Some people are so reluctant to work out for whatever their reasons are.
They are either lazy.
Or they try to but procrastinate.
Or they deem it to be too much work and never start, which falls under one of the two above.
But here are several reasons why you should be working out.
Keep in mind this is just towards the benefits you can receive if you lift weights or exercise in general through some form of cardio.
here are the reasons why you NEED to lift weights.
Wanting to look good
Building muscle has various healthy effects but most people do it because they want to look good.
Aesthetics is the goal for the average person and there is nothing wrong with it.
You have the power to change the way you look and putting on muscle or shaping your body is one way.
Building muscle also helps to increase bone density giving strength to your bones over time.
Helps maintain weight
Of course, your nutrition will always be the most important thing in weight management. But this also helps as well. You do burn calories when your weight lifts so along with healthy eating this helps to maintain your weight.
Helps to develop better body mechanics
Lifting weights really helps to improve body coordination and stability. It also teaches you how to formally engage in a certain movement, provided you are knowing how to do them correctly. But none the less when you do, whether it be through a trainer or understanding yourself, you engage in better body movement and mechanics.
Can help to maintain chronic diseases
Lifting weights can help combat diseases such as Osteoporosis that can make your bones brittle and weak. A lot of people in time will fall victim to their age and the weakness it can bring so lifting weights is a good way to help combat this issue the older we become.
I have never really met a person that was opposed to getting stronger. Increasing your strength can go a long way in life. Having more strength to lift heavy grocery bags to hold your child for a long period can help you with your daily routines. It also strengthens your body and makes you more durable and resistant to dangerous situations and impacts.
Can help improve heart health
Not as effective as cardio but weight training will defiantly strengthen your heart. Having a stronger heart can increase your life span and also help you to feel and look younger.
Helps to lower risk of injury
Lifting weights allows you to become stronger and can possibly help to reduce the risk of injury. When you become more durable it can allow help reduce the risk of injury.
Over time you gain energy
Over time of working out, your energy levels will increase. Like anything else, this will take time, but the improvements are worth it. Especially if you are an everyday person, it makes sense to invest on hour time and energy for investment and return of overall energy improvement.
Over time it helps to improve mood
Your mood does become positively affected by weightlifting. There have been many studies to prove this but if you have a weight lifted already then you know this yourself. Is this a fix for all of the issues someone may have? Of course not. But it does elevate your mood and it can relieve stress.
So, if you are someone who doesn’t like to lift weights, again, here are the reasons why you need to lift weights.
It just improves your all-around life and something personally think everyone should give time and investment into.
Because the more you put into this, the better your life will be.
