In addition, strength training helps to build lean body mass, boosting the metabolism and energy levels to slow down the aging process as we grow older. As a result you'll feel mentally sharper, youthful, and full of energy.
Adding strength training to your exercise regimen gives you a flatter belly, shapelier arms and firmer thighs, so you’ll look great in a little black dress and skinny jeans.
The benefits don't stop there, though: Being strong gives you a sense of empowerment. It means you can be more independent and self reliant.
