The Evidence of effectiveness of a strength program
According to the research completed by the American College of Sports Medicine.
- Reducing the incidence of injury by engaging in a resistance training program is as beneficial for the non-competitive beginner as it is for the professional athlete. (Article: Resistance Training & Injury Prevention)
- Regular resistance training can decrease the risk of heart disease by lowering body fat, decreasing blood pressure, improving cholesterol, and lowering the stress placed on the heart while lifting a particular load. Improving muscular fitness is very important for enhancing quality of life. (Article: Resistance Training for Health & Fitness)
- Resistance training provides the greatest osteogenic (increase in bone mineral density) effect. Resistance training is beneficial for increasing bone and muscular strength. (Article: Resistance Training & Injury Prevention)
- The benefits of strength training include increased muscle and bone mass, muscle strength, flexibility, dynamic balance, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Strength training also helps reduce the symptoms of various chronic diseases such as arthritis, depression, type-2 diabetes, osteoporosis, sleep disorders, and heart disease. (Seguin & Nelson, 2003. The benefits of strength training for older adults. American journal of preventive medicine,25(3),141-149)
- The positive outcomes resulting from regular exercise and/or physical activity programs include increased cardiovascular fitness,improvements in body composition, decreased anxiety and depression, and enhanced feelings of well-being.
