Why might you want to add resistance training into your routine if you don’t already have a weekly resistance training session in place?

Study Summary

A recent meta-analysis associated muscle-strengthening exercises with a 10–17% reduced risk of death from any cause, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

The amount of resistance training needed for these benefits were found to be 30–60 min/week for reduced risk of heart disease and cancer, and 60 min/week+ for diabetes.

The Hearty Take

There is a body of research to support this, showing that resistance training is beneficial and crucial to overall health and disease prevention. A simple habitual act, such as weekly resistance training, likely helps prevent premature death from any cause and helps decrease the risk for disease!
