Why do strength training?
Think you’re too old, young, weak, tired, unmotivated (I'll leave a space here for you to insert your own excuse: ______________) to start a strength training program?
Think again! Strength training is just what your body needs to fight the loss of muscle, bone mass and strength that comes with age.
Everyone, no matter how young or old, should be doing some kind of regular strength training.
So what’s the point? If you’ve never participated in a strength training program, why start now? Here are some very important reasons strength training makes a difference in your quality of life:
Improves your ability to do everyday activities: The stronger your muscles, the easier it is to get groceries out of the car, get a package off of the top cabinet shelf, push the lawnmower…..the list goes on and on!
Improves your balance and stability: The stronger and more resilient your muscles, the more balance is sturdier. This will help keep you safe in your daily activities and decreases the risk of falls or accidents.
Builds muscle strength: Adults lose between five and seven pounds of muscle every decade after age 20. Strength training will help prevent this muscle loss, and rebuild what you may have lost.
Decreases your risk of osteoporosis: Inactivity and aging can lead to a decrease in bone density, leading to brittleness. Studies have shown that consistent strength training can increase bone density and prevent osteoporosis.
Reduces blood pressure: Strength training can be beneficial for the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure by strengthening the heart, allowing it to beat more efficiently.
Increases calorie burn: Strength training increases the body's metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories throughout the day. This aids significantly in long term weight loss.
Reduces low back pain: Research has shown that strength training can increase low back strength and alleviate low back pain
Serious Body building and weight training

Hammer Strength is the choice of professional athletes when they train at the highest levels, and it’s relied upon by the top college and high school athletic programs in the country. Hammer Strength is the No. 1 option for elite athletes because it can take the pounding they dish out, and, most importantly, it’s designed to provide results. It isn’t reserved just for professional training facilities or college weight rooms. Everyday athletes benefit from the excellent bio-mechanical design in the same way that the pros do.
