The skeletal muscle systems is one of the most complex and largest networks of the human body, incorporating the neuron-muscular system this system allows us move heavy loads under tension that burn macronutrients as energy.
Strength training is the use of resistance based movements to help to improve strength, increase muscle mass and bone density. Actively participating in strength based programming will improve our metabolic rate through increased muscle cell size and power out-put to help burn more calories, even after training. Consistent strength training will also help to reduce injury risk by strengthening bones, ligaments and tendons.
The key pillars to gain strength and build lean muscle mass
- Quality programming
- Training frequency
- Proper nutrition
- Progressive overload
- Fatigue management
The major benefits of consistent strength training
- Increased strength
- Increased lean active muscle mass
- Fat loss
- Reduce chance of injury
- Improved coordination
- Reduced diabetes risk
- Helps deliver nutrients to working muscles and vital tissues through the circulatory system. What Arnie calls “The pump”.
