Recent research shows that muscle strengthening activity can help lower your risk of death from all causes by up to 20%. And all it takes is 30-60 minutes per week!
Whether it’s gardening, yoga or lifting weights, any kind of strength training can be extremely beneficial to your health. Combine this with aerobic exercise and the benefits were seen to rise to 40%.
The form your exercise takes is not very important, as long as you are getting the 30-60 minutes in per week. There are a host of other benefits from moderate exercise, such as proper hormonal function and memory, releasing endorphins, fighting off the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and helps build lean muscle mass.
