Weight Lifting

"Weight lifting does so much more than build pecs and biceps. It causes the body to burn calories all day long and even while you sleep. It protects joints from wear and tear. Bones become denser and less prone to injury. Strength training reduces body fat, arthritic pain, and muscle loss as we age. It increases metabolism and lowers the risk of diabetes because it improves insulin sensitivity."
