The keys to success with strength training, once you respect the principle of never hurting yourself, can be found in two major guiding principles. Progressive overload and consistency. You need to gradually but surely increase the challenge or your body will have nothing to adapt to and obviously if you aren’t consistent, then the results won’t be there either. Unfortunate factoid: You can’t store either fitness or strength. Hence the advice above. Don’t stop, once you start.
We talk a lot about functional strength, useful fitness, diabetes defeating cardio training, osteoporosis crushing (actually the opposite of that!) strength training here at ‘Best Practice Personal Training’.
But let’s not forget that even though we know its more about how you feel, there is an element, even if it is a little hidden, that responds to this kind of archetypal fitness industry headline, right?
Quick fact: If you don’t do regular strength training (progressive overload), you WILL lose muscle mass as you age. What is the fastest way to lose independence? Become less functional. What makes you less functional? You guessed it. Less active tissue in the body, i.e. muscle. Lifting weights is a necessary evil folks 🙂
