What does strength training do for you?
The practice of strength training can bring positive changes to the body, both internally and externally. Overall, strength training helps to increase body mass and strength, strengthen tendons, ligaments, and bones, and improve neuromuscular coordination.
Strength training reinforces tendons and ligaments:
Strengthening tendons and ligaments in bodybuilding makes them sturdier and more enduring. This also helps prevent pain that may appear after a long or intense physical effort. In running lessons, for instance, tendons are put to the test—they suffer considerable shocks from which they sometimes have trouble recovering.

Improve muscle mass:
With suitable training and a well-built diet, bodybuilding allows you to target specific muscles and increase muscle mass. Consuming protein after strength training helps reduce body fat in favor of muscle mass gain. Developing muscles is critical for improving the aesthetics of the upper body and lower body.
Bodybuilding allows you to precisely target the muscles you want to work with intensity. Strength training promotes muscular growth by increasing the size and volume of your muscles.
The stimulating effects of bodybuilding on the basal metabolic rate:
Strength training can increase metabolic work and increase daily energy expenditure by approximately 100 calories. This is the equivalent of a piece of fruit or a glass of fruit juice, for example. Training creates micro-lesions in the muscles, which require extra effort from the body to repair. As such, the body consumes and burns more calories outside of physical effort. And as part of a low-calorie (fat loss) diet, weight training helps get rid of fatty tissue more efficiently. It improves the renewal of proteins which are the basis of muscle composition.
Has benefits for the cardiovascular system and health:
With weight training, the muscles consume better oxygen. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels decline over time. Weight training helps to increase the size of the heart (which is also a muscle). The various physical activities have one thing in common: they work our cardiovascular system.
