Range of Motion Personal Coach, Jen Hunter, explores the benefits of strength training in mitigating the effects of menopause.
Changes in hormone levels after menopause are associated with decreased bone density, reduced muscle mass, reduced strength and increased body fat.
Whilst these factors of ageing are relevant to both men and women, menopause is associated with an acceleration of the onset of these declines. With this in mind, it is more important than ever that women take positive steps to reduce the adverse effects of menopause on the body.
Failing to act puts women at an increased risk of physical decline.
Strength training is an excellent way to counter the adverse effects of ageing.
- Strength training offsets the loss of muscle mass and increases bone density.
- Strength training improves balance, coordination, and functional capacity.
- It can help reduce the risk of accidents and falls and ultimately lead to increased longevity.
It is never too late to start strength training to improve your health and well-being.
