How "Strong" and "Sexy" Come Together

Strong and sexy usually come together. We become sexy because we workout, we lift weight, and we train. And these activities also make us strong.

Today, let me share with you fitness facts from a fitness guru Samantha Clayton. What are the things that we need to know to make us strong aside from the activities we usually do? Let's find out! 

Here are three important reasons for you to pick up some weights and make yourself stronger according to former Olympian and Herbalife Director of Worldwide Fitness Education. It’s a fact: strong is in. A toned, muscular and functional body has become the new sexy for both men and women.The growing acceptance by the media and sportswear companies that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes is a positive step toward encouraging people to lead a healthy,active lifestyle.

Best of all, Clayton said, a healthy body, which may come in different shapes and sizes,will never go out of fashion. Have you heard of the term ‘skinny fat’? This is when someone may look thin, but in actuality they have an unhealthy internal body-fat ratio that is detrimental to their health. There are also many people who may look a little larger, but are actually very health internally. With any exercise plan, your main priority should be to benefit the inside of your body. But as a bonus, exercise benefits your external appearance as well. 



The following are important reasons why you should add weight and strength training to your regular fitness routine.

Three Reasons to Get Stronger Now

Burn More Calories

By lifting weights and becoming strong, you’ll change every aspect of your body. People with increased musclemass burn more calories at rest than those without. It takes more energy for your body to sustain lean muscle and, therefore, your resting metabolic rate may increase as a result of lifting weights.

Improved Bone Density

Weight-bearing exercise is very beneficial for bone health in people of all ages. The aging process is linked to a decrease in bone density and a greater risk of fractures. So, consider how you can add weights to your workout, because your bones rely on resistance training to stay healthy and strong.

Improved Performance

If your body gets used to lifting weights, imagine how much easier just lifting your own body weight will be.Improved strength means that your daily activities will become easier, and if you’re training for a sport, an increase in muscular strength can significantlyimprove your performance.

Becoming stronger has so many benefits, and you don’t need to be worried about looking like an out-of-proportion body builder. Unless you’re dedicating hundreds of hours to lifting heavy weights and following a very specific body-building nutrition plan, the chances of you getting bulky are slim. Adding weighttraining to your routine two to three times a week and eating a protein-rich diet will have you well on your way toward achieving a healthy muscular physique. Also,don’t be afraid tolift heavy weights. But do make sure that you start out with manageable, lighter weights so that you can focus on technique for 12-15 reps and slowly work your way up to heavier weights. As you increase the weight you’re using, decrease to 8-10 reps. 

Your body will start adapting to weight training right away, so get started today. 03/11/2018 (Runner Rocky)
