Strength training benefits - Reason 6

Increased bone mineral density

Strength training put demand on your bones in 2 ways. The direct stress that is applied to the bones and the pressure from the muscles growing and working creates tension on the bones. This causes the bone to lay down minerals and will over time increase the density and health of your bones. Adults lose bone density at a rate of around 2 percent every decade however with strength training you can reverse this by stimulating the production of minerals.
