Why lift weights?
Exercising with weights cuts fat, builds muscle, revs up metabolism, enhances confidence and self-image, and reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Lifting weights builds muscle power better than any of the other techniques available and it can benefit anyone from elite athletes to the elderly. For athletes strength gains translate to improved performance on and off the court. For regular people, getting stronger muscles and bones lowers the risk of getting injured and it also prevents osteoporosis and arthritis. Just like any other form of exercise, lifting weights improves concentration, relieves stress, and gives the feeling of happiness because of endorphins flooding your system after every workout session.
