Slow lifting has a decided advantage over standard weight-training techniques because it puts greater demand on the muscles, thus burning calories faster […]

Fight and Slow Down Muscle Breakdown (Saracopenia)

Sarcopenia, the age related decline in muscle mass, is associated with a reduction in muscle function, physical performance, quality of life, and loss of independence. Exercise, specifically resistance (weight) training, has been shown to be an effective countermeasure, arresting decline and substantially improving physical function

Lowers Blood Pressure

In addition to replacing muscle, reducing fat and revving up metabolic rate, research reveals many health-related reasons for performing regular strength exercise. These include lower resting blood pressure, better blood lipid levels, greater glucose usage, increased bone mineral density, less low-back pain, reduced arthritic discomfort, faster gastrointestinal transit and improved psychological profiles.
