Why is strength important? It is one of the components of good physical health along with balance, endurance, and cardiovascular health. Strength is important because muscle mass diminishes as you age. You must stimulate your muscles to avoid losing muscle mass. Strength training puts stress on your bones, which helps to increase bone density. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn. The stronger you are, the more energy you will have. Strength training can be a great way to help manage chronic conditions from back pain, arthritis, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
