What is in your workout? Do you combine balance & strength training? Here are some benefits:
—>Increases strength and muscles mass. Muscle loss happens through aging and a lack of regular exercise. Add balance with that and it helps with muscle isolation – during balance training you have to maintain stabilization and you are force to engage and individual muscle predominantly so that you are not using other muscles to help you “cheat”.
—>Increases metabolic rate. Sensible strength training result in the use of more calories all day long and reduces the likelihood of fat accumulation. Add balance with that and your body has to work that much harder to stabilize – in turn this helps you to burn more calories.
—>Increase bone mineral density. Slowing down the rate of bone mineral density loss can decrease chances of osteoporosis in later life. Add balance and it helps with core stabilization and this in turn helps to improve your coordination, athletic skill and posture.
