Friday Fitness: Strength Training Exercises

I found this beauty on Pinterest, and it is perfect! Strength training is such a great idea! The Mayo Clinic recommends strength training because “Strength training can help you tone your muscles and improve your appearance. With a regular strength training program, you can reduce your body fat, increase your lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently. Better yet, strength training doesn’t have to take as long as you might think. For most people, one set of strength exercises for major muscle groups performed two to three times a week is sufficient. ”  The Mayo Clinic also says that strength training strengthens your bones, helps control your weight by burning energy more efficiently, makes you stronger, and helps manage chronic conditions (see Strength training: Get stronger, leaner, healthier). Here is a list of exercises with video instructions from the Mayo Clinic you can try too!  Give it a try!
