Strength training has been an important part of my life for over 30 years.  I think physical as well as intellectual development is important for well-roundedness.  

Here are some reasons why strength training is important for overall health and well-being:

  1. Enhances physical performance: Strength training can help you improve your physical performance in everyday activities, such as lifting groceries, climbing stairs, or playing sports. By increasing your muscle strength and endurance, you can move more efficiently and with less effort.

  2. Boosts brain function: Strength training has been shown to improve cognitive function, memory, and attention in both younger and older adults. Exercise increases blood flow to the brain, which can promote the growth of new brain cells and improve the connections between existing neurons.

  3. Promotes emotional well-being: Strength training can boost your mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Exercise releases endorphins, which are natural mood boosters, and can also help you feel more confident and in control.

  4. Improves bone density: Strength training can help prevent osteoporosis by increasing bone density and reducing the risk of fractures. As we age, our bones become more brittle and prone to injury, but strength training can help keep them strong and healthy.

  5. Prolongs life: Strength training can help you live longer by reducing your risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Exercise can also improve your immune function, which can help you fight off infections and other illnesses.

In conclusion, strength training can improve physical performance, boost brain function, promote emotional well-being, improve bone density, and prolong life. Whether you are young or old, strength training can help you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
