The number of strength training benefits continues. 

Here are a few:  Keeps your metabolism raised which helps with fat burning. 

This happens at any age.  If you build muscle you will be helping to burn more body fat.

Keeps you strong and more active.  Stronger people are more active.  Fit people are more active.  They move more and they move more easily.

Strength training builds strong bones.  Stressing your bones increases the bone’s density and fights off osteoporosis.  It also helps you maintain great posture.

More muscle equals more protection for the joints and helps keep them active.  It also helps with maintaining your balance which keeps the risk of falls down.  

As you get older the risk of falls increases and hip injuries, knee injuries and back injuries can be devastating.

Strength training can also boost your stamina.  This means less fatigue and more energy.

It can also reduce the symptoms of many diseases like arthritis, depression, diabetes, obesity, chronic pain, osteoporosis and many other chronic conditions.

It can also help you concentrate better and become more focused which means you can keep your attention for longer periods of time. 

Strength training benefits are many and the longer you maintain your strength the younger you will feel and the more active you will be no matter what your age.
