Here are ‘eleven’ ( get it ) reasons/benefits why doing ‘Stronger’ Things & lifting weights is a good idea:
Burn more calories when you are resting.
Better mobility – if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it!
Increased confidence & self esteem.
Clearer mindset (get out of your own head).
Better balance & co ordination- you may fall less.
Improved heart health & function.
Reduced risk of diabetes.
Strong potential for improved quality of sleep.
The body shape you truly want, rather than just losing scale weight.
Weight training is not just limited to how you look, the health benefits are endless.
You don’t have to do anything crazy extreme, but regular resistance training should be part of any balanced program.
