Amongst the numerous type of strength sports one can partake in ( Crossfit, Powerlifting, Weightlifting, Strongman ) , everyone can benefit from improving their Strength, and yes that includes the non-athletes or weekend warriors.
Reduced Injury Risk
Through load bearing movements in strength work, benefits include healthier and stronger bones. When the muscles get stronger, that includes the connective tissues surrounding it as well.
This paired with a higher and better awareness of how your body moves in space (Utilising certain muscles, how to better distribute your bodyweight) will lead to few injuries.
Needless to say, your quality of life would dramatically improve as well.
As you build more muscles, your metabolism rate increases. This results in you burning more calories as well, keeping your body fat levels low, increased energy and providing you with that additional vigour to keep up to life’s demands.
The beauty of Strength training is that it benefits athletes across all sports. Every sport involves the application of force, be it achieving a lower handicap in Golf, completing your first marathon etc. Most people don’t realize that getting stronger complements sports across all spectrums.
