and getting healthy, there are many different important components – such as strength and conditioning. Whether you are into yoga or martial arts, the fact of the matter is that building strength matters. In order to achieve your fitness goals, you need to have a strong core. This is why strength and conditioning is so important. Because of all its incredible benefits, strength and conditioning is a critical addition to any fitness routine. Over the years health and fitness experts have tried to instill the importance of strength and conditioning training in everyone from 9-5 office workers to professional athletes. Let’s look at a few of the lesser known benefits of this type of training:
Promotes Healthy Bones: By integrating regular weight bearing exercise, you will be strengthening your bones, which will in turn result in a strong musculoskeletal system. Strong bones mean that you will be able to lift, move, and perform a wide range of recreational activities with ease and safety.
Helps prevent injury: One of the top benefits of strength and conditioning is that it will help protect you from preventable injuries. Strength and conditioning works to make your body stronger. When your core is strong, you will be able to transfer energy to the rest of the muscles resulting in more efficient body mechanics. Those who train regularly will create strong body mechanics, strengthen tendons and ligaments and eliminate any muscle imbalances, which are some of the main causes of injury.
Enhanced mood: It is common knowledge that endorphins are released during an effective workout, such as our strength and conditioning class. This type of workout will provide you with the opportunity to burn calories at a faster right, while strengthening and toning your muscles at the same time. As you are burning calories and those endorphins are flowing, you may notice that your mood is elevated, and you are able to deal with stressful scenarios much easier.
Increased Metabolism: As with many other types of exercise, strength and conditioning can actually increase your metabolism, helping you lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. By creating stronger muscles through strength and conditioning, you will burn more calories and keep the unwanted pounds off.
