Strength Training by Nicholas Hammond

Strength Training by Nicholas Hammond

Strength Training is a key component to achieving your physical goal, along with the necessary education of specific lifting routines. What most do NOT realize about strength training is how important it is over most other fitness routines. Many people that I talk to think that just doing cardio movements (Running, elliptical, biking, etc.) is enough exercise to keep them healthy and strong. Unfortunately, they could not be more wrong. Cardio is an excellent way to achieve heart health and build endurance but your heart is only one muscle, what about the rest of them?  The average person loses one pound of muscle and replaces it with two pounds of fat from the age of 30 on. What can we do to prevent this? The answer to both of these questions is STRENGTH TRAINING! I am very aware that most people unfamiliar with strength training find it intimidating and more often times they picture themselves underneath a squat rack or chest press with heavy weight. Not exactly. There are many different forms of strength training, one of which includes stretching. No matter what strength training program we choose to do, our number one priority is to protect our muscle by eating protein-rich foods and strength training regularly.
