Mar 17, 2017 | Training | 0 comments

Finding a workout routine that is right for you doesn’t come easy and neither does making time for the gym. But, with resistance exercise, you can work out from the comfort of your home with any of Stroops Slastix bands. No matter what age you are, resistance training can start improving your life the moment you begin. Not only can it strengthen your body, but It also has a strong impact on your mental and emotional health.

What is Resistance Training?

Resistance Training is an exercise that increases muscle strength through weights, resistance bands or your own body weight. This training is based on the principle that your muscles will work to overcome a resistant force whenever it needs to. It is known to increase the strength and mass of muscles, bones strength and metabolism. Resistance training should be done consistently and should also be tailored to the body areas you want to strengthen.

If you want to improve your resistance training, start by changing your program every six to eight weeks. This includes:
– Sets
– Repetitions
– Exercises
– Intensity
– Frequency of sessions
– Rest between sets
– Varying your resistance program training will help you maintain any strength gains you make.

How Does Resistance Exercise Work?

Resistance training causes damage or tears to the muscle cells that are quickly repaired by the body to help them regenerate and grow stronger. Many beginners will notice increasing growth rapidly, but it may plateau, but you shouldn’t be discouraged because eventually the muscle cells will respond to resistance training by increasing in size. Reaching the plateau is actually a good sign.

Regularly changing your routine including adding new exercises will help challenge different muscle groups, forcing them to strengthen. With a gradual increase in weight, your muscles will be encouraged to grow stronger and larger. Your muscles need time to rest and heal for them to grow. It’s important to let them recover for 24 hours before working on that muscle group again.

Health Benefits of Resistance Training

There are many advantages of resistance training both mentally and physically. It can help your cholesterol levels while also contributing to cardiovascular health. Resistance training also helps to prevent chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, back pain, depression and diabetes. Since muscles can burn calories, an increase in muscle mass reduce body fat and enhances your metabolic rate. It is one of the most effective ways to lose and maintain your weight.

As our body naturally diminishes with age, so it’s important to continue doing exercises and keep our bones stronger. Doing resistance trainings on a regular basis can slow down the loss of muscle mass. The muscle mass you will build also protects your joins and improves stability and balance. Protecting your joints may prevent and control arthritis.

One reason that resistance training has immediate results is because the aerobic exercise you’ll be doing instantly improves body image and self esteem. After training for a short period of time, you will notice that your muscles have grown and become more toned.

Before you start working on a resistance training program, set up a training with Stroops to learn about your options. Knowing what is right for your body before you start your routine will prevent future injuries. With video tutorials and easy-to-use at-home resistance bands, Stroops will help you build up your fitness and build your core.
